Publisher's Summary

When Cassie's twin sister, Lissa, commits suicide, Cassie discovers she can travel to Hell to retrieve her sister's soul. Cassie thought she knew all about the Hell of legend, but finds Hell has evolved over the millennia into a bustling city full of the damned with looming skyscrapers, crowded streets, systemized evil, and atrocity as the status quo.

Hell is a city. It stretches, literally, without end-a labyrinth of smoke and waking nightmare. Just as endlessly, sewer grates belch flame from the sulfur fires that have raged beneath the streets for millennia. Clock towers spire in every district, by public law, but their faces have no hands; time is not measured here in seconds or hours but in atrocity and despair. In the center of this morass of stone and smoke and butchery and horror stands the 666-floor Mephisto Building, where Gargoyles prowl the wind-blown ledges and from whose highest garrets the innocent are hung from gibbets and left to rot for eons. The lone occupant of the very top floor looks down upon his dominion and smiles a smile that is brighter than 1,000 suns. Here, yes, everyone is dead yet everyone lives forever. Welcome to the Mephistopolis. Welcome to the city of Hell. Welcome.

The Awesome Edward Lee

I read all the Edward Lee books. Yes there horrifying, yes there gory and yes they leave you disturbing images but why else would you read Edward Lee! Awesome as usual. Audible needs to get off their butts and add the rest of the collection!!!

Unique take on hell

Fantastic book. The narrator could use some work on his character voices but other than that he was ok. Such an interesting and unique take on Hell

A Little Something For Everyone

This is phenomenally written. Amazing creativity. Minor vulgarity. Non-offensive to my Catholic upbringing. Enjoyed immensely.

Interesting

The story itself is entertaining enough even if EL severely over does stereotypes. Almost disgustingly so. And the narrator doesn’t help that by adding over the top voices to the characters it’s almost hard to listen to his voice sometimes. Cassie the main character is a bit of a ditz and it’s annoying some of the obvious things that need to be explained.

However I think the story itself is good, with a few twists I was pleasantly surprised by. It leaves off with a pretty good cliffhanger for the next book and I look forward to listening to that one as well. I just hope it’s read by someone else.

Better than Clive Barker

This reminded me a little of The Scarlet Gospels, but I enjoyed it much more. The performance was a little shaky; some lousy voices, blips in room tone, etc., but the story made up for it. Really good!

this is a great book but the narrator isn't

this is a great book but the narrator isn't that great. I've read the book myself and enjoyed it but not so much listening to it from this guy.
