Best-selling author Ed Greenwood kicks off the bold new Hellmaw series with this raw, violent, sexy tale of three humans who discover the hard way that ruthless daemons live among us on Earth - and regard us as cattle. In Hellmaw: Your World Is Doomed, some daemons want to rule humankind, some want to love us, some want to become crime lords, and some just want to get back home - but to all of them, humans are to be devoured at will. Hungry daemon coming? Why worry? After all, your world is doomed.
An interesting depiction of a dark new world where twisted and perverted demons live among us in secret!
This first story defines these alien and devious antagonists that hide amidst humans with grotesque yet intriguing and strange imagery, creating an eerie feeling that, if such creatures really did live among us, our world would definitely be doomed!
The tone of the narrator, whose voice coincidently sounds a bit like Mr. Greenwood's, contributes to giving a surrealistic and slightly humorous mood to this dark tale.
On the negative side, I did find it a bit difficult to relate to any of the characters in the story, and it seemed to me that some of the more sexually explicit content somehow lacked real purpose at times, hence the three stars for the story, but these are minor gripes.
Overall, a very promising start for this new series.
I'm already downloading the next two volumes!
Also, the cover art rocks!

I for one love gratuitous sex, the rauchier the better! this book however, even the sex couldn't help! I kept waiting for the story to show up, but all I got was a random collection or violent scenes strung together with violent sex. At the end of the book all I couldremember were a disjointed collection of violent sex and it wasn't even good sex at that. save your money I wish I did!
