No one really knows if there is a Hell or Heaven. Is Heaven full of clouds and Hell as hot as a pizza oven? Unfortunately for Connor O'Neil, who knows exactly how it feels. It's not wonderful Heaven that he gets to experience firsthand, but rather the dreadful Hell. That's right! Connor has died and went to Hell. How? Well, by chasing after his dog and getting hit by an ice cream truck.

Of course Hell isn't what exactly how people had described it. It has changed over the years. There's still your usual furnaces and dungeons and creepy crawlers. But now Hell isn't too big on physical pain, since they have become more sophisticated. And they also call the unfortunate people who have to go to Hell their "customers." So Hell shouldn't seem too bad for Connor, right?

The worst has yet to come since now Connor is condemned to a corner surrounded by the worst thing ever--educational material. Books are all around him, along with radios blaring out educational programs. Everything fit for his eternal punishment.

Then Connor comes up with a plan, since everyone needs a plan. In order for him to survive Hell he needs to find someone that would absolutely enjoy his corner and trade. So now Connor is out to find the person that is willing to trade for his educational corner.

Witty and absolutely engrossing, Anthony McGowan has cooked up a novel that will make you burst out laughing. HELLBENT is exactly for anyone who needs something to lift them up. With crazy characters and a plot that is ultimately unusual, HELLBENT is a definite page-turner that will keep the reader up all night.
