This was a very enjoyable book. The author keeps things moving along at a good pace and keeps you guessing about one character's true allegiances. I wouldn't say it's 'horror' but it definately is gruesome in description of the inhabitants of Hell. Lee's Hell is a very interesting place that could use more exploration.
I'm hoping a sequel will be coming at some point.
My first Edward Lee book: OHMAHGOSH!!!! Every page had a description of something "horrible" whether it be a street beggar, the subway, even the ever-so mundane motel room. Oozing with gore, this is a tale of a heroine and her journey through the underworld. The ending keeps it open for a sequel. Those Dresden Files are Disney tales compared to Edward Lee's writing.
This isn't Dante's Inferno! Edward Lee hits hard with explicit descriptions of the monsters and sights and scenes in Hell. The story is about twin sisters--Cassie enters Hell to find Lissa, who committed suicide. Cassie is befriended by 3 other punky suicide victims, who become her tour guides through the gross and gory city. I really enjoyed Lee's imaginative monsters and his writing is a quick, easy read.
Exllenct horror book I love the way edward lee writes.
This is a book clive barker would be happy with! also this book is not for minors due to graphic content but great for people who like the occult and satanic idealogy
