Hell is a city. Forget the old-fashioned sulphurous pit you may have read about.

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.

If you believe in Heaven and Hell I'm sure you have a wonderful vision of just what Heaven looks like, but have you ever wondered what Hell looks like and what goes on there? Well, look no further. The author of this book, Edward Lee, gives you an insight into Hell and all it's workings and it will scare the bejusus out of you for sure.! Cassie knew that her sister went to Hell because she committed suicide. Even though Cassie is still among the living, she found a way to get into hell and search for her sister and all Hell breaks loose, as the cliche goes...LOL...Without giving away anymore details, just be assured that you will get a tour of Hell that you will never forget. I couldn't put this book down as I got so caught up in all the action and excitement, so I would hope that you would also get this book and go to Hell for your own frightening tour! Enjoy...the tour bus is about to leave!

This was my first book by Edward Lee, and I must say it was a delightful, fun read.

Dante's Inferno meets the 21st century.

This book is original, insightful and just plain fun. The characters are well written and lovable, even the ones from hell.

The story is so far out in left field it actually makes you think a bit. I couldn't put it down. A really enjoyable experience.

I understand there is a sequel. I'm going to order it now.

Reads like a Quinten Tarentionn (spelling?) movie. Gory, exciting.
