Gah! This book has made me so confused about my own emotions because I’m feeling all these things that one just should not feel for such characters—
My favorite character is the Grim Reaper, I’m attracted to Death, I actually feel bad for Satan…
Do you see the dilemma? It’s very confusing but also kind of awesome that the author has created such interesting, unique characters and written them so well that I was able to empathize with and/or like them.
But, come on, how can anyone not love Grim? He was just as cocky and playful and deranged as he was in the first book, but still in this really lovable way because he just owned it. And poor Abbadon (A.K.A. Satan)! I feel like I should have hated him for what he tried to do to Izzy, but I completely understood his reasons. I would’ve felt the same way! He just should’ve gone about it with a different method. He was also interesting. And then he would go and say things like this, which only made him even better…
“Yes. Precisely. The mortal world would be overrun with all the vilest souls in history. We’re not talking about a few lost souls wandering around rapping on walls and possessing small children by accident.”
Anyway, it wasn’t just the characters I enjoyed. I don’t think I had ever before read a book that took place entirely in Hell, so that was fun (seriously, I always find that to be a great setting), and Sherri Wingler’s take on Hell and the various different infamous figures and features of it (e.g. Satan, Cerberus, Charon, the river Styx) was interesting. The plot also kept me hooked, especially toward the end, and had even more action than the first book had. Plus the whole thing was pretty damn funny to boot and had me laughing quite often.
So overall this was another hilarious, fun book in the series with interesting characters and even more action than the first!
Fans of Book 1 in Sherri A. Wingler's The Immortal Sorrows series. Anyone who likes YA paranormal romance and a healthy dose of humor in their books. Anyone who likes books set in Hell.
More Books in the Series:
Mortals never see me in their final moments. Isabel saw me. From the very beginning. She saw me, knew me for the monster I am, and still she loved me. That beautiful, young woman with fire in her blood. I wanted her the moment I laid eyes on her. She was perfect, made just for me by a cruel and merciless twist of Fate. Isabel was my mate and my match, in every way, but loving me destroyed her.
Fate stole my love from me, simply to watch me suffer. Oh, it had cost her, but not nearly enough. A few dead Reapers were nothing compared to what I would do when I found her. The River of the Dead could run red with the blood of the guilty, and it would never be enough. My revenge would be a bitter-sweet thing, for it would never bring my Isabel back to me. Once she faced Judgment, she would be lost to me, forever.
I could not accept that. I would not.
