Summary

When Cassie's twin sister, Lissa, commits suicide, Cassie discovers she can travel to Hell to retrieve her sister's soul. Cassie thought she knew all about the Hell of legend, but finds Hell has evolved over the millennia into a bustling city full of the damned with looming skyscrapers, crowded streets, systemized evil, and atrocity as the status quo.

Hell is a city. It stretches, literally, without end-a labyrinth of smoke and waking nightmare. Just as endlessly, sewer grates belch flame from the sulfur fires that have raged beneath the streets for millennia. Clock towers spire in every district, by public law, but their faces have no hands; time is not measured here in seconds or hours but in atrocity and despair. In the center of this morass of stone and smoke and butchery and horror stands the 666-floor Mephisto Building, where Gargoyles prowl the wind-blown ledges and from whose highest garrets the innocent are hung from gibbets and left to rot for eons. The lone occupant of the very top floor looks down upon his dominion and smiles a smile that is brighter than 1,000 suns. Here, yes, everyone is dead yet everyone lives forever. Welcome to the Mephistopolis. Welcome to the city of Hell. Welcome.

The Awesome Edward Lee

I read all the Edward Lee books. Yes there horrifying, yes there gory and yes they leave you disturbing images but why else would you read Edward Lee! Awesome as usual. Audible needs to get off their butts and add the rest of the collection!!!

Interesting As Hell

It’s difficult to review this book because it’s so bizarre. Since I read this genre quite a bit the horrific events didn’t bother me at all. The story was enjoyable and the characters were beyond description. One annoying thing was Vea’s voice. It sounded like Marge from Family Guy. The narration was good from the perspective of the words pronounced but the voices weren’t very good. If you like this genre, try it out.

Unique take on hell

Fantastic book. The narrator could use some work on his character voices but other than that he was ok. Such an interesting and unique take on Hell

Horrible Narration

I love a weird twisted tale and this story was definitely that but the narration was so bad I had to force myself to finish it. The narrator's voice did not sound good and his impression of female characters made them sound like an 80 year old chain smoking grandmother. I'm certain that was not the authors intention. Was very disappointed in this book and contemplating returning it.

noise reduction is a thing

these narrators call themselves professionals, and rightly so. That is why I get so annoyed when I purchase an audiobook only to hear background room noise in the "finalized" narration. Getting rid of background noise is audio editing 101. There are absolutely ZERO excuses for the horrible quality of this audiobook!! This guy should be ashamed to have put this out the way it is. Ridiculous!

Hell of a good read

Interesting story with a vividly detailed description of the Infernal City and it's inhabitants. Looking forward to reading the other stories in the series.

Loved Reading It, Loved Hearing It

I read this book years ago and loved it. I've been subscribed to Audible for a few years now too but I recently decided I wanted to rad it again. Only then did I decide to look this book up and there it was. it was great to hear it all over again. Now my kids have shown and interest and they may just be the next ones to listen 😎

A fun and twisted ride through hell

- Josh here I waited quite a while for this book to be put out in audiobook format. This began as I was on a hell kick after listening to "A short stay in hell", "Lost Gods", and "Hell's Super". I waited a bit and finally found through the Edward Lee Fan Page Facebook group that this book had been released in audiobook format. I am glad I waited and gave this a listen. What a gory and interesting tale of how hell operates. Right from the opening chapter, this book drew me in. I was interested to see how Hell would play a role in the story after the first few chapters passed by and was pleasantly surprised at the transition from the flesh world through the dead pass. I thoroughly each of the characters to include Via, Xeke, and Hush. Mr. Lee definitely has a fan and I hope that book three becomes available again through Audible as I only see book two available currently. Mike Bradley did a wonderful job with the narration and really brought to life the gory and disturbing aspects of this story.

A Little Something For Everyone

This is phenomenally written. Amazing creativity. Minor vulgarity. Non-offensive to my Catholic upbringing. Enjoyed immensely.
