I liked it. The beginning really drew me into this paranormal world that Ciera was forced to sign up for because it meant safety for her sister. But like all business deals not placed in writing or seriously overlooked, her sister ended up taken, and she’s decided to go after her. No matter the cost.
When I read a story, I like to think there’s a solid beginning, middle and end. This one didn’t quite have that, as exciting and hot as it was, so this read more to me like a gloriously lengthy novella. Like I said, the beginning was great, and their descent into Hell was entertaining and didn’t bore me in the slightest. I loved the details done by the authors, the way I felt like I was standing in Hell looking up at the writhing bodies or hopeless souls. It actually made me think of the various versions I’ve seen of Dante’s Inferno time and time again, comparing the multiple stories and artwork and how different or similar the rings of Hell were. The ending was a little abrupt and if more had been going on before it ended, like a more solid build up with the guys and why it’s such a great instant thing, I wouldn’t have been as 4-stars as I feel right now. I will most definitely read the second book and if you enjoy Hell and slow-burning reverse harems, check this out.
