The rural tiny town of
Brandell cradled in a little
valley in southern
doesn’t have much to boast about it. Well, except in the beautiful, clear,
bubbling spring is the Gate to Hell. Don’t worry though because there is a
small group of women in Brandell who have guarded the Gate down through the
centuries, passing their witchy powers to their daughters on down the line.
Plus, when Lucifer visits once a month he’s not what one would expect
considering he’s in charge of Hell. West Virginia
When one day Lucifer, who prefers to be called Harry, decides he’s had enough of Hell and quits, heading to
to be a bartender, people in Brandell start acting very unlike themselves. And
with no Lucifer sitting in his office in Hell guarding his closet portal to our
world, several curious demons manage to fall through the portal and find
themselves among humans. Could things get any worse? Oops. One should never ask
that question when there’s no one guarding the Gate of Hell. Florida
This story has a very different take on how Lucifer got the job as Keeper of Hell and it’s very interesting. Not to mention Lucifer, I mean Harry, is a very likeable guy and not very demonish at all. The writing is good and the plot moves quickly. The characters are likeable if a tad goofy at times and the story is humorous. An all-around enjoyable read.
