Hi Reading Ninjas, have you ever wondered what If? What if all you knew about the universe was wrong? What if history was not as we've always been told? What if the division between heaven and hell were not as you believed? If the very angels and demons were not as religion says and the differences are so strange and vast your mind is blown by the very concept? What if - brought to you today (despite sitting in my TBR since 2019) by...
SEE YOU IN HELL by Demelza Carlton
This book presented me with these very questions. What if? What if HELL is a corporation that's attempting to take over the world from it's head office in Western Australia. What if angels and demons walk amongst us, seemingly normal people living their normal lives? What if angels were beings of prejudice, adamantly anti demon, always believing the worst and treating them as such - the worst beings in the universe. What if demons were just trying to get through the days since they fell from heaven? Living as humans, celebrating the Melbourne Cup, Christmas, taking holidays and living with crappy office coffee? What if Lucifer were just a sad, lonely demon who hides behind a stereotypical sleazy exterior?
What if everything we all know isn't so? What if a special angel joins the office? What if she sees the way things actually are and not how heaven believes them to be? What if she is capable of changing everything without even realising? What if?
I really loved this book, it killed me to put it down in order to do my day job. This is book 2 in a series apparently, but it's not a book that has to follow on from the last which is great. The author is another first for me, and I'm now officially a fan. Straight onto Amazon to search for more by her and more in the series. Congrats Demelza, you've scored yourself a fan in this Ginger Reading Ninja.
Melody Angel takes a job as a temp at the HELL Corporation. Surrounded by eternal bureaucracy gone mad, demons who love making life miserable, and dying for a decent coffee, it may take a miracle for Mel's mission to succeed. She must find out what evil plans the Lord of Lies has up his sleeve and stop him, using any means necessary. Lucifer and his minions are out to take over the world, but there's more than money at stake when the Devil drives.
Adding trouble and temptation to Mel's job is Luce Iblis, the damnably hot CEO, who has set his smouldering eyes on the new office angel and is determined to claim her, body and soul.
Can ultimate evil and angelic perfection escape a limbo of desire and find a paradise of their own?
