Publisher's Summary

The powerful Lord Sargatanas, Brigadier-general in Beelzebub's host, is restless. For millennia Sargatanas has ruled dutifully over an Infernal metropolis, but he has never forgotten what he lost in the Fall. He is sickened by what he has done and what he has become. Now, with a small event - a confrontation with a damned soul - he makes a decision that will reverberate through every being in Hell. Sargatanas decides to attempt the impossible, to rebel, to win his way Home and bring with him anyone who chooses to follow...be they demon or soul. He will stake everything on fighting all the abominable forces of Hell arrayed against him, when the prize is nothing less than redemption.


What the Critics Say

"Fascinating.” (Guillermo del Toro, Director of Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth)
“Scary stuff? Maybe. Gross and hideous and disgusting? Now and then. There’s also hope and loyalty and internecine plotting—politics as usual and unusual….Hopes, fears, escapes, affections, acceptances all roil in the ashy smokes above and around the characters.” (The San Diego Union-Tribune)
“A fierce and stout narrative that echoes certain other fantasy classics even more so than it does the canonical authors Milton and Dante, while retaining a splendid novelty of conception….given all these inflowing currents into the mighty river of Barlowe's own imagination, the book attains a weighty magnificence.” (SciFi.com)

Fantastic reading

If you are into "hell in a semi christian setting" this is brilliant. He builds a hell that is truely evil and believable. The plot is not too complicated and is pretty easy to predict, but thats not the major element of this book in my humble opinion, its the setting...and it does that truely well :)

interesting idea.

Not quite my cup of tea, not sure how I expected Hell and demons to be portrayed really but something didnt sit right for me the way that they are portrayed here. I suppose being a borderline atheist / agnostic I really should not have chosen this book in the first place, but it seemed an interesting listen and I would say it was that. If you do have religious beliefs however, I expect this book my come close to what you would call blasphemy and you may not enjoy it, so I am not really sure who would find this book an ideal listen.
