The Infernals by John Connolly
How would you like to take a little walk through Hell?
Atria, a division of Simon & Schuster, sent me an ARC ebook of this story to review (thank you). This book will be published in October. It was published as Hell's Bells in the UK earlier this year.
If you like a rip roaring adventure full of the unexpected, unknown, and unbelievable events, this book is for you. Add it to your TBR list now.
Samuel is a young boy who unfortunately found a hole in the basement of his home that had allowed the denizens of Hell entry to his world. With help of a demon and his dog, he got the portal closed. However, Mrs. Abernathy is one of the worst demons in Hell, and she hasn't forgotten him. In fact, she's working on creating another portal so she can capture him and get back in the good graces of the Great Malevolence. Watch out, Samuel!
I really enjoyed this story. It's a tall tale, and it's full of characters that will make you laugh as well as scare you. Imagine four dwarves who love drinking bad beer and are wicked at heart. You thought the demons were bad? The dwarves are almost worse. Oh, and I forgot to mention there are two cops involved, too.
The story is action packed, full of tongue-in-cheek jokes, and a bit silly. Who couldn't use a good laugh?
