Book Description

From the 2013 John W. Campbell Award Winner and Two Time Parsec Award Winner

Praise for the Afterlife Series
"It’s like a Unifying Theory for all religions and mythologies, binding together diverse cosmologies into a coherent, end-of-the-world tale in which the deepest human values may not be enough to save us. Full of surprises and pointed observations about human behaviour." ~Minister Faust, author of From the Notebook of Dr. Brain and The Alchemists of Kush

"Lafferty is a funny writer, with a clear obsession for afterlife mythos and an admirable hand at drawing likable characters... one of the most promising writers... It's great to see her turning out such good work already!" (Cory Doctorow)

The popular Afterlife Series continues with journeys into the realms of punishment.

Kate and Daniel are reunited, but they have to return to their duties in traveling the afterlife. There are stolen souls suffering without cause in Hell, and only they can help. Kate is back in her corporeal body, but is distracted by her recent brush with the divine. Daniel carries the magic of an old god, the sword of a death goddess, as well a grudge against the deity who tricked him into losing nearly everything.

Can Kate and Daniel - not to mention the cosmos - handle everything the Afterlife throws at them?

Nominated for the 2007 Parsec Award for Best Novella Podcast

5.0 out of 5 stars I listened to this about 5 times January 25, 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
I am a 55 year old man and this is one of my favorite stories. I discovered it in a Pod Cast years ago and it struck me as one of the most original takes on the afterlife I have ever heard. This would make a Great HBO or Show Time series.
I love her writing. I only wish there were more stars I could give it.

I really enjoyed the authors take on many of the worlds mythologies combined with a bemusing mix of romance and discovery. The characters are well done and the book is not predictable, containing many surprises.

Kate and Daniel, pick up their next journey with their ventures through Hell. They are now needed to save the souls that are missing from Heaven, and release those that shouldn't be in Hell. Along the way, they find things are in chaos, and they might be able to help restore some order to order of things. With the help of his guide and best friend, Daniel journeys through Hell to find his sisters missing soul and others.

We pick up exactly where Heaven ended.

Kate realizes Daniel's not the same as he was. He's changed, but in recognizing that she realizes she's changed as well. Kate has a slightly different view of things now as she had been an unborn soul. Daniel has realized he has the godlike power to douse flaming souls, and even help a few to return to Heaven. And so much more. I wonder if they are finding a faith. Seems to be Daniel's and Kate's adventure is what he and she needs for their heart and souls to heal.

We see many versions and levels of Hell. What people "think" should be Hell, even if not, depending on Religion. Very neat how Mur Lafferty does this. I feel I'm getting a small view of a large setting through an intriguing story. I want to see if they get through and what they learn on their journey.

There is fun mixed in with a bit more serious story. I feel there is more to this story and world than I realized. An underlying thread to what they are going through and where they will end up. The changes they go through to be who they are to be. I am very intrigued by this. I want to keep going as fast as I can to see and know! By the end I felt the heaviness and the weight of the story and why. Now I know, and it makes sense with all I felt earlier. Happy and yet bitter sweet ending. I love it. It brought tears to my eyes.

Oh, I'm hooked. I love the harsh journey and actions Kate and Daniel have gone through. I'm 100% invested now. I will be finishing this series!
