About the Author
J. L. Langland has been obsessed with science fiction and fantasy since Junior High. Upon hearing the job description "High Energy Astrophysicist" in 8th Grade Physical Science, he set out to become one. His express goal to develop trans-warp capability, patent it, license patent rights, make money, build spaceship, go to the stars. OK, well, he got a B.S. in Astrophysics, then his M.S. and Ph.D. in Experimental High Energy Physics. But by that point, he'd realized that there were probably easier ways to make a living than developing warp drives. Turns out, it was rather more difficult than he'd thought in 8th Grade. So, clearly, the better alternative was to use his knowledge of Multiversal Quantum Topology to create a gateway to other planes of existence. OK, that was tricky too and took many years of work, but eventually he perfected Astral Projection and was able to travel the multiverse using the power of his mind. Now he brings to you, the reader, true stories and historical accounts from his adventures on other planes of existence. J.L. "Doc" Langland was raised on Heinlein, Zelazny, Blish, Herbert, Azimov, Chalker, E.E. "Doc" Smith, Katherine Kurtz, MZB, Paul Edwin Zimmer, Anne McCaffrey, Piers Anthony, Anne Rice, Robert Jordan and thousands of others. He began writing for himself in ages past and has published numerous net fiction short stories under various aliases.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Please note that the pre-release version had some text issues on the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Cloud Reader. That was resolved, and new purchases should NOT be affected. There are some reviewers that gave lower reviews due to this, and never changed their reviews even though the problem was resolved.
Though the jumping viewpoints may not be everyone's tumbler of Denubian Choco-Coffee™, the story and characters are consistent, action is lively and fun, and by the end of the book, I was ready for more.
Overall, this was a very fun read.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a standalone novel. If you haven't read the first book "Into the Abyss" (https://www.amazon.com/Into-Abyss-Demons-Astlan-Book-ebook/dp/B00JCJ9X3A), then you will be very lost. These books are a single story broken into book-size pieces, so there is very little retreading of the story. In other words, if you are new to this series start with Book 1 not this one.
I recommend skimming through the last couple chapters of book two if you need a refresher on where everyone's at.
I had no problems reading with the kindle app on my iPhone. Also I received an email after my purches that a updated kindle version has been released.
All the characters in the worlds of this series are believable, deep, and so incredibly entertaining. Some are over the top... But for good reason.
The various worlds, planes, universes, etc, are all interesting, and it's amazing how well the author ties them all together without the story getting muddy.
If you like Olympian, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Tolkien, Doctor Who, um... Just keep adding more mythos, they are all represented in some way in these books, and Oh Boy what a great take on old stories.

Why are you still reading this review? Get the bloody books!
I got the first book on Audible, and read it within a few days. Usually I wait at least a few days before getting another book in a series, but no, I had to get book #2 right away and start that one.
Then when I finished Heavenly Hosts, the third book wasn't available on Audible so I got it on Kindle, which I usually don't do.
And now it's all done! 😢
This is easily one of the best series I've read, and each book just gets better and better. And with all the mysteries, like whether Tom is really Orcus or not, it just makes one want to read more.
Hoping book 4 comes out soon.
