Hell Is Here is the second book in the Watchers series, and it's all about Leia going to Hell (because she sold her soul), and having to complete a seemingly impossible mission for a chance to get her soul back. Or, well it actually starts with her waiting around for the Crossroads Demon to collect her, and so she spends her time hunting demons and getting into old habits. She also visits Josh, however they aren't nearly as close as they used to be and Josh is obviously the darker twin, which leaves her worried, even while Leia tries her best to survive in Hell. When the demon finally comes to collect her soul, though, he offers her a choice, a chance to get her soul back if she does something for him, or stay in Hell for all eternity. Naturally she agreed to the chance of getting her soul back, and so they come up with a shaky plan and then she's in Hell, trying to make that plan a reality.
Leia is overwhelmed and unsure of how to get where she needs to be, and being in Demon form, she also has to worry about not giving in and losing control. She meets a little girl who she finds out was born in one of the deeper, darker parts of Hell that she names Alice though, and suddenly she has a guide. A friend. And Alice, although having never known kindness or love before, is a kind soul who can only give. She can do wrong, she was born in Hell after all, but she only helps Leia and the two form a bond. I came to admire Alice for her strength, for her bravery and for her loyalty. She's an admirable character. She sticks by Leia, convinces Leia to leave her when she has to, and still stays standing after all the horrors she's been through in Hell.
Hell is brutal. That's probably not even that great of a word to describe it. It's a red hued world filled with nasty, horrible demons of all sorts, types, colours, shapes, and sizes. There's so many different demons, and yet each were horrifying and most probably made of what nightmares originate from. The descriptions were cringe worthy, so were the demons and their actions. It was brutal to see the way Leia was treated, how the others were treated and how they acted. It's a 'dog eat dog world' as Edward would say, where demons steal, eat each other, r*pe their meals, and have the unfortunate curse of never being able to die. They always regenerate. I have to say though, that I really love the world. It was raw, brutal, horrifying, and most definitely brilliantly written. As harsh as Hell is, I loved the author's vision and the way he wrote Hell.
The torture scenes were horrific, and hard to read, yet not hard at all. They flowed so well that you just got sucked in, and while you hated and was disgusted by the torture, you couldn't help but keep reading. Like I said, it's a brutal world. It just made me reevaluate Leia's strength though, as she kept moving. She didn't stop and cry, or curl up in a ball only to be miserable and get tossed in depression. No. She got back up after healing (she had help) and kept on with her mission.
Overall, I loved reading Hell Is Here and I'm definitely excited for the next installment. The ending shot a twist our way and then Leia was back to being tortured and wow! I just can't wait to see where the author brings us next.
The second book in N.P. Martin’s Watcher’s series was a highly anticipated read for me, and holy demon babies, it did not disappoint!
The story picks up about six months after the end of Hell Is Coming, with Leia living her life as a Watcher and waiting for the crossroads demon to show up and take her to Hell. Her and Josh are not as close since everything they went through. Josh seems to be really distant and wants to deal with his past trauma solo. Leia still lives with Frank at his cabin with Eva and a new dog, Fang.
After the crossroads demon comes to collect Leia’s debt, she says her goodbyes to Josh, Frank, and Eva before meeting him for her trip to Hell. The demon makes Leia an offer: to return her soul, if she kills the king of Hell. They come up with a pretty shaky plan on how she will get to the King and kill him. Having no other choice, Leia makes the deal and enters Hell.
I absolutely loved N.P Martin’s vision of Hell. The Demons were nasty and the descriptions were cringe-worthy. There’s a couple of scenes in this book that made me almost lose my lunch. Leia is in Demon form and has no idea how she’s going to make it to the city and to the King. She quickly finds some help in the form of a little girl that Leia names Alice, who was born in the pits of Hell. Alice becomes her guide and Leia learns that she has endured the unimaginable. I was so captivated during Leia’s journey, and I just adored Alice for the quality’s she possessed after being born into an eternity of suffering. N.P. Martin writes such strong, admirable characters, even if they aren’t supposed to be ‘good’.
The hardest scene for me to read in this one was when Leia got captured and was subjected to non-stop torture. I was literally curling my fingers and toes the whole time I was reading it. It was hard-core!
I think that’s about all the details I should give…the story gets exciting and frustrating near the end. Leia learns some SHOCKING information right before a torturous ending that made me want to pull my hair out! But I sure as hell can’t wait for the next book!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
