Thomas creates a hell that is the logical extent of some of the scarier preachers' teachings these days. Vividly imagined and pleasantly goth, in the beauty it creates from the worst horrors imaginable.
The plot itself is more or less straightforward- it's a travelogue, well sort of. It's the ideas and characters that make this a 5-star. Our hero puts a gun into his mouth and pulls the trigger, but unfortunately, he guessed wrong. He wakes up in hell, and his head promptly repairs itself. He travels, he meets people, he saves a hot demon chick, becomes the catalyst for a demon rebellion... you know, same old.
As always, fascinating, thought provoking, and great fun. Enjoy.
The reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is that I found the ending a bit weak. It left the door open for sequels which is ok but was a bit of a let down after a solid story.
