About the Author
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

After loving See You in Hell, I was terribly excited to read this third installment. I'm having a hard time articulating, even to myself, why I did not enjoy this one as much as the last. It entertained certainly, and I read it quickly, but it didn't completely work for me for reasons that I will try to describe below. It's a very different kind of story than See You in Hell-- if See you in Hell is like the Office If David Brent/Michael Scott were satan, then Mel goes to Hell is The Inferno if Dante were a nude angel.
What I loved:
I really enjoyed the unique blend of Christian and Greek mythology. We bump into so many interesting historical figures, I was continually looking forward to who I'd see next. A also continued to love Mel as a lead. She is more badass here, and we learn that she is far more important than we initially thought, yet she is still primarily a force of good, fueled by compassion. Viewing the horrors of hell through her empathetic eyes helps to keep the horribleness of what we are witnessing in perspective. Her bumping into former work colleagues in hell is also rather numerous and enjoyable.
What I didn't love:
First, I felt as though this whole story was something of a contrivance. It felt as though unrealistic things *had* to happen in order to make Mel walk through hell nude, to fulfill an early proclamation in the book. (For example, she can summon cat food but not a bra?) I could forgive this on its own if everything else aligned perfectly, but I had two other complaints: first, I didn't feel invested enough in the romance. I didn't have enough time to really attach to Mel and Luce as a couple (or to really love Luce at all) before their happiness it threatened, which stole a lot of the emotional punch of the walk through hell, at least in my opinion--everyone has different reactions and preferences when it comes to romance stories. And my second qualm was that I could not very well visualize much of Mel's journey. I thought that Carlton's writing style was a perfect and effective match for Welcome to Hell and See you in Hell--humorous economical, and brisk. However, for a story about suffering and a long journey, I think a more descriptive style would be more effective--something that brings setting to vivid life and makes you feel immersed-- smelling, seeing, feeling along with the character. In this book, I knew how Mel felt, but could rarely picture where she was-- a problem for a book about a journey.
Despite any of these complaints, overall I have found this to be a vey enjoyable series and I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store next for Mel and her sexy devil.
I admit to cursing the author to Hell at the end of the last book as I wanted to find out what happened next. So when I got the opportunity to read this book I was super excited to do so and I’m excited to say that it was a fantastic read. It grabbed me at the first page and didn’t let go till the end.
There was a holy crap moment early in the book which while it was a surprise that I really did not see coming it set into play the rest of the book nicely. Way to snag a reader’s attention.
Once again the author has led us the reader on a fun filled romp through the delicate landmine that is Heaven and Hell. You will get glimpses of past characters in Lillith, Persephone and my favourite imp Merihim as well as new characters that you may develop a soft spot for.
I for one am looking forward to the next book that I suspect Luce will take over and won’t that be a treat. If you, like me read a lot of paranormal books and sometimes like to read something in that genre but not so serious then this is the series for you. Start with Welcome to Hell which is permanently free and take it from there. These books are a fun read and well worth every cent.
The book is an entertaining romp as Mel determinedly makes her way through the various levels of Hell, and we're introduced to a cast of madcap and crazy characters who are in charge of the various levels. These characters are delightfully flawed, thoroughly entertaining, and beautifully written by an author who truly creates an enjoyable romp through mythology mixed with 21st century situations.
It's so much fun to read about Demelza's characters and they come alive and have the ability to create a great amount of amusement in this particular reader's mind.
I thoroughly recommend these books to other readers, and I'm looking forward to the release of the fourth book in the series when it becomes available in 2015.
While I admit that I enjoyed the satire of the corporate atmosphere better, Mel Goes to Hell is a spoof on the biblical hell and an excellent continuation of the story. I'll be looking forward to when the next installment is released!
Top international reviews
When I read the part where he was damned back to hell I started to cry for Luce, his love for Mel really showed here.
Mel can’t be dead she was supposed to be the strongest out of them all. As I progressed through the book things started to change and I again smiled.
Demelza in a few paragraphs had me smiling, laughing, crying and smiling again.
There were times you could not help but laugh at the antics Mel and Luce got themselves into, even Demons could not refuse her.
Will the despair eventually get to Mel?
Will Mel get to Lucifer in time?
You travel with Mel from one tantalizing chapter to another trying to find Luce. Just when you think she has at last found him something else gets in the way, time and time again.
At the end, the decision is whether Mel is going to turn around and go back or try to take Luce with her.
Is this the final episode of Mel and Luce or just the beginning…you will have to by the book to find out.
I could not put this book down, no matter what the time was, believe me 3.15 in the morning when you have to go to work the next day is very late.
Demelza Carlton has a way of bringing life to her characters. Thank you Demelza I for one cannot wait for the next book 3 ‘To Hell and Back’ to be released in 2015.
