Hate your job? Try working in HELL!
Melody Angel takes a job as a temp at the HELL Corporation. Surrounded by eternal bureaucracy gone mad, demons who love making life miserable, and dying for a decent coffee, it may take a miracle for Mel’s mission to succeed. She must find out what evil plans the Lord of Lies has up his sleeve and stop him, using any means necessary. Lucifer and his minions are out to take over the world, but there’s more than money at stake when the Devil drives.
Adding trouble and temptation to Mel’s job is Luce Iblis, the damnably hot CEO, who has set his smouldering eyes on the new office angel and is determined to claim her, body and soul.
Can ultimate evil and angelic perfection escape a limbo of desire and find a paradise of their own?
This is the second instalment in Ms. Carlton’s Mel Goes to Hell series, and it doesn’t disappoint. After beginning the series with the short novelette, I was looking forward to continuing the series and it was a thoroughly entertaining ride.
Ms. Carlton has a vivid imagination, and the power to bring mythology into the modern corporate world with a bang and an entertaining twist.
Mel, the main character in the series is an angel, and finds herself surround by demons in the Hell Corporation, which is predominantly run by demons, and the CEO is suspected of being Lucifer himself.
I love these stories. Admittedly, it has been a steep learning curve for me, as I didn’t have a good grasp on the mythology of angels and demons, but this doesn’t detract from the overall reading experience.
This series is thoroughly recommended, and yet another example of Ms. Carlton’s excellent skills at both writing, and providing great entertainment to her readers.
