HELL'S BELLES

Author(s): 

Kessler's debut novel will captivate
fans of Sherrilyn Kenyon and Laurell
K. Hamilton from the very first page. Adding interesting new characters to the dark fantasy genre, this first novel in the Hell on Earth series is sure to have readers salivating over the release of the next book. The novel is steamy, humorous and fast-paced, with tons of imagery and symbols that take it
to a deeper level, similar to that of Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. Kessler's writing alludes to Dante's Divine Comedy and other elements, demonstrating that this novel was researched well and written even better. Two giant thumbs up for this exciting new author.

Once a powerful succubus, Jezebel has a bounty placed on her head by Hell and must take on a human identity. Working as an exotic dancer seems to be a great fit for her new life, until she meets the dark, haunted and super-sexy Paul Hamilton. But there's much more to Paul than she can even imagine, and loving him could turn
out to be worse than being caught
by Hell. (Zebra, Jan., 320 pp., $15.00)
