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?

My Thoughts

I read See You in Hell right after I finished the short little prequel called Welcome to Hell. You certainly don’t need to read Welcome to Hell first though in order to understand See You in Hell. See You in Hell starts out with Mel starting a job in the Hell Corporation, which stands for the Health, Environment, Life and Lands Corporation. (Welcome to Hell just showed Mel’s job interview for her temp position.)

Melody Angel is an angel, working as a temp in the Hell Corporation to try and see if the rumors that Lucifer is there and planning some sort of big takeover are true. Mel thinks that the CEO, Luce Iblis could be Lucifer himself. I loved See you in Hell. It was funny as heck, well planned out and executed and ended up going in a completely different direction that I originally thought it would.

Mel is a wonderful character. She breaks all the stereotypes for angels. She is as good as they come, but she has one heck of a sense of humor on her. Angels are described in the book as prim, proper and kind of uptight. They have an air of superiority around them. But Mel is none of those things. She doesn’t think she is better than anyone else and she has no problem talking to, and joking around with demons. Her co-workers have no idea what to think of her. I loved it. I think I enjoyed her sense of humor most of all. She will drop everything to help someone, is as sweet as can be, but at the same time she can hold her own in a battle of wits and dirty humor with the best of them. She is my kind of angel.

I really liked Luce’s character as well. He is not as cut and dry as I expected him to be. The man has a lot of layers, and it seemed like Mel was the only one able to rattle him long enough to start peeling them back. It was awesome to see some of his more vulnerable side, that only she seemed to be able to bring out.

See you in Hell is a funny read. I really enjoyed myself while reading it. The writing has a very natural flow and the story progresses at a great pace. I can’t wait to see if the author is going to write another book with this one. I could see the end as a nice stopping place, but I liked the characters so much that I want to see more of them. Especially with what happened at the end of this one. I think this story has the potential to be excellent in so many different directions.

About Demelza Carlton

Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.
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.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.
The Ocean’s Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by her suspense thriller Nightmares trilogy. She swears the Mel Goes to Hell series ambushed her on a crowded train and wouldn’t leave her alone.
