Bloody Red Buchanan and Crimson Kate O’Toole sail against the tides of Hell.
1640. The Age of Pirates. Bloody Red Buchanan and Crimson Kate O’Toole sail for eastern seas and the Isle of Shadow, looking for treasure. Their galleons take them into the tides of Hell. More of their crews die than stay alive as they fight the ancient sorcery of an undying priest of Dagon and the sorcerer with efreet who follow his commands. The seas will fill with blood, and Hell will scream with the freshly dead, before these pirates fight their way free of the evils they have loosed.
Heaven lays down the law and Hell gets more Hellish in Lawyers in Hell, marking the return of Heroes in Hell™, the greatest shared universe of all times. The Commandments weren’t merely suggestions – and there were over three hundred of them. And now, as the Higher Powers send auditors through the underworlds to dispense yet greater injustice, heroes and villains from all of history are about to be reminded that sin doesn’t pay … and in Hell, neither does virtue. All this and more peril in Perdition await in 22 tales that will make you fear for your immortal soul…
Sometimes the day you die is only the beginning of a new job.
Piper Willow dies the summer after her high school graduation and finds herself in a spiritual terminal called the Station. She’s given only two choices: Move on to the unknown where she’ll be forced to spend an eternity in her own personal hell or be trained as a Volunteer and return to Earth as the subconscious for a person in need of outside assistance. Does Piper have what it takes to save a life, to be the nagging voice inside another person’s head? Or will she fail and end up lost and tormented…forever?
“Excuse me, Niles…I mean, Mr. Abbott. But, where are we?”
“I’ll explain everything to you dear, just as soon as we reach the Station.”
“What station? We aren’t in the hospital? Where’s my Dad?”
“No Piper, this isn’t the hospital, and your father is at home…he’s fine. Please, follow me.”
He turns away and continues on through the light. I hang my head, staring at my bare feet as we walk. Even though my cuts are gone, I keep rubbing my arm. It’s soothing. I almost bump into Niles when he stops abruptly.
“We’re here,” he says softly.
A Review from K.S. Haigwood – “Truly one of the best novels I’ve read in a long time. I can’t say enough about this book, but spoilers are not my thing, so I will just say as much as I can without over doing it. Don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but I do want to encourage you to read it.
I can only imagine how many people think about commiting suicide in this cruel world every day. Whether it’s work, family, lifestyle or something tragic that has happened that one believes they can’t possibly go on living with anymore, ‘The Station’ gives those that have given up another option besides Hell(although that is totally still an option). Being a volunteer is not an easy task, nor is it something that should be chosen lightly. Ride with Piper on her journey in the after-life. I promise you will be picking up ‘Dying To Remember’ as soon as you finish the last page. I highly recommend this novel to anyone between the ages of 14 – 100.”
