Publisher's Write-Up

Hell is invading the Earth. To compensate, the Heavens are descending. The End of the World is now if Cameron Mortice and his associates cannot rectify the problems. One team must take a trip direct into the bowels of Hell to restore order there, while a second team stays topside. But there is dissension in the ranks and not all the protagonists are quite who they make themselves out to be. Some of them aren't even who they think they are. Old debts, conspiracies and revenge. Armageddon's bad enough without making it personal.

Warning - This book is not suitable for younger readers. We would recommend 18 and above.

Blood Lust 3: Revelations is, as you have probably guessed, the third book in the Blood Lust series. In this instalment the characters introduced in the first two books are brought together to journey to Hell and rescue Cameron's father, whose earthly body has been possessed by a rather nasty Demon.

Whereas before, in the previous books, Cameron has been the invincible one, while others around him have been more susceptible to harm, the roles are reversed when he and Gillian make their journey to hell, giving up the powers they held on Earth. To protect them they are accompanied by the souls of Danny (along for a laugh more than anything else) and Penny, leaving their bodies behind to be protected by three witches.

So starts a war between Heaven and Hell with all manner of protagonists; Angels, Demons, Zombies, Death, Witches, Vampires and the Army, who, to be perfectly honest, are somewhat out of their depth.

What I rather liked was the author's imaginative descriptions of Hell and some of the tortures. Not just your run of the mill 'impaled on a spike and prodded with hot pokers stuff' but the more fiendish soul destroying (pardon the pun:) monotonous ones; watch out for the Shifting Sands, the Long Walk Skies and the Flesh Fields.

The story of the Demon Sextus and his life is a gem. I must warn you it is extremely gruesome in some of its imagery and all very rude but I couldn't help starting with the giggles near the end of this particular part of the story (at this point I may be as sick as the author, which is worrying) and quickly worked up to laughing out loud.

Who should read this book? Well, I certainly wouldn't give it to my mum that is for sure... nor anyone under a certain age, say 30. You have got to like your humour very dark and not be put off by the sicker side of human nature. That said I personally enjoyed it, as well as the first two in the series. It was all very well written with some excellent word play. If you like books such as Iain Banks' Complicity and don't mind a Fantasy/Horror slant to a story you will not find much better. Hope there will be more.
