What if Hell was real? What if it was divided into regions and could be manipulated at the blink of an eye? What if Hell was survival for some and entertainment for others?
Six people wake to find themselves in strange surroundings without food, water, or explanation. Unable to escape, patience is lost and tempers flare as impossible things happen far too often, leading to the only conclusion that makes sense—they must be dead.
H narratives: Divulgence, is the mind-altering epic introduction to an afterlife never imagined, a journey like no other and a disturbing truth—death is not what we thought.
I enjoyed the Hell out of this (so to speak). This was an adventure that could only be had in Hell.
The beginning had wonderful introductions to the characters, or more precisely, their exits. From this world, anyway. This part really got my attention. It made me hyper aware of what could go horribly wrong in even the most mundane of life's situations. Then, for whatever the reason, the characters arrive in Hell.
A small debate on <i>why</i> they are in Hell takes place a few chapters in, and the author covers a few Biblical, and non-Biblical theories on this by way of dialogue between the characters and their demon host/instructor/guy in charge, Sunesis.
Sunesis! He's funny as Hell. Sarcastic, imaginative, and down right mean. He has a job to do and he enjoys every minute of it. Here's where things go from bad to worse for a few of the specially chosen of Hell's new citizens.
Mental torment, physical tragedy (but they're dead, right? So why does it hurt so much?!) crazy rooms, tunnels, caves, mutant creatures, vats of boiling oil (mmmm...tastes like chicken) are set upon these people, three men and three women, just to torment them? Or to prepare them for worse to come..?
By the end of the story I was involved with each of the characters, separately and as a team. Rooting for them to overcome everything Sunesis and Hell itself could throw at them.
I knew this was going to be a series going into it, but I was still a little disappointed when it ended on a cliffhanger. However, this was gory, horrific, humorous and adventurous enough for me to really want to read the next in the series.
