The first bonus is that the book starts with a recap, so if for some starnge reason you didn't read it first and then just decided to pick this up you will have a good idea of what has gone on before. Next, I have to say this is one of the cooler concepts and I love how Jack is in Hell, but his gaming buddies that he is going into battle with have no idea of the truth. It leads to some seriously funny moments, and some that would be extremely irritating to you if you were Jack. Can you imagine going into a life and death battle only to hear your comtrade munching a snack while you are trying desperately to stay alive?
Next, this is an awesom team-up with J.A. Cipriano & Conner Kressley, who work together as hell as Leopold and Loeb. They make quite a pair, and it never occured to me how many time Cipriano has teamed up with someone. He's good at it, as I have yet to find any flaws in his work. The story is fast, furious, and full of brimstone and hellfire. Iron Jack is really going to work if he wants to save his guildmates and himself. Just remember, he's playing for keeps.
Now, I have to take a deep breath because this is the place where I talk about the Narration. Jeff Hays and SBT really hit their stride with this book. They pull out all the stops and help to create an auidtory experience that hasn't been seen since the old time radio programs tried to make you see the story with your mind. Hays' delivery is as near perfect as you can get without having events spool out live before your eyes. He crushes every voice that he does, and you really feel like you are experiencing the story in THX (or something).
Can I just say that the cover to the book is Be A Dee AH S S! Jack looks like he is ready to whoop some but, and who be he who stands in his way! The story runs just shy of five full hours of run time, so this is a quick enjoyable romp into Hell. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Escape from Hell is the fast moving second part of the Skull Throne series. This fantasy game book is intense and full of action with a fair amount of humor thrown in as well. It's a bit of a cliffhanger ending. I'm looking forward to the next book!
Contains language and violence. I'd recommend it for teens and older.
The narrator of the audiobook is very good!
