Get ready for a wild ride Because Wayne Barlowe is going to take you on a fantastic trip to HELL! The thing the most stands out about this novel is the sheer scope of the imagination of the author. This is really a great book I recommend you give it a shot.

Wayne Barlowe deserves praise for finding an interesting way to retell a classic "sword and sorcery" story. While it's not a perfect work, it's absolutely worth a listen to see how the biblical backstory is woven into the tale. If these characters had been another batch of Tolkein-esque elves and orcs in a forest I would have been bored. Thankfully Barlowe went another route and it really paid off.
Audio note: I would recommend downloading the maximum quality audio if your device supports it. On the lower quality setting the narrator can seem a little flat at times, but I found with the higher quality the nuances in his voice came through.

If you are into "hell in a semi christian setting" this is brilliant. He builds a hell that is truely evil and believable. The plot is not too complicated and is pretty easy to predict, but thats not the major element of this book in my humble opinion, its the setting...and it does that truely well :)

Not quite my cup of tea, not sure how I expected Hell and demons to be portrayed really but something didnt sit right for me the way that they are portrayed here. I suppose being a borderline atheist / agnostic I really should not have chosen this book in the first place, but it seemed an interesting listen and I would say it was that. If you do have religious beliefs however, I expect this book my come close to what you would call blasphemy and you may not enjoy it, so I am not really sure who would find this book an ideal listen.
