Review by

While I did have moments where things didn't flow as well as maybe I might like but overall this was an excellent read. James Stark is back, he's been to hell and back, literally and now he's out for revenge. He's going to find the other people from his magical circle and determine why he was exiled to hell and why they killed his girlfriend. He's learned a skill or two in hell and picked up a souvenir or too as well.He's not a pleasant man, but he's a good friend to people and wants them to be safe and he desperately wants revenge, helping to stop the apocalypse is a good side-effect if he can wrangle it.Kick ass and interesting I liked the read.
