Word is out, the soul eater has gone rogue and not even the might of Osiris can stop him. Or so everyone believes. That would suit Ace just fine, but after he narrowly escapes an assassination attempt, he knows it’s just a matter of time before those around him end up in the crosshairs of the gods.
After 500 years on earth, it’s time for Ace to go home. Little does he know, the underworld is hungry for revenge, and what awaits him in the Halls of Judgment could be far worse than any fate on Earth.
The thrilling Amazon bestselling series is back with a whole load of action, bad-assery, and psychotic gods.
Vacation. That’s the reason Ace is in the Hamptons… Or at least that’s the lie that Ace is telling himself and everyone else that will listen. Especially, Cat and Shu. Really, though, judgment has come calling for Ace Dante and his name is Anubis.
Thrust back into Duat with an unsuspecting (and very mortal) Cat, it’s a race against time to save himself and Cat from the Twelve Gates and the Scales of Justice.
Rolling along at a fast clip, this book is action packed from start to finish. Ace and Cat learn more about each other and, through them, we get little clues to their background. Hints I’ll be curious to see if they turn into much bigger things in future books. *rubs hands together with glee* Shu’s appearances in this book showed a lot of dimension and growth and has me wondering about the direction of her character in future. Especially given some of the things she reveals…
As for the setting, I loved getting a look at Duat, the Halls of Judgment, the River of Souls, all of it. The scene setting was detailed and fantastic.
The last 10% of the book or so is a good setup for the next book in the series. And really, this author makes it hard not to love to hate Isis. She is one evil genius of a Goddess. I just wish I could figure out what she has up her sleeve next.
