Rayea isn't daddy's little girl, even if he is the most powerful fallen angel around. He wants her to take an active role in the family business. But she's not interested in his schemes for world domination. Instead she wants to spend her time shopping on the Internet, rescuing humans from a horrific eternity, and practicing martial arts with her seven foot hellhound. Then one day everything changes.

It sounded like it might make for an interesting twist. And the way Hell is set up like a business was kind of neat. They use computers and modern technology to keep track of humans going into and out of Hell. The Hell Hounds weren’t like I’m used to, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

It’s mostly a light read, not lots of background information, and nothing that you have to concentrate on or you’ll miss it. We didn’t really get a lot explained, but since the book is fairly short that was expected. I’m not sure what the point of shooting people who were supposed to enter Hell was though. Yes, it made for a grisly scene for Rayea (though not explicit for readers), but if they’re being sent to Hell, aren’t they already dead?

It was definitely cute, and I’ve already picked up book two (first two books are free as of me writing this. Check before you buy to be sure that is still true.) If you like books about vampires, and enjoy funny and light YA, I’d recommend this book.
