(From the publisher):
I've been told to go to Hell more times than I can count. But this time I'm actually going.
My nameís Bobby Dollar, sometimes known as Doloriel, and of course, Hell isnít a great place for someone like me--Iím an angel. They donít like my kind down there, not even the slightly fallen variety. But they have my girlfriend, who happens to be a beautiful demon named Casimira, Countess of Cold Hands. Why does an angel have a demon girlfriend? Well, certainly not because it helps my career.
Sheís being held hostage by one of the nastiest, most powerful demons in all of the netherworld--Eligor, Grand Duke of Hell. He already hates me, and heíd like nothing better than to get his hands on me and rip my immortal soul right out of my borrowed but oh-so-mortal body.
But wait, it gets better! Not only do I have to sneak into Hell, make my way across thousands of miles of terror and suffering to reach Pandemonium, capital of the fiery depths, but then I have to steal Caz right out from under Eligorís burning eyes and smuggle her out again, past demon soldiers, hellhounds, and all the murderous creatures imprisoned there for eternity. And even if I somehow manage to escape Hell, Iím also being stalked by an undead psychopath named Smyler whoís been following me for weeks. Oh, and did I mention that he canít be killed?
So if I somehow survive Hell, elude the Grand Duke and all his hideous minions and make it back to the real world, Iíll still be the most hunted soul in Creation. But at least Iíll have Caz. Gotta have something to look forward to, right?
So just pour me that damn drink, will you? Iíve got somewhere to go.
