Book Description

Hellboy, a bloodred, cloven-hoofed demon raised by the United States government, is a top field agent for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. He questions the unknown -- then beats it into submission.

Religious artifacts from every faith are disappearing without a trace. The identity of the perpetrator is a complete mystery until Hellboy and Liz Sherman -- acting on an unlikely tip from a ghost -- foil a museum heist attempted by crude, robotic constructs inhabited by human spirits.

One of these freed human spirits offers to help Hellboy track down those who imprisoned him: a fanatical order of psychics obsessed with creating a new messiah, one that will bring about a new stage of evolution for mankind -- whether mankind is willing or not. Now only Hellboy and his colleagues stand between a vulnerable humanity and an evil, vengeful god....

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Reader 4 Aug. 2007
By Blue Tyson - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sniegoski has got this down, I think.

"It was a near perfect day up till now. But zombie cyborgs...Hellboy sighed. "I'm not sure I deserve so much fun."

This novel has the right combination of humor, horror and pathos for Hellboy, as a group of spirit-mediums attempt to incorporate and raise a god they worship.

All the crazy weird crap is there, too, along with Director Manning's Uncle Steve's ghost, undertakers, storage facilities for excess paranormal artifacts, and other oddities.

His time working on BPRD comics certainly seems to have assisted the writing for this book.

It appears this a series that it will continue to be worth getting.

If you like the Hellboy stuff,you'd probably enjoy this book.Follows the Hellboy series nicely and is a pretty good read on it's own.

2.0 out of 5 stars dont waste your time 24 Feb. 2011
By Katie Irvin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
the concept is cliched in a bad way and the writimg falls horribly, horribly short of remotey good. reads like something a student would write in highschool; all the characters have seemingly the same voice and personality, (that of the writers, im assuming) and such pesonality is shallow and somwhat blase. i have absolutely no interest in discovering whats happening since the evil dudes plot is revealed in the first few chapters, and the rest of the book is merely a set up for gregarious, bad one liners that all characters deliver equally and without indication that they 're even remotely different from each other. i made the mistake of reading 'on earth as it is in hell' before this and it set the bar high, and set me up for massive dissapointment when i moved on to this book.

It started out slow developing the characters, but then built to a climax and ended really well.
