5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic debut novel, 18 Feb. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hell's Belles (Paperback)
For over 4000 years Jezebel has thoroughly enjoyed her role as a Succubus; after all seducing men, sucking out their souls and escorting them to Hell was what she was created for and she's pretty good at her job. Yet since King Lucifer made His Announcement to all denizens of Hell Jezebel (aka Jesse) has a sizeable bounty on her head and plenty of demons happy to collect. Unable to escape evil's radar, she does the only thing possible and convinces a human witch to turn her into a soulless mortal.

Now wearing a human body and a shield against evil, Jezebel decides to hide herself in New York City, supporting herself as an exotic dancer. Working for Belles strip club is easy money, her human body positively reeking of sex appeal despite her renounced Succubus status; however even a human body and a powerful charm is not enough to keep Jezebel hidden form the legions of Hell.

I cannot believe that "Hell's Belles" is a debut novel; from the first page Ms Kessler draws the reader into a wonderfully dark world in which the deadly sins are personified (what else would Jezebel be but a creature of Lust), with quotas to be met and souls to be properly judged for punishment. JK has created a wonderful character in Jezebel; a morally corrupt ex-demon you can't help but like (try figure?). Even without a soul, Jezebel discovers that it is possible to fall in love within her human body; however when said paramour refuses her advances due to her emotional state; she finds herself seriously tempted to whip of her protective ward and embrace her old powers; all in the name of revenge.

I now eagerly await this book's sequel; "The Road to Hell" due for pub. Nov 07 and have nothing left to add but buy "Hell's Belles" and enjoy!
