It was a bit slow to start but it did pick up the more i read,and i found that i couldn't wait for the next episode in hell for Charlie to undertake in order to get his niece back from a demon.Lucifer was different to how i expected of him being in charge of hell,i would like to here more about him.Charlie never wavered from his intentions of getting his niece free at all costs even to himself.It def was a page turner for me and loved that Charlie got to find love down in hell as well as make some demon friends.
It wasn't my kind of horror that i like to read but this book did keep me turning the pages and i loved the story.Cant wait for more from Nic Parker..
I was apprehensive because I thought this was going to be really scary and I was loving the thought, however it didn't scare me at all. What it did though was pull me right in the story and I bloody loved it.
When Charlie Ward's beloved niece is kidnapped by an atrocious demon, he has to find the secret gateway into the one place every human wants to stay away from: Hell!
Armed only with courage and determination Charlie has to survive in a forbidding place filled with despair and anguish. He must face challenges no mortal should ever have to undergo that threaten to destroy his very soul.
I loved the storyline so much that the fact that it didn't scare me didn't detract from the story at all. The attitude and the chemistry between the characters were awesome and once I started I couldn't put it down.
Lucifer was depicted in such a different light, I loved that he wasn't just the big bad evil of the underworld. If the Devil himself is a Fallen Angel he had to have some compassion right. Can I also say that I absolutely loved Max's character too, her little wisecracks made me howl. Her and Charlie's banter back and forth was comedic.
This book gave me so much enjoyment. I will most definitely be watching out for more from this author in the future.
Definitely 5 fantastic stars!!!

5 out of 5 stars
The story Descent to Hell: How far would you go to rescue a loved one? By Nic Parker is a horror book. This is an amazing story and one I highly recommend to anyone who loves the horror genre. Yes, the story is scary and dark, however, it also has a human touch to it. It is all about how far the main character Charlie is willing to go in order to find and bring his niece, Suzie, home. Charlie’s character is one that you can easily identify with and will be rooting for him and his mission the entire way. While Charlie, at the beginning, may not seem the type of person who can survive a trip to Hell, you quickly learn that everyone seems to underestimate him. He would be the type of person I would want to rescue me. Along the way, Charlie meets several souls that help him in his quest. There is another side to the story as well. It has to do with Charlie’s sister, Pam. She is Suzie’s mother. There is an investigation into Suzie’s disappearance and the detective is bound and determined to solve it.
Once I started reading this book I found that I couldn’t stop. The underworld and the details in which it and the different characters that you meet there are so vivid that your imagination will go into overload. Every page that you turn in this story leads to another revelation. I found the ending came all too quickly. This is the first book I have read by this author and I can say that it will not be the last. I received a copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.
Descent to Hell has two main settings: London and ….the depths of Hell!
As a reader, we are forced (willingly of course…ahem…) to believe the unbelievable as we face fear, anger, pain, depravity, the knowledge that no one can be trusted but having to take a leap of faith, the unknown, love and a quest to find a missing child.
My interest was piqued right at the start – from the 666 steps to the Gateway to Hell through to the very last page where truth is discovered. A missing child, a suspicious uncle…sprinkled with a dark and dry dash of humour – what is not to like! What I loved about this book was the fact that it was not pure horror. The horror element is strong, but it had a crime fiction feel to it that made it a superb read for me. Don’t get me wrong, there were some pure evil cringe moments, but also some (say with a whisper) *sexy stuff*, a bit of romance and a cracking crime/mystery to solve that just made this one of those books I devoured in hours rather than days/weeks.
Charles (Charlie) Ward is the main character and an absolute corker of a guy! He is witty, determined, and courageous as he faces his fears to find his niece, Susie. I worried that he may be a little dull, but holy cow, was I wrong! His character developed through each chapter and the reader joins him on his journey, rooting for his success. It was a turbulent and scary but thrilling excursion where Charlie’s personality may just have saved him from being killed instantly. Such a great character!
DI James Clarke really caught my eye too! He is a haunted soul by an experience from his childhood and he is determined to find Susie- even though all fingers point at poor, old Charlie! John Black is another mysterious character- can we trust him? Should we trust him? What part does he play in the case of this missing child and why does he offer Charlie an opportunity that could ultimately lead to his death? I pictured that scary fellow from Poltergeist when Mr Black was introduced…wonder if anyone else did? Turns out, John Black was a bit younger than I imagined…who knew?!
Max really stole the show for me – though Lucifer (who I will mention next) was not far behind her! Max is an inhabitant *coughs* of hell but boy did she rock! Sassy, strong, sexy, determined – A real cracker of a lady! Although she came across as very hard, cold on the outside, she actually had an endearing vulnerbility that really made me favour her. She oozed class in a raunchy sort of way, if that makes sense – and had it not been for the “lives in hell” part- I’d certainly want to hang out with her! #MyKindOfWeirdo
Last but certainly not least there is Lucifer – is it wrong that I fell in love with the devil himself? Seriously! This character will get under your skin and have you drooling, ladies! Power, strength, courage, a fantastic sense of humour and oh, so sexy- *fans self* – I absolutely adored his story and I can’t say anymore without giving away the best parts of this book…so I will zip my lip and let you find out for yourself what I mean.
So what can I say? Would I recommend this book- Hell Yeah I would! I loved the gothic noir feel. The storyline was unique, gripping and the humour had me belly-laughing (and maybe snorting) throughout. This is definitely going into my #TopReadsof2017 pile and I am extremely excited to see what the next in the series has in store!
