Product Description

Review

'Heaven's Hell' is fun. But dark fun. The women are gorgeous, the characters are larger than life and the dialogue is crisp and genuinely witty. Gray has a good ear for a sharp one-liner and there's no shortage of humour. But Gray's Heavens are a long way from the Elysian Fields. It's more like a chaotic office environment where everyone is overworked, stressed out and undervalued. The deities here succumb to the same temptations as the rest of humanity and are portrayed as having as little control over their existence as the rest of us. The book treads a fine line between comedy and tragedy and Gray's portrayal of the joy and fragility of lesbian relationships is neatly drawn and painfully realistic. --Iona Fiesta, OUTSKIRTS Magazine

Hmm, where do i start?? At 1st, it took a little while to get into (10-15 pages) but then, I simply got hooked and couldn't put it down! I loved the passion, the love, the pain-all depicted so well, I actually felt genuinely sad for the characters!
Despite the length, I didn't get bored and start skimming, as I usually do if I think the writer is waffling-on the contrary, I put aside all my other commitments to make sure I read every single page!! It is beautifully written, and the characters are likable and lovable.
I was a bit thrown by the ending as well, but I can look beyond it, I guess, to see what will happen after! Loved Irrational Numbers by Gray also and really look forward to her next!!

This book turns heaven and hell into an office where most of the gods are lesbians. Its a particularly bitchy place but the bitching is dangerous. A human in heaven is being trained to be an angel of vengence and the gods take a fancy to her that's when the fireworks start.
I thought this was a great idea and there's a lot going on in the story. Its funny, touching and I think quite an original idea. My only gripe is that it had a strange ending but I said the same about the previous book I read by E A Gray. So maybe its just me. This book entertained me and I couldn't ask for more than that.

What if Heaven and Hell were run by women? What if the bureaucratic office we spend our lives trying to get away from were the bread and butter of this afterworld? And what if love caused wars and made life a million times more complicated than what goes on in the world of the living? This is what E.A. Gray conjures in this satyrical look at the relationships of women thrust into the roles of Lucifer (Lucy), God (Elle) and a host of characters taken from Greek mythology.

Dialogue here is witty and fast like the punches these women can throw when pushed into a corner. But there's a lot of sensuality too and yearning for the ultimate love. If you are looking for a perfect read this summer, you have come to the right place!

The story line is a first for me and I loved it! The narration from Cupid was one of my favourite parts, adding humour to the contrasting dramatic chapters. Great story and very enjoyable. The second I've read from this author, and I look forward to the next.

Took a little getting into a first then I couldn't put it down. The characters are great and feel every emotion.
