Carnage...check. Blood and gore...check. Fabulous storyline...check. Witty dialogue...check.
Stark returns in the fifth Sandman Slim book and he's once again on the warpath the save the world. Even though every book is about saving the world it's amazing how the author is able to come up with so many new and unimaginable ways that makes this series so gripping. Stark is in a race to find the Qomrama Om Ya before the Angra use it to obliterate the universe. To do so, Stark and his friends have to enter Kill City, a condemned mall in Santa Monica that houses many dead and undead creatures with unbelievable hazards in search of a crazy ghost that's been guarding the Qomrama Om Ya. Stark once again gets captured and tortured and those scenes are not for anyone with a weak stomach. Stark isn't Stark if he can't escape and he once again squares off to that crazy angel Aelita. He gets to meat another God in the process and its in that part of the book where you go, "oh yeah, that's so obvious", but you get so absorbed with the storyline that there's no time to spend time thinking whodunit or whoisit. I especially like the scene where Samael (the original Lucifer), Stark (the previous Lucifer) and Mr Munnin (a God splinter and the current Lucifer) sit down for drinks. It's so ludicrous but it just fits perfectly in the series.
This is a cracking read, fast paced and a great improvement on the previous two books. I can't wait to read the next one in the series.

THE FIRST PAGE TO LAST SO MANY TWISTS AND TURNS IT MAKES YOUR BRAIN HURT!
THE SANDMAN IS MEAN AND LIKE A DURACELL BATTERY KEEPS ON POWERING ON, BUT ALSO VERY FUNNY.
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE BOUGHT THIS YEAR AND I AM GOING TO SPEND £50/£60 AND BUY ALL THE REST IN ONE GO.
RATHER THAN BUY PIECEMEAL.
AS A FEMALE READER OF THIS GENRE I ESPECIALLY LIKED THAT MOST OF THE SUPPORTING CHARACTERS WERE FEMALE AND JUST AS DEADLY AS SANMAN SLIMM IF NOT MORE AND DID MOST OF THE FIGHTING!!😎

I came to this series late but have them al, have read them all and am looking forward to the next installment. Richard Kadrey has an easy writing style that brings you into the world of Sandman Slim effortlessly, and really you are waiting for him to hit people, shoot things and generally cause mayhem. Brilliant stuff.

The Devil's gladiatorial plaything, then an escapee, he is a killer that you root for from book one.

I won't give anything away about the book, just buy it you will not be disappointed ...

Might just be me but this felt a little like contractual filler. Maybe after five books about Sandman Slim the well is beginning to run a touch dry or just becoming too familiar. After all he's been to Hell and back (several times) in the series. How do you top that? Still worth reading though.

I loved this one. I was getting a bit worried about repetition but this takes the Angr Om Ya story on and has some wonderful scenes. My favourites are the steps in Kill City though the Sub Rosa torturer comes a close second.

Sandman Slim rides again, on a hog that's not road legal outside of hell. The dialogue is sharp with a rumbling wit that throws out one liners like old faithfully on steroids.

Read the books on order, they are well worth the time.

Another fantasy thriller from Kadrey, the scene is set perfectly and characters feel like you know them in person. Here's to Sandman Slim never running out of monsters to kill!
