Hell On Earth

When the Chthonians brought the primal gods to a truce at the end of their great war, part of the pact they forged was that the worst of the evil the gods had unleashed against each other and mankind would be forever banished.

But forever is a long time. And nothing can contain those determined to find a way back.

To catch evil, it takes evil . . .

While Thorn is able to contain the demons unleashed on the ground, the ones who prey on the innocent sailors and sea faring travelers are beyond his reach.

For the sake of humanity, he makes a shaky alliance with an old foe, Marcelina. In the form of the ship they sail upon, she assembles a team under the command of Captain Devlyn Nathaniel Bane, one of the most notorious and bloodthirsty pirates to ever sail the high seas.

Damned and murdered by his own, Bane is out for revenge. With his own secret agenda, he agrees to take charge of the motley crew of pirates and brigands, and to protect the seas from the preternatural terrors that seek to devour every unwary soul they can take.

Theirs is a sacred and deadly task, as they are hunted by their prey and human authorities alike. If they fail, the world will fall to the ancient gods of chaos, and anarchy will reign. Most of all, the Southern gate, where the greatest, most powerful darkness is imprisoned, will be opened and there will be no stopping it.

It’s yo ho ho and a bottle of high seas stakes where the souls of all humanity are the ultimate prize and bargaining chip.

"Kenyon (Born of Legend) puts the lie to the old adage “Dead men tell no tales” in this jam-packed, appealing first book of her Deadman’s Cross historical fantasy series...this piratical tale is filled with swashbuckling, death, glory." ―Publishers Weekly on Deamen Walking

“Kenyon’s writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative.” ―Boston Globe

“Arguably the most in-demand and prolific authors in America these days.” ―Publishers Weekly

“[An] engaging read.” ―Entertainment Weekly

Not sure where to start on this one. I have mixed feelings about it. While I really liked it overall, I was left feeling a bit confused and slightly bummed. But that was for one aspect of the story. The story as a whole was wonderfully written and I really liked the fantasy mixed with the paranormal. With sexy undead pirates and hot scenes, this was definitely a great read.

This book opens up with the scene of a pirate ship going down and pirates escaping the wreckage while the captain goes down with his ship, like most great pirates do. Then it opens to chapter 1 where a young woman is seeking the help of the notorious pirate, Devyl Bane, under the guise of a young man. And while you are left thinking this book is going to be about her, Cameron Jack, and the pirate Devyl, you are thrown off course.

There is a lot of info dumping in here where you get a lot of back story and learn about Devyl's past and that of his ship's protector and his "life mate", Mara. And soon, if you forgot what the story was about by the dust jacket, you start realizing this is a book about Devyl and Mara, and that the girl at the beginning of the book, Cameron, is hardly in it, except that she seems to be a Seraph that the "bad guys" are searching for to open up the gates of hell.

With action, adventure, romance and hot scenes, this is definitely one to pick up and start reading.
