The path to temptation is paved with a hellish amount of paperwork.
Soul acquisition is a drag, but if Abaddon doesn’t catch up on his quota, he could be demoted to scooping poop for the Hounds of Hell. With a deadline hanging over him, he heads for the Bible Belt, looking for the perfect combination of sweetness and challenge.
Seth is a blind musician, part of a traveling tent revival. He’s cute, mystically talented, and quotes the Bible at every turn. His soul is pure enough to fill Abaddon’s quota for months to come, and Abaddon is determined to claim it.
The problem? There’s the revival foreman who watches Abaddon’s every move. Then there’s the mystery of Seth’s many unusual talents. Lastly, there’s Abaddon himself. He’s beginning to like Seth a bit too much. Maybe Seth deserves something better than damnation.
But Hell’s agenda isn’t negotiable, and time is running out. If Abaddon doesn’t play his cards right, he could condemn both of them to the worst fate of all—an eternity apart.
Warning: Contains a Bible-quoting twink and an irreverent devil who’ll do anything to avoid going “back to the office”. Also, snakes. Lots and lots of snakes.

This was a very unique read which is sweet and at times really funny. The entire rendition of HELL is an awesome way of showing how dreary, boring and soul sucking HELL can be. There is always huge paperwork, the subway smells, rules against making friends and last but not the least, you cannot laugh at all. So Abaddon pretty much hates it there but hey, once you make a deal with the Devil, you are stuck!!!
What an absolutely fantastic story! It’s a perfect blend of quirky, sweet, humorous and heart wrenching. I laughed, I groaned, I even got the sniffles. I love it when and author can pull all that off in a matter of 120 pages.
