Fans of the IN HELL series have said that the latest release, ROGUES IN HELL, is delightful. Yet what is the premise behind it? Quite simply, the reader follows historical figures surmised to have been sentenced to Hell for their heinous crimes. The stories either follow the faction wars that are happening in Hell, people trying to escape Hell, or other happenings going on. The themes for each anthology is in the title – LAWYERS IN HELL and ROGUES IN HELL being self descriptive.

So what did H David Blalock write about?

As mentioned, there are different factions in Hell who often war between themselves, not to mention those inside the factions plotting to get out. H David Blalock chose to explore the idea of the two Egyptian magicians who faced off with Moses and their scheme to escape hell – by leaving the Egyptian Hell and breaking into the Chinese Hell to get a Key from the Demon Guard there and using it to get out. Assigned to stop them is a Chinese General, but can he succeed?

Sound interesting? If that is not to your liking, there are other stories that are mentioned in several favorable reviews that might be more your taste.
