Deeper: A Novel, by Jeff Long was reminiscent of Ted Dekker's Red, Black and White Trilogy. The book is a sequel to Long's book, The Descent, a decade later. I'll grant you, I don't remember all the details of Long's previous book, too many stories under the bridge in the decade past, but it really wasn't necessary to get the gist of the story. Fantastical and violent imagery abound in the novel. At times, I found myself wondering about the mind of the author that can conceive of these ideas. The book ends in a way that would make another sequel possible, which makes me wonder if Long is going to try for a trilogy. Due to the almost religious overtones of the book, and my own comparision of it with Dekker's work, I wonder if there is just some compulsion on the part of authors to make these types of books into a trilogy. Sort of an homage to the Christian Trinity maybe? Then again, maybe I'm over reaching a lot in my analyzing. I guess the sign of a successful book could easily be when the reader finishes it, says to themselves, 'hmm, that was...weird? odd? peculiar?...' And then proceeds to think about it for a while. I'm sort of having trouble moving onto my next book in my stack, and I keep reflecting back on this book while driving, doing mundane day to day chores, etc. I guess the book is a success, disturbing maybe, but a success.

I really enjoyed the first book much more than this. I found myself struggling to finish each chapter. What made the first book so great was all of the action and the horror that followed. To me, the last 100 pages were the best in terms of excitment with the first 300 building up to it. I also hated how the book ended! Is there another novel coming or are we left in the same dreamlike state that plagues the character at the end. All in all, i would only recommend this novel to those that read the first book to see what has happened to our beloved Ike and Ali.

This book is great on its own,but the one before it THE DECENT helps.Really had a great time escaping into the phsical underworld. You''ll never walk at night by yourself the same again.

This book kept me awake for a week...I could hardly sleep thinking about how true to reality this is, not just the "devil as man" idea but the back stories. It was the first book I bought for my nook and I HIGHLY recommend it!

Ten years ago, incredible inner earth labyrinths were discovered. A scientific expedition beneath the trenches of the Pacific Ocean occurred with most of the humans who came to explore Hades killed by the indigent predators who have terrorized the surface dwellers for millennia. The humans believed that they managed to kill the ruler.--------------- One of the humans, linguist Ali von Schade, survived captivity by the Hadals to eventually return to her home on the planet surface with a vow to never go inside the earth again. Instead Dr. von Schade, suffering from the Stockholm syndrome especially after her time with the glamorous Satan, studies anything related to the several diverse Hadal peoples.------------- As a great war seems imminent on the Asian continent, children suddenly begin disappearing and ritual massacres occur. She knows who is responsible. Unable to resist, Ali joins the children rescue effort as all the evidence points towards Hades. Ali knows Satan lives as her affinity to him from her incarnation remains strong she needs to see him as she remains attracted to Satan, yet also wants to kill him.-------------- This exciting sequel to THE DESCENT (not read by this reviewer) is a fast-paced exhilarating gory thriller that never slows down once Ali realizes that the devil in her dreams remains alive inside the earth. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action and more action. Ali is the only multi-dimensional character and much of her flaws come from real demons and not her exploration of the cultures of Hell, but fans of non-stop action will not care as hell comes to earth through subway tunnels and humans go to Hell.----------- Harriet Klausner

It was great. It totally freaked me out. I read around Halloween. Read it and you'll see exactly what I mean. Gotta read the first one though. It's really a deep book. Raises questions about where we come from and how it really all started. The human race I mean.
