Three things are about to join a crypt in Hell with a house on Earth... Nuns molested and drained of blood. A virginal student seduced by the perverse and taunted by things worse than ghosts. And six Angels, imprisoned in Hell and made pregnant by God knows what...


When Venetia Barlow begins work at St. John's Prior House, she expects a quiet summer of drudgery and boredom. But soon she's haunted by lurid desires and visions of a city full of monsters...and the monsters know her name. Is the house really a place of meditation and worship, or is it a temple of abomination and the most evil secrets? Venetia will only find out, when the voice of a long-dead priest comes into her head and gives her a an unspeakable message from the howling, blood-drenched streets of Hell...

Venetia Barlow, a pious young woman, who is thinking about becoming a nun, is working the summer for extra credit to fix up St John¿s Prior House. After her arrival she learns that the builder of the house was an approved Vatican architect who was a closet Satanist. There are hidden names and message throughout the house as well an involution in the catacombs. She also finds out that two months ago two virgin nuns were murdered here. Unknown to Venetia a Pith leading to hell is in the catacombs of St John¿s Prior House --- In Hell, High Lord Boniface, an anti-pope from the Middle Ages and one of Lucifer¿s most devoted servants, has a Pith the atrium of his fortress. For a hundred years he has tortured and raped captured angels who the demons made pregnant. The years of pain caused them to lose their purity making them ripe for Lucifer¿s purpose. Father Alex and Ruth, two Human Dead, have a mission that will enable him to ascend to heaven and her to purgatory in a thousand years if they are successful. Their assignment involves preventing Venetia from being used as a weapon that will impact life on earth. --- Readers will be able to visualize the different areas of Hell thanks to Edward Lee¿s very graphic and colorful descriptions. Venetia is ignorant of the tug of war role between heaven and hell they want her to play, but she trusts her own instincts to do the right thing for God. At first when she hears Father Alexander¿s voice, she thinks she is going crazy but she perseveres with her beliefs and tries to convince herself that it was all a dream. This is a fantastic horror novel that readers will place on their keeper shelf. --- Harriet Klausner

I feel like Oliver asking for "more please!" But, I have enjoyed and been disturbed by every Edward Lee title that I read, in a goid way. Please, make the other volumes available for Nook. Thank you! It is mildly disappointing to start at the third book in a series. House Infernal is a good book. It probably would habe been a lot better if I had read the previous two books. But, good nonetheless.

All Venetia Barlow wanted to do in her summer break was to earn a couple of extra credits by helping to restore St. John's Prior House. But then she starts hearing voices... from Hell, and slowly she discovers the many secrets the Prior House has hidden so well over the years.A terrific novel which combines a lot of with well-thought-out descriptions (Mephistopolis, the city in Hell with it's different districts is a very fine example) and a suspenseful storyline with steadily mounting tension until the story concludes in a brilliant finale, but be warned, on the way you'll encounter a couple of unexpected developments. I finished the second half of the book in one sitting, it was way too gripping to put down.

Sick, grotesque, profoundly religious and strangely brilliant. The man can really write.

Edward Lee paints a very clever portrait of Hell and it's denizens as they attempt to use Earthly vessels for their own diabolical needs. The city itself, is richly detailed with dark and twisted character and places, in a manner akin to the deviant tales of Clive Barker. The characters are varied although somewhat lacking in depth, however the book has strong direction and the character development is clearly second place to the plot. The story itself is interesting enough, although there is a lack of urgency in the writing style and the lack of empathy with the characters derives from the impact the novel could have created. Overall House Infernal is a simple read, with some great creative sparks, however the style of writing means it's not a real page turner.
