In New Dis, there is no rest for the dead. Sprouting from the rim of Hell's depths, not even this bohemian city of the afterlife-full of mercantile enterprises, engineering innovations, and political intrigue-is immune to the tragedies filtering down into it as war and endless suffering rage on Earth above.
Hephaestion, general, confidant, and lover of Alexander the Great, has one goal: rescue Alexander from the torment of Hell. Yet far more souls bar his way than he'd ever anticipated, and Hephaestion, with the help of new friends and comrades, will have to use both brains and brawn against some of the underworld's most unsavory opponents.
"Fast-paced, action-packed, and weirdly entertaining... a cannon blast of a start to a series with a highly unique premise." ~ Readers' Favorite Book Reviews, Pikasho Deka (5 STARS)
