About the Book:
Cassie's going on a trip... to Hell.
Goth girl Cassie just can't hack it anymore. Supplanted from her friends, torn from her life in the city's underground, and now this: her sister has committed suicide.
The old Southern antebellum is more than just a house. It's a threshold to the Deadpass, an infernal place where the barrier around lucifer's domain has worn so thin, you can open a door and step straight into Hell.
And that's just what Cassie does. Too bad the door slams shut behind her...
But Hell isn't quite what she expects. No burning sulphur pits, no fire and brimstone. Just as human civilization has evolved over the past 5,000 years, so has Hell.
Hell is now a city, a burgeoning metropolis of systemized evil, atrocity as status quo, and government as the most diabolical design.
The door is open... want to go along for the ride?
