In @HELL, Jake Cottrell enters the age old battle of Good against Evil, not fully aware of what he was getting himself into. In this day and age, Evil didn't come knocking the old fashioned way, it came by way of e-mail. Jake was always looking for trouble, he thought he could handle anything. Then he had a racing accident.
After the racing accident things felt different. Suddenly, Jake ran into an old school buddy of his who had made a name for himself. He was a successful doctor, owned a beautiful, if not chilling, mansion and had one of the most beautiful women in town as his fiance.
Of course there's Rachel, there is always a hot woman involved, she is seductive and sensual and very hard to resist, the very temptation that could bring Jake to his knees. Rachel gives him everything he could desire, she just wants one thing from him -- His soul!
At the same time, Micah, an angel sent to keep Jake from turning evil, enters town. He has been banished to the Earth as a punishment, and is destined to stay there until he can find in mankind what God sees in mankind. He can feel Jake's pain and the pain of all the citizens of the town. At first he can't imagine why God would hold these humans in such high regard, but the more he interacts with them, the more he finds he likes them.
Jake seems to think there is no way he can be hurt, that he is invincible, until Evil plays with the people he cares about the most. Will Good win or will Evil win? Does Micah find what God has sent him to find? You will have to read this book to find out if Good always beats Evil.
Nora Weston takes us into a world that could be hidden just below the surface for all of us. She creates characters with pasts and feelings and anger and hate and love, all three dimentional. It is a ride up and down, in sin and good, with demons and angels. Her descriptions are almost tangible.
I would recommend this book. It is a fast flowing story filled with the normal and the paranormal and exciting to the last page. It will make you think twice the next time you answer a strange e-mail.
