Call from Hell by T.W. Kirchner
Posted by brriske
Racer, Arloe, and Locke are back in this thrilling follow-up to Town from Hell. The trio may have left Winthrop far behind, but the demons aren’t about to set them free. With demon blood still ruling Racer’s emotions, only time will tell if he can adapt after learning Arloe’s secret. As the couple try to return to their normal lives, they vow not to keep secrets from each other again. However, Racer hasn’t come clean on everything, and what he’s holding back will affect Arloe in a huge way when the demon of lust comes to call.
Dealing with demons comes at a stiff price. Racer must face his deepest fears, Locke’s life is on the line, and Arloe fights an internal battle of good vs. evil. In the midst of being deceived and double-crossed, Racer swears to free them before the hell fire takes them down.
This book is the second in the Dagger & Brimstone series and ends with everything still up in the air. Racer, Arloe and Locke have escaped the city from Hell and now find they owe a demon a favor. The demon parades around in the human world as a high school athletic coach, which is hysterical if you’ve ever played any kind of sport in high school. I swear some of my coaches were evil and the proof is in this book!
>Racer, Arloe and Locke have to seduce 100 souls in order to fulfill their contract with the demon. They just turn on the tv and zoom into their next scene. What a way to make reality tv even more real. You can feel the pain of Arloe and Racer as they have to watch the other seduce strangers. There is a whole mystery as to who is setting all this bad luck in motion and how Arloe and Racer’s relationship will survive.
>The descriptions are just as gory as in the first book, but a few whimsical descriptions have been added to even things out a bit. The three friends are imprisoned in an enchanted apartment until they collect their souls. Anything they write on a particular whiteboard appears before them. The descriptions of the items they ask for are both humorous and interesting.
>During the whole mystery, Racer, Arloe and Locke have mini vignettes with a lot of danger, violence, and sex. These small scenes really keep the story moving along. I am a reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving this book 5 hearts.
