Jesse Harris, former
soul-stealing succubus, current exotic dancer; living with
her cop-boyfriend Paul, who does not suspect her former
‘life’, just wants to live and enjoy her life. Admittedly,
she would like to have a clean slate with Paul, but how do
you tell the one you are with that you used to have sex with
men, then steal their souls? And you liked it. You just
could not take the workplace anymore.
Now Jesse’s former co-worker, the
incubus Daunuan, keeps showing up in her life. Pushing all
the buttons he knows so well. He has brought some other of
her former ‘friends’ with him and they just won’t leave her
or Paul alone. In fact, they want to have a soul-stealing
(Paul’s soul-, that is) good time.
The Road to Hell is a hell of a good time. Ms.
Kessler has written a strong character in Jesse. Jesse knows
who she is, where she wants to go and what she is willing to
do to get there. Additionally, the reader is drawn into the
interplay between all the diverse personalities. The
descriptions of Hell and where Hell is headed are perfect.
The reader is left satisfied and yet wanting more.
