Despite a major setback, Lucifer has no time to feel sorry for himself. Running Hell is a monumental task, even though he’s taken steps to modernize it with technology like closed-circuit cameras and security systems.
As he struggles with his infernal issues, an unannounced visitor threatens to break his black heart. Lucifer hasn’t seen Uriel since his Fall, but he remembers how much he loved Uriel and how betrayed he felt when Uriel didn’t stand with him during the War.
Uriel has been sent to inspect the changes Lucifer has made and report back to Heaven. Lucifer has no choice but to give Uriel a guided tour of the Nine Circles, and all the feelings come rushing back.
Uriel hasn’t forgotten Lucifer either, and they pick up where they left off—with enough sizzle to rival the hottest of hell’s fires. But their reunion will be short-lived, unless Uriel relinquishes his halo—which Lucifer is unwilling to let him do.
Quite a nice little story for this time of year. I thought it was a nice take on sin and sinners. Although I never thought I’d feel sorry for Lucifer having too many souls to deal with! Uriel is sent to hell on a fact finding mission but what he finds is so much more. Lucifer takes Uriel on a tour and I loved the way the author describes the circles of hell. Trouble is they can’t deny their love for each other. It’ll be a new kind of torture when they have to part. What has the ‘Boss’ got in store for them after all he knows everything, so why send Uriel down to hell? I liked the humour of this story. It is a nice short read with a bit of Christmas spirit thrown in.
