To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was another good story in this series! I can't get enough of Ethan's snark and his need to do whatever he can to help others. The story had quite the change for one character, and I can't wait to see what's next for Ethan and the rest of the gang.

In this, the 5th book of the Ethan Drake series, Ethan is extorted into going to Hell to steal some of Lucifer’s power. What could possibly go wrong? Don’t ask. Hell turns out to be just as barbaric and evil as you might imagine, but it is also a good deal more disgusting. Like all the other books in this series, the author will take you on a fast-paced, action-packed, never-a-dull-moment epic adventure replete with unforgettable characters facing seemingly insurmountable odds but never losing their sense of humor as they face each challenge confronting them. There are some major developments in the character’s lives that may change things forever but we will have to wait to see what the author has planned for them. I am already anticipating the next adventure….a war is coming….Ethan and his companions have been to Hell and back but can they survive what is yet to come? Awesome series.
I was provided with an advance copy of this book by the author and I am voluntarily offering my honest and unbiased review.
Drake is back in the fifth book of the Ethan Drake series. Nothing seems to go right for poor Drake. He’s been kidnapped at the beginning of this one/end of the last one, and he is tasked with siphoning energy off Lucifer himself to save his daughter’s soul. This book was a wild ride, and I enjoyed getting to know Drake’s friend Pike. Drake’s sojourn through Hell was action-packed and fun. Something happens to Hannah in this one which was a very interesting development, and I’m not sure I’m going to enjoy the fallout (no spoilers!). LOL! As always, this was a fun, adventure-filled book, and if you enjoyed the ones before, you’ll love this one. Recommend. I was provided a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

And that's what Ethan must do in book 5 of the series as he is back under the thumb of Knightsbridge and tasked with retrieving some of the Morningstar's energy if he wants to save his daughter's soul. I enjoyed the early part of the story while Ethan was with Blackstar, and his interactions with Pike, but felt things became more of a slog, no pun intended, during the actual journey through Hell, maybe because I've just read too many descriptions of the endless areas and types of torment in other UF novels. Some interesting developments towards the end point the way to what could be happening in future installments.

So a Hellicorn, a Mercenary, an Ex Fallen Angel and Ethan Drake go to hell on a quest that just might save his daughters immortal soul and the lives of his loved ones. I do enjoy this series by N.P. Martin this starts a bit slow and might have just one too many hellacious puns but soon you will find the normal action packed stride. I was happy to find plenty of Haedamus smack talking but dropped I dropped a star for the oh so convenient Mary Sue scenario. However these stories are great and I will be back every time for the next one. If you are an Urban Fantasy with a humorous horror slant fan then I would checkout this series.

Ethan is forced to go to Hell along with his friends and try to come back in one piece! Action, adventure, pitfalls, humor, betrayal, twists, and love are showcased in this remarkable storyline. You simply must read this book! I loved it. I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.
This is one hell of a storywriter, these books are brilliant. I cannot get enough of Ethan and his exploits. This one is particularly hellish in every way. Roll on book five, I cannot wait. Highly recommended.
