A debut novel about a guy who works in Hell (literally) and is on the cusp of a big promotion if only he can get one more member of the wealthy Harrison family to sell their soul Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell.
Lux’s unique iteration of hell is consistently engaging, grounded in relatable discomforts yet spiked with surrealist imagery, but readers will also be enthralled with the sheer humanity displayed on each page. No character comes off as mostly good or evil; they’re all just products of their natures and upbringings. With surgical precision, Sign Here captures the difficulties of morality in a complicated modern world.
The two stories intertwine, building suspense along the way. While the concept of Hell as an office building has been done, Lux’s take is fresh and complex, with deep character development and a plot that will keep readers guessing.
In Peyote and Calamity’s chaotic, petty Hell, the byzantine power plays can be a little hard to follow, but usually with funny results whenever a scheme comes to a head. Primarily a dark comedy, gore and sexual content are over-the-top when they come up ... A light entry in the collection for the reader who misses when Christopher Moore wrote about vampires.
