When a man of heavenly worth sins in Hell, darkness shall reign upon the earth
A message from the other side – an omen of the impending apocalypse. A message intended for one man, the only man who can prevent Armageddon, saving the soul of every man, woman and child on Earth. That man is Joe Costello.
But, not only is Joe trapped in the underworld, he is also the same man who has the power to unleash the shadows of hell upon the world.
Inspired by Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy, Joe must battle his way through the nine circles of Hell – his escape being the key to salvation. Not only will he face all manner of Hell’s demons, he’ll also face his own.
However, Joe is not alone on his journey, as he is guided through each level of Hell by medium and psychic, Layla Thorne. Shadows of Hell is the epic follow-up to Shadows of the Woods.
Shadows of Hell thunders along at a breakneck pace, not giving the reader chance to draw breath.Lee Mountford, author of The Demonic
Shadows of Hell is the second book in the series by Duncan Thompson, which means my TBR just got bigger. If the first book is anything like this one, I need to read, as soon as I can fit it into my schedule. Wow!!
I’m loving the classic horror style this author has chosen for this book. It fed into my horror loving self, and made me obsessed with this read. Once I started, I couldn’t set this down.
The characters were excellent. Extremely well written and realistic. I loved the sprinkles of dark humor as well. It gave this story and overall atmosphere that was addicting to read.
I have to give this five stars, but Shadows of Hell deserves ten. Highly recommended!

Duncan has spent most of his life in a small market town in West Yorkshire — the same town in which most of his stories are set under the guise of Ravenfield. Duncan has been writing works of fiction since the age of seven. In those early days, his stories often involved himself and his friends being transported to fantasy worlds. However, as a teenager, Duncan fell in love with horror movies and his writing took a whole new direction.
Duncan still lives in West Yorkshire with his partner and their two young children. He also has slight obsession with Spider-Man and the actor Bruce Campbell, as well as having an addiction to vinyl records, coffee and Lego.
