-Miranda, a sorceress
-Ariel, "noir" private eye/cynic
-Prospero, not present-disappeared and stolen away to Hell
-Miranda's brothers, sprites, magic creatures and demons.

Miranda finally gathers all her siblings together and through them learns of some unsettling and all-too-true aspects of her past including the truth about Ferdinand and Caliban. Parts of the story are clouded with mythical artifacts and the nuance of the Prospero Family's past is a bit confusing, but reflects the cloud of doubt that surrounds Miranda as she unravels the mysterious history her father and several immortals have woven. Just when the pieces start falling into place, Miranda's hopes come crashing down in a violent fury. A turn of faith leads Miranda and her family into hell to rescue the dread magician Prospero, but who knows how they will get him back out.

I was hoping this would wrap up into a nice enough conclusion that I could put it to rest until the next book comes out, but what started to be a nice ending then spun into a cliff-hanger and stopped.

Crowinator Actually, Prospero in Hell is the second book of this series. The first book is called Prospero Lost. Just thought I'd let you know in case you missed the first one. It was really good.
