Technically, since I edited A Cold Day in Hell, I'm not sure it's appropriate for me to review it, too. But when I realized it'd been released already, I just couldn't help but share my thoughts. I loved it.

When I started reading this book, I didn't know what to expect. I'd never read a high-concept fantasy before, but Main's sense of humor made this an easy read. When I turned the page, I didn't know what to expect next, since Rial and Tonk managed to get themselves into hilarious disaster afte

A Cold Day in Hell by Denise M. Main is an entertaining story with a cast of angels, demons, and the like. If you are simply looking for some light reading, don't worry; the title is one of the only few religious references that appear. Instead of right and wrong, we are drawn into the grand multi-verse of the of the universe's structure, to follow the demon Azarial as she tries to live her normal life, despite the trouble friends bring to her door.

In her debut novel, A Cold Day In Hell, author Denise Main weaves a wonderful story of intrigue, mystery, drama, and humor. Azarial may not be a very good demon, but she is a perfect main character. I fell in love with her immediately. Azarial is a sculpter. Her mother is a fallen archangel. Her friends are powerful lords from various worlds. And her constant companion, and perfect sidekick, is an imp named Tonk. All of the characters are wonderfully detailed.

The author sculpts an amazing world

Azarial, a poor excuse for a demoness with a kind heart, scattered tendencies, and a love of pastries muddles her way through life in the magical realm, one dimension removed from Earth. The book follows her daily life from a summoning by a human witch, to her job as an artist creating enchanted chess pieces, to having her house invaded by her friends the Nightlords.

Once the Nightlords come into the book, they dominate the rest of the story, becoming front and center importance whether the reade

I enjoyed writing this book, the characters and the various worlds in the Structure. Making Tonk, the imp more street-smart than his boss was a necessity, since Azarial isn't the most savvy of people. She enjoys being a demon, even though she isn't particularly good at it, and since her Mother is a Fallen archangel the other option is much worse. Not only does Azarial hate angels, she has a phobia of wings - feathered wings to be precise. She is a sculptor who specialises in game pieces that are ...more

What an awesome book. It was a story with an orginal concept based on true occult knowledge not found in many fictional books written today. Not all Demons are "bad" Fallen Angels have thier own story to tell as well, but let's talk about this book, which is fictional. Well written and kept me looking to see where the story would go and I usually can say this will happen next, but not in this story. It kept on surprising me and wondering what will happen next. I love the MC and her Imp, Tonks, i ...more
