This long awaited book (almost four years since the third in the series Third Transmission) takes you on an action packed and emotional demonic roller coaster from the darkest depths of hell until finally you are able to see a pin prick of murky grey light at the end. And it's awesome!

In this latest book of the Six of Hearts series the action sequences are just as insanely extreme, as in the previous books in the series, but have become a lot more violent. And Six has taken his resourcefulness

Finally! Someone who actually gets the idea of time travel and what would happen to the body!

Great book! However, I was incredibly annoyed that it was eBook only! It has some really good foreshadowing, but it sometimes gives away too much info about what it about to happen (which kind of ruins a story when you're like me and guesses what is about to happen).

I gave it four because, like all the other ASOH books it was amazing but, it was only an eBook and I like my paperbacks :p
