Ah, yes: the Sadia question. Well, in typical "Heck-like" fashion, I have some good news and some not-so good news and then some potential good news meaning news that could either be good or bad, considering. Good news: I have written Sadia: The Eighth Circle of Heck and it is awesome. It is, by far, the darkest of the Heck books. Still funny, but definitely digs deeper on all fronts, and—at times—higher. The Not-So Good News: Random House has decided not to publishing the two remaining Circles of Heck books (Sadia and Dupli-City). Ever since the merger with Penguin, the publishers has been cutting corners and even though circles don't have corners, my Circles of Heck series was one of many to be abandoned. I am exploring self-publishing, but my greatest hope (the "some potential good news") is that MGM are developing a Heck movie and, if it goes into production, then I am confident that Random House would want to resume the series. Fingers, toes, hooves and barbed-tails crossed. (less)

Usually the background is something from the plot, with Milton and Marlo looking terrified! I wouldn't want to spoil anything. I do think Sadia will be sort of an angry, bruise-like color or rusty brown, with Dupli-City either being gray or black with white. Usually I will provide an idea to my editor who passes it on to Bob Dob, who has done such an exceptional job with the covers! His characterizations are amazing!(less)

Seventh book and still as amazing as when it started. The book is full of sassy humor and adventure like none other. Also, being a huge fan of Lewis Carroll and Alice in Wonderland and having those connections just made the book that much better to me. There were many forms word play used through out the book and I found myself thinking back to Dr. Seuss because of it. I find myself thinking to bad he wasn't a character in the book. I give the book 5 stars and can't wait for the next one.

My favorite book in the series so far. Basye does a wonderful job of continuing to keep the series fresh, while delivering the expected sharp humor and clever wordplay fans of the Heck books have come to love.

This book was very close to 5 stars. But not quite. The wordplay in the book was a little bit too much, and it seems like the author invented a bunch of plot devices to finish the story. However, the characters are likable and well developed, and the situations that they face seem real enough. Although I'm not sure how you would die if you were already in Heck. All in all, this is one of the only 9-book or longer series that has kept my attention, and it deserves 4 stars.

Mr. Basye certainly has his own way of alienating the reader up until pulling an amazing ending out of his butt at the last second. Mostly this is the laman in me talking, when I just want some fun instead of having to use my brain to follow the story. This series has some wit and ego to follow, so you have to be in the right mood for it.
