Cori has always been a bit on the strange side, but when a gate to Hell—literally—pops up in her backyard, she tumbles down, down, down in to a place filled with beasts waiting to reap her soul for the Devil himself.
Lucky for Cori, she meets Rigel and his gang of misfits who have been trapped for quite a bit. Together, they must formulate a plan to escape, or risk remaining down below for all eternity and burning forevermore.

500 years before Theo met Cassia, Leander met Lyda.
The Netherworld was never meant for the living. It steals a mortal’s sanity piece-by-piece, day-by-day. No one understands that better than the God of Death. But the chance for even a single day of company is a seductive thing and Leander can’t help looking forward to each sacrifice.
When the last mortal country outlaws human sacrifice, Leander’s new bride becomes his last. Though he knows he should let Lyda continue on to her afterlife, the pair grows closer and the God of Death hesitates in the face of eternal solitude. But soon, Leander must decide between being selfish and selfless.
This is one of the best short stories I have read, and I can’t wait to read the spin off novel, Fragile Chaos. Even though it was short, I could connect with Leander and really feel for him as I was inside his head. I wanted to pull him into a great big hug!
