In a complete turnaround from much of the deep, thoughtful work I’ve been reading comes a B movie in novel form. James Stark, petty magician condemned (alive) to Hell gets out after eleven years, taking some precious Hellion artefacts and returns to the only place worse: Los Angeles. He’s got a score to settle and he’s missed everything from 1989 ’til 2009. A fun, fast read with top-notch worldbuilding let down, unfortunately, by some poor research and edit choices (doesn’t recognise a BlackBerry but sneers at Dot-com millionaires…) Ignore the iffy edits, though, and just go along for the ride.
