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.
Now I must point out, that just because ‘Rial is a demon, that fact does not make her evil. Such a notion appears to be nothing more than a foolish human lie. And despite Azarial’s general disgust with feathers, angels don’t tend to be in the wrong, or too much against demons either. In fact, the characters most against good here seem to be a human sorcerer and a witch.
If you can enjoy a story without taking certain names or titles too literally, you might find this one to be an enjoyable read. I like such a simple kind of explanation for magical powers. It also lends quite well to quick stereotype supporting characters like a big red devil-demon, or a little crafty sculptor imp. All in all, it leaves you with a fun view of the world.
