Hell on Earth by Dafydd ab Hugh

Doom Series

a review by D. L. Denham, in the genre(s) Science Fiction. Book published by Pocket in August 1995

Continuing where Knee-Deep in the Dead stops, we find our two favorite demon-slaying, zombie-‘sploding action heroes faced with the reality that Earth has been invaded. The story that unfolds on planet Earth is one that could never be guessed and packs a particular charm that I have never seen in a SciFi/Horror story.

As our protagonists travel Salt Lake City—there are fascinating reasons as to why it has survived the apocalypse—with two new members, one a wayward Mormon, Albert, and the other a fourteen-year-old hacker, Jill. Make sure your seat beat is fastened for the highway madness, eerily crafted train ride, and worst of all, a demon control Los Angeles!

Much of what I wrote in the review for Knee-Deep in the Dead can be applied to this novel as well. Yet, we are given much more character complexity as Arlene struggles with her atheism in a time when demons (or aliens) are reality. And Fly, he swears off love until the world is no longer at an end, but sometimes the heart gets in the way of the head.

Hell on Earth is a great sequel to a very addictive series.
