Jezebel also known as Jesse used to be a succubus who stole people’s souls, now she is an exotic dancer who just makes them lust after her for fun. However, someone is upping the stakes and now the game is not so fun anymore.

Paul Hamilton is her white knight, always coming to her rescue, but the denizens of hell are willing to make him a pawn to get Jesse to do what they want.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Jesse is still dancing and still with Paul, and Lillith, the Queen of Hell still hates her. However, with its new King, Hell is no longer playing by the old rules and souls are being harvested by any means necessary. With Megaera missing, Jesse has nobody to turn to, not even her old playmate, Daun, the incubus. He keeps trying to tempt her to come back to her old job, but he seems to have a hidden agenda as well. When an angel comes to her aid in learning how to be a seducer, she thinks maybe she can use it to her own advantage, but it could prove to be just the chance that Hell is looking for to take everything that matters away from Jesse so she will do exactly what they want.

The Road to Hell is the second in the series featuring Jezebel, the former succubus. While slightly darker than the first, it still gives a fiendishly funny look at the world through a demon’s eyes. Ms Kessler makes her view on everything from sex to laundry is hilarious and refreshingly unfettered by the morals that bind humans. The world and the creatures of Hell are mind-bogglingly varied, vivid and well written, but the politics of who was and was not king did confuse me. However, the end more than satisfied me as it will any Jezebel fan. I look forward to the next in the Hell series and anything else by this author with great anticipation.
