About a year ago I won a copy of Angel Manor (Lucifer Falls Book 1), a wickedly enjoyable ghost story. (Check out my review here http://frankmichaelserrington.blogspot.com/2014/12/angel-manor-lucifer-falls-boo...) Since that time I've been Facebook friends with the author, Chantal Noordeloos, and have frequently found her posts to be charming, witty, enlightening, and entertaining. Recently, her publisher sent me a copy of a new novella she has coming out called, Even Hell Has Standards: Wrath. Since this is the second in a series, I went out and bought a copy of the first book, Even Hell Has Standards: Pride.

The story is about serial killer, Adolf Zacherny, who dies in a shoot-out with authorities and wakes up, naked, in Hell. This was his end-game. With all the torment and suffering he caused in life he really believes he'll have similar role in Hell. Actually, things don't work out as planned.

Set any preconceived notions you may have of Hell aside and allow the author to paint the landscape for you. I found Chantal Noodeloos world-building to be quite plausible, even if it's not the fire and brimstone many of us are accustomed to.

I found this original horror story to be both entertaining and worthy of a sequel. As a result, I'm looking forward to returning to Hell when I read Even Hell Has Standards: Wrath in the near future.

Even Hell Has Standards: Pride is available from Tip My Hat Publishing as an e-book.

A quick read, one I can easily recommend .

Chantal Noordeloos lives in the Netherlands, where she spends her time with her wacky, supportive husband, and outrageously cunning daughter, who is growing up to be a supervillain.

There are many genres that Chantal likes to explore in her writing. Currently Sci-fi Steampunk is one of her favourites, but her 'go to' genre will always be horror. "It helps being scared of everything; that gives me plenty of inspiration," she says. ( )

Even Hell Has Standards: Pride by Chantal Noordeloos is a great story. Adolf Zakerny is one evil man. He has lived his life as a tribute to hell. He is a serial killer who has killed and tortured hundreds of people and he believes that one day he will go to Hell and become a demon because he was so good at making people suffer.

Finally one day he is gunned down by police, his only regret is that he didn’t make it to 1,000 murders. As he arrives in Hell he finds that things aren’t what he thought they would be. He leaves one body and enters a new one which isn’t as good as the one he had. Also there is no fire and brimstone, just darkness and people waiting in long lines for their punishment. Adolf doesn’t get the hero’s welcome he thought he was going to get, he’s just another soul waiting to learn his fate in Hell. Adolf doesn’t think of himself as the average soul and demands to see Lucifer. Adolf is determined to make a name for himself as one of the greatest demons in Hell but Lucifer is not the person Adolf thinks he is and the devil has other plans for his soul.

I’ve read various works by Chantal Noordeloos, she is a great writer and this is another story by her that I couldn’t put down. This story works as a psychological horror story, a disturbing shockfest and a philosophical tale on how to live life. In some horror stories that I’ve read, the author tries hard to shock and terrify the reader but Chantal doesn’t have to try to shock you. The horror in her stories is organic. Chantal’s writing is scary without her even trying to be scary.

It’s hard to talk about my favorite parts of this book without giving to much of the story away but one part I did like was when Adolf gets to take a tour of Hell. In one of the rooms he sees Tantalus. Tantalus is a Greek mythological figure who is being punished for feeding his child to the gods. When Adolf sees him he tries to prove himself to Lucifer by making Tantalus suffer more. This ends up being an impossible task and not for the reason you might think.

Another thing I liked about this book was how complex of a character Lucifer was. Lucifer also has a servant who is hardly in the story but comes across as being a sympathetic character when you realize who he was talking about when Adolf sees him for the first time. I also love the way he looks at Adolf as he leaves Lucifer’s chamber. At this point I would love to talk about the main theme that Chantal brings up in this story but I can’t without ruining this novella. So I’m just going to say that Even Hell Has Standards: Pride is only 99 cents and you should really go buy a copy. ( )
