Did not finish.

An appallingly badly written book complete with purple prose with very odd styling.

It seem to be a retelling of the Matter of Britain but I couldn't stomach it.

Avoid.

It's big (huge, collossal, overwhelmingly large) in time, societies and surroundings. It's complicated, with characters coming and going and coming and going, sometimes in both directions. And it's interesting, in a "how the heck is this all going to hang together?" kind of way. But,as much as the authour tries desparately to hold the whole thing together, in my case he failed to hold onto my interest. The best characters and civilizations come and go, and the boring, underdeveloped, predictable ones keep hanging on page after page. It seems to be trying to be space opera and sermon at the same time, and not pulling either off completely.
It's worth reading, but don't expect too too much.

An interesting book This book is about an angel that is stuck in hell and wants to save a human soul so he will be allowed entry into heaven.
One of the demonic character was really annoying, since it is a snake so it pronounced everything it said a certain way.
This book is like all the other crow novelization books, because the main character isn't resurrected until 100-160 pages into the book, and it t is 237 pages long.
This book is about demons in hell that come to earth to pursue a renegade angel that was in hell and escaped to save a hell bound soul that was currently suffering or in pain in some way and would need his help.
However his is a liar and cannot be trusted.
If you like reading about angels, demons in the human world possessing and tormenting human beings then you will like this book.
I liked some of the phrases used in this book such as "summinaries of darkness" and "vessels of inequity"
I did like this book, but I wish it was more connected to the original graphic novel it gains inspiration from.
All of these Crow novelization books are original stories but don't really relate to the crow much, which is a bit annoying that they are using the name the crow and it is only very loosely connected to James O'Barr's original graphic novel.
