When the Devil abdicates the throne of Hell the netherworld is thrown into disarray.
It's not surprising that many of the damned try to use the chaos to try and escape the smoldering cauldrons of damnation, but Pete's best friend is a demon, so he succeeds where many others fail. Once back on Earth he wants nothing more than go track down his old friends, family and lovers and resume his old life.
Unfortunately for him, the conflict below is boiling over and it's only a matter of time before Pete and his best friend Dante get pulled back into the infernal war. The Devil's chosen successor isn't popular with the legions of Hell. The Angel of Death has gone mad. Baba Yaga is planning something, though nobody is completely certain what she's planning.
On their quest to restore order to the discord of hell they meet a variety of angels, demons, alchemists, eldritch abominations and a variety of figures from European mythology. They're dragged along by strange new age cults, bands that have been infected with clown, and other strange pop culture detritus.
Can Dante and Pete calm the looming conflict?
Or will all Hell break loose?
