Skylar, the wayward daughter of Stan (better known as Satan thanks to a typo in a first edition), is desperate to escape the ethereal planes of Hell and become a bounty hunter.

Sapphire, God’s forgotten second child, is oblivious of her divine heritage. Archangel Gabriel was to deliver the news on the night of her conception, but wound up bleeding and left for dead behind a seedy strip club.

So instead of delivering God’s latest and overriding commandment of “Don’t be a dick” to the people of Earth, Sapphire gets sucked into Skylar’s quest of hunting down an escaped soul from Hell that’s causing mayhem in Las Vegas.

The Second Coming is wickedly funny urban fantasy crossed with comedic blasphemy. Fair Warning: Laughing along with this book may earn you a spot in Hell.

Those words, forever echoing in my mind as I move through the ages. Following me like a specter through time.
