Blurb: Despite a major setback, Lucifer has no time to feel sorry for himself. Running Hell is a monumental task, even though he’s taken steps to modernize it with technology like closed-circuit cameras and security systems.
As he struggles with his infernal issues, an unannounced visitor threatens to break his black heart. Lucifer hasn’t seen Uriel since his Fall, but he remembers how much he loved Uriel and how betrayed he felt when Uriel didn’t stand with him during the War.
Uriel has been sent to inspect the changes Lucifer has made and report back to Heaven. Lucifer has no choice but to give Uriel a guided tour of the Nine Circles, and all the feelings come rushing back.
Uriel hasn’t forgotten Lucifer either, and they pick up where they left off—with enough sizzle to rival the hottest of hell’s fires. But their reunion will be short-lived, unless Uriel relinquishes his halo—which Lucifer is unwilling to let him do.

Review: The first thing I am going to say is this cover rocked. Kiernan is one author who can put together a book that not only draws you in but just keeps you there. Also give you a short story that has quite a bit of meat to it. Usually when I grab a short story, well they fall short. Not enough substance to them to truly enjoy but this author gives you a hell of a good story with such few words.
Lucifer went against god and was sent to run hell. His only pain was the fact that the man he loved went against him in the end. Now here was Uriel striding through hell to have a chat. It would seem someone is up to something, but if you want to know more read the story, you won’t be disappointed.
I absolutely had a blast reading this and look forward to reading many more stories by this author. I would definitely say it is a good read. Plus you will laugh your ass off also.
