The first 13 chapters


Satori is not willing to let the reality of Star’s fate deter him from his heroic quest. He would rather battle demons and traverse terrifying other worlds than accept Star’s final decision. It isn’t only Lilith he must face; the police believe he murdered his ex-girlfriend; and vengeful Freya colludes with the Mother of Demons to plot Satori’s downfall. How can Satori reach Star in Lilith’s kingdom while so many forces oppose him on Earth?


Star did not expect a place in Heaven after death, but her Hell is worse than she could have imagined. Satori promised to find her, but she refuses to await rescue. How can she find the strength to survive, let alone escape, when both her lover and her infant son are her torturers?
