Book Review: Hellfire & Damnation III

Hellfire & Damnation III. Connie Corcoran Wilson. Amazon Digital Services, Inc., Trade Paperback and Kindle, 131 pages.

Reviewed by Jessica Cage.

Hellfire & Damnation III is a collection of short stories that take the reader through nine scenarios reflecting the nine circles of hell. Each story is set in a different time and place with different characters and backgrounds. These stories offer more than just entertainment; they offer a glimpse into the human psyche. In just a few pages, you come closer to understanding what drives people to do the things that will ultimately lead to their demise. Each stage of hell is represented: Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Avarice (one of my favorites), Wrath, the Violent, the Fraudulent, and, finally, Treachery. Each one is represented well in stories that play out like short films. There are only a few points where I feel the story could go further or delve a little deeper, but with the storytelling style that Connie has, it would have gone against the grain. All in all, I think this is a quick read that you will enjoy and will leave you thinking about the choices we make in our lives.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys thrills and maybe a few moments that will leave your skin crawling.
