Killed in a car accident before its her time to go, Lily learns that the hereafter isnt exactly what she hoped it might be.First, theres AfterLife Enterprises, the company responsible for sorting out the recently dead and sending them on their way to the Kingdom, (aka happily ever after,) or to the Underground City, (not so happily ever after.) Learning that Lilys death was indirectly their fault (her guardian angel, Bill, was MIA during her accident and was one of their employees,) Afterlife Enterprises offers Lily the chance to live again. But, as with most things involving the afterlife, beware the fine print. Most notably, Lily will become a soul retriever, venturing into the bowels of the Underground City to retrieve souls that were mistakenly sent there by Afterlife Enterprises during a Y2K computer glitch.Second, theres angel Bill. As if risking her second life in the Underground City wasnt enough, Lilys guide to the Underground is none other than her incompetent, alcoholic, womanizing guardian angel, Bill, the antithesis of anything wholesome. With only Dantes Inferno and Bill to help her in her quest, Lilys future isnt looking bright.Finally, theres the legendary bladesmith, Tallis Black. As Scottish as his kilts and heavy brogue, Tallis Black is a centuries-old Celt who, for reasons only known to him, offers to train Lily and act as her escort into the depths of the Underground City. Dark, brooding and definitely dangerous, Lily knows she shouldnt trust Tallis, but she also cant deny her attraction to him.Between soul retrieving in hell, dealing with Bill and trying to figure out whats in it for Tallis, Lily wonders if maybe she wouldve just been better off dead.The Underground City:Lilys newest mission will see her traveling to the sewer aqueduct of the Underground City and later, the prison. But, luckily for Lily, shes got the hunky yet antisocial bladesmith, Tallis Black, by her side. And quite possibly unluckily for her, shes also got her guardian angel, Bill, whos up to his old, foul-mouthed antics.Between learning how to wield her sword, personal training with a hot-headed demon, traveling to the Underground City not one but two times and discovering that the leader of the Underground City harbors a curious fascination with her, Lilys hope was abandoned a long time ago.To Hell And Back:Lily Harpers third mission into the depths of the Underground City finds her battling its demonic residents in the Toy Store, level four of the hellish afterlife.Although Lilys guardian angel, Bill, is by her side every step of the way, Bill isnt much of a consolation when it comes to fighting things that go bump in the night. Instead, Lily would much prefer to rely on the brawn and brains of the two thousand year old Celtic warrior, Tallis Black. But Tallis is busy battling his own demons...the internal type.While in the Underground City, Lily finds herself on the wrong end of a demons wrath. A surprising encounter with the Master of the Underground City, Alaire, not only ensures her survival but also leaves her in the unenviable position of being in Alaires debt. Its no secret that Alaire harbors a strange and unsettling fascination with Lily but shes more concerned with solving Talliss deep and dark mysteries hidden beneath his stoic exterior.While becoming better acquainted with the master of the Underground City and coming ever closer to unraveling the enigma that is Tallis Black, Lily can only hope she makes it through hell and back.
