“To Hell and Back.” reviews.
“Mark’s vision of the hell he describes in this story of a former assassin on a mission that matters is not only wrought with descriptions that are the stuff of nightmares, but is also infused with his cheeky sense of style. Mark takes his unlikely heroine on a jaunt through the caverns of hell itself and his visceral descriptions of her experiences bring to mind strong Clive Barker influences, he nails the impossible and horrific with his words! His quote: “The way back isn’t always the way home” stuck with me long after I finished reading.” Ruthann Jagge, author.
“Very imaginative and I enjoyed it because, with the demons and witches and salt circles, it felt like watching an episode of (my guilty pleasure 🤭) Supernatural.” Farrah, Goodreads review.
“A devilish story about a woman, Amelia, who is forced to travel to the underworld to kill a specific prisoner in order to save her kidnapped daughter. This was one crazy ride!” Brigett Nelson, Author and Reviewer.
“…the final confrontation was cool.” Javier, Goodreads review.
“Very cool themes of paranormal, horror, and suspense. Not to mention a kickass main character.” Kayla Krantz, author.
“There are stories that fit into the realm of Fantasy like “To Hell and Back” with its epic quest that plays with what it means to ensure survival” Hollis Queens, Goodreads review.
