Book Summary:

Peyote Trip, not his real name, has worked hard to get to the fifth floor of Hell. Now that he’s here, it is his job to land new souls to keep this messed-up operation running smoothly. In other words, he’s one of the people (demons?) you deal with when trading away your soul.

Believe it or not, Pey has a bigger plan than continuing to work up the hell-corporate ladder. All he has to do is get one more soul from the Harrison family, and he’ll finally have one he needs. Just one more soul and his goals will be in range.

My Review:

Huh. I’ve got to admit; Sign Here was nothing like what I expected. Granted, I only briefly scanned the description when picking my BOTM choices (I like surprises when I can arrange them). I thought this would lean more toward horror and less toward dark humor and satire.

Honestly, I kind of like what I ended up getting more. Sure, a horror book would have been fun, but it’s always nice to be surprised. And this satiric take on Hell was certainly that. Throw in the mystery elements, which made for a pretty unique read.

Believe it or not, Sign Here is told through multiple viewpoints. Pey is the primary perspective, with everything happening being connected to him in some way, shape, or form. It’ll just take a while before those connections are made clear.
