Dealing with the running of Heaven, the creation of a new Earth, and a literal administrative Hell has the newly deified Kate and Daniel both frazzled and emotionally drained in Earth, the third book of Mur Lafferty‘s Afterlife series. Despite their godly powers and knowledge, they lack the experience to handle their new positions as gracefully as they would like. In fact, Kate relies heavily on her heavenly advisers while Daniel frets about how to run Hell on his own.
These initial problems lead to tension between the two friends. Kate’s aggravation is plain as Daniel complains about his responsibilities. This time though, their travels through the afterlife don’t provide the answers the seek, and they must ultimately find the solutions within themselves. Meanwhile, mistakes of epic proportions threaten the tender new Earth and its inhabitants. Will Kate and Daniel solve their problems and save the Universe?
You’ll need to read the book to find out.
Fans of speculative fiction, especially lovers of mythology, will enjoy this book. However, readers should begin with the first book in the series, Heaven, to avoid confusion. The first three books are well worth the read, and I’m looking forward to reading Wasteland, the fourth book in the Afterlife series.
