Review: Hell’s Geek (Welcome to Hell #5) by Eve Langlais

Being smart in Hell isn’t a blessing, it’s a curse. Poor Adexios, he just can’t live up to his dad's reputation—nor does he want to. He’s got bigger dreams than ferrying damned souls the rest of his life.

Problem is Lucifer’s up to his matchmaking tricks again and is determined to pair him with a violent Amazon warrior—with bodacious curves.

Dragged into the wilds of Hell, Adexios is supposed to locate demons and conscript them to the legion, but instead discovers a malignant force is at work, and if they’re not careful it might claim their lives.

Adexios is smart, educated and a complete disappointment to his parents. Son of Charon, he’s expected to follow in his dad’s footstep. But Adexios wants more out of life than ferrying damned souls the rest of his life. Of course with Lucifer up to his matchmaking tricks, Adexios may be getting more than what he  for wished…so long as he survives he the task Lucifer sends him on.

I have mixed feeling about Hell’s Geek. So many times I felt like Alice with the whole what’s up is down and thinking backwards. Sometimes I found myself lost trying to keep up with the ‘what’s bad is good’ bit. Equally, there were times that Valaska just irritated me. Yes, I like my women characters strong. However, I felt at times the dumb caveman mode versus being strong Amazon woman had her coming out of character too much. Maybe because my image of an Amazon warrior matches more up with Xena and not Conan.

Easily my two favorite characters were Adexios and Lucifer. A mischievous matchmaker, Lucifer has had me cracking up since the very first book. Adexios was a delight for me the whole way through. He starts as a useless nerd and despite coming into his own tough he-man, he never loses that nerdy side.

As a whole, I enjoyed Hell’s Geek. It was filled with laughs and adventures I have come to expect from Ms. Langlais’ books. The journey that Adexios and Valaska takes into Hell’s wilds and the mystery they uncover makes for fun afternoon read. Filled with interesting twists and playful banter, Hell’s Geek runs on high octane excitement from start to finish. And just when you think it can’t get any better, the books ends on a high laughable OhEmGee! twister that you won’t see coming. I’ll be counting the days until the next book comes out.
