Jon Moss Reviews "To Reign in Hell"

Taking the 50-Word Review Challenge!

The book: To Reign in Hell
The author: Steven Brust
The reviewer: Jon Moss
Available from: Barnes & Noble
Brust’s second published novel, To Reign in Hell, seemed to me almost an alternate history/legend/mythos to Milton’s Paradise Lost. Not having read Milton’s works thoroughly, I probably missed much of Brust’s subtleties, wit and demonic humor. I still smiled at his quirky repartee among the bit characters. He coaxed me into sympathizing with the traditional enemy host, illustrated that truth can be in the eye of the beholder and perception is everything.
An extended review is available on Moss's blog.
