A little different from anything I've read before and I really enjoyed how unique it was. It's a little humor, a little family drama, a little mystery, and a little bit horror.
The main character is in the deals department on the fifth floor of hell, and needs one last soul from the Harrison family to achieve his goals. Most of his work is done from an office and he's able to transport himself into the human world to "seal a deal" when the time comes.
I think the clash of genres was great and I wasn't expecting the dark humor but wound up loving it.
Here's the blurb:
Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, none of the pens work, the coffee machine has been out of order for a century, and the only drink on offer is Jägermeister, but Pey has a plan—and all he needs is one last member of the Harrison family to sell their soul.
When the Harrisons retreat to the family lake house for the summer, with their daughter Mickey’s precocious new friend, Ruth, in tow, the opportunity Pey has waited a millennium for might finally be in his grasp. And with the help of his charismatic coworker Calamity, he sets a plan in motion.
But things aren’t always as they seem, on Earth or in Hell. And as old secrets and new dangers scrape away at the Harrisons’ shiny surface, revealing the darkness beneath, everyone must face the consequences of their choices.
