From Hell With Love: By Simon R. Green



It's no walk in the park for a Drood, a member of the family that has protected humanity from the things that go bump in the night for centuries. They aren't much liked by the creatures they kill, by ungrateful humans, or even by one another.

Now their Matriarch is dead, and it's up to Eddie Drood, acting head of the family, to figure out whodunit. Unpopular opinion is divided: it was either Eddie's best girl, Molly. Or Eddie himself. And Eddie knows he didn't do it.


Imagine if James Bond had attended Hogwarts, and could use magic and had a magic suit that protected him. Now imagine that the bad guys don’t just have guns and sharks, they have magic, doomsday machines, and advanced scientific technology. This is just a taste of what Green’s fourth The Secret Histories Novel, From Hell With Love, is like.

From Hell With Love is an exciting and exhilarating novel that takes readers on a rollercoaster of a ride through the mysteries of the Drood family. I would recommend to any new reader that they read the first three books in the series, as it explains the back stories of some of the characters better than the quick explanations this book offers. That said if necessary there are enough explanations to get a first time reader through From Hell With Love. Not that I’d recommend it.

Fans of Green’s other bestselling series, such as the Deathstalker and Nightside series will love Green’s continuation of action packed worlds as he weaves all three of his hit series together in the Secret Histories Series. Finally, From Hell With Love ends with a shocking conclusion that will leave fans and first time readers alike stunned and clamoring for the next few sentences of the next novel.

All in all From Hell With Love is a great novel that any fan of science fiction, fantasy, or action adventure novels will love.
