ONE HELL OF A RIDE by Seanan McGuire

(circa 1928-???)

After a rather...eventful...visit to Tempe, Arizona, Jonathan Healy wants nothing more than to return to his home in Buckley Township, Michigan, where at least the threats are generally familiar ones. With the last of the blood mopped up and the locals none the wiser, it seems he's just a train ride away from getting his wish.

Of course, there are a few small complications. Like the lovely and occasionally violent Miss Frances Brown, former star of the Campbell Family Circus, who seems to have become his new traveling companion. And then there's the matter of the train having driven through a dimensional gateway into Hell...

Maybe Jonathan shouldn't be quite so worried about getting back to Michigan. Maybe his time would be better spent in worrying about how to get off the train while he, and Fran, are still among the living.

I read this story in one sitting and really enjoyed it! It was fun, filled with interesting and dangerous creatures, two very cool main characters, and a train worming its way through a hellish portal. Cool!

Now, I can't wait to receive my copy of Discount Armageddon. :)
