Review:Happy Hour in Hell by Tad Williams
Bobby's journey through hell is an emotional tour de force. While the first volume touched on the themes of redemption and characters of shades of grey this one takes it to the next level as Bobby encounters not only evil in hell but some good as well. It definitely doesn't shy away from some tough questions and the characterization definitely takes a step up from the previous volume.
My only critique would be the ending is a touch predictable and does seem a bit underwhelming compared to the rest of the story.
Overall Williams improves on his previous urban fantasy effort with a tough emotional punch. 8.25/10.
