Widely and enthusiastically acclaimed, The Descent marked the debut of a powerful imagination and earned Jeff Long comparisons to Stephen King. Now, after three more suspenseful blockbusters, he returns to the captivating creatures he conjured in that first incredible novel, unleashing a story that will hook his fans and never let go. In The Descent, we discovered a world beneath our feet - a tubular nightmare of tunnels and subterranean rivers and seas inhabited by a savage race of hominids. Our search was to locate their leader, the so-called historical Satan. In Deeper, mankind once again confronts its cruel subterranean relatives, and we must descend even further. Searching for the hadal god, we reach down to our very genesis. With terrorism boiling up from the depths, we find ourselves drawn into a clash of civilizations - one primal, one modern - that forces us to confront our demons all over again. Mesmerizing, concussive, this darkly brilliant work of imagination galvanizes Jeff Long's reputation as a prodigious talent.

*Starred Review* In The Descent (1999), Long introduced us to hell: not the biblical hell, but the actual place. Hell, it turns out, is an underground world where a nasty race of humanoids called hadals lived for millennia, occasionally coming to the surface and wreaking havoc. In The Descent, the hadals were wiped out, or so we thought. Now, 10 years later, humans have colonized the Subterrain, but they're about to find out that some hadals have survived and that you can't really kill Satan. At least as exciting as its predecessor, this flashy, fast-paced sequel features a motley crew of characters—including one of the human survivors of the last novel, Ali Von Schade, who ventures deep into hell to rescue children who were abducted from the surface. In addition to Ali, the characters include a NASA researcher who spent two years exploring hell and who now has massive physical deformities, including a pair of horns; the mother of one of the missing children, whose journey into the Subterrain takes an unexpected toll on her; a filmmaker who disappeared into hell several years ago and who seems to have survived its perils; and a Navy SEAL sniper. Long has a knack for telling stories with inherently over-the-top premises, but he tells them so well and with such passion that we are brought totally under his spell. His characters are real and complex, his dialogue sharp, and his narrative stylish and frightening. This is one case where readers should be enthusiastically encouraged to go to hell. Pitt, David
