Are you ready for one hell of a bumpy ride?
A man's daily commute becomes a hellish nightmare in this chilling account of a horrific bus crash that transforms a fateful ending into a painful beginning for an unlucky lot who are forced to endure.
Based on an age-old premise but with a fresh perspective that's so frightening, it may just make you think twice about your own mortality.


So when I saw what this book was about I was thinking it was going to be straight up horror. For me it wasn’t at all scary didn’t give me goosebumps or anything. The only thing I think that I enjoyed was what was coming out of the sky to grab those waiting in line, to knowing that the level you start at is determined by the bad deeds you did on Earth while you were alive. That comes right out of the book.

What this story is, is about a man who dies and ends up in hell pretty much and a little of what he endures while there.

This is a short story so if I write too long of a review I will be giving away the story being told. I think the author could have added more scariness to what the main character was being put through also to maybe have him relive some of the “bad” deeds he might have done. I do believe the author did a good job with detailing some things to what the main character was seeing and observing. For this I am going to bump it up to three stars.

Give this book a read and see what you think.

R.K. Howard
R.K. HOWARD’s primary writing goal is to engage readers with a fresh, cinematically edgy writing style. His ultimate high in this endeavor has been hearing back from readers regarding how he’s gotten inside their heads, poked their hearts, and ultimately thumped every emotion they have. Ryan’s ask for you is to give him the same chance. Come on–he double-dares you.

When Ryan is not writing or marketing his fiction, odds are he’s probably incubating gnarly software in Seattle where he resides with his beautiful wife and teenage kiddos; he’s also been known to day-dream about putting his Hollywood experience to use by producing indie-film versions of his stories.
“Yeah, one of these days I’m gonna do it…one of these days.”
