In North Carolina, It’s Just One Damned Thing After Another. Three years after Hell sets up an outpost in North Carolina, engineer Jack Halloran doesn’t find it unusual that the devil-plagued state is where he gets to work at his dream job, building a real space drive. Living in North Carolina has its own peculiar challenges, but the company he works for is great, the project is challenging, and his boss is almost too good to be true. For Rheabeth Samuels, running a company that could give humanity the stars is the best work she’s done in a long time. And her chief engineer has started to become more than just a prized employee. But plagued by gargoyles, gremlins, unreliable funding, and a devilish P.I. hired by Hell’s worst clients, Jack and Rhea are racing for the heavens against a ticking clock...and they can only hope to touch the stars if they reach for them together.
