Gate of Torment (Hell Gates Book 1)
V.C. Marello, author
Three souls, knowingly and unknowingly, attempt to free themselves from their own self-imposed prison. One tormented by a pact for love. One tormented by the love for her family and its obligation. One tormented by the love for himself and avoidance to take a risk in his life. Their battle to free themselves depends on whether they choose to open, keep closed, or ignore the Hell Gate. Deep below the heart of San Francisco, concealed under an old grocery store, one of the Hell Gates remained silent since 1906 when, at that time, it opened and the fallen angel, Samael, momentarily escaped; destroying much of the city buildings with an earthquake and fire. Survivors described a fiery fiend moving throughout the city burning all in its path. Most accepted it figuratively, but was it? Over a hundred years later, we will find out the truth. So, in the spirit of any cheesy horror story, WHAT IF Hell, today, went shopping for virgin blood in San Francisco…how hard could that be?
