Praise for Living Hell…


"Jinks' well-thought-out environs and rational characters help ground this otherwise out-of-control interstellar thriller."--Booklist

“'Life is a force that cannot be tamed,'” observes Cheney, and readers will likely spend a long time—after their heart rates have gone back to normal—reflecting on just how true that is."--Bookpage

"Gleeful "Alien"-esque action adventure...Packed with thrills, this deserves equally over-the-top CGI. In a word—AWESOME."--Kirkus

"Jinks (The Reformed Vampire Support Group) remains adept at action sequences and creating a pervasively tense environment...With plenty of gruesome creatures (and demises) that owe a thing or two to films like Aliens, this is science fiction for horror fans."--Publishers Weekly
