Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, none of the pens work, the coffee machine has been out of order for a century, and the only drink on offer is Jägermeister, but Pey has a plan—and all he needs is one last member of the Harrison family to sell their soul.

When the Harrisons retreat to the family lake house for the summer, with their daughter Mickey’s precocious new friend, Ruth, in tow, the opportunity Pey has waited a millennium for might finally be in his grasp. And with the help of his charismatic coworker Calamity, he sets a plan in motion.

But things aren’t always as they seem, on Earth or in Hell. And as old secrets and new dangers scrape away at the Harrisons’ shiny surface, revealing the darkness beneath, everyone must face the consequences of their choices.

Why I love it

You already have a lot of ideas about Hell.

As soon I read the first line of Sign Here, I wanted to read more. It turned out I did have a lot of ideas about what Hell might be like. Author Claudia Lux managed to replace many of them with some of her own.

In this book, the underworld is largely a maddening bureaucracy populated by doomed souls. One of them is Peyote Trip, the heart and soul of Sign Here. Yes, both of those things do exist in this version of Hell.

Peyote not only has a job to do, he wants a promotion. But first he needs to get one more member of the Harrison family to sell their soul. Like everything in Hell (and on Earth) this is easier said than done, especially with a family that has so many secrets.

This is not an easy book to categorize, which is part of what makes it such a compulsive read. Claudia Lux has written an incredible novel that has a little bit of everything: thrilling twists, a fast-paced plot, lots of hidden agendas, dysfunctional family drama, and sharp, witty writing. Despite literally being set in Hell, this is not a bleak, heavy novel. It’s funny. And on top of everything else, it’s a moving story with a surprising amount of heart.

Sign Here is a knockout of a debut. Don’t miss this wholly original page-turner!

    This is the best book I’ve read this year. Twists & turns. Lots of side stories & mysteries to piece together. It kept me hooked from the start. I loved that it was written as a quick read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    I’m in awe. Chilling revelations, thrilling characters and Lux’s jaw-dropping and delightfully witty descriptions of Hell and the ever complex world above made this an unforgettable read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This book was a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️stars for me. Lux’s voice was humerus and engaging and the narrative flowed nicely. Only downside was the short chapters, which made the sections seem a little choppy.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!! This was such a phenomenal book! There was a twist at the end that I honestly didn’t see coming. This isn’t the type of book I normally read, but it had me hooked from the start!

    Titillating and humorous. This dark ride kept my attention piqued the whole time! A macabre look at friendship that fills you with hope while respecting the beautiful frailties of human life. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
