Description

For centuries, Miranda has run Prospero Inc., a company that, unbeknownst to the general public, has protected the world from disasters natural, magical, and man-made. But her father has been kidnapped, and is being held by vengeful demons in Hell who wish to reclaim the Prosperos' seven magical staffs, which Prospero himself procured from King Solomon centuries ago. Only Miranda, if she can win the cooperation of her contentious, idiosyncratic younger siblings, can survive the perils of Hell and save their famous father before he is mired forever in the lower realm. Fighting the supernatural terrors of Hell - as well as one another - Miranda and her family will be tested in more ways than they can imagine before this journey through Hell is done.show more
