'Life is tough at the top when work is a matter of life or death.
It's one thing to run Mortmax International as head of a team, but it's quite another to rule alone. Staff fatalities have left Steven by himself on the Throne of Death, and there's no time to get comfortable. The Stirrer god's arrival is imminent, threatening life as we know it. Plus Steven has managed to mortally offend the only ally strong enough to help out.
'And how can he ask someone to marry him when the End of Days seems inevitable. As if they are going to think he's committed. The portents don't look good as a comet burns vast and looming in the sky and Steven can almost hear a dark clock ticking. He will have to play nice if he wants his ally back, and must address the madness of the Hungry Death within himself if he even has a chance at defeating the Stirrer god.
'If he fails, Hell and Earth are doomed and wedding bells will be quite out of the question.' (From the publisher's website.)
