When Sere Mal-Laurette escaped hell, she thought she'd left her demons behind her. But now that one has found his way through hell's gate, others are sure to follow. Then all hell will break loose.

If Sere fails to contain the little soulless bastards, the loas of the dead will likely figure out her true identity. Then they'll be all over her soul, and she can kiss immortality goodbye. Moreover, someone needs to send the demons back to where they came from before they wreak havoc on the citizens of New Orleans.

To prevent the demon doppelgängers from killing their human equivalents and taking over their lives, Sere will need the help of people she trusts--and some she doesn't. It's time for her to embrace the badass demon hunter she was always meant to be. To do so, however, she'll have to quickly figure out the line between protector of humanity and murdering psychopath.

Sere is hiding from the loas so they do not figure out her true identity while trying to follow and deal with a demon that found his way through hell’s gate and is causing havoc. If she can’t contain this problem, her immortality will disappear.

I always love a unique story line that hasn’t been done by every author in the genre, and Hell in a Head Gasket delivered just that. This is the first book I read of the author, so I would have liked a recap at the beginning so those that didn’t read the first series would understand certain things would have helped make sense of certain elements. Chasing demons, immortality and a woman who knows how to handle herself is just the beginning of what this book has to offer.

About the Author:
G.A. Chase's first official foray into writing was the science fiction series Technopia under the name Greg Chase.

But his passion for New Orleans pulled him from the stars back down to Earth. He fell in love with Big Easy the moment he ate his first dish of crawfish etouffee in a French Quarter restaurant. Gazing at the neighboring two-hundred-year-old structures, he announced to his wife, fellow writer Deanna Chase, that he could easily live in this city. Her look of shock indicated she thought he had been possessed by one of the city's demons.

That was in 2003 and that spirit still hasn't turned him loose. By writing stories inspired and based in New Orleans he hopes to placate his personal demons and angels.


  1. I'm always game for a unique story. This sounds thrilling. Love the title and cover art too!

  2. This sounds interesting! And you're right, it does like a pretty unique story, and those are getting harder for me to find in the UF genre. I didn't realize it was connected to another series, I may have to go see what that one is about!
