The quest for power is the delusions of grandeur on a path of destruction. Freedom is the illusion that masked the corruption. Sandman and Vijay are forced to live with the political deceit, but still have aspirations for true freedom. Reality’s motto for Sandman and Vijay, as well as for others like them, is only the survival of the strongest can hope for an enduring future.  

Hell On Earth is the second book in the Hellscape series. The plot is an in-depth account of life on colonized planets centuries after Earth was destroyed. Though the location is different, the same method of governing the masses of people is the same as Earth’s current government system with a few added horrors.

Sandman is a gutter, the term used for Hell’s End orphans who will do anything to survive, even turn on each other if someone feels they are a threat to the rest of the group. Sandman is intelligent, strong, fast as well as extremely capable with a knife. He can kill without hesitation. Escaping to Mars is the first time Sandman was able to sit outside in the sun.

Vijay moved to Mars after his large family died under suspicious circumstances, covered up by the government. Vijay’s skills are in the highly technical category.

Ally Blue has created an exceedingly riveting as well as a very enjoyable saga that goes beyond outstanding. The storyline compels the readers to look at the cruelties vividly illustrated and see Earth’s sadistic potential for the future. In addition to the political nightmares, there is a scorching intimacy scene that establishes Sandman and Vijay’s capacity to express love for each other even during the worst of conditions imaginable.
