When the devil kidnaps her daughter, the agnostic host of a paranormal television show must set aside her doubt and find a way into hell to save her little girl.

This story is inspired by the myth of Persephone, the Goddess of Spring, who was kidnapped by Hades and taken to the underworld. My granddaughter's name is Persephone, although she insists we call her Goddess when in public. I would go to hell and back for her.

As the host of the paranormal TV show "Do You Believe It," Emily Goodman has made it her mission to debunk all myths and urban legends. When she meets Satan in a haunted house one night, though, little does she realize that calling him a fraud will bring an end to her skepticism forever - in ways she could never before imagine. After Satan kidnaps Emily's six-year-old daughter, April, the determined mother is forced to break into the dark underworld and battle the devil's most vicious demons to save her - but even if she manages to spare April's life, there's no guarantee that they'll make it out of the tortuous dimension alive...

Satan's Mirror is one hell of a literary thrill ride (pun intended). In vivid, mind-bending - and borderline terrifying - fashion, author Roxanne Smolen takes the reader on an eye-opening trip through the darker dimensions of her quite fertile imagination. Readers are sure to find themselves thoroughly consumed by the pure passion of Emily's desperate rescue mission, and they will be doubly enraptured by Smolen's breathtaking descriptions of the evil underworld and its nightmarish terrain. Combining her masterful handling of suspense with the sheer believability of the unknown spiritual world that lies beyond, Satan's Mirror is a dynamic thriller from a noteworthy literary talent. Highly recommended.
