Having lived up and down the East Coast, William Galaini finally settled outside of DC after a charming stream of career failures that ranged from the hospitality business to the military.

Helllbound – Book 1

In New Dis, Purgatory, there is no rest for the dead. Sprouting from the rim of Hell’s depths, not even this bohemian city of the afterlife—full of mercantile enterprises, engineering innovations, and political intrigue—is immune to the tragedies filtering down into it as war and endless suffering rage on Earth above.

Helllbound – Book 2

Can vengeance against an ancient enemy wash away her centuries of shame?

“Galaini hits a ripping line drive over the left field fence! Imagine: a beautifully written fantasy novel, set in the pits of Dante’s Hell … with Steampunk tech … and historical figures you may never have known … and incredible imagery … and I could go on and on and on! This series is a must read for mature audiences (imo) but maybe not so much for the little ones. Some serious adult themes, historically accurate racism language, as well as some gorgeously descriptive violence and gore are my reasons. But here’s the deal: I’m team Boudica. **** Sun Tsu! That is all.” ~ Amazon Customer, Verified Purchase (5 STARS)

“ENGAGING READ: I would liken it to the Xena Roman arc crossed with the Doctor Who episode ‘The Eaters of Light.’ This installment is even more engaging than its predecessor.” ~ Hibel (5 STARS)

“YES!!! Character development is amazing, and the world building is truly imaginative.” ~ Lester (5 STARS)
