Chapter 2 begins with Heather obtaining admission into the seemingly popular and crowded club. In this scene we learn that Von is more than a bouncer, but his role as llygad is unexplained. The reader is also treated to a seductive feeding scene between Dante, Gina and Jay and we glimpse just how popular Dante is with the club crowd. It also becomes evident that Lucien seems to be in charge of things. When Dante interrupts his playtime because he senses that Lucien is troubled it becomes clear that these cast of characters are important in more ways than one.
Club Hell isn't necessarily the main setting for the story but I felt like it was definitely an introduction to Dante's world. Dante, Inferno, Lucien, and the club scene plays out through the entire novel. The wardrobe, music, and friends can be seen as an extension of Dante's personality. He is fiercely loyal to those he cares for and he takes that role very seriously. This is a crowd that is often misrepresented in books and movies but I feel that Adrian Phoenix gave readers an honest view- one that led to an emotional investment in these characters.
What part of the Club Hell chapter did you feel was most important? Did the description of Club Hell tempt you to learn more about the goth crowd? Would you visit Club Hell? I don't know about you but I really want my own bat winged throne!
