Volume Four of New York Times best selling author Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed creation, with updated coloring and new trade dress. Ten thousand years ago, Morpheus condemned a woman who loved him to Hell. Now the other members of his immortal family, The Endless, have convinced the Dream King that this was an injustice. To make it right, Morpheus must return to Hell to rescue his banished love – and Hell’s ruler, the fallen angel Lucifer, has already sworn to destroy him.

A great pick-up from Volume 3.  I loved Dream’s journey to Hell and all the characters he meets along the way.  We get another appearance from Death (my favorite of the Endless).  And we meet Lucifer again.  He is an interesting character; one that I really can’t figure out.  I also loved the reappearance of his banished love.  We met her in a previous volume. I can’t wait to see what happens next on the journey.
