Review of “Even Hell has Standards: Pride” by Chantal Noordeloos



Sometimes life brings out the worst in a person, but Adolf Zakerny was born for evil. After a life of torment and murder, all in the name of Hell, it’s time for Zakerny to take his place amongst the demons. Will the blood he spilled appease the charismatic Lord of Hell, or will Zakerny’s Pride come to a fall?

‘Pride’ is the first of seven short stories in the ‘Even Hell Has Standards’ series, where Chantal Noordeloos takes the reader through the darker side of human nature, and it’s road to redemption. This is Hell as you’ve never seen it before.


I came across this short story through an ad on Facebook and I’m so glad that I took a chance on it! I’ve never read a book about Hell before.

I was utterly entranced by the plot line of a person who is sent to Hell and comes face to face with the devil. I really had no idea what to expect from it as I had never read any of her previous work before, but the story was very well-written and evocative.

This story is nowhere near what I thought it would be. I expected the typical version of Hell that we are all used to hearing about, but this world that Chantal created was gripping and thought-provoking.

I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil anything for you all, but I highly recommend it if you are looking for a short story that is completely different from anything you’ve ever read before!

Final verdict: 5 out of 5 stars!
