I genuinely have no idea why Adrian Tchaikovsky doesn't get more recognition. He's got a list as long as your arm of high-quality output, almost nobody writes more books faster, he just won a Hugo, but he seems to have largely slipped under the geek culture radar and doesn't get talked about much.

I frigging loved Shadows of the Apt, and that badly needs to be a D&D setting, by the way. And his WH40K novel was one of the better ones in recent years too.
He's also appeared on gaming podcast Good Friends of Jackson Elias Special: Adrian Tchaikovsky on Non-Human Intelligences and Call of Cthulhu actual play How We Roll 001 - Flotsam & Jestam - Inheritance - The Gilman House - HowWeRoll Podcast

So how is the actual adventure? How long is it? What levels does it cover? Is it a sequel to Descent into Avernus in any way?
FYI, the ToC was added to the OP. The adventure appears to be a romp through all 9 layers of Hell and covers approximately 180 pages (though that seems to include a bit of lore for each layer). I would guess the assumption is you would level as your delve deeper into Hell.

This is an avernus sequel.

NICE

Here's hoping it gets a Fantasy Grounds release soon!
