Lou is a good kid. Okay, Lou tries to be a good kid. Being the heir to Hell makes that kind of hard. Lou has supernatural powers that scare the heck out of everyone the kid so much as brushes by on the streets, eyes that glow a bright, threatening shade of red, and glasses that just don't seem to hide those eyes nearly well eugh. On the bright side, Lou has seven friends who accept the scary powers and glowing eyes and who are brilliant in almost every possible way - on the other, t-so-bright side, Lou is hopelessly in love with one of them. Now, the heir to Hell doesn't always have good ideas - actually, Lou never has good ideas. One of Lou's t-good ideas is to enter a deadly game show run by the almost psychopathic GameMaster, a man with terrifying abilities and clearly too much time on his hands. Still, it might t have been such a t-good idea to join the show if only the GameMaster didn't have a mysterious hatred of Lou. Oh, but he does, so it was definitely a very t-good idea. The situation gets worse when the GameMaster decides Lou doesn't quite deserve friends; it gets even worse than that when Lucifer comes back into the picture. Everything hits rock bottom when Lou loses everything that matters.
