I have enjoyed the series. I figured out some of the plot twists before they happened, but not so much as to ruin the story. The entire trilogy has been well done. It was nice to have the species rift explained. Glad that some of the characters got their comumpance.

This final book of the series nicely wraps everything up. These two authors really know how to write space opera.

Although the General has twice defeated the Constellation armada, they still pose a threat. And he also faces the greater threat of the Ro-Xayans who in the previous book destroyed the Deep Zone planet Candela with two asteroids. We also learned in the previous book that they were also responsible for bombarding their home planet Hellhole many eons ago.

There is a big reveal near the end of this final book that changes everything.

Hellhole is a long and complex trilogy. I was glad when Anderson and Herbert got the 3rd installment completed. The story has lots of threads that need to be followed and lots of "scientific" concepts that require the reader to suspend judgement, but it all hangs together. They are able to describe scenes clearly enough so the reader can visualize all of the strange landscapes and situations. The Xayans (the alien life forms) also were described well enough to form clear pictures. It was a satisfying read.

The final book in the Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson trilogy has come to a satisfying conclusion. Consistent with the two other novels in the series, it feels as if they wrote them all at one time without taking a break. Where one book ends, the next begins right away.

While many elements were predictable, a few creative curve balls regarding alien politics and some unexpected surprises kept the storyline engaging. Although the depth of the characters were never really explored as deep as I would have liked, the scenes and action moved at such a nice pace, that flaw never bothered me too much.

As a light and easy science fiction / space opera goes, this is a perfect book for beginners to break into the genre. Nothing too overly violent or sexual, with virtually no bad language, this could easily be categorized in the young adult section. The bottom line is that the authors told a good story with a variety of heroes and villains that kept me constantly entertained. The Dune series is better, but those hungry for more Herbert and Anderson should enjoy exploring this new universe, too.

If you can look past the exhaustingly wordy character names book three brings all the plot points to a rather abrupt end. It is a bit clustered as you bounce between the different stories. I don't want to get too into details but a lot of people have bashed on the writers in the past. This series is entertaining but so closely plotted to the Dune-type story line it often over shadows any enjoyment.

This book is the third in the trilogy.
The first two I read in paperback form but when I finished the second - which I found by accident in a local bookshop - the first had been sitting on my bookshelf for quite some time - I couldn't wait for the third to appear in paperback so I bought the Kindle version.
Better and less long winded than the "sequels" and "prequels" to Dune. Exiting and fast reading. Characters that you love to hate and even admire for the depths they sink to. The strength in the "goodies" shines in the writing and I (a very fast reader) read all three in less than a week. Having written that, I must state that this is not literature. The books are sheer entertainment for a reader who enjoys pure science fiction. This is why I gave 4 stars and not 5. ("The Luminaries" for example, I gave 5 and would have given 6)

This is a decent capstone to the trilogy. If you've weathered this far then like me, you found enough like able characters, interesting plot, and fascinating setting to read through to the end. However, this story -and trilogy as a whole- leaves a lot to be desired.

The good: the rich setting is further fleshed out, a few new and existing characters get more developed, and there's a hell of a twist.

The bad: character motivation, actions, and perceptiveness are still fairly... alien? Simple? Both heroes and villains have a distressing tendency to devolve to more two dimensional personas at times. And while there's a good twist, there's also a fairly bad one in the form of a "sudden, inevitable" and completely unforeshadowed betrayal.

On balance, it's an easy read, and if you're a fan of SF pulp (monarchies in space, colorful psychic aliens, daring space fights) and can manage to ignore some of the more teeth-grinding moments of character interaction, you'll enjoy this.

I loved the first 2 Hellhole books and there was no way I was going to not get Inferno. It kept me interested and on the edge of my seat through most of the book. I had my usual conflicts. I was eager for the end to see how it ended but was sad when it did because I knew the book was done. I've read just about everything Kevin writes and Inferno did not disappoint. I loved the entire Hellhole series. Keep up the great work Kevin and Brian.
