Hellhole Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson read online review & book description:

Only the most desperate colonists dare to make a new home on Hellhole. Reeling from a recent asteroid impact, tortured with horrific storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and churning volcanic eruptions, the planet is a dumping ground for undesirables, misfits, and charlatans…but also a haven for dreamers and independent pioneers.

Against all odds, an exiled general named Adolphus has turned Hellhole into a place of real opportunity for the desperate colonists who call the planet their home. While the colonists are hard at work developing the planet, General Adolphus secretly builds alliances with the leaders of the other Deep Zone worlds, forming a clandestine coalition against the tyrannical, fossilized government responsible for their exile.

What no one knows is this: the planet Hellhole, though damaged and volatile, hides an amazing secret. Deep beneath its surface lies the remnants of an obliterated alien civilization and the buried memories of its unrecorded past that, when unearthed, could tear the galaxy apart.

    By Tmezones
    Decent writing with some interesting characters who slowly developed over the course of 700+ pages. Story could have been written in a much shorter length and been just as good, although the slow pace of the developing story can be enjoyed if the reader isn't looking for a quick resolution. Bad ending to the book.....in fact, no ending at all, just leaving the reader hanging in mid-air with nothing whatsoever resolved. Obviously a set-up for a continuing series, but the complete lack of any of the storyline makes me wonder if I really want to invest another 700 pages of effort to find.....what?
  • Frustrated

    By Eonaire
    I enjoyed the book, but the sudden and incomplete ending was very frustrating.
  • Disappointing ending. Sequels are obviously in the works.

    The ending to this book was a complete non ending. Very disappointing. It's obvious that the authors are planning a multi-book story arc... which I can live with, but there is very little closure to this part of the story. It's as if you were forced to exit the movie half-way through. Also, though competently written, I don't feel this book has much heart. The best sci-fi books are really more about investigating the human condition, and this is more about creating fabulous worlds. Unlike the Dune books of Herbert's father where people are often flawed, and multi-layered, most of the characters in this book are one dimensional props, and their relationships are simple, obvious, and thinly developed. I was really excited to see where Herbert and Anderson went after the completion of Dune. I think unfortunately it's not anything ground breaking, and easily ignored. I might read the next book by the pair, but I'm not looking forward to it. Hopefully it will be more satisfying.
  • Solid space opera

    Entertaining, but not as detailed or as deeply imagined as the 'honorverse'. Authors use a dozen or more characters to advance the story; all competent as I said. It's like...one could read it once but not feel as if they needed to ever read it again. Once is adequate.
