Book Cover of Hell Holes 4: A Slave's Revenge

An award-winning prequel to the Hell Holes series of alien invasion novels, Hell Holes 4: A Slave’s Revenge is an epic story of love, loss, friendship, and survival under the most hellish of conditions.

After killing his father, a marauding band of alien demons teleports a fifteen-year-old boy, his mother, and his twin sister to Hell, a harsh planet orbiting a nearby star in the Demonic Empire. With survival extraordinarily difficult and far from certain, the captives quickly learn they have only two choices: to live as powerless slaves or to die and become food. As the boy grows into a man, he is forced to decide just how much he is willing to collaborate with his demon masters if he is to survive. How can he live long enough to take his revenge and regain his freedom without losing his humanity and his very soul?

Kirkus Reviews

“Firesmith jam packs his engaging story with otherworldly beasts… The author deftly describes a bleak but colorful hell… An engrossing dystopian thriller with a vibrant, beastly cast.” — Kirkus Reviews Read the complete Kirkus review here.

Midwest Book Review

“[R]eaders receive a powerful, action-packed introduction to the series… Vivid color drawings of these monsters pepper the account… The unexpected injection of wisdom from various sources lends a philosophical tone to this survival story that gives Paul courage as he rises to the position (and dubious privilege) of being a slave that oversees others… Prior series readers will appreciate the attention to detail that flushes out both the invasion specifics and Paul’s youth and coming of age, while newcomers will find Hell Holes a fitting introduction to the books that follow… It’s a riveting read for newcomers and prior fans alike, highly recommended for horror and sci-fi fans, who will enjoy blends of both in a coming-of-age story like few others.” – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

US Review of Books

“The author’s book blends science fiction with an action-based thriller into an entertaining and exciting read. With the momentum of Independence Day and a setting reminiscent of Total Recall, the novel carries readers through a brutal spacescape where psychological strength is just as vital as physical prowess. Paul is an insightful, strong narrator, and his conversational tone invites readers into the book. Paul’s narration is fast-paced, which also bolsters the action that occurs in the book. What will also attract readers is Paul’s strength in the face of intense adversity, especially as he resolves, “Should the demons dare attempt another invasion, we will be ready.” Readers of dystopian science fiction will appreciate this book, and those looking for a thriller that will keep them quickly turning the pages will need to look no further than this one.” – Nicole Yurcaba, Original review.


“A great addition to the Hell Holes series! A Slave’s Revenge is an adventure – in fact, the whole series is. I fell in love with the first of the series and read all the others in one breath. This book answered so many questions I had, it is a prequel to the series. It was exciting, and I’m glad the author did it. An absolute must-read for the fans of Hell Holes and all the readers who enjoy quality, compelling books.” Original review

Amy Shannon – Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews

“Firesmith pens a magnificent prequel to his Hell Holes Series. What I like about the story, besides the characters, the ultimate evil alien devils, is there are underlying plots, that are more than just part of the story, they are the story. This author has a great imagination, and I’m glad it’s being shared with stories. It is a very well-written story, and I enjoyed it. It is always a joy to read this author’s stories. A definite attention-grabber, so much I couldn’t put it down. It’s literally out of this world! Action-packed and it takes the reader on a superb journey. This read is more than just words on a page. Hell Holes 4: A Slave’s Revenge is a definite recommendation by Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews. I look forward to reading many more stories by this author.” Original review
