Hell Holes 3: To Hell and Back


The front cover of Hell Holes 3 With Earth’s combined militaries unable to stop the demonic aliens’ invasion, a desperate plan is hatched to take the fight to Hell itself.

The beautiful young photojournalist, Aileen O’Shannon, is not who she seems. For centuries, she has been a demon hunter, a sorceress who has tracked and killed small bands of demons that occasionally crossed into our world. But that changed when she joined Dr. Jack Oswald’s expedition to study one of the hundreds of huge holes that mysteriously appeared overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle.

Instead of small, sporadic incursions, hordes of demons now pour from these hell holes like water from a sieve. With bombing little more than a losing game of whack-a-mole, Earth’s armies are unable to destroy the portals. When Jack suggests a desperate plan, he is drafted to join Aileen and a team of other sorcerers and Army Rangers to travel to the demon homeworld. Once there, they will unleash a plague virus and set off a nuclear bomb to destroy the portal complex. It’s a suicide mission. But Aileen has given Jack’s wife her word to bring him back safely, and the demons have already killed three men under her protection. Just how far will Aileen go to avoid losing another?

Amy Shannon – Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews

Amy's Bookshelf 5-Star Review“Firesmith pens a magnificent story in Hell Holes 3: To Hell and Back. It’s another action-packed, demon fighting, wondrous story. The story brings in the believable, even if almost impossible. This book deserves a second read! (and maybe more). This story was intriguing and kept the reader guessing. The author’s technique of raw, magnetic characters and great plotlines is a gift. It’s a great story to follow and try to figure out what will happen next. Hell Holes 3: To Hell and Back is a definite recommendation by Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews. ” Original review

Author’s Commentary

Although the title, To Hell and Back, has been used several times for books and movies, it seemed particularly apt for this book, and I couldn’t resist using it one more time.

One thing I liked about this book was that it enabled me to provide some backstory for Aileen O’Shannon, the very old and mysterious curatrix of the Tutores Contra Infernum. The rescue of the human and alien slaves from Hell also provided the impetus for the prequel, Hell Holes: A Slave’s Revenge.
