Steve and Orson are back in this cracked sequel to Hell's Super, book two in the new satire and humor series, Circles in Hell. This time, the guys must fix Hell's heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, which has failed. Hell is getting progressively colder, and things are a lot more serious than devils and demons needing to put on some sweaters.
If you've ever used the expression, "It will be a cold day in Hell before...", then you know that there are metaphysical ramifications involved. The HVAC system must be fixed before all Hell freezes over, which is an even worse state than just a bit of frigid weather. Still, anything can happen on a cold day in Hell...even a paranormal comedy romance that becomes a whacky love triangle.
A Cold Day in Hell is the second volume in the fantasy comedy series, Circles in Hell. It has been compared to other works of paranormal humor and Hell fiction including The Screwtape Letters and Good Omens and to the writings of Tom Holt, Christopher Moore, and Douglas Adams.

Loved the 1st book and was thrilled to listen to the 2nd one. The same AMAZING narrator. The same cast of hells superintendent, person wells, Saran, beazy, Boo the bat out of hell, Florence nightingale and more as well as a new group of characters just as kookier and lovable as the originals. Can't wait for the rest of the series!!!! I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review
The comedy continues with just as many bad jokes as were in the first book. The 'bad guy' wasn't as obvious in this one. The narration was excellent and the pace was steady. I look forward to the next book.

It's an easy story to follow. Breaks up well into commuting or exercising times. Doesn't require any thought. Pure pulp.
Fantastic book with great story line. Narration is the best I ever heard. Also sound effects were top notch. Wonderful series of books that never seem to get old.
Audio book lover with sci-fi leanings
"A Cold Day in Hell" is a welcome addition to the Circles in Hell series. Not only are our protagonists much more developed as characters, but a deeper story and additional characters that will continue throughout the series are introduced that lead to a much larger and cohesive story that comes to resolution two books later in book 4.
Give this one a chance and be sire to save 2 credits as you'll want to pick up the next two in the series as well!
I really enjoyed this book. Though it is the second book in a series, I think it could stand alone if someone is interested in reading the series and starting here. There are times when the author refers to incidents in the previous book, but enough background is given so that you don't feel like you're missing out. That being said, the whole series is really great, so it is definitely worth checking out all books in the series. This book is really funny, and I enjoy the sarcastic wit and satire. This book moves at a great pace, keeps your interest, and will make you laugh along the way. I listened to the Audible audio version narrated by Michael Gilboe, and I thoroughly enjoyed the narration. Gilboe's voices and sound effects really add to the story. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.
This book was annoying and uninteresting. I couldn't stand the different voices the narrator used. If anything it took away from and already lame book. Not worth the listen!

"Grown up funny book"
Really enjoyed this book being a property manager for a job it made me see the funny side of my work and I could imagine people I know in some of the characters.
