Publisher's Summary

Lucifer, Prince of Darkness, is off to a rough start. He's been plucked from Hell and dropped onto a rural Georgia highway. Naked. In the rain. And he's about to be hit by a car. To make matters worse, Lucifer is being hunted by an agent of God who has the power to destroy him.

Barabbas is looking forward to the end of his journey. Gifted with immortality, he has spent 2,000 years searching for the fallen angels who waged war against Heaven. They've been sent to Earth from Hell one by one, and Barabbas offers them all the same deal: rejoin the Kingdom of Heaven or perish forever.

Now his final adversary has arrived, and the hunt becomes something he never expected when Lucifer reveals himself to the world and uses the age of information to his advantage.

Before Barabbas can face off against Lucifer, he'll have to handle the geriatric Horsemen of the Apocalypse, not to mention a zombie army. But with his vampire companion, Kate; a motley group of NSA agents led by a 14-year old girl; and the Three Wise People, Barabbas might just stand a chance.

    Story
    "A Really Fun & Entertaining Book"
    Any additional comments?

    There are a whole list of things I could say about this book. The bottom line is it's a really fun, humorous, entertaining and enjoyable end of days story. This book is a fantastic way to pass the hours on a road trip, it made the time fly. The story will keep you laughing out loud or smiling continually.

    A great cast of characters including but not limited to Lucifer, vampires , cherubs, rogue angels, zombies and more with plenty of action, twists and intrigue to keep the story moving at a nice fast pace. Never a dull moment.

    Great narration. Erik Johnson did a great job with the narration. Nice voice, easy to listen to for hours at a time. Clearly spoken. Nice even pace. Really good character voices. Even his female character voices are good. He was able to bring the characters, their humor, sarcasm and the story to life. I would definitely listen to more books he narrates. Very entertaining and enjoyable.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.

    Story
    "The Devil, Demons and Angels - Oh My"

    I wasn't sure about this story at the beginning chapters. But when the character list was added to the story made me want to listen to more.

    Holy Hell tells of the dark characters in the Bible and expands on them in a unique and hilarious way. Barabbas and Kate were my favorites. I thought it might end up being a series, however it did end so well there is no need for another chapter.

    Erik Johnson is a perfect Lucifer and all the others in this tale.

    If you enjoy sometimes dark and quirky humor you will enjoy this story.

    Narration is really good for a multitude of characters. The story starts out really good, the author builds a good end of times story with likable characters. The story, however, goes in some pretty silly directions. The satan character is so unbelievable, or maybe every other characters treatment of him. The ending was not a great one either. The main story was enjoyable though as the characters are enjoyable.

    Story
    "A fun read!!!"

    I wasnt entirely sure about this book, but it was a very sound adventure and fun. I was hoping about halfway thru this would be a series, about Barabbas and Kate's adventures hunting down the rogue angels. But it was a satisfying whole story. If your looking for a good adventure with some good well written characters this is a good one. I will be looking for more from Mr Saunders

    I love the multiple dimensions that books offer as a place to dwell for moments or the end of time.

    "Interesting End Of Days story"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    This was a different End Of Days story and I liked the author's ability to skillfully weave the characters together with the power of belief. Well done.

    Happy ending (depending on who you rooted for) and appreciated the contemporary setting and attitudes.

    I would recommend this to those who have deeply held Christian beliefs and behaviors.

    Story
    "Interesting Take on the End of Days"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Holy Hell to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The Erik Johnson did a fantastic job with the wide spectrum of characters in this action filled tale.


    Would you be willing to try another book from William Saunders? Why or why not?

    Yes. Saunders has a unique and interesting take on over told end of days tales. In addition, Saunders expertly depicts fight scenes that allows the reader to feel like he's actually there.


    What does Erik Johnson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Johnson brilliantly keeps the reader engaged with the story regardless of it is dramatizing dialogue between the characters or narration. 'Holy Hell' has a very wide range of characters, but Johnson was able to inhabit each character uniquely. For a male narrator, he does the female voices very well without doing the whole high pitched voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book was more action and intrigue than drama. So...I can't really pick a scene that was particularly moving.

    Story
    "You had me at "Baby Long Dong""
    If you could sum up Holy Hell in three words, what would they be?

    Original, funny. smart.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kate- I liked all of the characters, but she had some truly great lines. I loved how the author made the women kickass.


    Which character – as performed by Erik Johnson – was your favorite?

    He did a fantastic job- Kate, as I stated earlier, was laugh out loud funny, and I thought his Barabbas voice was sexy. The female federal agent was great, too. I want to listen to more of his work.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It had me laughing within the first few minutes- I couldn't wait to listen to all of it. And I'm hoping William Saunders can somehow contrive a sequel. There were also some points where I had to grab the tissues. I really cared about the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has to have one of the greatest opening chapters of any book I've listened to or read in quite some time. It made me think of a collaboration of Christopher Moore & Chuck Wendig.
