Publisher's Summary

Satan has made a new demon, and he's a doozy, maybe the most powerful ever created. There's just one problem: this freshly-minted hellion isn't sure he wants the job.

In the wacky final volume of the Circles in Hell series, Steve Minion attends Beast Barracks, where he learns both the arcane and mundane arts of being a servant of the Devil. Strength, speed, and endurance are all part of a demon's physical makeup, but he must be taught to be sneaky, cruel, and ruthless and of course to ignore personal hygiene.

As Steve begins work as a full-fledged bad guy, he must confront the inevitable: demons exist to torment the damned, and Hell's former handyman-in-chief doesn't seem to have the stomach for the work.

Still, there's no alternative for our hero. Once a demon, always a demon, as the saying goes. Steve's stuck in his new role, but really, what good to anyone is a reluctant demon?

    "Spectacular finish to a truly wonderful series"

    Well written. Great ending to the series. The only bad part is it's over. There is room for more to come and hopefully the author will return to the series or do some spin offs or shirts as the world is quite infinite. The narrator ranks amongst my favorites. The depth of voice and ability to create the voices and characters is truly spectacular. I received this book from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review.

    If it has letters strung into words that form a story which draws me in, I won't be able to resist it. Is there a reader's anonymous?

    "A satisfying conclusion to the Circles in Hell bks"

    This is apparently the last book of the series, and it shifts gears a bit as instead of a mystery or broken equipment, Steve has to deal with his new role as a demon in hell . The story progresses as we follow Minion through his attempts to become demonic. Favourite characters return, with some new ones added in, and there are still some wonderful plot surprises encountered.

    Narration continued in the same vein as the previous 3 books. The tone and sound of characters remaining consistent with previous books.
    Series can sometimes drop off as they progress, but |enjoyed this one as much as previous instalments. The entire series is worth listening to and this last book gives a nice satisfying conclusion .

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

    "Grand finale'"

    I am so happy that I stumbled on this author and this series. Each book was better than the previous one, creating in me a sense of old friends. Perfect pairing of story characters and narrator.

    "Demons Roar! Humans Drool! Finale"
    What did you love best about The Reluctant Demon?

    The entire Circles in Hell series is funny. Follow the adventures and trials and tribulations of Steve Minion from Super of maintenence of Hell to a graduate of Demon Academy. If this the finale of the series, I'll miss the witty writing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are quite a few - Steve, the main character. Boo, his trusty sidekick, Steve's succubus main squeeze, on and on.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The graduation ceremony and the celebration afterwards.


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

    Laugh out loud. Though this one was a bit ..."darker, reflective" on the part of Steve than the others in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    The series is enhanced tremendously by the narration talents of Michael Gilboe. Good choice for these.

    Thank you for the opportunity to listen and review these audio books!

    Loved it, cant wait till next adventure. Funny but clever interweaving major characters from relatively current history and interesting philosophies.

    "Hell of a ride!"

    I loved this ride through hell. Michael Gilboe's performance was excellent and there's room for Michael Cain to expand this series if he's of a mind.
