After the events of Hellhole Awakening, the people of Hellhole and the shadow-Xayans scramble to rally against the threat from the still-living rogue Xayans. Back on Sonjeera, the Monarchy is in an uproar after their surprising defeat and the breakaway of the Deep Zone planets. The dowager Queen decides to go to Hellhole on a diplomatic mission, hoping to keep her power. But after touring Hellhole, Queen Michella is shaken, and begins to realize that she can never have the old Monarchy back. Before the Queen can return to Sonjeera, she’s captured by the rogue Xayans and learns the reason for their attack: The orthodox Xayans had developed their minds to the point where they could evolve and, in so doing, trigger another Big Bang, wiping out everything. The rogue Xayans thought they succeeded in stopping the ascension, but the orthodox Xayans on Hellhole are nearly ready. Now, 22 huge asteroids from the outer reaches of the solar system are bearing towards Hellhole, summoned by the rogue sect as a last resort. Can all these lives and the planet itself be saved? Hellhole Inferno is the thrilling conclusion to Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Hellhole trilogy.

I liked the first two books of this series, I was a little disappointed in this the last book of the series. The ending was predictable and a bit rushed, by the end of the book I was starting to lose interest. The highlight of this book was Mr Brick's narration.
Began reading sci-fi 71 years ago, at age 4, will continue until my clock quits ticking.. Best education one could have ever wished for.
Perhaps most listeners would be pleased when they have, early, on. proven themselves right in fathoming the plot and envisioning the end correctly. I, however, was not. Early in this installment of the saga I lost some interest as i felt the final chapters would be obvious, I was right, no surprises. Maybe I have read to much Herbert/Andersson over the years. I am not saying the work is not good, as I did enjoy the visuals generated, but a predictable conclusion, in the end, left me mildly disappointed.
