Publisher's Summary

Hell. The final destination for many a villain.

Brought to this infernal realm by villainous shenanigans, Doctor Dire still lives, and fights to free herself and her companions from eternal torment. But the odds are long, and she must struggle to glean resources, recruit Damned souls, and fend off demons and fallen angels. It's a one-way trip down, to find the center of Hell and pass out and back to Creation. But Hell's master may have other plans for Dire. 

But she is Dire, and none shall stand in her way! It's fallen angels versus ascending supervillain, in a clash that shall change Hell for all eternity!

Another excellent book!

I've really been enjoying the Dire Saga and Dire:Hell is an excellent addition to the saga! I'm excited to see what happens next, I'm going to need the author to make his own clone or AI to keep writing books since I'm enjoying so many of his series.

Daring to Take on Hell

Andrew Seiple has got to be one of the most imaginative authors around. Not too many authors would be brave enough to take on hell. While I will try not to give any spoilers beyond what reading the book synopsis would provide, you have been warned. I also assume you read the previous book. Who thinks of a way to send his characters to hell, have the book take place with scenes based on Dante's Inferno,, and then adds in a story line that makes it all make sense. Of course it also advances the Dire story-line. One has to love how no matter what happens (finding oneself in hell), Dire takes it in stride and then figures out a way to to get out. Like Andrew, Dire has no problem taking on hell as she goes through most of the circles to get to Lucifer Morningstar himself. Not the fun loving one from the TV show. Warning, it does take place in hell, and bad things happen in hell. I did find myself at times thinking, "this is kind of disturbing." It does not overly dwell on these elements and kind of makes it okay by having everything reform. This is truly impressive story telling.

Got sent to hell and kicked ass

I love this series. The writing, narration, drama, power ups and everything hits the mark perfectly. Please keep writing. I'm following everything you write.

Meh

This was my least favorite so far. We were already deep within this written universe and still had a lot of unanswered questions and unsolved problems, before the aunt nor decided to throw the literal devil into the mix. To me it all seemed unnecessary. I have a feeling we could read the next installment of this series and not remember a thing about this book and would still be fine. It read like one giant “filler”.

As for how things are progressing with the main character… I’m honestly getting tired of this k-fab “act” she puts on. Honestly if she just loses the villain looking armor or makes it look less villianous and gives the public the same clear reasoning she gives her minions and allies, then HALF her drama would go away. Honestly chick needs a better publicists! Just saying. Her methods are 90 over the top and ridiculous. Most of what she wants to do can be achieved if she went about them low key. Look at morgenstern, he is a villain, but only he knows that. Smh.

But dire…hmmm. For someone so smart, she seems to always choose the dumbest approach.

it's a very good series but

I very much enjoy this segment as much as the other ones but I am getting very annoyed by how many plot holes there are in this book.it's not a big worry if you don't care that much about them but it is quite annoying for me

seems like Andrew just ran out of material

I like how the series started... the first two books had me hooked but as by the fourth book it felt like unrealized potential... like DIRE wasn't meant to be more than a short story. Props to Andrew for taking it as far as he could. I still enjoy his writing, but this doesn't come close to his threadbare series. narration was good, but with every contrived contingency, I was less and less impressed. Leaning into K fabe and unlimited techno wizardry was a poor substitute for the character development we saw in the first two books.

In hell you can't escape science, or Dire.

If you're fearing this series is going to go all insanely Christian on you, fear not. It doesn't. Yes they are in the Christian hell. Yes a character has a crisis of faith. Yes they rail at the injustice of it all. But... it's not about religion. If you hadn't noticed by now, Dire isn't about magic or magical thinking, or greater powers. Dire met a god once and was unimpressed. So no. Dire is about Science. Even in hell you can't escape science.

This book will be a hard act to follow.

Weak writing

Andrew Seiple makes Dire the classic Mary Sue main character that never struggles and is perfect at everything. The plot is weak, and the characters are weak. I am an avid Audiobook listener and I have rarely not finished an audiobook, but I had to call it quits halfway through this book.

Was worried for the ending. was I ever wrong!

Very good end to the series imho.

The wrap up of the series and plot points make me wonder how Seiple's mind works, because damn, is it amazing!

Also maybe one of the best concepts of hell I've ever seen/heard!
