Book Description

In North Carolina, It’s Just One Damned Thing After Another 
 
Three years after Hell sets up an outpost in North Carolina, engineer Jack Halloran doesn’t find it unusual that the devil-plagued state is where he gets to work at his dream job, building a real space drive. Living in North Carolina has its own peculiar challenges, but the company he works for is great, the project is challenging, and his boss is almost too good to be true. 
 
For Rheabeth Samuels, running a company that could give humanity the stars is the best work she’s done in a long time. And her chief engineer has started to become more that just a prized employee. 
 
But plagued by gargoyles, gremlins, unreliable funding, and a devilish P.I. hired by Hell’s worst clients, Jack and Rhea are racing for the heavens against a ticking clock...and they can only hope to touch the stars if they reach for them together.

About the Author

HOLLY LISLE has been doing the pro novelist gig since 1992. Prior to that, she was a newspaper ad rep, a sign-painter/commercial artist, the “window girl” at a McDonald’s, a guitar teacher for absolute beginners, a singer at local restaurants, and because all of those together paid starvation wages, she went to nursing school the next year, and two years later was an RN. For ten years. She paid off her student loan the same year she got her first three-book contract, and...well...she’s been writing for her supper ever since. Thirty-some novels, a bunch of writing courses, short stories, and poetry, and one perpetually unfinished screenplay later, she’s now made the leap from commercial publishing to publishing herself. You can find her at HollyLisle.com. ---- TED NOLAN was born and reared in Columbia South Carolina.  With English teacher parents, it is not surprising that both he and his sister developed a lifelong love of books. Fascinated by science fiction from the beginning, Nolan naturally gravitated into the world of computer programming where he makes his living, and if none of his computers has yet spontaneously gained consciousness, many do seem animated by malevolent spirits. After stints in Fayetteville North Carolina and Aiken South Carolina, Nolan now divides his time between Columbia and South Carolina's Grand Strand.  He blogs on Columbia retail history at columbiaclosings.com. He suggests that if you are ever tempted to google "Ted Nolan", you ignore any result having to do with Canada or hockey.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Devils" series book 3 30 Jan. 2011
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
In the third instalment of this urban fantasy series, it has been 2 years since thousands of demons, imps, damned souls and other Hellraised were released onto the streets of North Carolina. God has just gone on holiday leaving Gabriel in charge, and a couple of Angels are making use of the change in management to break God's contract, go to Earth and try and redeem their best friend Averial who Fell with Lucifer.

During those somewhat chaotic times 2 years earlier Averial; the original Devil's Advocate who represented Lucifer during that first Misunderstanding snook away from Hell and her absence has only just been noticed. Of course Lucifer is a mite unhappy that another Fallen Angel could escape his clutches, so sends out his minions to hunt her down and return her to Hell for punishment. Running in conjunction with this is the story of Rhea and Jack, who are both working towards designing and running a manned spaceship, but time and money is a huge problem.

Like book 2, there are plenty of twists and turns to the plot that leave the reader wondering how it can all pan out; although the human identity of Averial is a no brainer, but this is revealed early on in the story. The ending however was very much unexpected and one that I didn't really enjoy. Yes the final chapter is sweet; however the Happy Ever After Ending is not conventional at all and not an outcome I anticipated or wanted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's Have More in This Series 5 Oct. 2004
By Joshua Koppel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently read the Hell books by Holly Lisle (or at least the first three). The books are concerned with the presence of the hellraised on Earth and the interplay between Heaven and Hell.

In the third book, HELL ON HIGH, the devil discovers that one of the Fallen has completely disappeared. A hellraised private eye is enlisted to track down the missing Fallen and discover how it was accomplished. Meanwhile the mere existence of the hellraised has bolstered physicists into new areas of research. Established Laws of Physics are regularly broken by the hellraised so humans should be able to do it as well. The main project is a stardrive that will enable man to reach the stars.

These books were very enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the scenes in Heaven. This is the Christian Heaven, but all the other afterlife's exist as well and God spends time in all of them. But while this made for very enjoyable reading the author(s) seemed to have no concept of omnipresence. I do recommend these books to anyone who likes a bit of light fantasy that is tied together with well-thought out premises and ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the series 7 Jun. 2009
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First, its a little disingenuous to subtitle this book "A Devil's Point Novel". Only one relatively brief sequence takes place at Devil's Point, and the fact that it happens there is barely important to the overall story. It could just as easily have happened anywhere else.

In fact its kind of a shame that this Hell's Themepark is talked about extensively in the first two books of the series, and could well be far more interesting, if ever actually written into the stories, than anything else in the first two books.

This book, however, does engage you in the story much more solidly than the first two of the series ("Sympathy for the Devil" and "The Devil and Dan Cooley"). You can start straight away with this book and not bother with the first two. I never actually cared about ANY of the characters in the first two books, they were all flat and stereo-typed. The characters in this book had more meat to them. I think there was a different co-author for this book, and possibly he was head and shoulders better than the other co-authors.

The main story was intriguing and the main bad guy was despicable. There were no real surprises in the entire book, but the story otherwise covered up for that. The one chance the authors had for a real surprise was, I thought, needlessly wasted.

Just one note of warning: As a grown up guy who likes grown up gals, there was a depiction of a homo-sexual relationship in the book that was slightly off-putting. As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "Not that there's anything wrong with that", but its just not the direction I pursue for my own entertainment. I was a little disappointed that the authors didn't really have the courage to stake out their ground about that relationship ... it ended in the most ambivalent possible way. LOL

That aside, the main story about a renegade fallen angel and her goals was interesting enough for you to give this a try.
5.0 out of 5 stars Just because we're related 25 April 2014
By Melinda E. Lisle - Published on Amazon.com

Listen, I didn't give this five stars because I'm related to the author and practicing the worst kind of nepotism. No, no, fellow reader. I gave it five stars because it is entertaining, funny, sarcastic, and thoughtful. It is a good one night read and will make you laugh out loud. It will also make you question a few things you thought you knew about religion, which is maybe the real reason it's my favorite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goes beyond fantasy to touch on the realities of life 23 Dec. 1997
By rmullen@logicon.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Being personally acquainted with Ted Nolan, the co-author of "Hell On High" prompted me to purchase this book. Expecting to read a rather bizarre fantasy purely for entertainment, I found a book intertwined with fantasy and irony. Taken as purely entertaining, the story stands alone as an interesting tale. However, one should look beyond pure entertainment. The religious and morale issues and lessons learned are passed to the reader in a sometimes humorous, occasionally serious and yet subtle manner. Upon completion of this book, the reader will undoubtedly have a greater sense of the strength of forces beyond our comprehension as mortal human beings. At the same time, a feeling of the ultimate goodness of the human spirit is both encouraging and enlightening. Holly and Ted have managed to create a blend of pure entertainment with a powerful message for those readers fortunate enough to find this book on their bookshelves.
