"Where does an angel go when he's been to Hell and back? Renegade angel Bobby Dollar does not have an easy afterlife. After surviving the myriad gruesome dangers Hell oh-so-kindly offered him, Bobby has returned empty-handed - his demon girlfriend Casmira, the Countess of Cold Hands, is still in the clutches of Eligor, Grand Duke of Hell. Some hell of a rescue. Forced to admit his failure, Bobby ends up back at his job as an angel advocate. That is, until Walter, an old angel friend whom Bobby never thought he'd see again, shows up at the local bar. The last time he saw Walter was in Hell, when Walter had tried to warn him about one of Bobby's angel superiors. But now Walter can't remember anything, and Bobby doesn't know whom to trust. Turns out that there's corruption hidden within the higher ranks of Heaven and Hell, but the only proof Bobby has is a single feather. Before he knows it, he's in the High Hall of Heavenly Judgement - no longer a bastion for the moral high ground, if it ever was, but instead just another rigged system - on trial for his immortal soul" --… (mer)

I'm a big fan of this novel, but not for the usual reasons. Its flaws suddenly became its strengths, its air of hopelessness became a song, and the utter enormity of his drowning in the deep end was also his salvation. Not that there was that much salvation going on, of course, but the epilogue made me cry. If I can tell everyone to hold fast to the troubles this guy has gone through to the very end, I'd be telling everyone to keep hope alive in the good fight. The rewards aren't exactly spectacular, but there's enough to make me want to revisit this world over and over and over again forever. That being said, this better not be a normal trilogy despite the perfect setup of rises and falls. I want more. More More More. This was, among so many other things, a long distance love story, and it was sweet as hell. ( )

It was "ok". A mediocre, bland, offering that is rather disappointing when you consider the author's previous books/series. Bland characters, ok writing, cliched plot. The ridiculous amount of swearing in this book also got rather annoying.

There were a lot of loose ends left, hopefully this won't be the last we see of Bobby Dollar. I enjoyed listening to the story more than I was enjoying reading it.. which may not make sense but it's true. Bobby is a really engaging, enjoyable character. I'm not sure he holds the traits that an angel should hold, but he's fun regardless. ( )

This series is great fun. I really like Bobby Dollar plus he has excellent taste in music.

Book 3 of the Bobby Dollar series of novels. Bobby is back from Hell, but got absolutely nowhere despite his sacrifice. After making the ultimate road trip through Hell's nether regions and getting tortured for it, he is no further to getting his girlfriend back or solving the mystery of the '3rd realm'. With even less help from his heavenly friends, Bobby persists in solving the mystery and trying to make Hell give him back his girlfriend. Bobby is actually on trial in Heaven for his 'crimes', but the trial seems to hold off just long enough. Unfortunately, this book seems to kind of stumble to the conclusion. Bobby isn't as much of a sympathetic character in this book, though there are some new allies to help out who liven things up. ( )

I started the Bobby Dollar story by dedicating it to my friend David Pierce, who left us. Since then, I have lost a few more dear ones, and our field of science fiction/fantasy has lost quite a few as well.

Mortality is pain, but it's also perspective. We miss you all, you writers and artists and creators, and I still really miss Dave, but that's the terrible, beautiful conundrum of our lives: We can't love without someday learning about loss.
