Product Description

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. --- From an early age, WALTER SPENCE channeled his passion for life into the dramatic and literary arts. After splitting his attentions between writing for the stage and acting on it, he felt a choice had to be made. He chose writing, which had the advantage of not requiring multiple relocations in order to practice it.   In addition to his collaboration on The Devil & Dan Cooley, he has written one novel, on momentary hiatus for future revision, titled "The Caballa", which he describes as "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, as written by Stephen King." He is currently working on his labor of love, the vampire novel "House of Shadows", the first in a projected twelve volume series tentatively titled "The Breed Wars." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Although not as good as "Sympathy for the Devil," Lisle's first book in this series, this second rendering of the presence of thousands of Hell's Damned Souls in North Carolina is still great fun (lover's of small dogs beware, though). The authors have already found a lot to poke fun at in these books, and, with the number of possibilities for other targets for their sharp wits, this promises to be a long and enjoyable series.

The Devil books by Holly Lisle are very entertaining. They are light, east to read and very humorus. Prudish people may be slightly offendedm, but it is really all in good fun. If you like the Myth series by Robert Aspin then you will like these and vice versa

HASH(0x9e843c3c) out of 5 stars Beware the Devil in Sheep's Clothing Oct. 5 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 DEVIL AND DAN COOLEY, North Carolina is still home to the hellraised. Radio DJ Dan Cooley begins a program to help the hellraised redeem themselves. Meanwhile the Devil has assigned a new head to the Earthside operations. As the hellraised get closer to arranging to run a theme park Hell's hidden agenda works its way into the North Carolina residents.

Another fine entry in the series with some very unforseen plot-twists at the end where we find out what has really been going on.
HASH(0x9e843cb4) out of 5 stars Decent, but missing something June 7 2009
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although this book had somewhat more in the nature of surprises in store for the reader than the first book of the series, it still seemed to be missing something to close the deal.

I'll have to say that at least I did feel somewhat more intrigued to get to the end of the story than I did in "Sympathy for the Devil".

I think what left me flat in this book is that the main 'active bad guy', who had been built up in conversations including Lucifer himself as being REALLY REALLY evil, just wasn't all that bad. The 'active bad guy' in the third book, with no build up at all, was actually much more evil.

Another complaint I had is that the characters in this book were very stereo-typical characers for almost the entire book. Just when they got some real meat to make them interesting, the book was over. Hint to authors: endeavor to make the characters interesting throughout the book, that's just being kind to the readers.

If you wind up reading this book, you won't curse the time you spent, but there are so many better books around that if you tried to read them all, this one wouldn't actually ever get to the top of your stack.

By Monica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is actually the only book in the Devil's Point series I have read as of yet, but I intend to get my hands on the other two as soon as humanly possible.
Parts of it are laugh-out-loud funny, and those that aren't often contain answers to theological questions, most notably why an all-loving God allows bad things to happen to good people.
I particularly enjoyed Holly Lisle's versions of Heaven and Hell, which are depicted as being run rather like corporations, complete with R&D departments, computer networks and accounting programs that keep track of souls instead of money. The one problem I have is that the corporate layout means that Satan comes across more as simply the world's worst boss then as the creator of all things evil.
