Hellhole is a planet that suffered a devastating asteroid strike resulting in massive destruction to its ecosystem and death of its intelligent indigenous population. Its weather is violent and extremely dangerous, but it is still being used as a settlement planet, mainly for disaffected and/or dangerous people. One of the people sentenced to life on Hellhole is General Adolphus, leader of an unsuccessful rebellion against the current ruler of human interstellar government, Diadem Michella Duchenet. Along with several of his fellow rebels, Adolphus and company are given a second chance at life, landed with minimal supplies and sabotaged equipment. No one thought they would manage to survive. But they did, with the help of an underground of sympathizers. And now General Adolphus is putting together a new force, planning once again to wrest control from a ruthless and corrupt regime.
This was an OK read. It is very long and I didn't know it was just the first in a new series so the end of the book is just the beginning of the series, which I didn't like. If I had known that's what it was, I would not have purchased the book. Looking at the cover and the blurbs inside, nowhere does it say it is book 1 of a triology or series or whatever it is. Anyways, I found it kind of boring and I will not be reading any more of this series.
