Not my usual genre, but I dowloaded ""Sandman Slim" on a whim and immediately fell in love. Just finished reading the last in the series, "Aloha From Hell" and am already jonesin' for Stark. Not for the faint of heart or those looking for a fluffy romance novel. These books are dark, intense, very irreverant and profane. But the humor is clever, the hero (or anti-hero, really) is a deeply flawed creature with some amazing redeeming qualities. Kadrey has obviously done some research on the subject about which he writes. You'll find a little mainstream religion, a little Paganism, a little Greek mythology and a smattering of Milton thrown into the mix. It's a roller coaster ride. Just hang on and enjoy the ride.

Lucifer the Fallen Angel has left Hell for Heaven. His abdication fails to eliminate sin as the monotheistic churches claimed it would, but instead leaves behind an even more dangerous power struggle to sit on his former throne. Avenging Nephilim James "Sandman Slim" Stark recently killed Mason Faim the magician who exiled him to Hell where he became Lucifer's bodyguard for over a decade. Mason finds he owes his "friend" for sending him to Hell were he plans his new gig to deploy the faithful on an invasion of Heaven. Kissi the demon encourages Mason to take the war to the enemy as his evil essence has plans to take over regardless of who survives the end of days combat. Stark ponders why God remains on vacation instead of acting to prevent the war that could end the universe. He understands the Lord's free will doctrine, so expecting no divine intervention; he decides to enter Hell on a Heavenly cause; besides which he prays he can bring his murdered girlfriend back with him if he escapes to los Angeles. The third Sandman Slim urban fantasy (see Sandman Slim and Kill the Dead) is a delightful dark humorous noir starring an antihero who will persuade readers that Los Angeles is as hellish of a place as Hell is. The support cast on all sides of the conflict is developed to enhance an exhilarating violently over the top of the Tower of Babel plot. Fans will enjoy Richard Kadrey's latest contrary satirical spin with his fabulous twisting End of Days. Harriet Klausner

What a hilarious wise-ass Columbo/John Constantine cocktail. With a touch of Yosemite Sam. That Stark guy,I'm already quoting him.

The third installment of Sandman Slim closes a lot of open story threads, coming to what amounts to conclusion of Slim's mission in life. It's violence filled text, filled with exactly the right kind of humor, shoots forward at a breakneck pace. Still, for all that, it falls just a little short of the first novels, like it's trying to close threads, leave a few bits left for further adventure, but manages to sideline any real motivation on the part of Slim beyond "well, we should finish this story out..." Even with that, still a good book worth reading.

Not my favorite book of the series but still a good read

Not a bad tale, but too inconsistent. Also hard to believe that a human would oust Lucifer. Too bad the series has potential.

James aka Sandman Slim is fantastic, not boyfriend material, but a great guy to have in a fight!

A little too much recapping in some asides, which, if you jump into the series here rather than on the first book, is convenient. Some of the travels lag a bit...one or two new characters along the way seem to be underdeveloped...and a part of the climax was a little confusing/vague in the middle of it...but the five stars come in because of monumental scope, real shifts for the main characters, a breezy compelling style, a good balance of tones, and some audacious authorial choices. Being unsure repeatedly of how the hero can win is a big plus throughout the series. A few of the surprises will resonate more if you read from the first book.

Man, I am so glad o found the Sandman Slim series. I think I have BookBub to thank for that discovery. I love the character Lucifer/ Samael. There are a lot of great characters aside from the main character. The stories are great and totally keep my attention. I don't think I have been so excited to keep reading a story in a long time. I also like the sarcastic hardboiled detective angle. I also totally dig all of the real life references the author makes. I really like discovering new songs, authors, events, and generally cool things referenced by the author. I kind of feel like reading Sandman slim is also a scavenger hunt for cool references. I love thai series so much that after reading the 2nd in the series I bought the remaining books in the series just so I could go straight from one book/story to the next. Please, Richard Kadrey, keep making more books/stories in this series. I woild even like to see a few spinoff books delving deeping into slme of the more interesting characters. Thank you for creating such a great and entertaining world!

Aloha from Hell is a pretty well written book has a few twist and turns in it but I would have enjoyed it more if it had less "dirty" words in it.
