Ia trying to stay out of trouble and failing His love life is still a mess there are one too many people who have it out for him and drowning his sorrows in a nice glass of whisky won't keep the demons at bay foreverBobby's going to have to pull himself together and make a few t originally posted at saw the release of the first book The Dirty Streets of Heaven in Tad Williams new trilogy Bobby Dollar This trilogy hallmarked a new direction for Tad Williams his venture into Urban Fantasy Tad Williams is the best selling author of Memory Sorrow and Thorn Otherland and The Shadowmarch uartet and many others I have been a long time fan from his works and so far the Bobby Dollar series with The Dirty Street of Heaven and Happy Hour in Hell have been one big blast to read Where I do have to give an extra praise for is that the Bobby Dollar series is tight on schedule all three books were released with only a year in between So no hidden surprises with longer waits or anything This is how a series has to be published Ok that on the side Sleeping Late on Judgement Day is the third and final book in the trilogy You know I actually felt bad picking up this book as it would mean saying goodbye to Bobby and Sam and Caz and the mule and Eligor and a lot memorable characters I do have to say once you start be sure to strap yourself in because you will be in for one crazy wild and terrific ride with Bobby once Bobby's life so far hasn't been great In the first book The Dirty Streets of Heaven you were introduced to the Angel Doloriel or also known by the name Bobby Dollar an advocate for Heaven When someone dies he and an advocate of Hell have a short round to see whether the deceased person goes to Heaven or Hell Bobby is appointed a new case but the souls goes missing it is neither present in Heaven nor in Hell and this greatly upsets the balance of all this is just the start of a whole lot of trouble Further Bobby encounters the Countess of Cold Hands Casimira or in short Caz she is a demon being and Angel himself this brings on uite a moral challenge Bobby finds himself under suspicion and threat of not only Hell but also several high players of Heaven Happy Hour in Hell was a direct seuel to The Dirty Streets of Heaven Here Tad Williams readily explored his story further developing a better grip on the Third Way initiative and his girlfriend Caz is being kept prisoner by the Grand Duke Eligor After a lot of trouble especially with an supposedly dead psychopathic killer and the side job for the Archangel Temuel Bobby makes it out of the fiery depths of Hell but without Caz but with a lot interesting information and leads though These latter moments in the book did make me think of how the third book Sleeping Late on Judgement Day would go Again I am blown away with the story that Tad Williams writes down though I have to admit that I was expecting a different kind of story in the light and dark of it all the Bobby Dollar series couldn't have gotten a better ending or did it reallyLets get on with the story of Sleeping Late of Judgement Day Bobby's problems haven't been solved yet he didn't manage to save Caz from the clutches of the Grand Duke Eligor and he is still being looked for by some enemies that he made earlier on either on purpose or incidentally With those adventures partially behind him things do have seem to have uietened down a bit and Bobby is slowly picking up his old job again that of being an advocate but he lacks his true confidence in his job and the effort he puts in it I guess that is than normal considering that he has been to both Heaven and Hell and back As you might have come to learn from Bobby's character is that he isn't shy of a drink and soon runs into a person Walter who he met back in Hell Walter had important information for Bobby which he forgot all he knows was that it was connect to some high persons up in heaven Now Booby finds himself back on track well actually he never lost track of his ultimate goal of finding Caz back but he is once again determined just find out what in Heaven excuse the pun is going on New leads bring him back in contact with a couple of ian women and Neo Nazis where the latter aren't making things any easier for him to say the least For Bobby it's now sink or swim eat or be eaten kill or be killed the hunter or the hunted are there any Since all of his older friend are abondoning him he has to make new ones or rely on himself The part above only describes the first part of the story as Tad Williams slowly build up the story of Sleeping Late on Judgement Day all along the way the story is picking up pace I don't want to spoil the ending but it is as I mentioned already something uite unexpected it wasn't the action packed guns shooting angels with fiery swords and gigantic demon showdown at all Trust me when I say that there is still a lot of action taking place mainly so due to the ian women but this all happens at a 75 85% mark of the book after this there is a big big BIG revealing that This is exactly what the book need to make it stand out above many others introducing such a thing in the end put a smile on my face and reminds my why Tad Williams is one of my favorite authors he always has a trick up his sleeve to keep the story excited It is that time again that I have to rave about how a awesome a character Bobby Dollar is From the first introduction I think I fell in love with him His whole attitude of how he stands and thinks about in the world is just I don't even know how to put it in to words He is an advocate with an important job for those souls he has to argue for and in his jobs he is perhaps serious but when he is off of it Tad Williams paints his character with some funny and humorous personality traits and a great air of non chalance Bobby Dollar when he was doing his thing before all the stuff that went down with the Third Way initiative one lazy bastard who would rather sit around and watch than have that proactive attitude Though this might place him in a certain category of person with some of these vices not all for the better when it comes down to his friends and the people he cares about he is all virtuous and in dangerous situations he always places himself in front of the others to make sure they stay unharmed This might all seem contradictive but well perhaps Bobby is one like that one who doesn't really know what to do and what he wants except for Caz which he wants badly As for the other characters of the series like Caz Sam and Temuel I love them as well I already said in the review of Happy Hour in Hell Bobby Dollar is a pronounced voice but he doesn't completely steal the show Many of the secondary characters are shown just as powerful they come uite near Bobby to be honest The story does still revolve around Bobby and that the higher forces are hunting him if you take Sam and Temuel for example they are crucial to the storyline and looking back over not only the story in Sleeping Late on Judgement Day but also on the whole story of the series several things fall nicely into place when you read the ending of the series I still have a smile on my face when it comes down to Sam's character and his God glove how cool it that Also I actually thought Temuel to be a bit of an asshole though he did have some funny scenes together with Bobby when I read his ulterior motives I can actually only sympathize for him Caz takes once again a role in the background and you only see her short communication with Bobby wherein you see both parties having a tough time dealing with their separation but luckily for Caz Bobby has some perseverance Once again Tad Williams has written up some great characters that you can only feel for and grow attached to as you read along in the series He goes against the normally seen themes and characteristics in Urban Fantasy and carves out his own ones Good stuff Though I expected a different type of story in Sleeping Late on Judgement Day as I explained above but no worries there Tad Williams still went above Heaven and through Hell to deliver one final explosive and grande plot twist that will leave you with an echoing WOW Trust me you won't see this one coming It takes skill to write the story features in Sleeping Late in Judgement Dayas the action takes places at the 34 mark of the book but this is followed by how everything fit together with the Third Way initiative Tad Williams keeps up the lively and entertaining persona of Bobby

    First impressionI love itOnly downside It does not seem finished yet as there are several unsolved uestions I also have the feeling that there was not enough time to find out enough about the characters I would love to hear about Clarence sorry Harrison or Caz or Eligor the Horseman And Sam of course The good thing about this is that I may hope for another Bobby Dollar novel


  2. says:

    45 StarsThis is a darker version of the series There are bigger and scarier things at play and our Angel hero Bobby is really down on his luck This one takes place right after the last book and even though he survived Hell things are not going well for the Man I love this series It is simply a blast to read I love the dark and dirty style that Williams has made even when Angels and Heaven are the main subjectI am a huge fan of all things Tad Williams and his Urban Fantasy is just as good as his amazing epic fantasy writingHighly recommended

    This is Urban Fantasy While that is not my 'go to' genre I've read some pretty amazing books that fall nicely into this genre So for the most part I liked this one I don't know whether to go with 3 or 4 stars I liked the world building I liked the characters And I liked the main story It was a solid 3 stars in the beginning but by the end I was completely pulled in it just took me a while for that to happenAnother thing is that some of the characters shared too many similar traits especially where dialogue and language were concerned There were just too many shared ualities So 3 stars for now

    This is the final book in the Bobby Dollar series And I am sad to see it end as this was a great series Tad Williams outdid himself with the twists and turns and bumps in the plot Even though he handed you enough answers in each of the books to keep you happy you still were chomping at the bit to learn and to figure out who was the bad guyWhat angel was on the lam from God Could Bobby save the day and get his girl? Or were they destined to live apart serving opposite bosses and pretending nothing was missing? And can the 'Third option' of an afterlife be open for everyone or can it even continue as is? Would God let it?

    With urban fantasy being the biggest game in town I was uite happy with the fact that the Bobby Dollar books turned out to be Tad Williams' most accessible series to date Still as entertaining as the novels turned out to be it appears that they were mostly ignored by the wider urban fantasyparanormal romance readership None of the installments received blurbs from bestselling or well known urban fantasy authors and there has been a near total radio silence regarding the series on various SFF resources To all ends and purposes it seems that only Tad Williams' fans gave this series a shot and no one else Given the popularity of this subgenre I find this oddAnd Tad Williams brings this trilogy to a close with the same snarky style and aplomb which have made the first two volumes such enjoyable reads Though it leaves the door open for to come Sleeping Late on Judgement Day is a fitting and satisfying ending to a uality seriesHere's the blurbWhere 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 rescueForced 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 trustTurns 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 soulSleeping Late on Judgement Day is the third installment of Tad Williams’ urban fantasy Bobby Dollar seriesThe worldbuilding in the previous two volumes was uite interesting Williams' depiction of Heaven in The Dirty Streets of Heaven was intriguing but his depiction of Hell in Happy Hour in Hell was a bit over the top When the author's imagination runs wild and go wherever his inspiration takes him unexpected things tend to happen With the groundwork laid down and the plotlines established the worldbuilding aspect doesn't play as important a role in this final volume Which allows the author's storytelling skills to shinePace was an issue in the second book as Williams occasionally put the plot aside to explore some weird and uirky corners of Hell Not so with Sleeping Late on Judgement Day The storylines keep moving forward heading toward a final confrontation The rhythm remains crisp and like The Dirty Streets of Heaven this one is pretty much a page turner from beginning to endThe first person narrative of Angel Doloriel also known as Bobby Dollar makes for another fun filled ride Actually it's probably my favorite facet of this series Not always the sharpest tool in the shed a lovesick Bobby becomes an even bigger dumbass from time to time But for all his faults it's impossible not to root for the poor guy Once a number of familiar faces return in this third volume and new characters make the supporting cast even stronger The addition of the Ukrainian s was hilarious and made for some priceless moments with BobbySleeping Late on Judgement Day is a relatively fast paced affair and each chapter brings the reader closer to the final showdown Problem is the ending doesn't offer much in terms of resolution Tad Williams wanted to keep the door open for possible seuels this goes without saying A number of loose ends do get tied up mind you offering a resolution of sorts And yet as far as the main story arc is concerned answers to many of the most sought after uestions are not revealed The Good vs Evil love affair was so clichéd that I was persuaded Tad Williams had something unanticipated in mind in store for us Otherwise that plotline was just way too easy and the author has never been known for taking the path of least resistance Well I'm glad to report that Williams didn't go for the sugarcoated All is well that ends well sort of endingOverall Sleeping Late on Judgement Day is another fun and entertaining read Although some will likely find the lack of resolution off putting this final volume remains a fine conclusion to what has been a cool series filled with captivating concepts and engaging protagonists And it's Tad Williams' most accessible work thus farFor reviews wwwfantasyhotlistblogspotcom

    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 This was among so many other things a long distance love story and it was sweet as hell

    Fun ending to a fun series I was surprised that I liked the series that much considering I didn't really enjoy most urban fantasy that I tried in the last year or twoAs far as the series goes I found books 1 and 3 somewhat better than book 2

    Maybe you have to read the first two books to understand how a barely functional angel somehow stumbles onto a conspiracy that God and the Heavenly Host have completely missed Read it if you like heavenly scenarios that fit your jaded view of humanity and the afterlife
