He lives to kill monsters. He keeps his city safe. And his silver hollow-points and back-from-the-dead abilities help him take out any kind of supernatural threat. But now an immortal evil has this bad-ass bounty hunter dead in its sights....
Ever since a monster murdered his family, Deacon Chalk hunts any creature that preys on the innocent. So when a pretty vampire girl "hires" him to eliminate a fellow slayer, Deacon goes to warn him - and barely escapes a vampire ambush. Now he's got a way-inexperienced newbie hunter to protect and everything from bloodsuckers to cursed immortals on his trail. There's also a malevolent force controlling the living and the undead, hell-bent on turning Deacon's greatest loss into the one weapon that could destroy him.

I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
Blood and bullets.
Deacon as the whole series comes from his view everyone else doesn't get a great deal of attention.
Mr. beaver is good at voicing a tough guy. Some of the dialog was awkward, but that was the writing not the voice action.
Vampires! Guns! Merica!
Good book. Fast and fun but not very deep. This series definitely has potential. The novel equivalent of a beer commercial with vampires. If you want a tough, action oriented book you could do a lot worse than this one.
I was irrationally happy when I read that Jim Beaver -- Bobby Singer on Supernatural among other great roles -- would be narrating the Deacon Chalk books. I love the Bobby character, and I could totally hear Jim's voice as Deacon. I wasn't disappointed; it's perfect. There's not a big range of voices for the other characters, but since I had read the books before listening, I could follow. At the time of writing, only the first novella and first book are available, but I'll be watching for the others for sure. Kudos to whoever chose Jim for the voice, and thanks Jim for doing the reading! :)
I commute about 3 hours a day so I go through ALOT of books! I prefer stories that take me away from reality... what does that say about me
Riveting from the beginning!
Deacon and the Father
When "Night Blade" and Deacon were fighting together
Really good series!
Everything. The book dark, gripping and fun. Serious I know it's a contradiction but this is the darkest book I've read that at the same time gripping and fun.
Spoilers but there is a famous biblical character and his weapon that used in the most creative way ever to establish the vampire myth. In thousands of years of the character being around in the public doman I'm shocked no one done it before, it shows how creative the author is.
I listened to That Thing at the Zoo which is a prequel to this story. Start here though even though that's a fine story in its own right.
I had to take a break for work in sleep but otherwise it was all one sitting. This was a good one.
I buy many audible novels each year and if I'm lucky there will be three writers that stand out and I become a fan for life. For 2017 Tuck is on that list.
Here you have a fast paced thrill ride with tough guy Dean Chalk. This is a man haunted by the death of his family and hell bent on destroying the supernatural forces responsible for
taking their lives.
Jim Butcher does an amazing job bringing this story to life. He is Decan and we are on board for an amazingly good time. starting book 2 now.
Deacon's snarky comments make this a fun listen.
Jim's gravely southern voice was a perfect match for Deacon.
I'm so good looking, look at all my tats. look at my muscles'.
This had an interesting story line, I just couldn't stomach listening to him tell me over and
over about his great body. his tattoos . what a bass ass he is.
It just got really boring.
Then this very old and powerful vampier just lets everyone go so she can explore him
I got the book, because it reminded me of one of my favorite series, Monster Hunter International, by Larry Correia. Unfortunately, it turned out to be little more than fan fiction for Supernatural
