Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Paranormal, 2016

Eleven years ago atheist Malcolm Romero met a god. Now he's a demon-hunting voodoo priest armed with a holy machete named Hounacier. After the murder of his mentor, he returns to New Orleans to catch the killer. But more is at stake when Malcolm finds himself betrayed and his holy blade stolen. Now Malcolm's only hope to save his soul and to recover Hounacier is the Valducan knight sent to kill him, Matt Hollis, the wielder of the holy revolver Dämoren.

    "Action packed and thought provoking"

    Hounacier, the second book in the Valducan series and the sequel to Seth Skorkowsky's Damoren, deals with the weilder of the demon slaying machete Hounacier, Malcolm Romero. After the murder of his mentor, the previous wielder of Hounacier, Malcolm returns to New Orleans to try and find the killer. He is instead drawn into his old life, a life filled with Loa, with voodooo priests and priestesses, where magic is real, and where a plot to have revenge against the wielders of Hounacier has Malcolms life and very soul, as well as Hounacier, in jeopardy. With a fast paced plot, exotic locations, really engaging characters and a villain that has a sympathetic reason for being that way, Mr. Skorkowsky has really taken this series to new levels, especially after the excellent work in Damoren. Any fan of Urban Fantasy should get a copy. This is as good as anything written by Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green or Tim Marquitz, who are some of my favorite urban fantasy authors. As far as narration, R.C. Bray does his usual spectacular job, breathing life into an already rich book. I anxiously await the third book.

    Story
    "R. C. Bray's Narration Is Audible Chocolate"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. I recommended Damoren (Valducan, Book 1) to several friends of mine and 2 out of 3 of them ended up preordering Hounacier as I did. The remaining friend did not, however, only becuase he can't listen to R. C. Bray narration again until he gets his diabetes under control again (it's an audible chocolate thing).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Malcolm is an absolute BOSS because he was a one man recking crew with few allies to support him


    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    Spectacular. I have no doubt R. C. Bray's narration of Hounacier will score yet another Audie nomination for Skorkowsky's Valducan series.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no spoilers


    Any additional comments?

    Keep em' coming Skorkowsky!

    "Excellent follow up read!!!"

    I thought it would be a continuation of the last book but it was a good deviation from it. This series is well written and pretty original in its lay out of an already over saturated niche.

    "On Par With Marsters' Dresden Readings."

    Bold claim, right? Seriously. Most Contemporary Supernatural is all about angsty teenagers and repressed sexual urges. Exactly NONE of that here. Very well written and read by a master voice actor.

    "Main character suffers a brutal trail by fire"

    Wow. Just when you think it can't get worse for our hero it does!!!

    But that is why this story is excellent. It all hangs together really well and it is a thrilling and imaginative ride!

    I loved Damoren and can say the same about this book as well. I'm very much hoping that more of these stories are made. Highly recommended!

    "STOP MAKING THE SUMMARY A SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!"
    If you could sum up Hounacier in three words, what would they be?

    BALLSOUT F@#$ing AWESOME!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hounacier?

    I'M NOT A SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Bray recorded the previous book Damoren and just like in Damoren he does an awesome job.

    Having read the Kindle book first I can say that though the verity of accents, tones and characters voices he is able to give the book a life that is other wise missing


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    AGAIN I'M NOT A SPOILER!!!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    What the F!@# is up with publishers/writers spoiling the either the first half or even the whole book in the summary!!!!!!! Am I the only one who is tired of reading summary and spent most of the book waiting for the summary to happen!!!!! Espacally when it is an other great twist!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!

    Ok... ok...rant over

    If you loved Damoen you will love Hounacier but keep in mind that Hounacier is much more of a hard-boiled-noir-mystery then action packed trill ride that Damoen was.

    "Hounacier!"

    This book as the second in the series had a lot to live up too after Damoren. It was not more of the same. It was its own path to travel with the return of some familiar characters. I was very happy with the feel and and the roller coaster ride the author provides. The performance was great as always. I highly recommend this audio book!
