FBI agent Harmony Black and her team, Vigilant Lock, face a new type of threat: one from beyond the stars.
They'd always heard the Red Knight was an urban legend: in 1954, three years before Sputnik launched, a mysterious satellite was sighted circling Earth, though no power on the planet had such technology.
But the Red Knight is real, and what's more, it's inextricably linked to a supernatural force no one yet understands. Like a moth to a flame, this dark presence collides annually with the airborne satellite. Except this year the Red Knight is on course to crash-land...in Oregon.
Vigilant Lock sets out to find the crash site and secure the remnants before the mysterious power is drawn to Earth. But they soon discover the mission is far from straightforward - and they aren't the only ones tracking the Red Knight. To stop a deadly occult threat, Harmony and her team must use all their resources: technology and sorcery, science and magic. Fortunately, Harmony has only begun to discover her growing power.

Craig Schaefer writes a great book to listen to over several weeks of commuting. From his Faust series to this new Harmony Black series they have all been enjoyable and fun listening. Kudos sir.
Bookstore hobby-jobber, mom, gardener and former copywriter. Eclectic taste in books and audits.
Tightly woven plot with unpredictable turns and imperfect, like able characters. Can't wait for the next one!
Harmonys stand alone series makes me dislike her even more than her interactions with Faust during his series. Good performance, awful book.
Harmony Black is a different kind of FBI agent. She is a key member of Vigilant Locke, an off the books kind of occult group. She is a witch and she is partnered with Jessie, a werewolf of sorts. Her love interest is Cody from Talbot Cove, Oregon, one of her saves in Book 1. The entire story of Red Knight falling is tense with lots of twists but all while seeking to save the world from a space creature that was unleashed 60 years ago. The satellite that just fell must be found and then returned to space to save the world. The shenanigans that take place between the first page and the last page will keep you on your toes and awake trying to finish the book. I listened to most of the book on audible and found it very intense. I have read all of Craig Schaefer's books and like his approach to the occult. It is believable because most of the 'creatures' look human but their paranormal skills are essential to solve the problem. This story travels all across the country and back again. Watch out for what you think you see in the stars. It might be other than just star shine.
Putting Characters in actual danger when they are facing insurmountable odds will actually put some spice into this blend fanfic-like series.
I hated last book, but I like the author and love the Faust Series. So I gave next book in the Harmony series a second chance, and I didn't need to do that. I will be skipping book 3 of this series and wait for main series (but if Harmony story arch is any indication of how Schaefer is going to be writing his book, I will be skipping him entirely.).
Very disticnt voices for every character, but I wish she would stop buttering up male characters like Cody (a.k.a. Harmony's wet dream).
I feel she is truly wasted on this trash of a series.
Anger and Disappointment.
In order to make inept protagonists survive and triumph through this fanfic, Schaefer has made previously enigmatic and merciless oppositions and characters go through 'ineptness patch'.
It is infuriating how main characters get away with shits by simply being main characters in the book. This books starts with Mary Sue and ends with Mary Sue.
Skip this series and hope Faust series doesn't turn out like this.
This book was okay, not as good as the first but still enjoyable. There were a few bits that had me rolling my eyes or sighing in annoyance at the characters, but overall I would say it's decent. My real issue was the narrator. Her voice is nice enough, and in the first book I had no issues with her narration, however in this book there are several foreign characters and her accents are just awful. Her London accent was particularly painful and she clearly got it from watching to many Dick Van Dyke films as a kid.
"Good but not so good accents."
Great story read at an entertaining trott but narrator has terrible command of accents imo
