A spine-tingling new Jeremiah Hunt supernatural thriller!
New Orleans was nearly the death of Jeremiah Hunt, between a too-close brush with the FBI and a chilling, soul-searing journey through the realm of the dead that culminated with a do-or-die confrontation with Death himself. But now Hunt is back and on the run in Watcher of the Dark. But when he performs an arcane ritual to reclaim the soul of the magically gifted, beautiful woman who once saved him, he must flee the law once again, to Los Angeles, city of angels, a temporary sanctuary. In L.A., he has to contend with Carlos Fuentes, who sees in Hunt a means to obtain the mystical key that would open the gates of Hell. Fuentes knows Hunt's weakness - his loyalty to the woman he loves, and to another "gifted" friend - and uses the real threat of torturing them as a way to get Hunt to help complete his dread quest. Hunt has learned a lot since his life was irrevocably hijacked by fate months ago. But when his friends are threatened by the supernatural predator known as the Preacher, Hunt knows that all his new-found experience and ability will go for naught unless he can keep both the Preacher and Fuentes at bay long enough for him to somehow find a way to free his friends from mortal peril.

The Jeremiah Hunt series continues to feed the need for interesting stories in the paranormal thriller genre, but also continues to miss opportunities. In this volume we see the main character, deeply wounded from the events of the previous book, caught up again in capers he'd rather be clear of, but this time alongside a new set of companions. Given the chance to shine, though, Hunt continues to barely understand his own gifts and many chances to explore and develop our sense of who and what Jeremiah is, both as a human character and as a person with paranormal gifts, are left under-explored. The story ends well, although there were some loose threads I very much wanted tied up, and I am hoping for more in the series, but I can't help but wish there had been a bit more.
Anthony Bowden continues to be a great voice for Hunt and shows great range in providing other character voices. The production quality could be a bit higher, atmospheric changes and a few background noises continue to crop up in this series.
I will eagerly pick up further volumes in this series, should the author produce them, but I will hope for some deeper development and fewer loose threads.
Anthony Bowden does a fantastic job narrating this installment of Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle. The story is not great, it's a good story with what I would call an interlude in L.A. Jeremiah is developing and becoming something of an anti-hero.
No, I know the story now, I don't tend to relisten to books like this. Looking forward to the next one though.
I like the supernatural slant and the cast of characters.
This is a really great supernatural series which has got better as its gone on. The main character was a little hard to warm to at first, but then so is Harry Dresden. The supporting characters balance him out. I want to know more about Demitri!!
Rather abruptly climaxes and seemed to lose heart toward the end. Still worth a read for fans of the series.
