    "Dracula legend continues in spectacular fashion"

    Wonderfully written and read. I already have the last two novellas but was very excited to fill in the back story with the 1st two. Great characters, great plot twists, good blend of modern, magic, legend, battle and blood. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review

    Story
    "I have a weakness for Quincy Harker"

    At first glance and after the first few minutes of listening I thought this series was going to be very similar in nature to the Sandman Slim series. Well, really the only thing similar here was the voice choice of the narrator James Foster.

    Quincy Harker is the nephew of Count Dracula, yes, the Count Dracula. Half vampire himself and has been alive for almost two centuries. In this time he has taken up the profession of demon hunter. Because of his lineage Harker has special abilities; such as super strength and speed, an aptitude with magic, a sharp mind and remarkable talent for pissing off the cops.

    Raising Hell – Gives a great introduction to Harker and other interesting characters. We are introduced to Harker while he is performing a home exorcism. This leads him to a college fraternity and ultimately to a very powerful black magic sorcerer. That’s all you get from me about the plot. Because it is so short anything more would be a spoiler.

    Straight to Hell – Now Harker works for the Department of Homeland Security Paranormal Division alongside his former nemesis, detective…. Not sure how this came about but very fitting indeed. Now Harker has a team of professional behind him and the backing of the government for jurisdiction. The only problem is now he has to take orders from someone.

    Hell on Heels – In this installment, there is a new, err, old vampire in Quincy’s town. Uncle Luke will not stand for this. Especially because this vampire in town is a Renfield and a former servant who has found a way to become immortal. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a new vampire hunter in town too. The fight scenes are very well choreographed.

    Hell Freezes Over – Harker has faced a variety of different foes in the previous stories, so I couldn’t think of what could possibly be next. Let me just say this. Somebody makes a deal with a devil and there are not any winners and angels have their own issues.

    Hartness has discovered that no matter how short a book or novella is, the characters matter dearly. If the characters are not interesting and dynamic. Most people will stop caring about their well-being and therefore stop listening or reading a story. Along with a semi unique story-line. That is captivating enough to keep readers/listeners guessing.

    I will be the first to admit that I have a weakness for protagonists that are belligerent and have a smart a*s attitude with dialog that is full of one liners. Made me laugh out loud several times. Like a cross between Joe Ledger and Michael Talbot.

    This has to be one of James Foster’s most dynamic performances ever! Somehow making his regular super calm and soft spoken voice into a raspy, gravely treat for the ears, for Harker. While switching back to several characterizations with his normal voice. Keeping them all distinct and easily identifiable. Clearly making Foster a great choice for this series.

    James Foster has made Harker his. Foster is Harker. Plain and simple. He has changed his “normal” storytelling voice into something that almost doesn’t sound like him. Continuing to refine his gravely undertones. Coming up with entertaining voices for the demons and such. I really don’t think that anyone else could do better. And if it wasn’t Foster telling the story it wouldn’t be Quincy Harker.

    Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator.

    "5 stars all around"

    This book was provided to me for free for Ann honest and unbiased review.

    It takes a lot for me to give 5 stars all around but this book deserves it! I didn't realize until recently that I already loved Hartness' books because I have read "the black knight chronicles". This book from Harker to all the other characters and his one liners and the narration equal a 5 star review. Totally worth a credit for this book. There's a lot I can say about this book but it was all said above by another reviewer and I don't feel like having you re read the same review.

    Happy Reading/Listening!!!

    "For your entertainment"

    I'm afraid this series is just too entertaining to turn away. I really like the story telling of the this author and he has a very effective narrator. I definitely thinks its a good series to recommend.

    "My new obsession"

    No pun intended! I was introduced to this book via a gift from the author in exchange for an unbiased review, which I gladly submit! Perhaps a great compliment is that upon the very last word of the book I immediately searched for more and highly recommend this author, this narrator, and this series! This 4-in-1 collection is monster, angel, snark, magic, and action-packed throughout the entire book. Never a dull moment! I laughed heartily at the author's wit and I have become captivated by the well-developed characters and the relationships which comprise each festively woven story. Enhancing this collection is the narrator, James Foster, who performs "Q" and the rest with perfection - though the variation from female to male characters isn't extremely distinctive, the story is written so well that I didn't get lost or distracted because of this.

    "Great story and narration."

    I loved this book and look forward to more. I suggest reading Dracula by Bram Stoker first. It is also available here on audible.com and this book ties into that one well enough that it will be nice to have for background material. This book is funny, witty, and tons of fun. The narrator is an absolutely perfect voice for Quincy Harker. Fans of urban fantasy definitely need this one in their library.

    "Like the Dresden Files, but grittier"

    Love the swearing. Highly recommend it if you're into The Dresden Files, but think that Dresden could use bigger balls. Quincy Harker sounds a little overpowered being part vampire, and a wizard, but it really works out.

    "A joy to listen to"
    What does James Foster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A wonderful performance by James foster, he draws you into the story from the very beginning. I was hooked within the first minute.


    Any additional comments?

    Quincy Harker is a demon hunter that takes no crap and swears like a motherf###er

    A great book by John G Hartness full of great characters and wonderfully read by James foster .
