This was just plain fun. There is something here that hooked me. It was dark, and full of sarcasm.

Also, there was one VERY long and protracted Latin section I could have done without. But as for the story and the characters, all top-notch and I will be digging in to this series in the very near future.
The narrator (James Foster) gave it a real "old-timey" hard-boiled detective sound and feel that really added to the mood. It made me want to find more of his work.

The Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter series, is still going strong in Hell on Heels, the third title in the series. Harker and Detective Flynn have had ch..Show More »anges in their relationship, a very slow building of trust and possibly a hint of friendship. Quincy’s language and attitude both remain foul, especially before, during and after any breath he takes.
The entity Quincy is fighting in this book is Renfield. Not that Renfield, the original. This is one of his successors. When you are Count Dracula, you do not have to remember servants names. You just call them all by their predecessors name. Makes life easier. Unfortunately one of the previous Renfield was disturbed, more than bug eating disturbed and has come back to seek revenge on the Count, or as Harker calls his, Uncle Luke. Disturbed Renfield has no problem with killing present Reinfeld to get his revenge on his former employer. Harker and Flynn are working together to help Dracula. With that the story is off and running and like others has great action and pacing.
When I wrote my review of the Kindle version of Hell on Heels, I stated, “The only way this book could have been any better is if it had been an audiobook read by James Foster.” And I was right. I enjoyed reading the book but listening to it narrated by James Foster is the difference between smelling chocolate cookies and eating them. His narration of the Quincy Harker series takes a two dimensional page and makes it three dimensional. He breathes life into the characters on the pages.
I received a free copy of the audiobook in exchange for a fair review.
only scratched the surface of the crazy adventures
Qunicy Harker, everyones favorite half vampire, magic wielding, demon hunting, homeland security agent, is back for another tale. My first impression ..Show More »was how different the cover artwork is for this fourth novella is compared to the rest of thee series. Going into this I was really hoping that the snarkiness and overall feel of the story is not different.
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. The reoccurring characters, Quincy, Smith, Flynn, all continue to evolve with more and more being revealed. I was surprised at how little his Uncle was in this one. Not complaining because all I want Harker, Flynn and their banter, with an occasional interruption from Smith and their banter.
Hell Freezes Over does indeed have a slightly different feel. Don’t get excited, I do not mean this in a bad way. Here we have a series that is starting to grow up a little, yes just a little. What I mean is Hartness isn’t focusing on the crass humor to carry anything in the story. While it is there, and I do enjoy it, just not as in your face.
Hartness was able to expand on the paranormal world that lays just on fringes of the mortal world. I really think that he has only scratched the surface of the crazy adventures that Harker will find himself.
I continue to see great things on the horizon for this series and wonder how long Hartness can keep it going with a fresh new story each time.
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.

Being a massive fan of this series since book 1, I was thrilled to be able to listen to this one, which I received from the narrator, for free, via Au..Show More »diobook boom (This in NO way affected or influenced my thoughts.). In this edition we get to learn how Harker gets together with Glory, which I loved learning about because I was always curious to see when she first appeared to him. This one also deals with Harker trying to find out who is murdering Nephilim and why.
It's hard to expand on the plot anymore because being a novella I could inadvertently spoil either this book or previous books, suffice it to say that this book rocked!! Every single story in this series has been fast paced, well written and addicting. This one being no different. The author has really created an amazing world, but it's not even the world that makes this series so good, it's the characters!
Once again, I find myself being dragged into Harkers life and not wanting to leave. He is such a snarky, foul mouthed, lovable hero and one you can't help but love!! His parents are Jonathon and Mina Harker and his uncle is non other than Dracula!!! That alone should make you want to rush out to read these books. Even with this being #5, we are still trying to figure out what he is exactly!
Anyway, this book, and indeed the series, is amazing!! It's something I think would make for an great TV series ;) ;) Love these books and I can't recommend them enough.
As always, James Foster delivered a flawless performance. He is Harker and really brings him to life!! Not once, in all the books I've listened to that were narrated by him, has he failed to deliver anything other than a brilliant experience. He is so easy to listen to and seems to enjoy these books, which just makes the listening experience that much better!! Highly, highly recommend this narrator, and this series.
Being book 7, I'm not going to go into too much depth about the plot because I could inadvertently spoil something from previous books, all I'll say i..Show More »s that the plot is, once again, well written and developed. Despite trying to lie low, trouble finds Quincy in the form of a werewrolf, a demon fighting witch and a plain old demon who is infusing the local football team with extra abilities. Meanwhile, Rebecca is trying to clear Quincy's name with the help of Uncle Luke, Gabby, and a new character who has ties to someone named Watson ;)
Each book we are introduced to both new and old characters, and along with the wit of the books, it's among the reasons why I love this series so much. Each of the characters bring something special to the overall feel of the book and are all extremely well written and developed. Quincy has firmly cemented himself into my favourites and will remain there. He is such an amazing character and I never tire of his snakiness and attitude!
This series is so good and deserves to be more widely known. It has a bit of everything and are guaranteed to entertain you. I urge you to try the first book, but be aware that once you start, it will be impossible to finish!!!
James Foster can't read these books any better. I've said it multiple times that he is Quincy and nails it every time. He is so easy to listen to and has Quincy's snarky attitude down perfectly. Honestly, this is a narrator to try!! He is amazing.
