"It's amazing how life goes back to normal, how the world keeps spinning, even after you do something so terrible that it can never be forgiven. You get up in the morning. You eat. You shower. Shave. Use the toilet. And the dream. Always the same dream. There is no escaping it. In my dream, I plunge the knife into a little girl's chest.” - Sam Harlan
Six weeks since discovering the truth behind his family legacy, Sam Harlan has worked with Sister Callie Calahane to learn how to kill vampires, desperate to make them pay.
The woman's voice on the answering machine was intriguing. “Jack, it's Mary Kate. I've got your newest order and.... I need to talk.” Jack Harlan, the legendary vampire killer, was Sam's distant relative, but Jack Harlan was dead. Sam had seen to it himself.
Will investigating the source of the message push Sam and Sister Callie beyond their limit, or will they survive the hard times?
Hard Times is a story about a man who has suffered greatly but moves forward to protect others from blood lusting vampires. This story is a traditional dark story with multiple deaths and a hero beaten down. These are not your Twilight vampires. Good character and storyline building. The narrator, Mr. Loving, dis a nice job. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
a great fantasy book I liked this one very much the fantasy description was good the haunting skills of the hunters are a bit different from other vampire books I have read but I did liked the refreshing elements in this book

A Sam Harlan Novel, Book 2
By: Kevin Lee Swaim
Narrated by: David Loving
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This is book 2 in the series and it has spoilers so it is best if you listen/read book one first.
I really, really enjoyed this book! It is so unique and fresh for a vampire hunter book. The way he gets his strength and who is partner is...a Sister of the Church! How they kill the vampires is a bit different too. The weapons they use, silver bullets but the Sister uses her Cross a bit different! I like to find fresh and different stories and that is hard to do in a genre that is saturated. This also has great characters, wonderful dialogue, twisting plot, and heart stopping moments. My kind of vampire book.
The narrator was absolutely perfect for this book. A voice with a touch of gruff for the touch guy but it disappeared when he was using it for the many women he had to speak for. Also an elderly woman. He had to speak in a accent and it was very believable. I never stopped to think if it was an elderly woman, I believed it and continued with the story. Great actor. Wonderful story all the way around.
I would recommend this book to all fantasy fans, especially vampire fans. Start with book one, don't cheat yourself! Can't wait for the next book.
