Publisher's Summary

When he came home, so did they... 

Driven by vengeance, Michael Alexander enlisted in the Army the day after 9/11. Five years later, disillusioned and broken by the horrors he witnessed in Afghanistan, Michael returns home to Georgia seeking to begin a new life. But he didn't come alone. Something evil followed him, and it's leaving a path of destruction in its wake. 

The police are powerless. The Army has written Michael off. Left to face down a malevolent creature first encountered in the mountains of Afghanistan, he'll rely on his training, a homeless prophet, and estranged family members from a love lost... 

But none of them expected the dragon. 

Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden collides with Larry Correia's Monster Hunter International in this supernatural thriller that goes straight to Hell!

Wow! Very good new series.

OK, since admitting it is half the problem, here it is....I am an urban fantasy snob. There are only a few authors that I enjoy from cover to cover and from book one through book 15 (or so on); and even those I find myself nit picking from time to time. When I was given this book for free for my honest review I didn't listen right away since I was listening to an entire series over again since the last book had just came out. BIG mistake, this book was amazing. I really liked how this series started. Most urban fantasy series the main character is part of the fantasy from page one, not this book. I loved how his main character was a normal everyday person and thrown into the supernatural. How he dealt with his new reality was well done. There are new twists on the paranormal villains which can be refreshing if you read a lot of fantasy and horror. The narrator was just OK, his accents and his female characters weren't as good as I would have liked; but he wasn't hard to listen to or make the book a chore to get through.

No laughs here...

Where to begin. The narration was solid and enjoyable, but a bit too slow for my taste. Quick fix there and I was able to adjust the speed, so no big deal. That said, the voices were different and conveyed emotion. Good stuff. Now, on to the story. I liked the overall story that mixed horror and monster hunting into a nice urban fantasy mix. I would have liked a little more character development and investment in the plot. At 8 hours, this is an average length audio book. That said, if the same story was expanded on a bit, I believe it would have been more immersing...draw me a picture. I like to get a picture in my head of the surroundings as well as the characters, and it was difficult to do with this book because descriptions were kept pretty short. Granted, this is just my personal taste and others might like the straight forward story telling without the bling. I would buy the 2nd book in the series, and recommend this book. Not a masterpiece, but it does what it sets out to do. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really liked this one

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I found I rather quite enjoyed this book. I thought the story, world/character building was well done. The narration, too, was rather good. I will definitely look for more in this series.

Fantastic narration

I was provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator.

War Demon was such a mind trip. This audiobook had me on the edge of my seat in anticipation and nonstop action. The story is very interesting and a little creepy as it deals with demons. There are lots of characters that I really enjoyed and the action is descriptive and exciting.

Scott Allen did a great job voicing the numerous characters in this book and making so the listener doesn't get confused. He also did a great job with the accents as well. I will definitely be listening to more books he narrates.

This was a very good story that I really enjoyed and I would even go back and read it as well. The narration was great and made this book as exciting and creepy as it's meant to be.

A fantastic audiobook

First and foremost - the performance by Scott Allen was superb!
His ability to voice identifiably different characters is fantastic, it really helps with keeping track especially when there is a lot of action!
Mr Allen can legitimately do the voices of varying age groups, genders and regional accents - I!love that! It makes a huge difference and feel so fake and detract from a story when done wrong, but in this book it’s done so well!!

It’s a great story, many twists and creative new takes on mythology and lore, great action, intrigue and suspense - a great supernatural thrill ride

It's alright

OK, this is a hard one to review. At times I could not decide if the author needed to tweak the next release or the narrator needed to tweak his performance. For the most part I enjoyed the narrator, felt he did well with his characters. The book keep me interested to the end, but did lose me occasionally. I enjoyed the lighter side of the characters, among all the fighting, vampires, demons and death some humor is always a plus. I did feel that Michael's character was a little overdone on the anger towards the end, especially when he started off more mature in the beginning. I do know that when good vs evil is the main story line, religion is usually a part of that. I don't mind that at all, but I felt it was overplayed. Overall, I would probably pick up the next one. I know it's hard to get a new series started. For me, if I'm on the line of good or bad, I'll give them 2 books, if better I'll continue.
This book was given to me for free at my request and that I provide this honest voluntary review, I do so without reading other reviews in order to form my own opinion, Thank you, for the opportunity to do so.

Awesome narrator, so-so book.

This is an unfortunate case of an amazing narrator taking on a mediocre (at best) book.

I've said it before, the simple fact is Scott Allen is easily one of the best narrators out there. Despite being relatively new to the game, he is easily as skilled a narrator as RC Bray, Michael Kramer, Simon Vance, or Scott Brick.

The book...

Let me be clear, the concept is AWESOME. The development on the main character is good (nothing amazing, nothing unique or particularly memorable, but good), and the opening of the story is a gripping hook.

Unfortunately, it quickly deteriorates into a mindless, B-rate action story.

And then it tries to turn itself into epic fantasy in a contemporary setting but fails miserably.

My personal opinion is the story is trying to be too many things and ends up a muddy mess.

I sincerely hope that in the future the author either takes the time to properly develop a complete, immersive story, or limits his stories to a single, cohesive theme.

On a final note, I would like to congratulate the author for the martial arts snippets. It really comes through that he is a practicing martial artist himself. The martial arts focused scenes are the best written scenes in the book.
