Books 1-12, Years 1-3 What the ever loving F

It was a great deal to get four novellas in each Quincy Harker book, with each book covering a year. This omnibus doesn’t just double down. This omnibus triple downs, combines the first three books for a total of twelve novellas. Nearly 40 hours for one credit. Worth it! The slight oddity is that the series arc runs through a fourth book/year containing four more novellas. Given that book four is available, why not provide the complete collection?
If you like Joss Whedon, and especially the Buffy vibe, then you’ll love this series... if the hero were Spike instead of Buffy, and Spike was more Deadpool than Angel.

The author’s weakness is subtlety and development, resulting in some “where the heck did that plot point come from” moments that hit like I was ambushed by a two by four. I also didn’t realize some characters were black (I got so much more out of Jo and momma Cass’ interaction once I figured them out) or even that Quincy looked like late 20s, early 30s until hours into each character’s introduction. That’s where spending time on the settings, character development, or maybe some interludes off the main path would have added to the story. But, I didn’t get this for my deep development, I got it because it’s a pulpy, irreverent, bonkers twist on the vampire, Frankenstein, good vs evil monster-mash genre. The writing style ensures nonstop action, machine gunning from scene to scene, and wisecrack to wisecrack.

The narrator’s performance of Quincy is fantastic (even if the voice sounds like it belongs to a middle aged man, not a 120 year old in a 27 year old body). His female voices tend to blend together, but that is easily forgiven with his other strengths.
I had a gas listening to this omnibus, and am off to the final book, Year 4, novellas 13-16.

Amazing

Hartness is a master of urban fantasy and it really comes through in the Quincy Harker series. The world building is cool, all the rules make sense and the characters are great. The story is compelling and I can’t wait for my next audible credit to find out what happens next. Additionally, James Anderson Foster has to be one of the best narrators I’ve ever heard. He’s right up there with James Marsters (Dresden files, played Spike on Buffy, various other tv and movie roles). If you like urban fantasy, fun foul-mouthed characters, and great pop culture references this is definitely the series for you.

This is a pretty good book, but I just got tired of listening to it.
