Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Jordan L. Hawk, SPECTR: Series One is now in a box set!

SPECTR: The Complete First Series contains:

  • Hunter of Demons
  • Master of Ghouls
  • Reaper of Souls
  • Eater of Lives
  • Destroyer of Worlds
  • Summoner of Storms

What happens when an exorcist falls in love with the demon he's supposed to destroy? Unregistered paranormal Caleb Jansen only wants a normal life. But when the demon-hunting spirit Gray accidentally possesses him, Caleb finds himself in a countdown for his very existence.

Hotshot federal agent John Starkweather thinks he's seen it all. But when he's called to exorcise Caleb, he finds a creature that isn't supposed to exist outside of stories. For Gray is a drakul: a vampire who drinks the blood of the demon-possessed.

If Gray can't be exorcised within 40 days, the possession will become permanent. In the meantime, the three must find a way to work together. As they hunt down demons and save the innocent, the heat between John and Caleb explodes into passion. But when divided loyalties threaten his last chance at exorcism, Caleb discovers love may come at a price higher than he'd ever imagined.

Awesome series! Not abridged in any way!

If you've never listened to or read a Jordan L. Hawk book you've been missing out!
SPECTR is no exception. I absolutely love the characters especially Caleb/Grey. The story is very well written and it just draws you in completely.

This collection is over 24 hours long total and let me just say my brain only let me sleep a few very short hours before demanding to find out what was happening. I even had it on full blast while I showered cause I couldn't put it down that long!

I heard about a review out there saying it was abridged and missing some bits. Per the author- there was a glitch when the file was first uploaded which has since been corrected. So there is nothing of the story missing.

If you enjoy a good M/M romance with a healthy dose of supernatural and mystery then this is a must buy.

Captivated...

When I first began this story, I was a bit apprehensive about whether I would enjoy this adventure or not...I should not have worried. Once I got started, I could not stop listening to this story. The writing techniques of Jordan L. Hawk and the narration of Brad Langer captured me and I could not escape (not that I wanted to). The story of Caleb, Gray, and John was phantastic!!! The paranormal has always intrigued me and this story with multiple adventures fed my need and desire for this genre. The book took two days for me to listen to, only because work, school, and life kept interrupting me! I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I am anxious to see where the main characters go from here!

NOT UNABRIDGED!!

Would you consider the audio edition of SPECTR: The Complete First Series to be better than the print version?

I do NOT consider the audio edition of SPECTR: The Complete First Series to be better than the print or ebook version because there are gaps in the audio version. I only have 4 hours left in the audio book but there have been two occassions where I thought, wait one chapter ended and the new one starts in a completely different spot?? I bought the ebook and low and behold there is missing narratives!! I don't know if perhaps there was an error in downloading, though the app did not indicate there was a problem.

Missing sections found so far:

1) Gray breaks back into RD to rescue John, one minute he's will John the next he's outside fighting werewolves. The audio verion is missing the fight and run in between - and it's very obvious. You go from John and Gray in the hallway to Gray fighting a werewolf.

2) What happens between Sean throwing garlic in Gray's face and Sean and John fighting afterwards. The audio books is missing the section where Sean runs out and tries to explain to John that he thought Gray was coming to get him, as in kill him.

I almost want my money back, I NEVER buy abridged books.

If this is what I noticed on first listen I hate to see what I find when I listen and read together.

What other book might you compare SPECTR: The Complete First Series to and why?

I think this books is similar in action/drama to A.E. Via and the Nothing Special series without the paranormalAbigail Rous and Madeleine Urban the Cut & Run Series, again not paranormalMary Calmes Change of Heart Series (slighly less action is some with more angst)Mary Calmes A Matter of Time Series (no paranormal with a bit more comedy)Megan Derr Dance with the Devil Series

Which scene was your favorite?

"Mortal Nonsense"

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book is a volume that is 24 hours long. Pulling an all nighter isn't really possible.

Any additional comments?

This is an amazing series!! I'm SO glad I spent a credit on this by chance. I've found a new favorite author!!!

Glitch fixed! Yes, it is unabridged.

What did you love best about SPECTR: The Complete First Series?

I love everything! The story, the monsters, GRAY! Gray made me ugly cry in the best way, and laugh too.

What does Brad Langer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His Gray voice is perfect

Any additional comments?

Apparently there was some glitch in the audio when it was first released but that has been fixed now. I've listened several times and I've not noticed anything wrong or missing or incomplete.

Great story, not-so-great narrator

I was very excited that the whole first volume omnibus was also released this way in audiobook, as I had the first book in Kindle format. John, Caleb, and Gray are definitely engaging characters, with Gray bringing a lot of comic relief at times. The chemistry between the characters is HOT HOT HOT. If you like paranormal gay romances with plenty of badassery, I highly recommend this story.

As much as I loved the story, the narrator annoyed me. The story takes place in Charleston, SC and the characters are Southern, but the narrator has an obvious East coast accent, even while reading John's amd Caleb's dialog. Also, other than Gray, all of the other characters sound exactly the same. I realize this is probably just me nitpicking, but it annoys me nonetheless.

One minor technical glitch I had was that I lost part of a couple of chapters. For some reason, a few minutes of two of the chapters just cuts off. I tried to re-download but this didn't fix it. I don't feel like I lost any terribly crucial moments, but this is also a little annoying.

Overall, though, this was definitely worth one of my credits.

SO GOOD!!!!

What an entertaining ride this whole first series was!!!! I absolutely LOVED it! All three of these characters Gray, John and Caleb learned so much from each other 🤗 trust, humanity, love and also skepticism from John relating to spectr.

The banter between Gray and Caleb had me cracking up so much 🤣 and the chemistry between the three of them was off the charts HOT!!!!
Tiffany annoyed me at first but she grew on me, she was just a big bad ass with an attitude😏😚
I'm so happy I read/listened to this on audio (excellent job to the narrator Brad Langer)and I will look forward to a continuation of this series😍

Better than expected

It took me 3 days 2 complete but in the end this series was/ is one of the best I've listened to. It had all the elements I love in a story...A great Sy Fy element ,along with a little mystery, a little humor, and awesome characters! I'll be listening to more from this author and hopefully the narrator too!

Love love love

I like the narrator, he has a great voice, just maybe not convincing for this exact set of characters. Other than that, I love this set of stories, the plot and characters and paranormal-ness just pull you under and drag you along. Completely willingly. For the money, this is definitely the best way to purchase this series, all in one go, and I'll wait til the whole second series it out to purchase them as a set, too, if for no other reason than I CAN't HANDLE the cliff hangers at the end of nearly every installment.

was this ripped from my head?

The story was perfect, but the narrator was hard to listen to. I've always wanted something from two souls in one body, but until this point I had never quite been able to put into words what I wanted. this story fit it perfectly.

Brings Gray to Life

The narrator has an accent--a New Yorker, I think, but it doesn't really get in the way. Voices are varied from character to character and consistent within a character. More than anything else, he brings to life the entity inhabiting Caleb. It makes listening to the book better than reading it, and I don't think I have ever said that of an audio book before.

I wish I had time to listen straight through

Would you listen to SPECTR: The Complete First Series again? Why?

I could listen to this book time after time. The narrator had such a good voice and it matched well with the great story Jordan wrote.

Engaging and addictive read

Really enjoyed this series and a complete BARGAIN to get nearly 25 hours for 1 credit. Bought into the premise, world and characters and listened to the lot in two days. Good balance of action, relationship development, ‘will they/won’t they’, sex scenes and enough angst to make it interesting without being even close to too much. You really root for all three main characters. Great to have a book based on gay characters that competes with, and is better than, many straight paranormal romance books out there.

I didn’t give 5 stars because I reserve that score for the mind blowingly exceptional books. This was undoubtedly a great read though - and in a league of its own with how great it is within the gay literature genre.

Don’t know why I didn’t purchase it earlier ..maybe the cover put me off? Looks a bit like all the awful soft porn books about aliens abducting a woman and them being destined mates ..groannnn. No problem with erotic books, or aliens, but so many of them are badly done. However, the cover makes more sense now I’ve listened to the book and I see it differently.

Spectacularly Awesome!

What did you like most about SPECTR: The Complete First Series?

This has probably jumped straight into first place as my favourite audio book. For a start it's the complete first series which makes it loooooong and therefore a bargain. I really got into the story there was an awful lot of plot and story the focus wasn't entirely on a relationship. The cast of characters was great you were never that sure who was good and who was evil. For a paranormal story I found myself very easily absorbed into the world, it didn't have or need any long winded introductions to things. There were also many points where I found myself laughing, which as I listen in public gets me funny looks :-)

What other book might you compare SPECTR: The Complete First Series to, and why?

I don't know I can compare it to any other book, that's why it's so fab!

What about Brad Langer’s performance did you like?

Brad Langer was a new narrator for me and I loved him. The way he voiced Grey, the Drakul, especially when he was still disembodied sent chills down my spine. You always knew who was talking even if it didn't say. I'm going to see what other titles he has recorded

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes this book made me laugh on several occasions, out loud, usually when Grey piped up to complain about some mortal nonsense.

Any additional comments?

The visuals you get from this book are fantastic, sometimes I felt I must have seen it on TV as it was all so clear in my head
