Publisher's Summary

FBI agent Harmony Black and her team, Vigilant Lock, face a new type of threat: one from beyond the stars.

They'd always heard the Red Knight was an urban legend: in 1954, three years before Sputnik launched, a mysterious satellite was sighted circling Earth, though no power on the planet had such technology.

But the Red Knight is real, and what's more, it's inextricably linked to a supernatural force no one yet understands. Like a moth to a flame, this dark presence collides annually with the airborne satellite. Except this year the Red Knight is on course to crash-land...in Oregon.

Vigilant Lock sets out to find the crash site and secure the remnants before the mysterious power is drawn to Earth. But they soon discover the mission is far from straightforward - and they aren't the only ones tracking the Red Knight. To stop a deadly occult threat, Harmony and her team must use all their resources: technology and sorcery, science and magic. Fortunately, Harmony has only begun to discover her growing power.

    "Great Car Reading"

    Craig Schaefer writes a great book to listen to over several weeks of commuting. From his Faust series to this new Harmony Black series they have all been enjoyable and fun listening. Kudos sir.

    Tightly woven plot with unpredictable turns and imperfect, like able characters. Can't wait for the next one!

    "Overbearing narration"

    The premise of this book is a riff on the Black Knight satellite conspiracy theory. It's the occult version of a technothriller, and observes the usual cliches, such as untrustworthy WASPs in high places talking funny; the phrase "terminate with extreme prejudice" does in fact occur in the book.

    Couldn't tell you much more than that, since the book takes a long time to get moving, and I bailed on it before it did. The issue was the narration. Christina Traister's women aren't afraid to occupy space, and she gets a nice 1940s sass and swing, like Caity Lotz. This is a very punchy style, and unfortunately she doesn't modulate her performance very much. Most of the text gets attacked hard, even lines like "We set up camp at dusk," which is at odds with actually telling a story. Everything is emphasized, so nothing is emphasized.

    I tried four or five times to get through the book, and the punchiness defeated me. It made it too hard to follow what was going on, like a kid running around and honking a horn while you're trying to have a conversation. After a while my ears started to hurt.

    "Another good story marred by poor narrative choices"

    I prefer Schaefer’s Faust novels, but this second Harmony Black book is good and stronger than the first.

    I found myself hating Agent Temple, but when I stepped back, I realized it wasn’t her actions or even her words that were driving that response—it was her narration. Traister is generally a decent narrator, but the voice she’s chosen for the character is obnoxiously over the top, exaggerating her worst traits and transforming what should be a decent supporting role into an annoying caricature.

    "Top Notch"

    Loved it! A great story, with interesting characters, and an engaging performance. But if you haven't listened to the first book in the series, then start there.

    "I wanted this to be a better story"

    Harmonys stand alone series makes me dislike her even more than her interactions with Faust during his series. Good performance, awful book.

    Story
    "Harmony and Jessie Are Different FBI Agents"

    Harmony Black is a different kind of FBI agent. She is a key member of Vigilant Locke, an off the books kind of occult group. She is a witch and she is partnered with Jessie, a werewolf of sorts. Her love interest is Cody from Talbot Cove, Oregon, one of her saves in Book 1. The entire story of Red Knight falling is tense with lots of twists but all while seeking to save the world from a space creature that was unleashed 60 years ago. The satellite that just fell must be found and then returned to space to save the world. The shenanigans that take place between the first page and the last page will keep you on your toes and awake trying to finish the book. I listened to most of the book on audible and found it very intense. I have read all of Craig Schaefer's books and like his approach to the occult. It is believable because most of the 'creatures' look human but their paranormal skills are essential to solve the problem. This story travels all across the country and back again. Watch out for what you think you see in the stars. It might be other than just star shine.

    "Okay"

    This book was okay, not as good as the first but still enjoyable. There were a few bits that had me rolling my eyes or sighing in annoyance at the characters, but overall I would say it's decent. My real issue was the narrator. Her voice is nice enough, and in the first book I had no issues with her narration, however in this book there are several foreign characters and her accents are just awful. Her London accent was particularly painful and she clearly got it from watching to many Dick Van Dyke films as a kid.
