Publisher's Summary

Legions of murderous undead, Haitian voodoo, and a 5,000-year-old serpent god.

Yeah, 'cause that's exactly what Yancy Lazarus needs in his life: more complications. As if being the Hand of Fate and the newly appointed guardian over one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse wasn't headache enough.

All Yancy wants is an easy life on the open road - chock-full of ribs, beer, cigarettes, and smoky bars blaring with gritty blues music - but that just isn't in the cards. Nope, not anymore. He's been charged with saving the world, and now that he's got a no-shit demon riding shotgun in his head, he's sorta committed to the cause.

If Yancy can't sort through this colossal heap of bullshit, he's coffin bound. But, he's not dead yet. In fact, he even has a lead.

Turns out one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse - the pale Rider, Death - is slumming around in one of Yancy's old haunts. In order to corner this new threat, though, Yancy's gonna have to face some deadly supernatural nightmares from his distant past. And, to make matters worse, he's not the only one trailing the Pale Rider. A powerful new mage with some serious magical chops is also aiming to find the Fourth Seal and he'll do whatever it takes to win. Even if it means hurting those closest to Yancy...like FBI Agent Nicole Ferraro.

    "Yancy really kicks it!"

    : hard-boiled, urban-fantasy, fantasy, paranormal, action-adventure, snarky, exmilitary, audiobook

    Always a good read, Hunter keeps the pace and the interest while the snarkiness just keeps getting better. The guild has lost its mind, and now Yancy is saddled with a desk jockey as his parole supervisor. There is lots of scary stuff, but the publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers here. I loved it!
    Charlie Kevin continues to be terrific as Yancy's narrator!

    "An adventure not to be missed"

    I enjoyed reading about Yancy Lazarus and his trial and tribulations trying to do the right thing and save the world. Charlie Kevin, narrator, was amazing and brought Yancy to life. His voice was right on the mark and the inflections, reactions and changes in characters were just like watching a movie. The story is amazing. The characters are vivid and the narrator only added to the enjoyment.

    "Love it!!!"

    Lots of action for Yancey. Yancey is the Forth Seal. Plus zombies, demons and Voodoo. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

    Story
    "Smackdown Yancy style! GREAT"

    Our favorite mage is back. “Not just any mage Yancy freaking Lazarus, rambler, gambler, blues man, hand of fate and fixer of all things shitty.” Those are Yancy’s words. James Hunter breathes life and attitude in Yancy. He makes Yancy says go funk yourself, poetically and with similes.

    The ongoing meta plot of this series now goes into high gear as the seals of the apocalypse and the archdemons who guard them are now front and center to the storyline. In Savage, Yancy must obtain the fourth seal from, Ong, the Nage King.

    How many things can Yancy multitask? He is sharing head space Cassius, an Undine, and Azazel the second horseman of the Apocalypse. He is working for the hand of fate with ultimate edict you can maimed but do not kill the Prophet. Yancy has been demoted, put on probation, tortured, and mutilated, but he cannot kill the person who is responsible. Craptacular, Yancy’s word not mine.

    Yancy wields the vis and nox with deadly, wanton, viciousness. His anger is visceral for the people that have been killed, manipulated and zombified. He is insane with pain from his torture from Pa Beauvior, the Voodoo Daddy. Years ago, Yancy killed Beauvior with a bullet in one eye, which blew out the back of his skull. Now Beauvior wants them to look like twins. Yancy does not go down easy. Remember voodoo is all about zombies, mind control, torture, gangs, child soldiers and death.

    When the choice is the release of Azazel, from his prison in Yancy’s mind, or killing Beauvior, Yancy says fuck it. He embraces the nox, a demonic power. Accepting the demon’s help he risk being a greater threat than the very thing he’s fighting against. Yancy will worry about that on another day.

    He gets assistance from Arch-Mage Borgstrom, head of the Guild who wants him executed for treason; his newly appointed supervisor, Judge Drukiski, the assistant chief clerical supervisory agent, who after six years of service has NO field work; his sidekick FBI Agent Nicole Ferraro, a smart, tough, badass gal pal.

    Love this book because there are all the epic conflict and fight scenes we expect from a Yancy Lazerous novel.

    "Fun, but where’s the rest?"

    I am not in love with the narrator, but the story is fun. I need more now.
