Gunter and Bob are back

This story picks up right after the last story. Since we already met Gunter, no H, and Bob in the last chapter this one starts out with them getting another case quite quickly. The plot is quite similar, although it is a completely different story and in my opinion even better than the first. While these books are a series and sequential you can listen to this one without hearing the first, it would help to get the backstory and the overall plot, but not entirely needed.
The overall plot is better than the first and Gunter is still trying to find his sister. There isn’t much mystery in this story as it is fairly easy to figure out who is who and what is going on. Even with that it is continues the overall story arc and I look forward to seeing where this is going next.
Bob is by far my favorite character. A fat mortician who is scared of everything and is the sidekick of a demon hunter. He isn’t super funny but offers some comic relief to a degree. I find his hysterical even though he isn’t actually trying to be funny.
This one has quite a bit of sound effects. Some of it was a bit much but some of it really enhanced the story. I liked hearing all the birds and the tires squeal. As with the last book, Fehskens’s character voices are top notch and he continues to voice each of the characters differently which really makes this narration first class. I still think Bob’s voice is my favorite.

Father Gunter Rides Again

Father Gunter is pretty bada$$...for a priest. It seems he's got his mojo back and is determined to find his sister. The demons, however, have different ideas. And their not above telling him so and using Theresa as a tool whenever possible.

Johan and Robert head to the town of Mountainview after seeing a news story by Father Gunter's trusted prime time news team to see why its residents keep killing themselves. There they meet Father Nelson and soon find out there are some heavy hitters in town who have big plans for Mountainview and don't want Father Gunter interfering. These demons won't be happy until everyone in town is either dead or crazy. With Robert at his side, Father Gunter doesn't waste any time taking on whoever he needs to in order to send the demons back to where they came from.

This was a fun listen and a nice diversion from some heavier reading I've been doing. I would still like to see the dialogue be more fluid and flow more realistically when read out loud. It has a stiff ring to it and doesn't sound the way people really speak. I would also like it if this book was at least two hours longer and gave more detail and was more nuanced throughout the entirety of the story and if some time was spent on backstory through the use of flashbacks or conversation for both Robert and Johan. We, the readers, need to get to know these characters and identify with them and their history in order to continue to root for them.

Having said all that, it was fun to listen to and a well developed plot with above average narration. I love the way John Fehskens voices Father Gunter. The rest of the narration is done well, too. I'm looking forward to the next Father Gunter listen!

Demon hunting at its best

Fans of Constantine and the BPRD will be some happy campers. Father Gunter Is a demon hunter that will keep you well entertained. The scope and variety of demons is great. Indie end up listening to these a bit out of order so I do recommend listening to the series from the first book in order as things will connect even better for you. That being said this is still a great demon hunting story on its own but there is more meat on the bone in this and the later stories if listened to in order. Who has the father’s sister? What are the demons after? Which demons are here and involved? And much much more. Enjoy. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Demon hunters to die for.

First, I have to start off by stating that I got this book free of charge in exchange for a review, but as I always state, this does not in any way impact my review. My reviews are always honest and my own.

Having read the author's previous Father Gunter novel I was interested to see if the second book would match up with the first. It certainly did, and if anything this one is far more chilling and the edge of the seat stuff than the first. Here, we see Gunter and his newly recruited assistant Demon Hunter, Robert in the town of Mountain View, where an outbreak of recent suicides has prompted them to believe a demon is at work. When they arrive and begin their investigation they are appalled to realize there is not one but two demons at work in the town. As deaths pile up, the pair find their only allies are the local priest and his niece, a waitress in a diner owned by the first demon, who it transpires is subservient to the more powerful second demon, a close follower of Satan himself. With tension mounting the hunters soon realize that the large flocks of ravens gathering in and above the town are being controlled by the evil pair. Worse, the demons themselves can transform themselves into ravens to evade and confuse their pursuers. The climax of the book takes place, fittingly in the local church and I can only describe it as being a scene from Hell as the demon hunters go head to head in a battle to secure the safety of humanity itself from the powers of darkness. A thrilling, gripping read from start to finish.

enjoyed this as much as the first one

These are fun books and I've enjoyed both that I've heard Has some supernatural in it and the characters are pretty good. I like the demon hunting ex-priest and his sidekick works great. All in all, I look forward to the next one.

Great Read

The Raven Flies at Night: Father Gunter, Demon Hunter Supernatural Thriller Book Two was a great read by Janine R. Pestel. Father Gunter and his friend Robert travel to Mountainview to investigate a demon's presence. The townsfolk's become depressed and suicidal. They meet Father Nelson who gives them an amulet that will help them against the demons. This was another great Father Gunter read. I can't wait to read more in this series.

It's like Constantine and Supernatural.

I actually like the characters and even though I did not listen to the first book yet, it was easy to follow and the narrator was good with the different characters. I hope to hear more from Father Gunter.

A strange tale.

It takes while to get going.
But once it does, it is a steady pace.
The narration is ok. Not the best, not the worst.
The story had more potential in my opinion.
