Publisher's Summary

For bounty hunter Victor McCain, life is complicated. After losing his soul, he agreed to become the new Hand of God, God's bounty hunter on Earth. His job? Track down and kill the worst forms of evil Satan can dish out. But when an ancient threat resurfaces, soon the hunters become the hunted.

In this action-packed sequel to The Hand of God, Victor is closing in on his brother Mikey, who cost him his soul and stole the woman he loves. Soon he discovers his brother's "back up" plan: to unleash beings chained in the darkness from the early days of man in order to bring about the annihilation of the human race. With the help of fellow bounty hunter Winston Reynolds, computer geek Kurt Pervis, and the enigmatic Brother Joshua, Victor is ready to spring his trap and rescue the lovely Samantha when it all goes sideways. Now each member of his team is being targeted for elimination. The only question is, can they stay alive long enough to save the world?

A gripping Supernatural Thriller

After the death of God’s previous bounty hunter, Victor McCain has now become God’s new bounty hunter called the Hand of God. Victor is tasked with tracking down and killing all kinds of evil. Book 2 can be read/listened to without having read/listened to book 1. Author, Tony Acree works a lot of biblical references and research into his writing. The story is fast paced and intense. It’s the kind of book you will want to finish in one reading/listen. Afterward, you will want to pick up the other books in the series.

Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

Not a bad sequel!

Some parts fell a little flat, but overall the book held up quite well. Some very fun combat scenes, needed character development, and fast paced, just like everything I've come to expect from Tony Acree.

Any additional comments?

Entertaining and engaging but unusual and creepy. Very enjoyable supernatural thriller. The story pulls you in immediately and never lets go until the end. Full of action, suspense, mystery and much more. Definitely worth your time.

I did not read the first book in the series. Even though this is the second book in the series I had no problem at all following the story. Definitely can be read as a stand alone.

Interesting cast of characters. Yes, the story has a religious undertone, but it's not a preachy undertone, it's just the backdrop for the brother vs. brother/ good vs. evil setup of the story. One brother works for Satan, the other for God.

His brother Mikey is one of Satan's top lieutenants. Victor is the hand of god. As he says, He's kind of like God's bounty hunter. How's that for strained family relationship.

Steve Rausch did a really good job with the narration. This is the first time I have heard him narrate an audiobook. Nice voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken. Smooth even pace. Good character voices. He did a great job of bringing the characters and story to life. Very enjoyable.

Interesting concept

I don't usually get heavily and obvious religion-themed stories but the sample and the summary of this book intrigued me. I am happy that I received this book as a gift from the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. It is a great way to discover new authors and narrators and, with this book, I have discovered the talent of Steve Rausch. His performance of the variety of characters and their circumstances is very well done.

This second book can stand alone with its intense story line and characters, though I am curious about the beginning, the back story...I am going to get the first book in this series.

Very enjoyable sequel

I loved the first book, Hand of God and wondered where a sequel might take us, I didn't think the title was a spoiler so I won't go there but this book is more of the same, plenty of action, peril, danger and some development of the characters we got to know in the first book.

The narrator is different to the first book and without wanting to say this narrator is not as good, he's not the same and after reading these books back to back I definitely noticed. the narrator has a slight nasal sound to some words and it took a long time to get used to, that said it was by no means a bad performance, just not 5 stars.

Overall I would have liked to have seen an appearance by a certain character we met at the very beginning of the first book but I understand why we won't see him again for a while. looking forward to the next book!
