Publisher's Summary

What do you get when you cross a snarky vampire, a feral werewolf, and an Aztec god?

Two years have passed since John the vampire did the impossible and returned from the edge of oblivion, and he didn’t even get a novelty T-shirt for his troubles. You know the ones: "I went to Sheol, and all I got was this stupid shirt". Now, our “hero”, Warden Broadway, and Ludvig the Hunter are finally ready to carry out their mission of eliminating all warlocks on Earth - which was tasked to them by Hecate herself.

Locke descends into the political nightmare that is the High Council and discovers there is more than meets the eye with the Elders. What could possibly be more important than preventing the apocalypse?!

Depweg takes a much needed vacay in Faerie where he learns to be at peace with the raging monster inside his mind. That is, until his R&R is cut short by new orders that’ll send him into a war zone. Neat!

And most importantly, John continues his quest of replacing his prized collection of Battlefield Earth cups.

Those Wonderful Toys returns to the fast-paced, oftentimes comical style of action that makes John the lovable antihero that he is. Cake and puppies for all.

The cake is a lie, and you can rescue your own Lilith - damn puppy.

If you like Jim Butcher, Shayne Silvers, Cameron O’Connell, Kevin Hearne, Steve McHugh, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Shannon Mayer, or K. F. Breene, you won't be able to put down the highly addictive Preternatural Chronicles.

Fantastic sequel

If you like goofy urban fantasy humor and epic battles between good versus evil then this is the perfect series for you. John Cook's story is also revealed by the writer to be far more personal than we ever let on. I was touched by the tribute and am looking forward to the next installment. The narration, as always, is one of the major reasons to enjoy these books. The comedic timing and quips are fantastic.

John Freaking On!!

Another soiled entry into the John-A-Verse by Mr Blain. I’m not 100 % sure where the series will ultimately end up going, but I’ve definitely got a feeling it’s barreling towards its final destination… where ever that is??? I look forward to seeing to seeing what kind of twists & turns it takes & where we end up at the end.

11hr and 13 minutes went by too fast!!

Love the characters and the easter egg references that Hunter Blain peppers throughout the story, and of course the way Luke Daniels brings life to our favorite vampire! I can't imagine any other voice for John - kind of like no one else could do Dresden the way James Marsters does. John is the anti-hero the same way Deadpool is... both are kind of merks with snark, a heart, and all! The story was great, and I can't wait for the next book!! But somehow the 11+ hours went by too quickly.

Not the best from this author

I loved this series from the first chapter of the first book and the fact that one of my favorite narrators reads it, makes it even better. However, it is getting to the point where I am zoning out for most of the book because we get the same repetitive fluff for most of the book. Same jokes, same rants, and the MC doesn't seem to develop at all mentally. MC: I can't let my anger control me, then proceeds to let his anger control him. The rest of the characters develop and grow but the MC seems to stay the same. Also the author is over describing every setting and that's when I start to zone out.

Amazing

Once again the awesome Luke Daniels delivers I love reading Hunter Blain's books first before hearing the audiobook. I know what's coming but the shear brilliance of Luke Daniels brings something new every time. I find myself laughing louder and cringing more. Love it. Can't wait for the next installment.
