Straight out of the pages of the legendary vampire novel Dracula comes a demon hunter for the modern world. Mina Murray and Jonathan Harker had a son. They named him Quincy. His guardian angel calls him Q. Dracula calls him nephew. Demons call him The Reaper.
“There are things in this world that men and women aren’t meant to understand. We aren’t supposed to know these things exist, much less how to fight them. The things that go bump in the night, the monsters in the closet, the shadow out of the corner of your eye – that’s where I live.”
Point of view:
1st person. Entirely from Harker’s perspective.
Content Warning: Book & review mention rape, but neither is graphically detailed.
Irreverent antihero Harker is introduced in this dark yet delightful novella. This descendant of Dracula is out to avenge the rape & murder of a teenage girl by demonic forces. If he can stay out of jail long enough.
While short, I thoroughly enjoyed Hartness’ writing. This is a complete story with solid world building and dynamic characters. I especially liked the “civilian” Detective Flynn and Special Agent Smith. Can’t wait to see more of them as the series continues.
Chose this specifically because James Anderson Foster shared it on his Instagram, I’ve enjoyed his narrations and this looked unique and fun. It turned out to be exactly that. Foster’s performance is wonderful. I enjoyed Harker’s snark, the voices for several creatures, and all the emotions and action. Great listen.
About the author:
John G. Hartness is a teller of tales, a righter of wrong, defender of ladies’ virtues, and some people call him Maurice, for he speaks of the pompatus of love. He is also the award-winning author of the urban fantasy series The Black Knight Chronicles, the Bubba the Monster Hunter comedic horror series, the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter dark fantasy series, and many other projects. He is also a cast member of the role-playing podcast Authors & Dragons, where a group of comedy, fantasy, and horror writers play Dungeons & Dragons. Very poorly.
In 2016, John teamed up with a group of other publishing industry ne’er-do-wells and founded Falstaff Books, a small press dedicated to publishing the best of genre fiction’s “misfit toys.” Falstaff Books has since published over 50 titles with authors ranging from first-timers to NY Times bestsellers, with no signs of slowing down any time soon.
In his copious free time John enjoys long walks on the beach, rescuing kittens from trees and playing Magic: the Gathering. John’s pronouns are he/him.

About the narrator:
Dubbed “the Hardest Working Man in Audiobooks,” James Anderson Foster has won or been nominated for every major award in the audiobook industry, and was one of those kids who actually lettered in drama way back in High School (and if you ask nicely, he might even tell you just how far back that was).
Since that time, he’s done most of his acting behind a microphone, and has narrated audiobooks for a variety of publishers, across nearly all genres – both fiction and non.

It spoke of power, and hunger, and ageless times before men walked the earth. It spoke of destruction like I had never witnessed, even I, who had walked the earth for half a millennium, and I was afraid. – Raising Hell by @johnhartness #Audiobook narrated by @jamesnarrates #Horror #Antihero #Dracula #DarkFantasy #KindleUnlimited #Novella #QuincyHarker #DemonHunterTweet
