Hell Freezes Over

If I’ve learned anything from the past century of wandering the Earth, and the jury is certainly out on that question, it’s not to bother arguing with supernatural beings.

John G. Hartness
Hell Freezes Over

Audiobook & ebook is available in Kindle Unlimited

Note: The series has been combined into box sets. Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter Omnibus Volume One contains the first 12 novellas of the series. ebook or audiobook (almost 30 hours!)

Publisher’s Synopsis:
He’s no stranger to blood. His uncle is Count Dracula, the most famous vampire in history, after all. But what he finds in a quiet North Carolina family home rocks even the jaded Quincy Harker. Families are being slaughtered, butchered like animals, and it seems like the loving fathers are to blame.

But a ghostly visitor shows Harker that there is more to the story than he can see, even with his mystical Sight. So he goes chasing justice, and his quest takes him deeper and darker places than even his guardian angel can follow, and pits him against foes stronger than any he has ever faced before.

Will Harker solve the mystery before more men, women and children are brutally murdered? Can he fight the powers that are moving behind the scenes to keep the truth hidden? And will he be able to stop the murderer when he finds him? Or it?

Point of view:
1st person. Entirely from Harker’s perspective.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This is book 4 in the Quincy Harker: Demon Hunter series. While there’s a complete story, they’re definitely best enjoyed in order as revelations impact later books.

Oooh! I think this might be my favorite so far. Quincy & Flynn are hunting down answers in the gory death of family that isn’t as it initially appears. Quincy makes a bargain with a demon and thinks a church might be the source of heinous crimes. I continue to love the “mind banter” between Flynn & Quincy. This was a great mix of horror, action, and mystery. Hartness is really creative at weaving truth, history, and religious doctrine. I find myself constantly surprised by what Quincy will encounter next.

I feel repetitive – but running out of ways to laud Foster’s narration. He’s the perfect fit for Quincy in particular and Hartness’ writing overall. It’s a terrific listen and I’m enjoying binging them.

Content Warning:
mention of rape, not graphically described

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.

Hell isn’t for punishment, Quincy. The punishment is being away from the presence of the Almighty.
