Heaven Can Wait

I don’t go around indiscriminately killing… Oh screw it, I can’t even say that with a straight face.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
It’s raining demons in Atlanta, and Quincy Harker and the Shadow Council are humanity’s last great hope for survival.

The demon Orobas has a plan to destroy the world, and only Harker and his team of legacy folk heroes can stop him. Standing against the rising tide of darkness are Harker, the immortal magic-wielding son of Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray, Detective Rebecca Gail Flynn of the Charlotte Police Department, and Harker’s uncle Luke, who most people know better as Vlad Dracula. Alongside them fight the descendants of legends – the mysterious Adam, Dr. Watson’s great-grandson Jack, Jo Henry, descended from the famous steel driver John Henry, and Gabby Van Helsing, whose ancestor was Luke’s greatest rival.

This band of humans and monsters have to save the world from Orobas, and whatever terrible force is lurking behind him.

Point of view:
1st person. Mostly Harker’s perspective, but a 3rd person bit from Jack.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This is book 8 in the Quincy Harker series. Events build off previous books, so it’s best to listen to these all in order. This review may contain spoilers to earlier books.

The whole team is back together again trying to find Orobas and they’ve traveled to Atlanta. What better way for a villain to stage a major event of chaos than at a gathering of tens of thousands of people. The clock is ticking and it’s not just one threat. I love how all these characters work together to not only stop Orabas but all the various creatures who have literally surfaced to fight. While Harker and Flynn are great – Gabby really shines (can she be considered shiny?) here. She’s like the spunky, opinionated, and scary little sister of the team.

While the immediate threat is vanquished, as always there’s more for Harker and his ever growing band of misfits to fight.

James Anderson Foster continues to be perfect for this series. As Hartness continues to add more and more main characters as well as adversaries – it’s a showcase of Foster’s immense talent. Voices, emotions, and the ever present snark are awesome.

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.
