Note: The series has been combined into box sets. Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter Omnibus Volume One contains the first 12 novellas of the series. (almost 30 hours!)
They are humanity’s defense against the supernatural. They are the light in the darkness. They are the guardians that walk in the night. They are the Shadow Council.
Joanna Harrison is a freelance editor, working mother, and loving daughter. She is also the great-granddaughter of legendary steel driving man John Henry, and she has taken up his hammer to fight against the monsters that threaten her family and her world. She is Jo Henry, and she packs one hell of a punch.
Jo is fighting like the devil, looking for an angel. She’s on a mission to find the Archangel Michael, give him back his holy sword, and bring his memories back. But first she has to stay alive. Through underground cage fights and demon hunts in the desert, Jo will need all the help she can get to wake up the angel. And when a demon kidnaps her mother and daughter, it’s time to come out swinging.
Point of view:
This is book 9 in the Quincy Harker series by John G. Hartness. While I think they’re best enjoyed in order, this launches a new direction and storyline for the series so you could start here.
With the introduction of Jo, Hartness gives us a new heroine to root for (and a little break from Harker 😉). She’s looking to find the archangel Michael but frustrated to learn he doesn’t know who he is now that he’s in the mortal realm. As always, there are demons to battle. Friends will be lost and loved ones are in peril – so Jo doesn’t have time for Michael to get with the program.
Great balance of mystery, suspense, and action. Listened to it in one afternoon. Looking forward to more Jo.
James Anderson Foster is great as always. He *is* the voice of this series and even though this mostly focused on a female MC – he did a fantastic job.
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.

“Aren’t you two even going to pretend to be excited? I mean it’s not every day you get to battle a demon, is it?”
