Note: The series has been combined into box sets. Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter Omnibus Volume One contains the first 12 novellas of the series.
The Quest for Glory continues as Quincy Harker travels to Charleston looking for a missing Archangel and becomes embroiled in local magical turf wars and potentially murderous politics. Things really heat up when an evil wizard tries to burn the city to the ground, with Harker at ground zero in the conflagration!
Glory gave up her wings to save the world; now, Harker and the Shadow Council are working to get them back. To do that, they have to locate eight AWOL Archangels and convince them to go back to work. But not all these angels want to get back to the business of Heaven, and not all of them even remember who they are.
Point of view:
This is book 10 in the Quincy Harker Demon Hunter series. It’s also part 2 of a four part story arc spanning books 9-12. As such, there may be spoilers to book 9 in my review.
(Honestly there’s pieces here and there that come up from previous books, so they’re best enjoyed in order and after reading all the previous books. That said, I *think* you could start with book 9 and do OK if you wanted.)
Harker and various other members of the gang are searching for all the Archangels in order to bring God back to His heavenly throne. As always, irreverence and Demon battles abound. Add in an uncooperative Angel and local witches who may be as much hindrance as help and it makes for a suspenseful and action packed novella.
This definitely ends on a cliffhanger and I’m immediately starting Angel Dance.
James Anderson Foster is perfect again. He’s just so much fun to listen to – not only bringing snark for Harker, but unique voices and personalities for all the secondary characters as well. 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.
