I'm Lucian Colt, and this story is mainly about me punching zombies in the face. Loads of 'em.
You'd think that life would be easy-breezy for a handsome, demonic badass like me, but you'd be wrong. The demon doesn't help me with rent, doesn't help me pick up chicks or anything fun like that. Instead, he's all about violence. Lots of it. So, when this super-powered necromancer shows up in town and starts emptying the city's graveyards, my buddy Gadreel thinks it's go time. Before the Veiled Order knows it, a war is about to break out between the living and the dead. Pretty scary, eh?
Oh, and get this! Turns out that this Demon-Heart gig isn't all it's cracked up to be. The guys who stuck this infernal organ in me left out the fact that, someday, when I die, I'll be heading straight to Hell. Ain't that a bitch?
Join me as I kick some major ass, have an existential crisis, get shot down by cute girls, generally mess everything up for my friends and, just maybe, come out of the deal having learned how valuable my teammates are. It's going to be a wild and filthy ride!
Trigger Warning: This book has a lot of guns in it, and sometimes, their triggers get pulled, resulting in devastating headshots. If you're not into that sort of thing, or if you've got issues with dirty words, dirty thoughts or talking spiders, then slowly back away from this book and retreat to your safe space. Wouldn't want you to get your feelings hurt.

Great book!! I love this series. I love Lucien. Yes he is a whiner and butt head but he learns how to work with others. This book has it all. It is funny and full of action. This is just as good as the book 1 if not better. James Foster really brings the story to life. Cant till the next book. I received this book free for an honest review. However, it is worth a credit or the price of the book.. I do recommend. As i stated in my review of the last book. This book reminds me of the Dresden books. If you love them you'll love this series.
"Great addition to the series"
For those of you playing along at home this is another fun, very entertaining and enjoyable addition to the series. Full of sarcasm, humor and non-stop action. The story is constantly moving forward pulling you in from the beginning and keeping you hooked until the end. Bottom line it's a darn good book. Definitely worth your time.
Lucy (Lucian) definitely has his faults, but what's a guy to do when they have a Demon Heart. Wanting to prove himself he tries to take on the necromancer by himself which doesn't end well. Putting himself, his friends and his teammates in a good bit of trouble. He needs to be a it more careful. Even a demon can be killed.
James Foster does a fantastic job with the narration. Nice voice.Easy to listen to for hours at a time. Great character voices. On spot delivery of the humor and sarcasm. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. He brings the characters to life through his narration. One of the best narrators out there.

"Demons and zombies"
You like a different take on zombies than this is your book. Demons zombies and necromancers you can't get better.
I received this book free in return for a unbiased review.
"Can not wait for book three!"
This was even better than the first book. There is nothing in the first book that will prevent you from enjoying this book. Book one delineates how he received the demon heart and his relationship with the order.
Lucian (Lucy) is a little reckless in this story. That happens to some men when they get bigger toys. The demon heart makes him a little stronger and he wants to prove to everyone, especially people who intimidate him, that he is a bad ass, despite being a demon.
Being a leader means making the best decisions for your team, not having the highest body count or make the most important kill. Lucy is just ass hole enough to get people needless killed and spends the remainder of the story trying to prove that he learned his lesson.The secondary characters are funny and add to the book, especially the spider. Since the order uses him as a team leader it would make sense to have a set of the supporting characters.
From book one you also learn that Lucy was partially dead when given the choice of dying or being saved. But the order did not quite inform him of the small print in that option...giving him the demon heart means he will go to hell. It is not that he was Mother Teresa before he got the heart. But that is now a concern that will be (most likely) expanded in the next book.
There is action with all kinds of guns and explosives, cussing and other paranormal happening in the Motor City, Detroit, my home town. Enjoy this because I did!
"Anti hero action"
Good story, with superb narration. This a good anti hero novel, I'm not sure the main character knows who he is just yet, but that's always the fun part of a journey. Good secondary characters and entertaining mythos make this series a good listen.

I haven't listened to book 1, but this book is great. Kinda gory in parts, but it's a zombie book, so it's expected. The narrator did a really good job with all the different characters and made the book stand out.

"Lucy is getting better"
I did read the first book, I found in this story Lucy (Lucians nickname) a better character this time around. His demon heart lands him in trouble once again from the beginning, almost exorcised, then forced to work with the people who tried to do this to him. His character is growing getting better with more story. I liked him more in this book than the first. He discovers the cost of having a Demons Heart and I was surprised by how he handled it as he had no clue how bad it will be. The Necromancer was a very good threat and again showed how Lucy isn't the ultimate weapon but he was still able to overcome it with help from his friends. The spider is a nice touch too.
"Made doomsday fun"
I loved the characters in this book. The main character's fear of seeming weak made him run into dangerous situations and continually mess up things for his team mates in really funny ways. I thought it was clever and fun I enjoyed it and would have thought it worth the listen. I got this book in exchange for a review from audiobook boom
"Good continuation of the series"
This book is the sequel to Raw Power, and I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I thought book 1 was great, and this one was no different. It follows Lucian Colt, who had a heart transplant from a demon, and afterwards gained abilities, and this sequel is just as action packed as the first.
The narrator was James Foster, and he is great! He has many different distinct voices (a hallmark of a great narrator). This was not my first book narrated by him. I also listened to him on the first few books of the "Moonrat" series. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of urban fantasy.
The pace of this book was steady and the narration excellent. The main character is still a jerk but has his moments of insight and reflection that make you like him just a bit more. A very good listen.
