Quincy Harker is walking on the side of the angels this time. Or at least beside an angel. It's the summer of 2009, and Harker, the immortal magic-wielding nephew of Dracula, has a brand-new guardian angel. Her name is Glory, and she's there to try to keep Harker from getting himself killed. Try is the operative word.
Someone is murdering Nephilim, the rare offspring of human and angel, and using their blood for a terrible ritual. Harker has to find out who the next victim is, who the murderer is, and what the plan is. All in three days. Because no matter what kind of help Heaven sent, it might not be enough to prevent someone from raising a lot of Hell.
Heaven Sent is Book Five of the best-selling Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter series. Book One of the series, Raising Hell, was nominated for the 2016 Manly Wade Wellman Award by the NC Speculative Fiction Foundation.

"This series rocks!!"
Being a massive fan of this series since book 1, I was thrilled to be able to listen to this one, which I received from the narrator, for free, via Audiobook boom (This in NO way affected or influenced my thoughts.). In this edition we get to learn how Harker gets together with Glory, which I loved learning about because I was always curious to see when she first appeared to him. This one also deals with Harker trying to find out who is murdering Nephilim and why.
It's hard to expand on the plot anymore because being a novella I could inadvertently spoil either this book or previous books, suffice it to say that this book rocked!! Every single story in this series has been fast paced, well written and addicting. This one being no different. The author has really created an amazing world, but it's not even the world that makes this series so good, it's the characters!
Once again, I find myself being dragged into Harkers life and not wanting to leave. He is such a snarky, foul mouthed, lovable hero and one you can't help but love!! His parents are Jonathon and Mina Harker and his uncle is non other than Dracula!!! That alone should make you want to rush out to read these books. Even with this being #5, we are still trying to figure out what he is exactly!
Anyway, this book, and indeed the series, is amazing!! It's something I think would make for an great TV series ;) ;) Love these books and I can't recommend them enough.
As always, James Foster delivered a flawless performance. He is Harker and really brings him to life!! Not once, in all the books I've listened to that were narrated by him, has he failed to deliver anything other than a brilliant experience. He is so easy to listen to and seems to enjoy these books, which just makes the listening experience that much better!! Highly, highly recommend this narrator, and this series.
"A Look Back 7 Years into Q’s Life"
This story takes place about 7 years prior to books 1-4. Q meets Glory, his guardian angel for the first time and we learn more about his obligation to Detective Flynn who he works with in the prior books.
Someone is killing half human/half angels at an alarming rate and our beloved Q must work to figure out why this is happening and to try to stop it. His "Uncle Luke" helps with his research and as usual is a big source of information for Q.
If you've read the prior books, this will not disappoint, though it was weird to go backwards in the timeline rather than pick up where book 4 left off.
The narrator is absolutely perfect for this story. James Foster's ability to portray Q's snark and attitude is top notch. And he differentiates the other characters well.

"I want more!!"
I really do enjoy listening to these books. I excited for the books to come. I giggled throughout the entire book. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
"Another Hit Story"
#5 went back to an early Quincy and adds in how he met his guardian angel Glory. I hope in the next book we get more back story on Glory.
Mr. Hartness combines action, drama and creative deadly creatures of the night into something you just can't stop listening to. There is so much history in these stories because Quincy has lived a long life and being related to a Master Vampire (who is really a kinda good guy) gives the listener an awesome story line. Add in James Foster doing the narration - instant Hit Stories.
Keep them coming plz, cause I'm really hooked.

"Worth your time and credit"
Very entertaining, engaging, well written and enjoyable listen. Another great addition to the series. You know as soon as you start listening that your in for one heck of an fun and enjoyable story. My only complaint is that it was to short. All of his stories pull you right in and before you know it they are over and you still want more. For a shorter book though, as usual it is full of mystery, suspense, humor and full of action. The whole series is definitely worth the listen
Great characters. Making an historically feared, stuff of nightmares character likable is a great twist to a story line. How can you not be intrigued.
These books would make a great T.V. series.
Once again James Foster does a fantastic job with the narration. He is the perfect voice for these stories. Great character voices. Great delivery. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. He brings the characters and story to life. All around very entertaining and enjoyable.

Hartness always leaves you wanting for more. The books are short and to the point, conflict, action, over. What better hero than someone with Dracula as a uncle and a guardian angle. If you know Qunicy you know what to expect, action, magic, and snarky comments. If you have not read the other novels in the series please read them. It is not necessary for enjoyment, but a few of the earlier ones are better.
This was very enjoyable since it has been a long time a new Qunicy has been released, but it was not be best. ***spoiler*** Not enough Dracula! If you are a fan, you know how enjoyable it is when Dracula goes vamp on someone who threatens his nephew. How can you have Dracula making only a cameo?
"Dracula's nephew battles demons!"
Great series, read many of them already. The author takes an approach to the original Dracula legend and drags it to modern times. Runs with the theory Dracula bit Mina and johnathan Harker and their baby is a suped up supernatural creature like Blade but not vampiric in nature and is also a wizard. AWESOME!!! The narrator delivers a gritty black and white noir style narration to it that really delivers the feel of the story. Love it! Can't wait for more!

"Great new entry to the series!"
I am an unabashed fan of this series. This particular story takes place seven years prior to the current stories, and deals with Harkers first meeting with Glory, his guardian angel. It also deals with a case involving dead nephilim, and who is murdering them and draining their blood. Also in town is an arch demon looking to take Quincy out of the equation. All in all, not a night of pizza and beer for Harker. Well plotted and with excellent dialogue, another great addition to the series.
James Foster does his usual top notch job narrating, bringing all the characters to glorious snarky life.

"Festive listen, ideal intro"
This is the first book - though it is book 5 of the series - that I read after receiving it as a gift from the narrator, James Foster, in exchange for an unbiased review, which I gladly submit.
This title is an introduction to the series and I was instantly consumed by the action, language, well-written story, and humor. The author's creativity and skill, coupled with an excellent performance of the book by the narrator, created a world into which I immediately connected, and wrapped myself in, like the comfort of a favored blanket, made of violence, magic, monsters, and mayhem - in no particular order - are a great combination. In hindsight, each book works well as a stand-alone as well as in series order, and this book can fit in as a 1st listen or 5th. I feel sorely equipped with words to describe how completely this author and narrator pair have enhanced my days and nights with their writing and performance skills.
Fast action, Funny Puns and updated old school style.
No, this was my first.
This was the first book in the series from this writer that I’ve read. It was worth the read.
I love the Buffy the vampire slayer and ACDC PUNs, the fast action and the magic use.
I like the almost classic Gumshoe vibe, and updated demon hunter humor.
Its really well done and I love the reader, from just reading this I am more then interested in reading the other books in the series.
