Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Paranormal, 2016

Eleven years ago, atheist Malcolm Romero met a god. Now he's a demon-hunting voodoo priest armed with a holy machete named Hounacier. After the murder of his mentor, he returns to New Orleans to catch the killer. But more is at stake when Malcolm finds himself betrayed, and his holy blade stolen. Now Malcolm's only hope to save his soul and to recover Hounacier is the Valducan knight sent to kill him, Matt Hollis, the wielder of the holy revolver Dämoren.

    "Best one out of a great series"

    Amazing book!
    If you like monsters and voodoo and all that supernatural hunter badass stuff this book will not disappoint.

    Story, SOLID. Ties in perfectly with the first one and carry on the story beautifully.

    Narration. RC Bray is one of the best narrators out there and this is another example of his superior ability.

    I would recommend to anyone who
    - like the first one
    - thought the first one was okay but not sure about continuing the series... take the leap of faith and listen.
    - likes the monsters and paranormal genre
    - like a bad ass Haitian man killing monsters like a baaaaadassss.

    "Action packed and thought provoking"

    Hounacier, the second book in the Valducan series and the sequel to Seth Skorkowsky's Damoren, deals with the weilder of the demon slaying machete Hounacier, Malcolm Romero. After the murder of his mentor, the previous wielder of Hounacier, Malcolm returns to New Orleans to try and find the killer. He is instead drawn into his old life, a life filled with Loa, with voodooo priests and priestesses, where magic is real, and where a plot to have revenge against the wielders of Hounacier has Malcolms life and very soul, as well as Hounacier, in jeopardy. With a fast paced plot, exotic locations, really engaging characters and a villain that has a sympathetic reason for being that way, Mr. Skorkowsky has really taken this series to new levels, especially after the excellent work in Damoren. Any fan of Urban Fantasy should get a copy. This is as good as anything written by Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green or Tim Marquitz, who are some of my favorite urban fantasy authors. As far as narration, R.C. Bray does his usual spectacular job, breathing life into an already rich book. I anxiously await the third book.

    Story
    "R. C. Bray's Narration Is Audible Chocolate"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. I recommended Damoren (Valducan, Book 1) to several friends of mine and 2 out of 3 of them ended up preordering Hounacier as I did. The remaining friend did not, however, only becuase he can't listen to R. C. Bray narration again until he gets his diabetes under control again (it's an audible chocolate thing).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Malcolm is an absolute BOSS because he was a one man recking crew with few allies to support him


    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    Spectacular. I have no doubt R. C. Bray's narration of Hounacier will score yet another Audie nomination for Skorkowsky's Valducan series.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no spoilers


    Any additional comments?

    Keep em' coming Skorkowsky!

    "Excellent follow up read!!!"

    I thought it would be a continuation of the last book but it was a good deviation from it. This series is well written and pretty original in its lay out of an already over saturated niche.

    "On Par With Marsters' Dresden Readings."

    Bold claim, right? Seriously. Most Contemporary Supernatural is all about angsty teenagers and repressed sexual urges. Exactly NONE of that here. Very well written and read by a master voice actor.

    Wow. Just when you think it can't get worse for our hero it does!!!

    But that is why this story is excellent. It all hangs together really well and it is a thrilling and imaginative ride!

    Story
    "more revealed about the inner workings of Valducan"

    Hounacier is the name of the enchanted machete carried by Macolm Romero.  Romero was portrayed as an unlikable character in the first novel.  Here he is the main character and more than a little complicated.  His academic path was interrupted when he was introduced to a Voodoo shaman and drawn to the mysterious world of demons he couldn’t deny.

    The Valducan barely survived the last attack by the demons who outnumbered them.  Now Romero’s adopted father has been murdered and he has to find out why.  In his impetuousness, he goes it alone, trusting the wrong people.  Taken over by a demon, his only hope may be death at the hand of Damoren, Matt Hollis’s enchanted revolver.

    In the second novel of the series, more is revealed about the inner workings of the men called to the Valducan.  We learn more about the demons they are fighting and the men who vow to protect their enchanted weapons.  It is hard to compare the two novels, because the listener has much more understanding of the men and demons.  It is somewhat less satisfying in that regard, fewer things are new, but still a very entertaining novel, just in a different way.

    R. C. Bray is excellent as usual. His rich baritone drips with intrigue as he deftly shifts between accents and demons. He is a joy to listen to and brings the story to life.

    Hounacier is book two in the Valducan series.  Though there is a nod to the first novel, it stands on its own as a separate volume.  Still, it would be good to read them in order to know what happened previously and understand the special weapons and why they are so important to the men who wield them.  If you enjoyed book one, don’t hesitate to continue on.  Recommended.

    "STOP MAKING THE SUMMARY A SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!"
    If you could sum up Hounacier in three words, what would they be?

    BALLSOUT F@#$ing AWESOME!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hounacier?

    I'M NOT A SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Bray recorded the previous book Damoren and just like in Damoren he does an awesome job.<br/><br/>Having read the Kindle book first I can say that though the verity of accents, tones and characters voices he is able to give the book a life that is other wise missing


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    AGAIN I'M NOT A SPOILER!!!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    What the F!@# is up with publishers/writers spoiling the either the first half or even the whole book in the summary!!!!!!! Am I the only one who is tired of reading summary and spent most of the book waiting for the summary to happen!!!!! Espacally when it is an other great twist!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!<br/><br/>Ok... ok...rant over<br/><br/>If you loved Damoen you will love Hounacier but keep in mind that Hounacier is much more of a hard-boiled-noir-mystery then action packed trill ride that Damoen was.

    I loved Damoren and can say the same about this book as well. I'm very much hoping that more of these stories are made. Highly recommended!

    "I can't believe I listened to the whole thing"

    I have no idea what this book was really about. Demons, New Orleans, Voodoo, sex, sex, and a lot of very descriptive bloody and violent killings of people. I am not a 20 or 30 something, but I enjoy a good urban fantasy. This was just obnoxious gratuitous sex and violence only psychopaths would think about. I liked the first book, but I won't be listening to any more in this series. I am just waiting for the Jim Butcher to end his hiatus.

    R. C. Bray is brilliant as usual.
