Summary

Following on last year's award-winning dark fantasy series, Quincy Harker is back, and the stakes are higher than ever.

Collecting four novellas into one volume, The Cambion Cycle sees Harker and his cohorts battling bigger threats, teaming with legends of folklore, and trying to save the world from a demonic horde. All with snark, flair, and heaping helpings of bloodshed and mayhem.

The Cambion Cycle collects the following -

Heaven Sent - the origin of Harker's guardian angel Glory.

Heaven's Door - there's a murderer on the streets of Charlotte, but he's killing angels!

Heaven Help Us - Harker is on the run, and nothing is as it seems in this small town.

Heaven Can Wait - Can Harker and the Shadow Council save the world from a demon invasion?

Hooked

I am usually not a huge fan of books which attempt to combine fictional characters into one super universe. But this is well done. can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

A wild ride through a dark world

Josh here. Man, it feels like it has been so long since I first listened to Year One. After listening to this entry in the series, I have to kick myself repeatedly for waiting so long to get to Year Two.

Quincy Harker is easily my favorite Dark Fantasy series. From the way the stories tie together, to the seemingly unending darkness that lives in this world, to the outstanding performance by James Foster, this story kept me hooked throughout. I know that Year Three is due out soon but man, I really want to continue!

The developments between "Q" and Flynn are fantastic. Likewise, the portrayal of various demonic elements really paint a picture of a secondary landscape that really puts the word dark into the genre. John Hartness has a truly great series here and one that I am truly excited to recommend to others. James Foster's voice for Quincy is fantastic and, given Quincy's nature, I feel it truly fits the character. Luke and Renfield are easily two of my favorite characters in the series. I love Luke's father-like relationship with Quincy.

My favorite scenes involved Mort and Kristy. You can always count on an interesting moment in the storyline when Quincy enters Mort's tavern.

If you want a great fantasy series, do yourself a favor, start with Year One and dive on in! This is a series I can easily see myself listening to again in the future.

Melissa's Review:

This batch of short stories, and I use that term loosely, was written differently than those in book 1. Instead of actually having multiple shorts stories with different situations going on, book 2 was more like one continuous story, just broken up into multiple sections. It was still a great listen, but it wasn't the same as book 1. Additionally, I couldn't help but wonder if the author had originally planned on releasing these stories individually because there was a lot of repetition when it came to such things as who Quincy's uncle was-Dracula, his lineage-great having vampire DNA, his shoes that he loves, etc.

Moving on, I loved all the new characters introduced and can't wait for book 3 to come out. Again, overall, it was a great story.

I love the narrator. He does such a fantastic job, especially with the Quincy character. He has this easy-going, natural flow to his narrating, making it seem as though he's just talking as opposed to reading from a script. I consider that to be a big plus when it comes to narrating. I'm definitely interested in hearing more by this narrator.

Questions/Comments:

There's a part when Flynn wakes up in Quincy's bed after having a long night and realizes that he sleeps in the nude. She already knew this in book 1 though.

So, in part one (I think), Quincy is at the park fighting the tree creature. He ends up taking his shoes off because he loves them and doesn't want to see them get ruined. Makes sense. Yet, in part 2, the reader learns that Quincy actually has several pairs of the same shoes. So in reality, it wouldn't have been that big of a deal if the park pair had been ruined because he has a lot of backups.

I Don’t Know

I enjoyed the stories in the year one set of stories, but I don’t know if I care for how year two developed out. Sort of going way out there. Bad enough we develop a Scooby gang in the first books, but that gang turns out bad and we have a new Scooby gang?

Good fun stories.

I’m giving this a better rating than I would have because I bought the collection so I didn’t have to go out and continue to buy each new story after each cliffhanger ending. I hate cliffhanger endings.

Not as good as the first one

Would you try another book from John G. Hartness and/or James Anderson Foster?

Yes

What could John G. Hartness have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make the characters less clueless...make the plot with multiple storylines that are woven together at the end. I got tired of the "let's go do this--oops that didn't work" so I skipped to the end.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the beginning of the book when Rebecca and Quincy were separated and pursuing their own adventures.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No...too gory for me.

Simply not good

I wanted to like this series. I tried. The first book was meh. The second is awful. The characters seem to change randomly, personalities wildly swinging. events from the first book are ignored as if they never happened. it's silly. simple not a good story.
