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?

What was there not to like I cant think of anything bad to say I loved this

Who was your favorite character and why?

Quincy Harker he just takes the ball and runs with it but always has a back up

What about James Anderson Foster’s performance did you like?

He gives life to the characters, individualizes them and creates a world within a world

I highly recommend this book but if you are going to listen or read I would start at the beginning. Year one is just as good and introduces you to all the characters in the cambion cycle.

Fighting evil can be a raunchy, vulgar fun time.

Bawdy and fun. Don't expect high brow fiction. This is a fun, raunchy and vulgar fantasy with a loudmouth demon hunting magician. An easy and fun story. Bubblegum fiction.

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.

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.

meh

This book is not nearly as good as the previous one. I got so bored that I didn't even finish it.
