This rocked so much!!! I started this and read in in a day. Absolutely loved it and highly highly recommend!
I'm not going to say too much about the plot because it's such a short book that I don't want to spoil it. I will say that it's extremely fast paced and entertaining. I devoured it and honestly didn't want it to end. I don't know how many times I literally laughed out loud with the banter, but I know my boys were looking at me weird!!
Harker was one of the best characters I've read in a long time. He was super snarky and foul mouthed but so lovable :) He is Dracula's nephew and hunts demons. This starts with him doing an exorcism with his surly attitude and never stops from there! I'm so looking forward to more of Harker!
In all, an absolutely delightful and fun read. Only thing is, I need book 2 now!
I thought James Foster couldn't get any better, but he proved me wrong with this book. His rendition of the surly Harker was phenomenal. He really nailed the performance and I hope he does the rest of the series.

This was just plain fun. There is something here that hooked me. It was dark, and full of sarcasm. It gets a little "left-wingy" at times which I could do without, I just thought it was the writer being a bit "snarky". The story did not need jabs at Fox News to have a good story. Also, there was one VERY long and protracted Latin section I could have done without. But as for the story and the characters, all top-notch and I will be digging in to this series in the very near future.
The narrator (James Foster) gave it a real "old-timey" hard-boiled detective sound and feel that really added to the mood. It made me want to find more of his work.

What made the experience of listening to Raising Hell the most enjoyable?
It's funny. It's engaging. It's just plain good!! That characters are great as is the story. Dracula is great. The only downside is that I want more!!
What other book might you compare Raising Hell to, and why?
Not sure really. It's kind of like a manga movie in terms of a different take on a recognised character set. Really good story with no fear of the subject matter.
What about James Foster’s performance did you like?
It's was good. It gave the story a great edge and really got me into it.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
So you think you know Dracula? Just say uncle...
