Publisher's Summary

Straight out of the pages of the legendary vampire novel Dracula comes a demon hunter for the modern world. Mina Murray and Jonathan Harker had a son. They named him Quincy. His guardian angel calls him Q. Dracula calls him nephew. Demons call him The Reaper.
"There are things in this world that men and women aren't meant to understand. We aren't supposed to know these things exist, much less how to fight them. The things that go bump in the night, the monsters in the closet, the shadow out of the corner of your eye - that's where I live."
This exciting new series from the author of "The Black Knight Chronicles" and the "Bubba the Monster Hunter" short stories is a walk through the dark side, where things go bump in the night, and somebody has to bump back. Quincy Harker is that somebody.

Very fun paranormal modern detective

At first glance and after the first few minutes of listening I thought Raising Hell was going to be very similar in nature to the Sandman Slim series. Well, really the only thing similar here was the voice choice of the narrator James Foster. I tend to really enjoy paranormal detective mysteries so I had pretty high hope for this title.

Quincy Harker is the nephew of Count Dracula, yes, the Count Dracula. Half vampire himself and has been alive for almost two centuries. In this time he has taken up the profession of demon hunter. Because of his lineage Harker has special abilities; such as super strength and speed, an aptitude with magic, a sharp mind and remarkable talent for pissing off the cops. Raising Hell gives a great introduction to Harker and other interesting characters.

We are introduced to Harker while he is performing a home exorcism. This leads him to a college fraternity and ultimately to a very powerful black magic sorcerer. That’s all you get from me about the plot. Because it is so short anything more would be a spoiler.

I will be the first to admit that I have a weakness for protagonists that are belligerent and have a smart a*s attitude with dialog that is full of one liners. Made me laugh out loud several times. Like a cross between Joe Ledger and Michael Talbot.

Raising Hell is a very quick listen, my only real complaint is how short it is. I would be a supporter of a full length novel series. If you like paranormal modern detective stories you will love this audiobook. Kept me engaged throughout and thoroughly entertained. The writing style was perfect and flowed flawlessly. I am looking forward to more from Harker.

This has to be one of James Foster’s most dynamic performances ever! Somehow making his regular super calm and soft spoken voice into a raspy, gravely treat for the ears, for Harker. While switching back to several characterizations with his normal voice. Keeping them all distinct and easily identifiable. Clearly making Foster a great choice for this series.

A good lure

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.
