I thoroughly enjoyed this edition of the series and thought it was the best one yet, though I still miss Jack!
So this one sees Sam and Callie called in by the church to investigate a missing girl and as Sam says "Vampires. They're everywhere. It's my job to stop them. A woman is missing. Hell, isn't there always? The church thinks a vampire is involved, but it's much worse than that. Much worse. Witches. Why did it have to be witches?" - Sam Harlan. Poor Sam has his work cut out for him when he realises that witches are involved and life is about to become way more complicated for him.
As I said, even though I miss Jack, I feel like Sam is finally becoming the strong character he needs to be. I connected with him a lot more here!! Callie meanwhile has her own troubles to deal with, but she still manages to keep her faith throughout. She really is one kick ass sister!!!
The plot was fast paced and intense. Sam and Callie are faced with a new threat with the witches and need to work quickly before it's too late for them. Sam might just need to call in The Sheriff to help! One thing I love about this series too, is what happens to the hunter who kills a vampire, it's unique and adds a little more suspense to the overall story. I feel like Sam is a ticking time bomb and I can't wait to read more!!
In all, this series surprised me a lot, with how much I enjoyed them. It's been too long since I've read a good Vampire story, and these ones are great. Bring on the next one!!!
David Loving was great in this one. He read this really well and his inflections brought the story to life.

Here we have a glimpse in the life of vampire hunter Sam Harlan. In this episode Sam is set against witches and demons, which are quite outside of his normal purview. Sam and his Sister-partner Callie are sent by the church to find a missing girl. It is soon made clear that the situation is much more dangerous than thought to be. Sam is continually reminded that he knows little of the paranormal world, surviving by the skin of his teeth and the Grace of God. This is an exciting and fast-paced adventure, urging me to find the first two volumes to catch up on the action. Although this is book three of the series, and not having read the first two volumes, it was still able to stand on its own without much trouble.

While this is the 3rd book in this series, they are all fairly self-contained, so while you might not know the back story of recurring characters you can still enjoy this book as if it was a standalone novel, but I would suggest reading/listening to the earlier ones in the series too since they are equally enjoyable.
This latest episode in the life of the vampire hunter, Sam Harlan, expands his knowledge of the supernatural world he has found himself in and once again frequently points out to him that he is generally outclassed physically by the supernatural entities that he encounters since he gets beaten up and/or knocked out quite frequently by vampires and worse. The author does a good job of conveying the sense of risk for the main characters and even some of the baddies have shades of grey to their motives.
The narrator does a good job with this novel, the main characters are suitably distinctive without seeming overdone or exaggerated and his pleasant overall tone should result in you finishing this book quite quickly in few sittings.
Overall, this was an enjoyable listen and a strong episode in a series that I am interested in seeing continue.

I found this story very dry.I also found that David Lovings narration was dry and monotone.The main characters were unlikable.I didn't read the first two books.Now I don't feel so bad about that.“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
