Publisher's Summary

I'm Lucian Colt, and this story is mainly about me punching zombies in the face. Loads of 'em.
You'd think that life would be easy-breezy for a handsome, demonic badass like me, but you'd be wrong. The demon doesn't help me with rent, doesn't help me pick up chicks or anything fun like that. Instead, he's all about violence. Lots of it. So, when this super-powered necromancer shows up in town and starts emptying the city's graveyards, my buddy Gadreel thinks it's go time. Before the Veiled Order knows it, a war is about to break out between the living and the dead. Pretty scary, eh?
Oh, and get this! Turns out that this Demon-Heart gig isn't all it's cracked up to be. The guys who stuck this infernal organ in me left out the fact that, someday, when I die, I'll be heading straight to Hell. Ain't that a bitch?
Join me as I kick some major ass, have an existential crisis, get shot down by cute girls, generally mess everything up for my friends and, just maybe, come out of the deal having learned how valuable my teammates are. It's going to be a wild and filthy ride!
Trigger Warning: This book has a lot of guns in it, and sometimes, their triggers get pulled, resulting in devastating headshots. If you're not into that sort of thing, or if you've got issues with dirty words, dirty thoughts or talking spiders, then slowly back away from this book and retreat to your safe space. Wouldn't want you to get your feelings hurt.

Great Book 2 of the series!

I so enjoyed the first book of the Demon-Hearted Series that I was very excited to see Book 2 out and jumped at the chance to give it a listen. In this story, Lucian (Luci) is the same sarcastic, but humorous character that we came to love in the first book, but he has taken a selfish and reckless turn. He compromises some missions and ticks off his friends in his quest to be the hero. Honestly, there were a few times I wanted to knock some sense into him along with the rest of his team. I loved that he redeemed himself in the fight against evil, even though he has the heart of a demon. It's a very interesting play between good and evil that I'm interested to see to the end. The narration is also incredible. James Foster just IS Lucian. I can't imagine anyone else giving voice to this unique character.

This book is action-packed, fast-paced and full of fun stuff like zombies, necromancy, holy swords, and exorcists. I received this audio book at no charge via AudioBookBoom in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend you give this book a listen. Seriously, I enjoy this series so much I am chomping at the bit for the third installment.

Can not wait for book three!

This was even better than the first book. There is nothing in the first book that will prevent you from enjoying this book. Book one delineates how he received the demon heart and his relationship with the order.

Lucian (Lucy) is a little reckless in this story. That happens to some men when they get bigger toys. The demon heart makes him a little stronger and he wants to prove to everyone, especially people who intimidate him, that he is a bad ass, despite being a demon.

Being a leader means making the best decisions for your team, not having the highest body count or make the most important kill. Lucy is just ass hole enough to get people needless killed and spends the remainder of the story trying to prove that he learned his lesson.The secondary characters are funny and add to the book, especially the spider. Since the order uses him as a team leader it would make sense to have a set of the supporting characters.

From book one you also learn that Lucy was partially dead when given the choice of dying or being saved. But the order did not quite inform him of the small print in that option...giving him the demon heart means he will go to hell. It is not that he was Mother Teresa before he got the heart. But that is now a concern that will be (most likely) expanded in the next book.

There is action with all kinds of guns and explosives, cussing and other paranormal happening in the Motor City, Detroit, my home town. Enjoy this because I did!
