Full of bada$$ery, wisea$$ery, and snarka$$ery!
A likely contemporary of Harry Dresden, Mercy Thompson, and Atticus O'Sullivan, Harker is a police consultant in Charlotte NC. His family line includes The Count, and he has a Guardian Angel? His partner is Detective Bex Flynn, and they share a mind link ever since he saved her life with a blood share. Add to all this, a demon, brutal murders linked to a parish church, and a nagging ghost of one of the victims, and a terrific audio performance by James Foster (I know him from Tesser), and you have a real winner! I had not encountered this author/series before, but you can bet that it is on my radar now!

Qunicy Harker, everyones favorite half vampire, magic wielding, demon hunting, homeland security agent, is back for another tale. My first impression was how different the cover artwork is for this fourth novella is compared to the rest of thee series. Going into this I was really hoping that the snarkiness and overall feel of the story is not different.
Harker has faced a variety of different foes in the previous stories, so I couldn’t think of what could possibly be next. Let me just say this. Somebody makes a deal with a devil and there are not any winners and angels have their own issues. The reoccurring characters, Quincy, Smith, Flynn, all continue to evolve with more and more being revealed. I was surprised at how little his Uncle was in this one. Not complaining because all I want Harker, Flynn and their banter, with an occasional interruption from Smith and their banter.
Hell Freezes Over does indeed have a slightly different feel. Don’t get excited, I do not mean this in a bad way. Here we have a series that is starting to grow up a little, yes just a little. What I mean is Hartness isn’t focusing on the crass humor to carry anything in the story. While it is there, and I do enjoy it, just not as in your face.
Hartness was able to expand on the paranormal world that lays just on fringes of the mortal world. I really think that he has only scratched the surface of the crazy adventures that Harker will find himself.
I continue to see great things on the horizon for this series and wonder how long Hartness can keep it going with a fresh new story each time.
James Foster has made Harker his. Foster is Harker. Plain and simple. He has changed his “normal” storytelling voice into something that almost doesn’t sound like him. Continuing to refine his gravely undertones. Coming up with entertaining voices for the demons and such. I really don’t think that anyone else could do better. And if it wasn’t Foster telling the story it wouldn’t be Quincy Harker.
