Critic Reviews

"Narrator R.C. Bray lends his expertise to this darker entry in the Valducan series, which features demon-hunting knights in New Orleans. Bray's deep voice and rich accent suit voodoo practitioner Malcolm exceptionally well." ( AudioFile)

Action packed and thought provoking

Hounacier, the second book in the Valducan series and the sequel to Seth Skorkowsky's Damoren, deals with the weilder of the demon slaying machete Hounacier, Malcolm Romero. After the murder of his mentor, the previous wielder of Hounacier, Malcolm returns to New Orleans to try and find the killer. He is instead drawn into his old life, a life filled with Loa, with voodooo priests and priestesses, where magic is real, and where a plot to have revenge against the wielders of Hounacier has Malcolms life and very soul, as well as Hounacier, in jeopardy. With a fast paced plot, exotic locations, really engaging characters and a villain that has a sympathetic reason for being that way, Mr. Skorkowsky has really taken this series to new levels, especially after the excellent work in Damoren. Any fan of Urban Fantasy should get a copy. This is as good as anything written by Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green or Tim Marquitz, who are some of my favorite urban fantasy authors. As far as narration, R.C. Bray does his usual spectacular job, breathing life into an already rich book. I anxiously await the third book.

R. C. Bray's Narration Is Audible Chocolate

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. I recommended Damoren (Valducan, Book 1) to several friends of mine and 2 out of 3 of them ended up preordering Hounacier as I did. The remaining friend did not, however, only becuase he can't listen to R. C. Bray narration again until he gets his diabetes under control again (it's an audible chocolate thing).

Who was your favorite character and why?

Malcolm is an absolute BOSS because he was a one man recking crew with few allies to support him

What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

Spectacular. I have no doubt R. C. Bray's narration of Hounacier will score yet another Audie nomination for Skorkowsky's Valducan series.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

no spoilers

Any additional comments?

Keep em' coming Skorkowsky!

Best one out of a great series

Amazing book!
If you like monsters and voodoo and all that supernatural hunter badass stuff this book will not disappoint.

Story, SOLID. Ties in perfectly with the first one and carry on the story beautifully.

Narration. RC Bray is one of the best narrators out there and this is another example of his superior ability.

I would recommend to anyone who
- like the first one
- thought the first one was okay but not sure about continuing the series... take the leap of faith and listen.
- likes the monsters and paranormal genre
- like a bad ass Haitian man killing monsters like a baaaaadassss.

A fantastic followup

Seth immediately grabbed me with is first book, dämoren. So I eagerly purchased Hounacier and it didn't disappoint.

Hounacier follows Malcom Romero, a supporting character from the first book. Someone who was quite unlikable in dämoren due to his animosity to Mathew, the protagonist.

in this book he is fleshed out, becomes much more likeable and developed whilst maintaining the impression of badassary he oozed in the first book.

this book isn't quite as deep as the first one, as the air of mystery isn't quite as thick. But the book is still fascinating, shedding light on different aspects of the mythos not explored in the first book.

on a final note. the book is visceral, downright terrifying I'm some of its descriptions. Seth doesn't hold back; a demon werewolf treats a child pretty much how you'd expect it to. with no censorship.
