Eleven years ago atheist Malcolm Romero met a god. Now he's a demon-hunting voodoo priest armed with a holy machete named Hounacier. After the murder of his mentor, he returns to New Orleans to catch the killer. But more is at stake when Malcolm finds himself betrayed and his holy blade stolen. Now Malcolm's only hope to save his soul and to recover Hounacier is the Valducan knight sent to kill him, Matt Hollis, the wielder of the holy revolver Dämoren.


What the Critics Say

"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!
