This is a great series

Mark Talon, ex Delta Force soldier, returns for another adventure. Now he has an outlet for revenge on the forces that destroyed his future wife. He makes it his life mission to extinguish all similar evil forces so he can let loose all of his aggression for one goal, vengeance.

This is a great series and if you haven’t listened to Damnation Code, the first book. You really do not need to, this one could stand alone if you wanted it to. However, I always recommend starting at the beginning with any series.

The summary gives a pretty good rundown of the plot for this one and because the audiobook is comparatively very short, I will not add anything as I do not want to give anything away.

I will say this. Fans of military paranormal thrillers will love this book. Very fast paced with tons of action. Only a few slow spots, spent character building, and they are brief. Massa does a great job of not over explaining anything or over introducing anyone. The characters are not excessively constructed, sure some may seem two dimensional and shallow, but that is half of the fun! He seems to know that this story is supposed to be fun and overdoing either of those would only drag the story down.

I will keep with this series because I really enjoy the lightheartedness that Massa keeps with. No nonsense, in your face, one man against black magic. You want a fun quick listen get this series.

Once again James Foster delivers a solid performance, which, after listening to many of his works, I expect nothing less from him. Even though I have created such high standards for him, he doesn’t disappoint.

An amazing second book.

Any additional comments?

I loved book 1 of this but I have to say that this one was even better! It blew me away. The summary is spot on so let's get to my thoughts.

Talon is back and more composed and able to do his job better. In book 1 he was learning the ropes but here he knows what to do so we see more action from him plus he has a benefactor so there is more weaponry and knowledge.

This brought more emotions to the surface while reading, for me anyway. I felt so sorry for Nicole when she was young, but even more so now because she knows what to expect. I find possession stories to be so extremely scary and this is no different. The idea of a thing being inside you is just so shudder inducing that I was holding my breath at those scenes. Then the author adds in twist after twist and I was left reeling.

Once again, this is high octane action and adventure. Once I started I couldn't stop and listened to it in a day again. It has everything a great book needs and more. This book is pure entertainment and I could see it as a mini series cause it's that good.

In all, a stellar second book. I loved everything about it and will definitely be keeping my eye on this author. Bring on more Talon and co!!!!!

Once again, James Foster gave a flawless performance. He really knows how to bring the listener into the story and keep their attention throughout. Definitely a narrator that delivers all the time.
