Publisher's Summary

John Wayne Cleaver hunts demons. They've killed his neighbors, his family, and the girl he loves, but in the end he's always won. Now he works for a secret government kill team, using his gift to hunt and kill as many monsters as he can...but the monsters have noticed, and the quiet game of cat and mouse is about to erupt into a full-scale supernatural war.
John doesn't want the life he's stuck with. He doesn't want the FBI bossing him around, he doesn't want his only friend imprisoned in a mental ward, and he doesn't want to face the terrifying cannibal who calls himself the Hunter. John doesn't want to kill people. But as the song says, you can't always get what you want. John has learned that the hard way; his clothes have the stains to prove it.
When John again faces evil, he'll know what he has to do.

Fantastic Book!

Dan Wells does a fantastic job of capturing the human condition, through the eyes of a sociopath, demons, and humans. All the joys and sorrows. All of this buried in a psychological mystery and thriller. Awesome!

Great start to a second trilogy

What did you love best about The Devil's Only Friend?

John is one of my favorite fictional characters of all time. His inner thoughts both terrify and entertain me.

What other book might you compare The Devil's Only Friend to and why?

Dexter for the serial killer with a conscious aspect. The Steelheart series by Brandon Sanderson for the team aspect of taking down supernatural forces.

What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

His reading of John is so spot on. The first books narrator is awful. The second I heard Kirby's voice I knew they had nailed it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

For sure! It is entertaining throughout and the mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Any additional comments?

I hope the producers of the audiobooks make a decision to go back and re-record the first book with Kirby as the narrator. That first book can be a chore to listen to because of how awful the narration was done.
