Quincy Harker is back, and the stakes are higher than ever. The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of a swearing, drinking, misanthropic half-vampire with a bad attitude and an itchy trigger finger. Harker and his team of misfits have just a few days to prevent the actual end of the world, as a group of fanatics have kidnapped a young man thought to possess the power to open the Seven Seals.

The thrilling sequel to Raising Hell brings even more action, more explosions, and more Renfield to readers.

Quincy Harker is still kicking-ass and taking…well, honestly he doesn’t care what your name is, if you’re a bad guy you’re going down. Usually with a lot of blood and screaming. In this second installment of the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter series we learn a bit more about Quincy and Detective Rebecca Gail Flynn’s backgrounds. The first chapter is the two of them trading barbs and “bonding” which kind of felt weird for this series, but at the end of the chapter they were off to guard a stoner college student who also happens to be The Lion of Judah—the one that can open the seven seals from Revelations.

Quincy, Flynn, Detective Smith, and the mysterious Renfield end up having to fight ninjas, a dragon (not really a dragon because “There is no such thing as a mother***** dragon!” and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

The story is fast paced with a ton of action squeezed into this novella, which makes for a quick and fun read. I really enjoy the voice the author gives Quincy Harker. Like I mentioned in my review of book 1, it has an action/ horror comic book feel to the story.

About the Author:
This is me, and this is where I write. I’m John “Falstaff” Hartness and I’ve been writing for years, for myself and for other people. Once upon a time I did a little gig for Turner Broadcasting as part of their My South ad campaign and that got me interested in writing fiction and poetry again. After writing a poker blog for several years, I’ve transitioned into writing fiction, and launched this site to be my internet home. This is where I try out new stories, new essays and poems, and post photos of some of the shows I’ve designed.

I grew up in Bullock Creek, South Carolina, the youngest of four kids. I’m a graduate of Winthrop Universty with a BA in Theatre Performance, and I live in Charlotte with my lovely wife Suzy. We’ve been active in the theatre community around Charlotte for years, and between us we’ve worked for almost every theatre group in town at some point. My work has primarily been as a lighting designer, but I've also directed quite a bit, done sound and set design, and even acted once in a while. But I’ve always wanted to write, and this site is where I do it. So welcome, thanks for stopping by.
