BOOK 5 in the Award-Winning Dark Fantasy Series takes us back to where it all began.

He's the immortal magic-wielding child of Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray from the classic novel Dracula. But to him it's not a story, it's family history. Quincy Harker is what you'd get if Constantine were renewed by HBO and taken to the darkest of dark sides. When things go bump in the

My original Heaven Sent audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

Quincy Harker is back. Again, and in the fifth installment, hard to believe we have traveled so far with everyones favorite demon hunting vampire hybrid.

This fifth book was fun. It could almost be considered a prequel, because it allows us to get to know certain characters better. Glory in particular, Harker's guardian angel. Heaven Sent is basically her backstory as far as Quincy is concerned. Additional

Quincy never disappoints!

When I first read a John Harness "Quincy Harker" book, I was completely caught up in this mysterious hero, raised by Dracula. Incredibly inventive idea, and one that packs quite a punch, too!

In "Heaven Sent" we finally get the story of how Quincy has a guardian angel, and what that may mean for the future. Stay tuned, sounds like it might get a bit bumpy from here on in!

Read the "Year Two" collection, and then had a chance to listen to the audiobook like I did with the first one. Once again, the guy reading it did a great job, performing the characters and not merely reading the text.

Good and quick story. These books are great for quick enjoyable reads.

By the end of the first chapter I was totally into the alternative reality. I love this series, and I'm glad that each book is novella sized or I'd never get anything done! This one is geared to half demons and their natural enemies the half angels. The publisher's blurb gives clues but can't begin to prepare you for all the puns, snarks, and action. No spoilers here, just admiration for the imagination of the author.

This is such a fun series. If you love action-packed dark edged urban fantasy with mystery, humor and a lot of foul language then check this one out. Don't worry too much about what order you read them in. Each novella is a full start to finish mystery. There are a few series arc threads, but Hartness does a good job of cluing you in so you don't feel lost. And the stories can be read in one sitting. He is a regular wham-bam-thank-you-ma'ma writer that will leave you satisfied. Lots of bang for ...more

Being a massive fan of this series since book 1, I was thrilled to be able to listen to this one, which I received from the narrator, for free, via Audiobook boom (This in NO way affected or influenced my thoughts.). In this edition we get to learn how Harker gets together with Glory, which I loved learning about because I was always curious to see when she first appeared to him. This one also deals with Harker trying to find out who is murdering Nephilim and why.

It's hard to expand on the plot

As far as prequels go, this one was okay, but it suffers from the same problems as most prequels... I don't care!

In my mind, one of the key elements of a good story is that everything I read should be moving the story forward. It's what keeps up pace and intrigue, as well as keeps the reader invested in moving towards the eventual ending.

By its very definition, a prequel does the opposite as it actually moves the story backwards by exploring events before the beginning. Usually, prequels are ju

Thank you, Mr. Hartness, thank you! I have been waiting for the story of how Glory and Q met. And what a story you delivered, just breathtaking in pace and character. I have loved the Harker novellas since the first one. Now here at number 5, the writing continues to be excellent, the plot exciting and the characters true to themselves. The Harker universe is so heavy wiith potential that there should be no end to the series.

For those that are not familiar with Quincy Harker, get thee to a copy

Very entertaining, engaging, well written and enjoyable listen. Another great addition to the series. You know as soon as you start listening that your in for one heck of an fun and enjoyable story. My only complaint is that it was to short. All of his stories pull you right in and before you know it they are over and you still want more. For a shorter book though, as usual it is full of mystery, suspense, humor and full of action. The whole series is definitely worth the listen

Great characters

Hilarious, action packed, awesomness.

This series is awesome. I wish they were maybe longer (like full length novel size), but the humor, fast pace, and characters are all done extremely well, and while the shorter length might cut down on long winded detail and larger back stories for the characters, overall I never feel the books lose anything for that shorter length. Anyone who like sarcasm, urban fantasy, action, sense of humor, and a strong group of main characters need look no forward. And

This was the first book in the series from this writer that I’ve read. It was worth the read.

I love the Buffy the vampire slayer and ACDC PUNs, the fast action and the magic use.
I like the almost classic Gumshoe vibe, and updated demon hunter humor.

Its really well done and I love the reader, from just reading this I am more then interested in reading the other books in the series.
I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Quincy vs Demons with an Angel to supervise

Even as old as Quincy is, he still gets to learn a few new tricks in this book. He has to stop the world ending, again. He has to stop demons, again. Only thing different this time, is that he's dealing with hybrids that are way above his pay grade.

Too much explanation in this one. I get it's a set up for the next book and a groundwork prequel to get more in depth, but, the sauce was a bit spoiled, here. Even Glory isn't really as Glory-ish in this one; hoping the set up for book six makes it worth it in the long game.

I LOVE the Quincy Harker books. This one did not disappoint. John Hartness did it again. Can't wait for more!

Not as good as the previous 4 novellas, mainly because of this final sentence:

This is definitely not The End.

Now I need the next one ^^

This is another good novella in a darker series. This one was out of order chronologically which threw me for a bit of a loop at first but was still good.

Okay, again it's perfection. As a smartmouth myself, I love Quincy's style. If you like supernatural with a little crime drama thrown in, these are awesome!!

John G. Hartness is a teller of tales, a righter of wrong, defender of ladies’ virtues, and some people call him Maurice, for he speaks of the pompatus of love.

He is also the award-winning author of the urban fantasy series The Black Knight Chronicles (Bell Bridge Books), the Bubba the Monster Hunter comedic horror series, the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter dark fantasy series, and many other projec
