Awesome female role model

Jo is an incredible woman. She has no magical power but she is a powerhouse nonetheless. This story is woven in Quincy Harker's world, but Jo is no Quincy. She's a mom and she doesn't cuss unless she has to. She's John Henry's great grand-daughter and I can't wait to hear more of her in future stories.

Calling All Angels takes place in the same universe as the Quincy Harker Demon Hunter Novellas.

A new year, a new four-novella group for Quincy Harker, only this year (year 3) introduces the Shadow Council. First up, Joanna Harrison.

I was not expecting that. I'm so used to Mr. Hartness strong large male bachelor characters, I did not expect a female to be a POV character with a child. Yet it works, very, very well.

Joanna inherited the hammer from her great-great John Henry with a couple twists passing the hammer down the woman line, giving her the last name Harrison, but most of the old m

Jo Henry is given an assignment by Quincy Harker: find Michael the Archangel and get him back in the game. So she works nights in illegal Mixed Martial Arts cage matches in order to find him, but when she does, he doesn't remember being an angel at all, even when she gets him to hold his sword and it bursts into flame! Lots of action and a couple of disgusting demons. Just exactly what I expect from a Hartness book!
The audio narration is aced by James Anderson Foster.

A great installment in the Harkerverse

Now that author John Hartness is writing novellas about other characters entwined with Quincy Harker I think it's ok to refer to the Harkerverse. I thoroughly enjoy these books and this was no different. I also enjoyed being able to get a different character perspective in the form of Jo Henry. I think what the author has planned for this phase of story telling is going to be exciting and mind blowing. I can't wait to read what's next.

Year three kicks off with no Quincy Harker, as Jo Harrison takes centre stage. The quest to restore Glory's wings begins with finding the archangels. Nice book, but Harker is the star and something is missing without him! ...more

Jo Henry kicks demon butt

I loved reading about this fascinating character from Quincy Harker's adventures. I especially liked Jo's relationships with her mother and daughter preventing the character from being another one-dimensional action hero.
