Publisher's Summary

Harmony Black is much more than your average FBI special agent. In addition to being a practicing witch, she's also an operative for Vigilant Lock, an off-the-books program created to battle occult threats - by any means necessary. Despite her dedication to fighting the monsters threatening society, Harmony has become deeply conflicted about her job. Her last investigation resulted in a pile of dead bodies, and she suspects the wrong people are being punished for it.

While on a much-needed vacation, Harmony gets pulled back into action. This time, though, she's gone from solo work to being part of a team. Their target: the Bogeyman, a vicious and elusive figure...and the creature that destroyed Harmony's childhood.

Surrounded by quirky, fascinating characters as dedicated to one another as they are to their new partner, Harmony must learn to trust her team - and a new romantic interest - on a dangerous and deadly mission that conjures up memories she'd much rather forget.

Good FBI crime novel

There are some paranormal/fantasy aspects to this novel, but they are not overwhelming. The narrator has an incredible voice range. Some listeners will likely feel she over performs. There are too many great audiobooks available to justify the time this one takes. NOT recommended!

An Truly Entertaining Story

I enjoyed the story highly. I also found narrator very good. Her take on the different characters was very interesting, especially Jessie. I look forward to the author's next one!

Couldn't listen to Jesse's voice

I just couldn't get past the performance of Jesse's voice, it just ruined the story for me. If you like magic and intrigue it's actually a pretty good story if you don't mind the performance.

best to just walk on by.

i hated harmony black in the faust series, a series which i loved. i actually came in trying to keep an open mind. this book has done nothing to help with that, though its helped the hate plenty.

in the faust series harmony black is a fucking moron who wastes peoples time and live, almost literally if she had been allowed to do what she wanted and thrown a bunch of men at a goddess to be hopped up on cancerous eden. and even worse she is suppose to be "the good guy" to counter fausts "villian" aspect. cept from what ive seen faust has done WAY more good then her, gotten more results, and been more effective with his rule breaking then her "strict following of proceedure" ... which she throws out the window in a hummingbirds heartbeat the moment she feels like it and is convinent for her. though not to actually help other people.

the other characters come off as bland or just loathesome, like her partner is an almost stereotypical sassy black woman who is an fbi agent with some wolf demon spirit thing, and a borderline psychopath and sadist. the other two team members are more bland then someone in a ketamine coma.

and for some reason we are suppose to beleive that harmony is just this so very empathic person that people just instantly like and trust, though there is nothing to show that.

its all some crap of "strong female character!" but it isnt. kaitlynn, jennifer, mama margu, pixie, and the others in the faust series are easily a thousand times the better character then the ones here, even if they are a demon enforcer, drug selling mafiaso kingpin, voodoo priestess from a very checkered past family, and a straight-edge tumblerina blackhat. even if you changed those aspects the characters are such they remain SFC, but harmony its all "oh yeah. she is totally a strong character" being repeated like the mst3k mantra.

its weird, but its almost like the book was written by someone else entirely, the story structures, character styles, and even world aspects being different then how they were in the faust books, someones shitty fan fiction that the author ghosting this out and going with the lowest bid that was submitted on an old stained napkin.

Empty

WALK AWAY!!! RUN AND FIND SOMETHING BETTER CONCEIVED TO READ! Sorry to the author but that's how I feel. Its not that the story isn't an OK one. Its just missing those things that help a reader be transported to the time and setting of the story. The author left out very important elements of narrating, descriptions. the is lots of words about how the character is feeling. But very little about the environment, area, scenes, and reasoning. without this, your left wondering what the point is and why the characters are doing what they do. She misses all of the lead story making you feel like your reading book2 instead of 1. And frankly it was boring. The reader has no investment, curiosity, or hope when reading this book.

Good work, but shitty character.

What would have made Harmony Black better?

Geee I dunno, make her pay for her dumbass naive view of the world that she doesn't grasp.

What could Craig Schaefer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not having dumbass character that throws away all the established knowledge from Faust series and rehashes everything with the most annoying stupid dumbass bitches of a characters. I wished and begged for Harmony and Jessie to die or get maimed by demon and things they don't understand.

What about Christina Traister’s performance did you like?

Realllly good. I usually don't like female VA doing male voice and vice versa, but her and Tess Irondale might be my new favorite female VA.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Great performance.

I am willing to chug through this dumbass's off shoot side storyline so I can get all I can with main series.

Any additional comments?

Fucking make all characters suffer for their stupidity.

Over the top

The narrator put way too much energy into the various voices. They were all too loud no matter what volume your device was set.
If it weren't for that it would have been enjoyable.

Entertaining Story, Reader too Stiff

Would you listen to Harmony Black again? Why?

I really enjoy Craig Schaefer's stories and enjoyed both reading and listening to the whole Daniel Faust series. I will read this, but probably won't give another listen. The reader has a nice voice, but she is just too stiff and lacks a natural flow and emotion. It feels like she is reading with her slow pronunciation of each word.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The reader sounds like she is reading and doesn't have a natural flow. Her reading just doesn't work for me even though she has a nice voice. It feels stiff and practiced.
