Publisher's Summary

Search or be destroyed. Hunting the Wild Hunt. Death is the welcome to Grestal.

Marcus Bola and his friends barely made it through their last self-imposed mission. He found and rescued his estranged son from the clutches of a Seelie drug cartel bent on taking over Columbus, but success means that they’ve proven their ability to get the job done.

Now tasked with retrieving the Huntsman's Mantle in hopes of giving the Wild Hunt new life, Marcus and his friends leave the High Table for Grestal, the birth place of nightmares. A double-shot of danger is added to this already-volatile cocktail as Marcus learns more about the world and his friends, while enemies start hunting them in return.

Luckily, he’s pretty handy with his magic - and a shaker.

Old-Fashioned Sequel

Great follow up to 'Galaxy'. The story progresses on well with a similar feel to the first but new a adventure and adversaries. It also continues to use the a GameLit leveling/progression element but doesn't get bogged down in stats and character sheet reviews that can make other GameLit/LitRPG books a slog.

I HIGHLY recommend.

For the narration you need to see that it was done by Christian J. Gilliland and Dansare Marks to know it's a great listen.

The urban fantasy takes a ride into the wild

A great second entry into this series. The last book, Galaxy, was solidly Urban Fantasy. Old-fashioned Huntsman takes the team into a "Journey to the Center of the Earth" kind of adventure in search of a powerful artifact called the Huntsman's Mantle. We find big magic, big creatures, entire civilizations existing inside a magical realm called Grestel that survives modern day, by consuming people who venture into it. Though Grestel is the least of their worries with people who would see them fail at every turn. A bit of a love triangle or poly relationship seems to be developing surrounding Marcus and the ties to Galaxy. I'm looking forward to the next adventure!

Let The Hunt Begin

Fantastic continuation to this story. The story is evolving perfectly for me and I cant wait for the next book! Im really enjoying how the team is growing stronger together. The "side" quests don't distract from the main story as many can, they simply help to tell the story and drive the team. Excellent book and narrators.

Chris keeps the quality high

if you enjoyed the first one, this is more of that and you will love it...
if you were on the fence after the first, give this a shot, now that the world is established Chris has time to work his storytelling magic even more

Quickly deteriorating!

I enjoyed the first book but not so much this one. the character has become very wooden and there was very little character development and complexity to the book. in no hurry to read the third.
