Best one yet.

I thoroughly enjoyed this edition of the series and thought it was the best one yet, though I still miss Jack!

So this one sees Sam and Callie called in by the church to investigate a missing girl and as Sam says "Vampires. They're everywhere. It's my job to stop them. A woman is missing. Hell, isn't there always? The church thinks a vampire is involved, but it's much worse than that. Much worse. Witches. Why did it have to be witches?" - Sam Harlan. Poor Sam has his work cut out for him when he realises that witches are involved and life is about to become way more complicated for him.

As I said, even though I miss Jack, I feel like Sam is finally becoming the strong character he needs to be. I connected with him a lot more here!! Callie meanwhile has her own troubles to deal with, but she still manages to keep her faith throughout. She really is one kick ass sister!!!

The plot was fast paced and intense. Sam and Callie are faced with a new threat with the witches and need to work quickly before it's too late for them. Sam might just need to call in The Sheriff to help! One thing I love about this series too, is what happens to the hunter who kills a vampire, it's unique and adds a little more suspense to the overall story. I feel like Sam is a ticking time bomb and I can't wait to read more!!

In all, this series surprised me a lot, with how much I enjoyed them. It's been too long since I've read a good Vampire story, and these ones are great. Bring on the next one!!!

David Loving was great in this one. He read this really well and his inflections brought the story to life.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Vampire hunter Sam Harlan at it again.

Here we have a glimpse in the life of vampire hunter Sam Harlan. In this episode Sam is set against witches and demons, which are quite outside of his normal purview. Sam and his Sister-partner Callie are sent by the church to find a missing girl. It is soon made clear that the situation is much more dangerous than thought to be. Sam is continually reminded that he knows little of the paranormal world, surviving by the skin of his teeth and the Grace of God. This is an exciting and fast-paced adventure, urging me to find the first two volumes to catch up on the action. Although this is book three of the series, and not having read the first two volumes, it was still able to stand on its own without much trouble. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Excellent supernatural action novel!

A Sam Harlan Novel, Book 3
By: Kevin Lee Swaim
Narrated by: David Loving
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I love this series! If you haven't read any of the other books you could probably read this and not get lost, the author catches you up but there might be spoilers.
This has vampires, witches, magic, suspense, terror, and lots of action! The characters are well developed and I love Sam, even if he is turning into a vampire, and his sister-in-law that is a nun. His writing draws you in and makes you feel like you are there, fighting along side him, and boy is that terrifying! Love this series so much!
The narrator is terrific! Clear voice and performs the voices perfectly. Keeps the mood and emotions flowing with the story! Wonderful!

A solid 3rd book in the series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The story line, as with the previous book in the series, is an interesting take on the vampire hunter genre. I thought the characters and dialog were engaging and the narration was good too. All in all, a very enjoyable book. I will definitely look to continue the series.

Vampire Hunter!

I have to say that I have not listened/read the previous books in this series. I did not realise when I picked this audiobook that it was third in the series. However, I felt that I did not miss anything from the previous book since the author explained things in this book, everything made sense.
This story was actually a lot more interesting then I expected. It reminded me a bit of the movie, the last witch hunter.
I really liked it and I would recommend it.
There is some profanity and violence.

A vampire hunter...

I wasn't sure at first but as the story continued I got more vested. The main caracter is a man with a vampire blood. He's not a vampire but would be if he died instead he has a cravin for meat and anger issues.

The story has plenty of plot twists yet is still easy to follow and intriguing. The characters are personable and some despicable. Its a great mystery that had me guessing all the way through.

Solid urban fantasy.

Damned Cold is a solid urban fantasy, but I must admit I had a bit of trouble deciding on a review score. In the end I decided to round up a bit. After all the issue I had with it was my own fault. You see I hadn't realized it was the third book in the series when I started listening, so I must confess I felt a bit lost as to who the characters were and what had befallen them in past volumes. That being said I the story itself is quite good and now I am interested in going back and checking out Sam's earlier adventures, which will likely make me appreciate this book more.

The book is narrated by David Loving. I've listened to a number of books he's narrated and must say he has a very distinct voice which I thought worked quite well for the genre.

Best so far

This series is getting better and better. Really enjoyed this story a lot, the author is really building a good mythos with plenty of action. Narration is perfect throughout.

Interesting story

This is the first book by Kevin Lee Swaim that I have read or listened to. It was enjoyable and kept me guessing as to what was going on. It had vampires, demons and religion and I had to play it all the way though at one time. I believe this is the third story with the character of Sam Harlan and now I need to read the first two. The narrator was very good and had a great voice for a story like this.

The continuing struggles of a vampire hunter

While this is the 3rd book in this series, they are all fairly self-contained, so while you might not know the back story of recurring characters you can still enjoy this book as if it was a standalone novel, but I would suggest reading/listening to the earlier ones in the series too since they are equally enjoyable.

This latest episode in the life of the vampire hunter, Sam Harlan, expands his knowledge of the supernatural world he has found himself in and once again frequently points out to him that he is generally outclassed physically by the supernatural entities that he encounters since he gets beaten up and/or knocked out quite frequently by vampires and worse. The author does a good job of conveying the sense of risk for the main characters and even some of the baddies have shades of grey to their motives.

The narrator does a good job with this novel, the main characters are suitably distinctive without seeming overdone or exaggerated and his pleasant overall tone should result in you finishing this book quite quickly in few sittings.

Overall, this was an enjoyable listen and a strong episode in a series that I am interested in seeing continue.

Damned cold

I found this story very dry.I also found that David Lovings narration was dry and monotone.The main characters were unlikable.I didn't read the first two books.Now I don't feel so bad about that.“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
