About the Book
Title: Hunted: A Jonathan Harker Novel
Author: Christopher Draven
Genre: Paranormal Thriller / Urban Fantasy
Slinging Spells with Broken Ribs Isn’t Easy
Jonathan Harker, mage and life-long demon hunter, wakes to find himself tied to a chair and severely wounded. His captor, a demon in service to a summoner who wants Harker alive.
Armed with impossibly powerful magic and a gang of demon toughs, the summoner has snared Harker in a deadly trap. Nothing is ever easy, and being new in town has left Harker with few allies. However, with help from a Fortune-Teller named Clover and a self-described “Kitchen Witch” named Momma Dee, Harker fights back.
To prevail, Harker must walk unprepared into a pit of demons and black magic – and come out alive on the other side.
I was so surprised to pick up a book noted as a Paranormal Thriller/Urban Fantasy and find myself properly belly laughing at times! The humour in this story is brilliant!
Johnathan Harker is an interesting protagonist with sarcasm, wit, and tenacity you can help but warm to him. The author is a great character builder not just Jonathan but the other characters in the book.
It is fast pace and just labelling it a thriller doesn’t do it justice I loved how the author wove elements of mystery, suspense and a touch of romance instead. This is a very different story to others I have read in this genre and a story that I have no doubt will propel this author into the spotlight!
I can’t wait to see the next installment
