The Hunters of Gehenna navigate the wild, weird Crescent City nightlife in pursuit of an elusive killer. If they don’t take him down soon, he will collect on a demonic bounty and become a malevolent demigod! Enemies and danger await them around every corner, but the Hunters have no intention of backing down!
Will the Hunters survive a slug fest with demons and axe murderers? Why do vampires always act like jerks? Must they be perpetually annoyed by Mall Goths and Lestat wannabes? And where does Olivia keep that straight razor, anyway?
These questions and more will be answered in this, the third and final book in the Heaven nor Hell series! It begins as a death race and never stops picking up speed, until the final, shocking conclusion!
I have to admit how sad I am that this is the end of the series. I definitely was not ready to say goodbye, but that being said, what an ending it was! The author did not only pull everything together in a satisfactory way in regards to this arc of the characters’ lives, he also left the audience with a certainty about their future beyond what is written of them. Whether it is a good certainty or not- you’ll have to read to find out for yourself.
Just like its prequels, ‘Summon the Hunters’ is full of action, humor, adventure, and intrigue. The author has delivered another perfectly rounded story that completes a series I’ll be highly recommending to readers of fantasy, adventure, and action. I really believe that these books offer something to everyone, outside of those who are easily offended in a religious sense.
The faces of Clinton Love’s ‘Heaven Nor Hell’ series have not been anything less than interesting, but this installment seems to really give a look into their minds and personal experiences outside of each other. I am a complete sucker for character struggles: why they are the way they are, what makes them tick, what hardships they endure which others don’t see, and the true grain of their personality. This made the story just that much more endearing to me. It was nice to have these final bits of insight before everything closed.
Unsurprisingly, Leonard is a cambion of high values, putting himself on the line to lovingly care for his family and also show complete strangers respect. He’s physically powerful; emotionally patient. Olivia may come off as bubbly with an attitude- an unassuming danger- but her dark secrets will make you cry. Lastly, I’ll mention Quarinah even though there are many other things to say on this subject. It was the insight into her character that I really appreciated because there is a softness to her that isn’t seen- or rather, easily overlooked- in the series to this point, yet fits perfectly.
Since this is the last book, I’m being extra careful not to spoil anything. If you’ve gotten this far in the series, don’t hesitate to snatch this one up too! And if you haven’t read any of ‘Heaven Nor Hell’ yet, what are you waiting for?? What I will conclude with is to say again how much I adored the ending!
