We first meet Malcom Romero, wielder of the holy weapon Hounacier, in the first book of the series, Damoren. While Damoren follows the demon hunter Matt Hollis as he is drawn in to joining the Valducans, a holy order of Demon Hunters, in order to protect the remaining holy weapons from a plot to destroy them all, Hounacier follows Malcom and gives us a glimpse into his past, and how he came to be bonded with Hounacier.
In Hounacier, Malcom travels back to his home of New Orleans after the death of his mentor. In his quest to unearth the truth of what happened Malcom finds himself not only as the hunted enemy, but alone, unable to draw on the strength of his friends, team,or the people around him. We learn about Malcom and Hounacier, we get a glimpse into the world of Voodoo, and most importantly we learn about the events that made Malcom the man he is. As in the first book, we learn even more about the many different types of Demons, their powers, and their weaknesses while...
I had more fun reading this than anything else I've read in recent memory. What I expected going in was a rehash of book one in the Valducan series. What I got was a great stand-alone novel in the Valducan world.
Author, Seth Skorkowsky has come up with a winning formula featuring the Valducan, a group of demon-hunting knights who find and keep track of all holy weapons and whose library of demon species and lore is massive.
Whereas book one dealt with the weapon Dämoren, book two focuses on Hounacier. Given there are dozens of such weapons, Skorkowsky could work in this world for some time to come. Truth be told, I'd be quite happy if that was the case.
Like it's predecessor, Hounancier, is fast-paced,filled with monsters and monster hunters, and gets to the action from the very beginning, barely allowing the reader a chance to catch a breath. Unlike the first book, there is a very big twist halfway through. Not gonna...
Excellent follow up to Damoren, the first book in the Valducan series. Fast paced, action packed and fascinating. The first book was, necessarily, more broad, as it had to introduce and define the Valducan universe and populate it. The second book is much more personal, told from the point of view of one of the Knights and explores the nature of the holy weapons to their respective holders, as well as providing an immersing look at what possession by the demonic creatures is like. The voodoo aspects of this particular weapon, Hounacier, were fascinating and it was obvious that Mr. Skorkowsky has done thorough research into the religion and its practice in both Haiti and New Orleans. All in all, a solid, engrossing and, most importantly, fun read. Highly recommended.
