  1. Great job. More please. Nice to read a story with a protagonist who’s got contemporary life experience to mine. Semper Fi, Yancey.

  2. Loved the book – I’d like to know when you plan to release the next book in the series. thank you. *mwl

  3. Mr. Hunter I just finished “Strange Magic” it’s the best detective/mage book I’ve read in a long while & I really appreciate your respect for God.

  4. You and Kevin Hearne should hook up and have a love child or the sand man slim guy… great dark sense of humour alike…. keep up the good work!!

  5. I always enjoy the “anti-hero” … the guy who is aware of his own mortality..but doggone if he won’t do the right thing anyway. Served with a bunch of guys like that in ‘Corps. Semper Fi Yancy!!!

  6. Loved the story with Yancy. He’s my kinda guy. He loves awesome ribs, jammin’ smoky blues, cold beer, poker, and let’s not forget he’s also a gifted mage. He can hang with me anytime.

  7. Dude…everything that is good and right with your genre is wrapped up in Strange Magic. Can’t wait for more! Thank you and standing by.

  8. Hello,
    I just wanted to say thank you. I was 1 winner of a free copy of your 2nd book, Cold Hearted. Just wanted to say that I loved it & am eagerly waiting for the next book in the series. Keep up the great work!

  9. I enjoyed your book. Am looking forward to more from you. About that volcano, don’t trip on the tip!

  10. Kudos James. Your writing is tightening up without seeming too toutered. If you get me. Almost done with Lucky Stiff. It goes to the publisher this fall.

    1. Thanks Robert, I’m glad you enjoyed this one. Strange Magic was good, but I feel like each work I put out is a little stronger than the last.

      1. That is because you are becoming a part of the world you create. You are beginning to recognize the voice of your c g aracters, their personalities and their idiocincratic ways. Only a series author can relate that way.

  11. I am a huge fan of your work. I couldn’t put it down. I was wondering if you have read much Simon R Green because your work reminds me of his, but in a way that he just wishes he could write. Love it. Keep up the great work. Keep Yancy coming. He is a great character. Go Viz!

    1. Craig,
      Thanks for the comment. I’m glad you’re enjoying the books–I’ve got a third full length Yancy novel coming out in the beginning of November. I have read Simon Green’s the Nightside Series, and I will admit those books certainly had an impact on me as a reader and writer. Thanks again for reading, and please feel free to drop me a line anytime.

  12. Hi, I really liked the look of your books on goodreads and wanted to buy them. I don’t read on a kindle and don’t like buying from amazon. I have looked around but I can’t seem to find anywhere that sells it in an epub format? I may have just been a crap googler but if not, would you be willing/able to sell your book on a site like Smashwords which can sell your book in a variety of formats, including epub? Thanks 🙂

    1. Thanks for the comment. Right now my books are exclusively listed on Amazon, for various reasons, though it is possible that may change in the future. As for now, I plan to keep my books n KDP Select, but if you care to drop me a line, I’d be more than happy to send you a free “review” copy in epub format. Thanks again.

  13. Hi James,
    I just wanted to let you know you have a new fan. I acquired Strange Magic in paperback one day, sat it on the top of my “To Read” pile, then promptly forgot about it. A few weeks later I found your books on Amazon. I bought a couple because they sounded interesting. They ended up in my kindle “To Read” pile where I again forgot about them. (You can see the pattern emerging. It isn’t your books that make me forget about them. It’s the fact that I am easily distracted and life likes to stay too busy.)
    Then one day I came across your free story Siren’s Song. I was sick and not going anywhere, so I finally read it. It was great. The kind of great where I immediately wanted more and to force my best friend to read them too. I went to buy a couple on Amazon but discovered I already owned them.
    Your books caught my attention so much it turns out that I have like three copies of Strange Magic. I will be handing one off to my friend soon. I am certain that by the time she is done you will have another fan in her as well.

  14. Great book. I’m a big fan of urban fantasy and Yancy is right up there with Dresden. Thank God ther is a book coming out next month. Sometimes the good-guy doesn’t seem like the good guy. Least of all to himself.

  15. I found this book to be exceptional I seriously can get into the character that Yancy represents the stories were well written and the stories flowed couldd’t stop reading till I finished once started. It’s been a while since I’ve been drawn into a series so thoroughly thanks for the great read looking forward to more of Yancy blues ass kicking and takin names!

  16. Excellent read, Yancy has a Harry Dresden flare with a “kiss my a$$” kind of personality, that would be me if I could fling power around like that. Please keep him alive, always love a good book!

  17. Let’s see… (1) One star for having a lead character who is a former Marine. Semper Fidelis! (2) Another for making him my kinda guy;i.e. – He smokes, drinks, plays guitar, and loves to hang out at places where the same are not frowned upon but encouraged. (3) He’s got a snarky sense of humor, also like me (4) The writing was not only enthralling, but it introduced us to a mage who was neither down on God, nor unbelievably all-powerful like a god (5) The Writer avoided using the usual gimmicks to fill-up a book to make it appear bigger than it really is. It’s all good story-telling, with no fluff or fill.

    Such will be my Amazon review. Keep up the great work!

  18. I really enjoyed listening to the first 2 Yancy Lazarus books. The third book is out, and I purchased the ebook from Amazon, but I would prefer to listen to the book. Do you know when the #3 will be released as audio?
    PS Thanks for the hours of listening pleasure.

    1. I’m sorry Wendigo Rising isn’t out in audio yet–my narrator had another job, so wasn’t available for several months. He’ll be starting production in the early-April and it should take a month and a half or so. Sorry about the wait, but thanks for reading/listening.

      1. Hi, any update on when this will be out on audio? I commute 3.5 hours/day, no time to read. Thanks

        1. Hilary,
          Hey thanks for stopping by. Turns out, you are in luck. The audio version of MudMan just hit shelves this week and Wendigo Rising should be out within two weeks. Check your email–I’m sending over a promo code for a free copy of MudMan.

  19. i really enjoyed the first two yancy lazarus books. i can’t wait until the rest of the series is in audio format. being a disabled vet that is paralysed i am unable to read a normal book. the yancy series is probably the best series i’ve started since the dresiden book series, and sandman slim series. do you have any idea when the rest of this series will be out in audio format?

    1. First, Ronald, thank you for your service. Seriously, from one vet to another. Second, thank you for reading and for taking the time to reach our and contact me–as an author, it’s always a big encouragement to hear from folks who dig what I’m doing. As to your question, the third book, Wendigo Rising, is in production and, hopefully, should be ready within two months. Once book four is done, I’ll have the narrator start working on it ASAP. The novellas, however, won’t be released in audio until all four “flashback” stories are finished and out–at that point I’ll release one big “flashback” audiobook. Thanks again.

  20. Oh my goodness…. Just discovered you this weekend and devoured allllll the books. I need more Yancy/Levi in my life… signed up to hear more about release dates etc. Write faster g’dmmit. 😉

    1. Totally working on it ASAP. And you, Rebecca, shall be the first to know. Also, if you’re really into and don’t mind a few typos, consider being a beta reader (check out Read for Free).

  21. OK James, Ive read all your books and I can honestly say I’m impressed! Great stories,characters and the interwoven fae Facts also fit.Great work. I also commend your choice of weapons, although (being an old ex-Brit Army grunt) I would rather use my old Fairbairn-Sykes Commando Dagger than the K-Bar! Keep up the good work please.

  22. Love, love love Yancy! And Im all caught up! Any idea when the next book will be out?? I’m waiting with bated breath!.lol. I’ll catch your other series’ while I wait!
    Your books are awesome… Thanks so much!

    1. Beverly,
      Thanks so much for reading! If you haven’t caught the newest novella, Flashback: The Morrigan, that drops tomorrow. I’m working on the next full-length Lazarus novel now, Savage Prophet, but it’s still several months away from completion. I’m working on it though and since you’re on my mailing list, I’ll be sure to let you know when it hits shelves. Thanks again for reading.

  23. I’m old and hard to entertain. I loved my first introduction to Lazarus. You rock!

  24. Hi James. I love these books. Read the first two, and am hoping for more. ☺. The stories are multi-layered, the characters somewhat flawed, human. Awesome. I’ve found myself sitting up and reading when I should be sleeping. Only the really good books get me into that mode.

  25. loved this book, just my cup of tea. Lets have more, could not leave review on amazon us, for some reason!

  26. Just read Viridian Gate Online and I absolutely loved it, I love the Litrpg genre and you are doing everything right with it, hopefully you continue this book I’ll look for it on Amazon to purchase.

  27. Really liked the book,(VGO), read it straight through.
    Don’t know if it would work out with what you have planned, what about a hidden part of the class kit requiring rune crafting?

      1. Nice one, looking forward to it mate.

        ps.left you 5 stars on audible for the first one, keep up the good work.

  28. Really enjoyed the first two books.
    -Diverse characters
    -Female potential romantic interest NOT a Barbie doll & had positive self image, didn’t remake herself into a Barbie doll in VR, was happy with who she was.
    – Female character smart, strong but has moments of weaknesses and vulnerability not perfect.
    – Moral & Ethical questions, plenty of hard choices.
    – Commentary on wealth, power, entitlement, freedoms
    – Appreciation for flawed but well intended father
    – Turing test, what makes us human questions
    – More mature characters, less/none teenage angst
    A lot more here than I expected.

    Well done!

    Book 3? I see it listed but can’t find on amazon.

    BTW – Excellent performance in book 1 audio book!

    1. Thank you so much–this is a really thoughtful comment and much appreciated. Book three is at the editor now, and if you liked 1 and 2, you should enjoy 3 as well.

  29. Make more books from Jack’s pov, a continuation series of sorts, please. I love the series and hate to see it end.

  30. After playing FFXI for over a decade and being lucky enough to meet my wife of seven years now in game, it is great to take a walk through your stories with the same epic tales and perfect visualization of the world you have created. From a serious mmo player that started with DnD thanks for the ride.
