    "I don't like it," I said."Don't like what?" Jessie asked. "Messing with demons? 'Cause I love it."3.5 starsThis one has Vigilant Lock pursuing a fallen satellite that might be attached to some weird being who wants to take over the world and kill everyone. You know, a real bad guy. Well, not a "guy," more like a multi-dimensional powerful godlike being. You say tomay-to, I say tomah-to.Jessie shines in this one. I'm still not sold on Harmony and...

    This second book in the Harmony Black series was every bit as enjoyable as the first. It was packed with the exact same mix of action, humour, likeable characters, and engaging plot that I've come to expect from a Craig Schaefer book.Harmony and her Vigilant Lock team were back with a new mission: saving the world! This time the threat was a vast supernatural entity that is drawn annually to the Red Knight, an orbiting satellite. The creature has...

    4 StarsCraig Schaefer delivers again. I’ve now read 7 books that he has written and they have all been consistently entertaining. Red Knight Falling picks up not long after the end of the last book. Harmony and the rest of the team are given a new mission of the highest priority. A satellite, somehow linked to a powerful hostile entity, is falling to Earth and Vigilant Lock is tasked with recovering the downed satellite. They aren’t the only ...
  • Carol.
    Urban fantasy often falls into what I think of as 'gym reads.' They tend to be light-weight philosophically, action-focused with streamlined writing. Good gym reads are well written enough that they don't remind me I'm pedaling or stepping away in repetitive motion, and great ones may even get me working harder with adrenaline, or keep me on the machine longer than I planned. Schaefer's Daniel Faust series is definitely one of the latter, so I wa...

    2/20/17 Buddy Read with my fellow demon lovers hunters over @ BB&B!
  • Cathy (cathepsut)
    I am a little undecided, if I liked the story more or less than that of the first book. The first book was more classic horror setting, while the second one was a bit more sci-fi. And then straight police procedural/thriller with supernatural elements thrown in. It's done well and the supernatural merges smoothly with the rest. It doesn't just feel like an afterthought or a little add-on. Could be more of it though, for my taste. The world-buildi...

    Harmony Black is back. Fresh off of foiling a supernatural entity that preyed on children in her home town, Special Agent Black finds herself and her team assigned to confront a threat far greater. A mysterious satellite - the Red Knight - is in a steadily decaying orbit and will crash down to Earth in weeks - if not days.Recovering a sattelite should be no problem, right? Well, unfortunately, this satellite has an occult purpose. It shields the ...

    This series just keeps getting better!Red Knight Falling was about a mysterious satellite that is falling back to Earth. Well, have no fear guys because Harmony and her team are on this shit. Well.. once they figure out what the hell they are looking for and why the hell they are looking for it. Oh, and just to make it even more exciting.. there are other people looking for this thing as well. I love Harmony so much! Her friendship with Jesse bas...
  • Steve
    Another solid entry in the Harmony Black series. And of course, it ends on a cliffhanger, prepping the way for the next book in this story arc.

    “Red Knight Falling” is the second in the Harmony Black series, and continues the story of the black ops team “Vigilant Lock” as the team struggles to save the world from occult forces. In this case, saving the world is literal, not figurative!Harmony Black was initially a character in another of author Craig Schaefer’s series, and the first “Harmony Black” book brought her onto a secret government team (Vigilant Lock) to fight agai...

    Harmony Black is back. There’s little rest for the Vigilant Lock, a secret op created to deal with occult threats. As usually things go off the rails and a simple side-job turns into saving the world kind of job. Team members must recover the Red Knight satellite that seems to attract a hostile unknown entity. The thing is there’s more than one group of people interested in the satellite and its content. Mayhem follows.As usually action is st...

    5 Stars Red Knight Falling Harmony Black #2 by Craig Schaefer is the second book in a series that is tailor made for my likes. I cannot get enough urban fantasy detective stories these days and Harmony Black strikes all the right chords.This book are has hot FBI lead agents. Paranormal story lines. A witch or two. A sleeping beast. Demons and things that go bump in the night. And what makes this one so freaking fun is it is a story about a beast ...

    Full review over at Fantasy Book CriticOVERVIEW/ANALYSIS: Red Knight Falling is the second volume in the Harmony Black series and chronologically takes place after the events of book 1 (Harmony Black) and The Killing Floor Blues. The previous book focused on Harmony and at the same time did an admirable job of setting up the series while also giving us a detailed look into Harmony's past. This book the author decides to switch it up and gives us ...
  • T. K. Elliott (Tiffany)
    This is the second book in the Harmony Black series, and pretty much seals Craig Schaefer as an author I'm going to carry on reading. In Book 1 (Harmony Black), Schaefer introduces Harmony properly (she's a side-character in Schaefer's Daniel Faust series) and also the Vigilant Lock black-ops FBI team. In Red Knight Falling, he expands Harmony's world and introduces what is probably going to be a multi-book story arc in addition to the Red Knight...

    3.5*If I’d rated this book before reading the next one - it would be 3*, so my genuine advice is to read #2 and #3 back to back. I still had fun but the mystery is less interesting and engaging than in the first book. Also we are introduced to so many new secret government organisations, occult groups and power players – it spreads attention thin and diminishes the suspense. This does pay off in the following book. And there is some nice humo...

    1. More than a decent book, enjoyed it.2. Stopping here The third book promises antagonists with amplified abilities and significantly increased demand for torture /pain. There was enough torture and evil in this book. Concerned with sliding more into horror as time goes on - it's not my idea of an entertaining read although there are many who love it. If you don't mind dark aspects getting darker with each book, this series is one for you.

    3.75 stars Mini Review: KEVIN!!! Kevin is a tenacious little adorable bastard. Basically, I approve and am crushing on a nerdy fictional character. Jessie, still as maniacal and hyper as ever. She's got innuendos for days and is a little bit of a murdering machine, but like, I love it??? Harmony, yaassss girl, getting fast and loose with the law, scheming and conjuring up storms. Still a bit uptight, but I'm enjoying it. Not much of April, bit sa...
  • Steffan
    4.25/5 starsI liked this book a little less than the first one. In this book, one of my least favorite traits of Craig Schaefer's writing reared it's ugly head. Craig Schaefer has a tendency to add new plots and antagonists without resolving previously added plots and villian's. It gets tiresome to read about villians getting away over and over again while new ones are continuously added. This is also a problem in his Daniel Faust series as well ...
  • Ann
    After thoroughly enjoying the book Harmony Black I was eager to read the next book, which is as good if not better. If you like some magic, lots of action and fast furious investigations similar to those of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden, you'll love this series too.

    Action, adventure and lots of danger. Harmony Black is one kick ass witch. This series is grade A. More review later......

    This second book in the series had an interesting premise: a mysterious satellite that predates all known human satellites is falling back to Earth. While the "Red Knight" was in orbit it appeared to attract the annual notice of something in space - something big and angry looking. Harmony and her team must find the satellite when it crashes to Earth and figure out what that big, angry something looking for it is and how to get rid of it. Problem...
  • Sarah Leenart
    I loved this just as much as the first one and have already pre ordered the next in series. This combines everything I love in a novel, kick ass action, tons of supernatural, mystery, chase, police procedural (all be it off the record :-)) and a slight hint of romance with likeable and complicated characters. There was a cinematic feel to this book, I could almost see it race across the big screen in front of me in all it's blow things up, car ch...
  • Tami
    Scratching my head over this one...I really liked Harmony when she was first introduced.I think the strange suit and tie thing didn't really work well, but was willing to overlook it.Now I feel like she completely lost her voice. She morphed into a strange protag between Daniel Faust, some unknown law enforcement and someone totaly non-descript.She was a by-the-book kind of character. After one and a half stories, she starts to cut corners.Hence ...
