    1. ● Chick-mance is Slightly Awesome and Paperclips are Somewhat Underrated Buddy Read (CiSAaPaSUBR™) with Nafeeza, Robin and Cathy ●✉ Personal, extremely private message to POTUS #45 that should have been: (view spoiler)[my dear Craig Schaefer, this has to stop now. I have read ALL your books. I have kinda sorta manically fangirled over rather enjoyed ALL your books. I have rated ALL your books either 4 or 5 stars. This is ridiculous, young man! You are killing my DNF stats! And don't get [...]

    2. "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 how much I like her or how strong of a character [...]

    3. 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 become top priority as its annual visit to the Re [...]

    4. “Let’s face it, Temple. In our line of work, clinical psychopathy is an asset.”The second book in Harmony series went quite quickly for me. Harmony and her great team are planning another great adventure. This time some space-stuff is (view spoiler)[falling from the sky. (hide spoiler)] *Lots of eye rolling* Oh come on space-stuff. I tolerate you just because of Harmony and her team! *Sighs* Ok Mr. Schaefer, I can suffer a little bit to have my playdate with Harmony :SThe phrase “Red Kni [...]

    5. *** 4.44 ***A buddy read with the UF fiends @ BB&B!!! We need to solve the little demon problem we seem to have. "“When you're part of an illegal government conspiracy, your actual job description gets hazy. [] If you're working off the books, but the books don't officially exist in the first place, have you really gone rogue, or are you just putting in unpaid overtime?” "This was very exciting, as most CS books have proven to be. I have come to enjoy his style of storytelling and love t [...]

    6. Q: When you’re part of an illegal government conspiracy, your actual job description gets hazy. For example, say you and your team take a few days of leave time and fly to Boston to hunt down the man who killed a fellow agent. If you’re working off the books, but the books don’t officially exist in the first place, have you really gone rogue, or are you just putting in unpaid overtime? (c)Q: “I don’t mind giving up my day in the sun so other people can have theirs.” I glanced sidelon [...]

    7. A buddy read with…. “Seriously,” he said. “I really want to know. Why don’t we get gadgets? This is some straight-up James Bond stuff.”Jessie snatched the pen out of his hand, tossing it over to me. “Because Jason Bourne can kick James Bond’s ass, little man, and that’s how we roll: car chases and parkour.”“Couldn’t we do car chases and parkour with gadgets?”So the series is named for Harmony Black and true this is all from her PoV but she is clearly not the star. No of [...]

    8. 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 was looking forward to giving his spin-off series st [...]

    9. 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-building could be a bit more detailed as well for me, bu [...]

    10. 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 Earth from a Cthulhu-esque entity from between rea [...]

    11. 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 humour.

    12. 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.

    13. 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 steady, loud and violent. Maybe not 100% logical but [...]

    14. “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 against supernatural villains. The second book continu [...]

    15. 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 a look into another character's past. Who it is, I [...]

    16. 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 plot.I have to say, I really like Harmony's chara [...]

    17. 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.

    18. 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 saddened by that. Hope to see more. LOVED THAT A MAJ [...]

    19. 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.

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

    21. 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 chase and kill the bad guys glory. Hugely fun but na [...]

    22. Scratching my head over this oneI 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 the Daniel Faust deja vue.The story like could have b [...]

    23. Ok seriously, this series is so SOLID. I, waiting for harmony to turn lesbian because Cody is ISo blah but other than that a plus even on a reread that was just so I could prep for the third book .

    24. Oh, boy, what a great book.I waited until today to start reading, because I knew I would not be able to put it down. I was right, once I started I was hooked for the entire ride.Exciting; thrilling; pace never slows; lots of things blow up in spectacular fashion; many, many feels; strong development on the characters; you know they have to make it but you just don't know how - This was a wonderful ride.Mr. Schaefer has left me with that impossible-to-scratch-itch of having to know what happens n [...]

    25. Loved itHarmony Black wasn't my favourite character by this author when she appeared in the Daniel Faust series, and even through book 1 of this series she still irritated me and it wasn't my favourite book by Mr Schaefer by far, but boy does this second book deliver the goods in spades and then some.The action never stops right from the start and whisks you all the way to the end without stopping to let you catch breath. The pace is superb, the characters unfolding and becoming more complex, sy [...]

    26. Red knight fallingCraig SchaeferI absolutely LOVED this book! I got the Kindle First for the first Harmony Black book and couldn't wait for the second one. Mr Schaefer comes through once again. A bit of Sci Fi, a bit of Paranormal, some sleuthing and maybe even a bit of Geek thrown in also! All in all a very interesting story. Harmony is a witch in the FBI and is now in a team called Vigilant Lock which is who they send when they have something, lets say, a bit far from the norm. This book is a [...]

    27. Another exciting installmentI got the first Harmony Black novel in January as part of the Kindle First offer. I loved that book, and was excited to see he had a new one coming out in April. I'm glad he writes so fast, because I love reading them. This book features the Vigilant Lock team in pursuit of a mysterious satellite that has attracted a ton of attention. Plenty of fun villains and magical action. Love this character and this series, can't wait for book 3!
