Book Tour: Nick Englebrecht Series by K.H. Koehler

Thanks for stopping by my tour stop for the  Nick Englebrecht series. This tour includes the first two books,  The Devil You Know and The Devil Dances by K.H. Koehler.  This is an adult Horror / Paranormal Mystery / Urban Fantasy. The tour runs April 14-18.  This book is recommended for 18+ due to content.  Check out the tour page  for the schedule and for more information.  

The Devil You Know (Nick Englebrecht #1) by K.H. Koehler

Not only does the Devil have an only begotten son, but he’s currently residing in the rural town of Blackwater in northeast Pennsylvania. Semi-retired from law enforcement, the handsome, if cynical, Nick Englebrecht becomes quickly caught up in a local missing child case that seems mundane on the outside, but when the sheriff requests his help as a psychic detective to help find the missing girl, his off-the-books investigation quickly leads him to some terrible truths about life, love and the universe as we know it. And if that isn’t bad enough, the angels have begun an ethnic cleansing of all beings with demonic blood. Of course, Nick is at the top of their to-do list.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had hoped for something that was different. Something that would grab my attention. I definitely wasn't disappointed.

Nick is quite a character and fun to read about. He seems too good a guy, for the most part, to be the son of the Devil. The other characters in the book are all interesting, but none so much as Nick.

I enjoyed the story as well as the characters. I can't go into it, as I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but there is much more going on than a simple missing child. With angels, demons, mythical creatures, and women thrown in the mix, of course Nick's life it a constant rollercoaster ride of action, danger, and sex. The book kept me hooked up to the last page, and I wanted more.

I recommend this to adult readers (due to sex, violence, and language) that enjoy mystery thrillers with an old school feel that mix in some supernatural elements.


The Devil Dances (Nick Englebrecht #2) by K.H. Koehler

You want to know something about me? Something important? When I was a kid, I used to read a lot of , I used to read a lot of comics. I watched all the TV shows. Hell, I wanted to be a superhero. Then one day I grew up, and I learned I wasn’t the Lone Ranger. I’m not Spider-Man or Captain-Fucking-Marvel. I’m not a good man, and I never will be. My name is Nicholas Englebrecht and I’m the heir to hell. I’m the Angel-breaker. I’m the goddamn son of the fucking devil and you should know that if you piss me off, things are going to go very bad for you…

Nick Englebrecht is lured to a strange, isolated Amish colony by the mysterious death of a nameless young man. It’s supposed to be a simple enough investigation. Find the kid’s family. Find out what happened to him. But when you’re the devil’s kid, with angels and demons gunning for you at every turn, things have a habit of turning bad fast. Before Nick knows it, he’s up to his ass in bodies, femme fatales, and ancient, bloodthirsty gods with a taste for human flesh.

My Review:

Nick is back and better than ever! Now he is in an Amish community to try to find answers, but only ends up finding more questions. It seems like for every good thing he does, multiple bad things happen. He is determined to find out the truth, and to help everyone that needs it.

 The action and mystery are even better than in the first book! There are so many twists that it never lets you feel like you know what will happen. Then, just when you do finally decide you know how it's all going to end, there's quite a surprise in store for you.

I recommend reading this, even if you haven't read the first one. I do think you'll enjoy it even more if you do read the first one though. As with the first book, I recommend it to adults due to language, violence, and sex.

I can't wait to see what happens with Nick in future books. I hope there are many more mysteries for him to solve.
