"A war is brewing between angels and demons in this twisty, fast-paced, and thoroughly enjoyable urban fantasy debut... Sam is a likable antihero, pleasantly human despite being unquestionably damned, and the politics of Heaven and Hell provide plenty of material for sequels." - Publishers Weekly
"A very promising first novel." - Locus
"With a candid style that exhibits solid confidence and finesse, Chris Holm pullsreaders in and pins us to the edge of our seats with a cleverly conceived story thatis flawlessly executed." - NY Journal of Books
"Chris Holm s smooth writing style and rather charming characters (yes, Sam is charming, so there), made Dead Harvest a pleasure for me. 4.5/5 stars." - My Bookish Ways
""Dead Harvest" does not feel like a debut. Chris F. Holm's writing is assured and the world building is outstanding... I completely enjoyed reading "Dead Harvest" with its unlikely anti-hero and world painted in shades of gray. The Collector series is on my must buy list." - The Qwillery
"The first book in The Collector series, is completely fresh and absolutely distracting. You won t be able to put it down, and you ll want a stiff drink and a smoke to go with it." - Sacramento Book Review
...classic mix of deduction, ultra-violence, narrow escapes, shocking revelations, and sudden turns of fortune that make noir such a satisfying genre. Also, possessions, demons, seraphs, and lucky cat statues. Just fantastic enough to be entertaining, but not so unrealistic that it stretches the bounds of credulity. -Josh, In Order of Importance
"A great protagonist, powerful bad guys (you have to love Bishop, the bad guy who can be anybody), pacing, tension and some really clever twists (the need for, and effects of, meatsuits is particularly cool) make this one of my favourite books."
