Publisher's Summary

"I've awakened in a stone box about the size of a large coffin.... I'm filthy, everything aches, and, by the various so-called gods, I smell awful. I've woken up in worse places. Hmm. What does that say about my life choices?" (Eric, amateur magician, part-time vampire, and accidental king)

It's not easy being king. Especially when you've got an allergy to sunrise and sunset, a fire goddess for a mother-in-law, demonic adversaries, random assassins, and a basement full of insecurities to cope with. Add to that his daughter, the fire priestess/princess; a couple of lightly deranged professional magicians; a whole city full of wizards; and enough squabbling princes to resemble a kindergarten argument. It's enough to make a man want to just go home. Luckily for Eric, he has the world's fastest pet rock, a smart-mouthed sword, and a horse that not only understands him but likes him anyway.

    "Best fun to be had in book form"

    Garon Whited's Nightlord series is one of my favourite audio books to date. The writing is funny, witty, entertaining, dramatic and takes you on a truly extraordinary journey. Paired with Sean Runnette as the narrator it is a delight to listen to. Sean's voice adds drama and depth to an already dramatic tale and really brings the character of Eric to vibrant, blood sucking life. I was hooked from the very first paragraph and my only complaint is that I have to stop listening when the book ends. I will be eagerly, impatiently and excitedly awaiting the third book with bitten nails and a fervent hope for Eric's survival.

    Story
    "Good Book"
    Would you listen to Nightlord again? Why?

    Yes, it is very entertaining, the performance and book manage to provide a personal experience of an American becoming a vampire in an alternate reality.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nightlord?

    I think the humour, which is often self deprecating.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Form me the American accent which works very well with the pop culture references that so often lead to reflective humour.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An American in Mordor

    "Just getting better....and better."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Its a great story, and Garon Whited has created a wonderful blend of worlds and characters with real depth.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It blends so many genres and does it very well indeed. As I've said the characters have real depth and you relate to each of them throughout the story. The "hero" is very believable and fallible too!


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    As usual Sean Runnette is masterful in his performance. He does not "read a book"....he tells it like it's his story from his own memories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not a chance at over 30 hours!


    Any additional comments?

    GARON what a place to leave me hanging! Get writing this minute.....!!!!!

    "Aw no! You can't leave me like this!!!!!"
    Where does Nightlord rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One off or the best I have listened too.


    What other book might you compare Nightlord to, and why?

    It stands alone, I can't compare it in kind.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The spirit of the story, his inflection, and each character is real!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It certainly was!!


    Any additional comments?

    Another please!

    Story
    "The technical aspects to magic"

    So... I might have listened to shadows before sunset and well, I wish that the story would just go on forever. I loved the characters, the plot, the details and even the confusingly brief nods to things that later led me to google the series to find out if there was a prequel.

    The thing I love more than anything though, was the beautiful way in which you meld science and magic. The idea of a wizard dissembling a spell as if it were code in order to hack together some quick and dirty solution, only to later refine with the help of more technical mages is simply brilliant. I love your book and I'm about to go through Sunset now.

    I do hope that when the next instalment is ready, that you get it to the ever talented Sean Runette post haste, for his performance was simply stunning.

    "Good, but overlong"

    Enjoyed the overall narrative arc. The changes in Halar's character are subtle but important to pick up on for reasons that will become obvious. It's a long listen, and needs a bit of tightening up to maintain pace. Sean Runnette's performance good and at its best in the very final section.

    "OH NO!!! I have to wait for book 3. :("

    I loved listening to this novel! The story grabbed my attention immediately and it held it through to the end. I love the magic system, it makes sense to me, and I love how the protagonist works through the problems he encounters by using magic and his vampire powers. This is a truly unique vampire story and it's truly epic. There is a HUGE cliffhanger at the end, which leaves me chomping at the bit wanting to know what happens in Book 3. I hope it's not a long wait. I think the narrator is a perfect match too. I can't imagine any one else narrating it. Sean Runnette was excellant!

    "Horribly over detailed"

    Love the first book, could not wait for the second one to end. It's a 47 hour book that could've easily been 10 hours or less. The story itself was decent, when he actually told the story. After reading this book I'm not sure if I will venture into book 3.

    "Deep, Rich, Amusing."

    Beautifully done. A vampire story without being a typical YA vampire story. The story has humor, depth, and is surprisingly captivating for being so very, very long. The narrator has a pleasing and varied voice. He does a really good job of separating the various characters and keeping their voices straight. Buy this audio book on its own or with the previous in the series. Either way, you are in for a treat and I envy you your first listen.

    "little too much explanation?"

    I enjoyed this book but I think most of the explanations belong in the first book. hopefully the next installment will deal with more storyline and less long winded magical teaching. all and all the characters are believable .

    I do not normally write reviews, but I had to for this book. The first book in this series was spectacular but this book eclipses the first by far. Gritty, dark fantasy, wonderful world building, exceptional characters, humor and death. This book has it all. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    Great story telling Garon, thank you for a wonderful series. And Sean, you really bring the book to life for me. Thank you both.

    Who is Halar the Night Lord? Can he build and rule a society free from corruption?

    Will his enemies succeed in destroying him?

    This is the second installment in the Nightlord series by Garon Whited. These are excellent fantasy novels that follow the adventures and exploits of Halar and his companions.

    If you like fantasy, action, and suspense stories then these books are for you!

    As always Sean Runnette does a killer job narrating!
