We all have inner demons. We fight them all the time. Some of us achieve inner peace by coming to terms with them. But how do you come to terms with inner demons that tear free and become outer demons?
Eric has been a vampire for nearly a century, and his demons are more than metaphors. While they controlled him, he was the Demon King. Now he has to avoid the monsters in his own mind, as well as angry nobles, fanatical religions, assassins, magi, other vampires, criminal organizations, and the neighborhood gossip.
He wants two things: To find Tort, and to have someplace to call home.
It may be too much to ask.

Wow a wonderful series I will be listening to again wonderfully written, fantastically read, so much you disappear into the story, thankyou
I adore this series, I love the writing of Garon Whited and his interesting and unusual characters, and Sean Runnette really brings the characters to life. No one else could voice Eric this perfectly. However, I can not stand Mary, and disliked or was ambivalent about many of the main female characters/love interests, Tort and Sasha were just about bearable but Mary drives me nuts. Lysette was the only one I liked (not including the female knights, Amber or Tiana who were brilliant). I understand his sense of responsibility for Tort, but Mary deserved nothing more than a thank you for tipping him off to the Vampiric Council plan, not blanket permission to treat him like a carpet. Being chivalrous is good, being a walkover is not. Two stars taken off for Mary, as I rarely get so irritated by a character that they almost ruin the book for me. Otherwise 10/10
loved it and the humour is growing in me. very dark in places but can't wait for the next. performance is brilliant too
Ok, this trilogy (so far) is long. Very long.
However, it's a testament to the wonderful storytelling, brilliant description of different worlds & some wonderful characters that I'm wanting more.
yes, so much goes on
Eric, Sean's timing is perfect!
This book made me laugh out loud and made me a little teary
This series of books has kept me hooked, love the character's I cant wait for the next book!
Sean Runnette is just fantastic. He is currently reading the majority of books I love. Long may he continue. Lots of love from little old England ! X
So... For an Audible listener with over 900 books in my library, I have fallen down as a reviewer.
I am back because this author and series is more than 5 star. I describe Nightlord as the longest audiobooks that pass in the blink of an eye. Each book is 40 hours of wonder. The slow parts are so engaging that I want to stay and live with them. The hard parts are wrenching.
I have several favorite authors. Bujold, Jordan, Sanderson, even Asaro.
This story is fabulous. Two and a half days to get through 37 hours of audio, and now I have to wait for the next.
Thankfully there is a next.
I can't say that I would ever want it to end.
"I expected more"
I loved books 1 & 2 this one however, not so much. The author spent too much time in the minutiae of spell casting and not enough storytelling.
Totally despise main character. He seemed smart, clever and powerful in first two books until the ending of the second book. Now he's a tragic and foolish figure whom puts everyone he cares about into ever increasing danger. hopefully he will be killed outright early on in the next book and Mary can take over as the main character.
"just what I was hoping for"
If you are debating this book it is a safe bet that you have read the first two. This is definitely a continuation of the same type of story and style. I read a review off Amazon where the reader stated to just not even consider because the book goes nowhere. He could not be more wrong. This story is all about going somewhere but even the main character is not quite sure where. It is about the unfolding and ongoing experiences of his life since becoming "undead" told in a diary format. This chapter brings him to another world that takes up about 2/3 of the book (lots of fun) and yes again a cliffhanger at the end. As long as it takes to write these books it will probably be a long wait. I would rather wait than get an inferior product. I LOVED this book!! Actually, I bit the bullet and re-listened to 1,2 and the new book. Over a hundred hours of fun. If you enjoyed his previous books in this series do not hesitate to spend a credit on this one.
A note about Sean Runnette - Yea!! so glad he continued with the reading. It would not be the same without him.
couldn't stop listening, the story was another success, not sure how I'm going to wait for the next one.
"I'm addicted... Give me the next one!"
This series is like nothing else out there. It is one of those rare things that is truly unique. A vampire, who is also a wizard, has a daughter made of Fire, can travel into alternate universes, and is trapped in the mind of his evil alter ego.... need I say more? This story is complicated, funny, and makes you think beyond the norm.
Hellar is such a great character. His relationships with women seem so realistic for a fantasty novel. I like the new love in this book and I hope that doesn't get her killed in the next.
There were some things I questioned... Fire Brand and Hellar are close, they come across as friends to me. But there is this moment when Fire Brand states he doesn't love Hellar only respects him. Hmm?? Also, if the evil alter ego is killing people on a regular basis, would Fire Brand like him better that the real Hellar?
To all who are reading this to determine if this is worth your credit, then the answer is YES. you won't be disappointed.
A great followup to the prior two but still leaves unanswered questions, can't wait for book 4. The reader is outstanding and consistent through all books. he lends a personality that is believable and compelling. A great combination of writing and reading.
The entire book was memorable, one chapter seamlessly leading into the next
His generosity with the barn and neighbors
I would urge Audible to grap all that Whited has written. I believe that if he pours as much into each book, everything he writes is or will be a great read/listen
"amazing series and perfect performance"
loved it can't wait for more. the sarcasm and humor is just my style .
this is an amazing series & so interesting to listen to...the author is obviously intelligent with ideas & a story of magic & the ways said magic works
"Struggling to get through this one..."
Enough of all the professor dialogue. Soooooooo boring, but guess it adds to the word count. Enjoyed the first one, little less on the second and ready to give up on this one. I chose the series because I love Sean Runnette. He sounds like Ray Romano and I always see him as the main character when Sean narrates...lol I will skip the next book, just don't care anymore about what happens to these people .... Love you Sean ...
The first part of this book, with the kids and the main character doing all kinds of hero things. The least interesting was all the science dribble... a little goes a long way and the author has a tendency to like to drone on. That and all his pondering over his situation past and present. Repeating way too much info , over and over and over.
Love, love, love Sean Runnette. Went through all the books looking for ones narrated by him. Think I have bought every book on here that he has narrated. Even the religious ones.
Laugh ? Cry ? More like snore..... get on with the story for pete's sake.
