Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Excellent writing and narration"

    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

    i could not think of a better narrator for this series than Sean. He brings such character to Eric and adds to the scenes. looking forward to the next book!

    "More, please!"

    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.

    Eric rules.

    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.

    "Frustrating"

    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.

    Story
    "Enough "Niceguy™""

    First: The good. I did listen to all three books so far, and apparently enjoyed them enough to continue listening. Also, the narrator really does a great job of keeping the story alive, i felt very engaged with the listening, even while being frustrated at the titular character. I think Bronze is a terrific horse idea, even though we gloss over how he killed several real horses to make her. Some of the action scenes are well done and

    Complaints: First, it reads like a wish-fulfillment novel (i.e., the author just sorta mixes up a bag of things he wishes he could do and pulls out the base plot - ergo, i'm an immortal-vampire-wizard-deathgod-scientist who is still alive during the day, because why not sex?)

    Second: He's an idiot. Eric, Halar, Vlad, whichever name he goes by, he makes me actively anxious in how unaware he is. In this third book, he escapes his "basement" and tries to make up for his lost time. This includes being a Niceguy™ up until someone disagrees with him, has a different outlook on life, or basically chooses any path but the one the Nightlord agrees with. Then, he decides he better make-up for his "evil-alter-egos" actions, and goes about righting some wrongs. But he never considers that maybe some women don't want to see their rapists face, or some children will never forgive the man they saw pour molten lead down their father's throats. Nope, if he just tries hard enough, everyone will forgive him, and let him go ahead doing whatever he wants, AS LONG as it isn't being king, because he really doesn't like kinging. He just wants to tell everyone what to do, and be left alone

    And he's so bad at relationships, he can't handle all the sex that gets thrown at him, it confuses his already overtaxed relationship sense, and he has to go back to his pseudo-scientific experiments based in loose ideas and glued together with magic.

    Ok, enough complaining, the story is good enough that i didn't quit half-way, so that's something!

    "Great Books!"

    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.

    "This character is a smart idiot an its getting old"

    I really wanted to like this book.
    I'll put this plain and simple this is a book about a victim. It says Night Lord on the cover and that is what makes it so funny. It's like the author took a challenge from his sewing Circle. Stating that "I can make my readers feel the same way about a super powerful blood drink soul sucking vampire as you would FOR A FEMALE RAPE VICTIM." Guess what he won that bet.

    I listen to this genre of books because I want two read about bada**. Not a victim in bada** clothing.

    I use to like this series of books. I am just getting sick and tired of him being super smart and the most powerful non-god creature and yet still has to run and hide and when not doing that gets his butt kicked. He is a vampire lord, King, wizard, magician, gateway to the Afterlife, godling city developer and yeah i know im missing some adjectives. And yet he still sucks. When he is shown respect he always complains about it even though he clearly loves it. He just loves telling everyone not to respect himself. He's like "I don't want to be king i hate this." "Where are you going". "Oh im going​ move back into my mountain home where my thrown is so i can complain some more." I hate cry baby especially powerful crybaby's.

    The whole book he was a run away from your problems victim he was literally chased out of two entire dimensions and drag into one. He called himself the dark lol more like the darkend eye of an abuse victim.

    "Good parts, but nothing ties up"

    I enjoyed this series. However the last book left a lot on the table. Unlike many other reviews I didn't mind the twist the story took. However once he made it back to his kingdom I thought some of the loose ends that were hanging out there for the entire book would at least somewhat tie up.
    But no. At the end it seems no closer to tying up the issues than in the beginning. It was pretty frustrating to come as far as he had clawed back to, for nothing to tie up.
    I had hoped for a conclusion good or bad to tie the series up.
    Overall, it's still worth the time, but it feels you end up basically the same place you begin with more loose ends then when it starts. So be prepared for frustration.

    "What a trite, pointless part of this series"

    This was a huge waste of my time. This didn't advance the story at all, and all the "coincidences" and "character flaws" that the author uses to move the plot along are beyond tired at this point. Women who need rescuing but have no character development? - Check. Needing to prove how smart/brave/lucky/humble the main character is through pointless rambling or side stories that go nowhere? - Check. An utter lack of depth to anyone outside the main character? - Check. Multiple miraculous occurrences by outside forces? - Check. At this point I'm assuming that the whole series will wrap up with "But it was all just a dream" in order to really round out the annoying literary tropes checklist.

    "Struggling to get through this one..."
    Where does Orb rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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 ...


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    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.


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

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh ? Cry ? More like snore..... get on with the story for pete's sake.

    "Save yourself some time...."

    Just listen to the first couple of hours and the last couple of hours. The rest is rambling fluff that goes absolutely NOWHERE. Generally if I buy a long book I expect it to go somewhere, resolve something. Better yet, save yourself the money and don't buy this book at all.

    I loved book 1, could live with book 2, but now I won't get book 4...

    "Good performance, but not much story progress ion"

    I enjoy the series so far, but if not for audible I think I would be skipping paragraphs with the constant and often repetitive thought tangents. Yes some are intellectual and humorous, but some make me scream at the Narrator to shut up. It also seems the main character is getting dumber and dumber relying on others to give him ideas. The entire book seemed like a side story with not much at all getting completed, besides the growth and introduction of Mary. Nothing was resolved, only more and more problems introduced. I enjoy good character building and description, but I probably don't need to know a every step in a spell creation process, every a time as well as 5 different tangents per working. I will likely still read the next book in the series, but admittedly was a bit frustrated with this one.
