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.

I will freely acknowledge that I wasn't a big fan of book 2... mostly due to the protagonist's distracting/implausible romantic entanglements. HOWEVER this is significantly toned down in this book.
I also really enjoyed the story. I'm a big fan of world builing: I enjoy his varied explanations of how things work and the explanation of minor details. The character muses and has internal monologues that inform and entertain. There appears to be an over arching plot line on an epic scale across worlds, realities and generations.
This series is epic in every sense. Long may it continue.
I love this book and almost did not put it down from start to finish
Love these books, and value for money!!! I would say they go on for ever, but time does when you are having fun. I can't wait for the next instalment, sadly I know it is gonna be a while. When I first heard Sean Runette, I wasn't a fan, but stick with it, he is superb!!!
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.
couldn't stop listening, the story was another success, not sure how I'm going to wait for the next one.
"i dont know about the ending but it was good."
i love this series but this book seemed to fast paced and shoved an ending out. it doesnt end eny questions from the last book and adds more, like its setting up for the next book. i think it was obviose the auther was writing himself into a corner every time he thought an encounter took to long, so he "jumped" him into a new one.
"I love this book/Series but did this get Edited correctly?"
I'm a big fan of the Series. Honestly it's probably my favorite. There a lot of facets of this main character that I've wanted to see in a fantasy/vampire book for a while now. The main character is complex yet average, powerful yet controlled, moral yet lets Loose as a bad ass of destruction & wrath.
This book had action, comedy, emotion, it's well written. It leaving me wanting more... But in all the wrong ways.
Every direction the story ends up going starts well and seems to be on its way to a conclusion but get diverted with no logical way to go back and follow up. This happens like 4/5 times. In one case there is a very emotion conclusion... But your left scratching your head and asking yourself "Why was so much in-story work done (a 1/4 of the book) for this outcome".
Lots of repetitive dialogue. And by the end of the book I was so annoyed by a new character, who I first loved but later looked forward to them not appearing in a scenes.
Great conceptions & writing... Poor execution and editing. Almost like no one who read the book before publishing told the author how mediocre and open ended in was. The other book had endings with the ability for there to be more. This didn't.
I'm sad... Sad because the book was Good... But it could have been Excellent.
"I can't wait for the next one"
I wan to kill you ( I don't literally mean it Mr. Whited) for that ending.
amazing as always cant wait for the next book one of my favorite authors hope the next one dosent take a year
good listen, but leaves you wanting more. can not wait for the next book in the series. very detailed.
"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.
what happened the start and the ending were very disappointing OMG, so bad i don't know if it will be worth my time for a book 4, i don't understand why you did this, been waiting for this book and now i just feel like i was scammed. very disappointed.
"Best Series I have every listened to"
I have listened to over 5 months of books on Audible and this series has been the best one hands down. I rarely review a book, but I cannot express how much I enjoy this series. Everything I would want out of a book is in this series.
The only thing I regret is that I started listening to this series before it was finished. keep up the amazing writing and I look forward to whatever you produce in the future
