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.

    "love this series"

    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!

    "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.

    "Good, but too much going on. ending ruined it."

    I really like the character and the world, but there is simply too much going on. its not enough for the hero to have 1,2, or even 3 quest. he has to have so many that most major plots go unresolved, despite being the focus of the book. The ending is a cheap cliff hanger. The author set up a great conflict and drama about dealing with consequences of his alter egos actions, facing the people he cared about and hurt deeply, deciding how to move forward and a plot against him and his crown from a traitor. then the author changed his mind in the last 3 chapters to revisit a minor subplot that escalated in an unbelievable and uninteresting way. It feels like the author simply lost interest at the end. i will finish the series only because i am this far in.

    "So disappointed "

    I liked the first and second book (til the end) and had hoped the third could make up for the lack luster ending. This book was so hard to read at times, the author never ties up ANY loose ends and just left me feeling like I waisted my time on the whole series. The narrator put forth a good performance but I think he was limited to the material.

    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!

    "What a waste of time"

    The main character literally achieved absolutely nothing in this entire book. I don't think I've ever been so frustrated with any book I have ever read.

    "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...

    "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.

    "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.

    "I Loved the First 2! The 3rd Was a Waste of Time!"
    Would you try another book from Garon Whited and/or Sean Runnette?

    I wouldn't buy another book by this author without reading the reviews of those who have read it already. I wouldn't start another trilogy by him without all 3 books having been released and knowing that I would enjoy all 3! There is nothing worse than loving the first 2 and then being let down with the 3rd book -- really let down -- as happened this time!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Garon Whited again?

    Yes, but with the hesitation that I just explained above.


    Did Sean Runnette do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narrator was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Orb?

    I would revise the 3rd book taking out much of it and adding a satisfying ending.

    "Recycled plot from the first two books."
    Would you try another book from Garon Whited and/or Sean Runnette?

    No.


    Has Orb turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This is exactly the same plot as the other two. Same bone headed decisions by the main character. Same new romance. Same attempt to improve a world. It all goes wrong and Eric ends up dead/sleeping/lost/whothehellcares again.

    Won't be fooled by this series again.
