Publisher's Summary

"Why do I have to have moral issues with killing someone? I feel like such a hypocrite! It's worse than a vegetarian touting organically grown steaks." (Eric, physics teacher, involuntary vampire, and part-time demon slayer)

Eric didn't ask to be a vampire. In fact he didn't even believe in them. Biting your own tongue with your fangs does a lot of convincing. Even so, being a part-time undead isn't as easy as you might think. It can let you hold down a day job, true, but sometimes the night "life" can be more than a little difficult, what with those bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts kicking in. Luckily for Eric, he can rely on his trusty steed and her unwavering support, his flaming sword and its sarcastic wit, and his own snarky sense of humor.

    Story
    "Enjoyed it a lot, hated it a lot too"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The main character has no qualms with killing bystanders, random people who aren't bad but might have one archaic view on something, and is used as justification for their murder.He makes so many absolutely stupid decisions. Just monumentally dumb. And for what i can only assume is to add more plot devices. Spare a person who is consorting with greater demons to hunt him down and murder him, his friends, as well as kidnapping him and them. Leave him alone because he didn't do it PERSONALLY.Comes across a mage who for the last 100 years or so has been committing mass murder to lengthen her life through innocent peoples death. Changes her into an immortal creature with supreme powers. Sure that makes sense. Just to find the person he spared the day earlier. The writing wasn't too bad, i enjoyed a lot of the book. But there were so many resoundingly stupid moral dilemmas and choices made by the character that the author chose, i can only assume it was to add to the view of the main character being a just and moral person who only kills truly evil people. Unless they tried to kill him multiple times through their agents. Then he waits to be offender by said people personally, and goes on a killing spree catching many innocent bystanders in his 'righteous revenge'.Very 2 dimensional characters.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    If I could i would re write a lot of the book to seem more realistic. People aren't steadfast on morals that are only there to be seen as a good person.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favourite?

    I guess the main character, i liked quite a bit of the story, he just makes a good amount of horrendous decisions for no reason, and spends a lot of time contemplating something small, and 1 minutes something that could change the world completely and absolutely for the worst.


    Was Nightlord worth the listening time?

    Yes and no.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if i want to listen to the other audio books, i can only assume the main character remains a damn idiot.

    "seriously give this a go, worth every penny."

    genre : fantasy with a little science and a little comedy
    with a big lick of swords and sorcery
    out of ten : 8.5 to 9 /10
    this is not a challenging book but it does have some adult content
    it really is a whole lot of fun
    and narrated by sean runnette who is frankly damn good at his job

    Story
    "Quirky But Good"

    This is a long book - George R.R. Martin long. Unlike George’s books, this one is written in a conversational style, the main charter is likeable and the evil enemies are consistently immoral. The book includes action, tragedy and at times, some humor. The ending is abrupt and I hope the writer is gearing up for a sequel. Even after 37 hours, there is more to be told.

    "Ahh no fair no fair"

    I loved every second of this book. I had doubts based on the description and the sample, but oh man am I glad I took the risk. The almost 40 hrs wasn't nearly enough. I want more!

    Lots of fun without being silly.

    I couldn't decide to groan or scream at the cliffhanger at the end. I have hundreds of audible books, this very well might be the best. I WANT MORE!!

    "Very Tufo-esk, Great book with HORRIBLE ending"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    awesome book I thoroughly enjoyed it and was honestly wondering if it was written by Tufo until the horrible ending.... still a great listen though, can't go wrong with Sean Runnette (which is how I found this book). I hope there is another installment to finish up the loose ends.

    "Great story and narration!"

    Excellent story and narrator. I am looking forward to the next book of the trilogy.

    There was an oddity in the file at about chapter 95(?). One of the chapters repeated--which was confusing at first, but fast forwarding through it confirmed it was a repeat, and the story picked up in the correct place afterwards.

    "My favorite read of the year"

    The storyline is good and the narrator is perfect for the story. It never flags. It never wanders. It just keeps going from one interesting plot point to another. I normally go for high tech science fiction. This is a most welcome exception.

    "Good Book"

    This is the 3rd book in the Nightlord series by Garon Whited.

    These are well written and entertaining novels! You cannot help but love Halar, the "grey" hero of the story. He claims to be a monster yet cannot resist helping everyone he meets.

    This story was not quite as good as the last 2 - mainly because of the increase in sexual references. It was still an excellent read!

    I will keep reading and look forward to book 4!

    As always Sean Runnette narrates perfectly!

    what a wonderful book. vampires, wizards, knights, dragons and more. this book has everything you would want in a fantasy novel. ive read a few reviews that complained about the ending, but i actually liked it. i cant wait for the next one to come out. if you like Mark Tufo, i guarantee you will like this book. Same humor l, same style of writing. almost as if Mark Tufo was writing under a pen name. Sean Runnette is perfect as always. i think that i am going to listen to it again right now.

    I'm a fan of Sean Runnette's readings and this seemed like an interesting plot line so I started it. This is a truly a miners ice story, with refreshing twists on previously imagined ideas and characters you care about. Superbly read, thoroughly enjoyed, and waiting for the next!!!

    Bravo!!!!!

    "Great book, but odd ending"
    Where does Nightlord rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a pretty good book, the characters were believable and the main character was easy to connect with. I would rank this among the top books I've listened to.


    What was most disappointing about Garon Whited’s story?

    Right up until the end the story was great but to suddenly drop a previous chapter from the beginning on to the end confused me completely. It has more loose ends than a frayed blanket and I really hope a sequel is planned otherwise it's a pointless read!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    There wasn't a particular scene that stood out, but the action scene very described well and easy to imagine.


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

    There were parts that made me laugh, comments or reactions that were amusing. There were sad parts but not to the point of crying


    Any additional comments?

    The way the audio was put together, repetition of scenes and the ending... good grief the ending.. please say there is more!

    Story
    "Vampires with a heart"
    Would you listen to Nightlord again? Why?

    Yes, given the length I'm sure there will be some points I missed first time around! It took me a while to get into the story, but I am so pleased I stayed with it. There were times the story took off in unexpected directions and the pace wasn't even - but that's fine by me. Even with the length, don't expect the story to tie up all the story lines there are a lot left hanging.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The story is all from one view point (Eric), so if you don't like that character don't bother with the book.


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

    His pace of reading is quite laconic - I'm not sure I would have read the voice quite the same way, it added some characterisation I appreciated.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several - but that would be telling!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a really long narrative - I listen while I run (so for half marathon training this is perfect!). I loved the world described and will likely listen to the whole thing again pretty soon, if I can't find a sequal!

    This book started of very well. Became a little lost in the center and finally came back towards the end. That is right up until the last part where it jumped the shark and became extremely disappointing. Shame I was enjoying very much until then.

    "Outstanding, Not just another vampire story."

    When looking at recommendations I almost passed this series by thinking "vampire story" a category which has frankly been done to death (if you will pardon the expression) and not really my favourite genre.
    That would have been a mistake, this is much more than a vampire story. This is epic fantasy, grand, detailed, clever and funny.
    It's like Lord of the rings and the chronicles of narnia had a love child that wanted to be a comedian when he grew up.

    It's worth mentioning the narrator also. I'm sure I'll cause some offence here but unfortunately I don't often find American accents pleasant to listen to. Having said that there's some British narrators I'd rather shove wasps up my arse than listen to for 5 minutes so perhaps it's just some regional accents I don't care for.
    But this is extremely well read by Sean Runnette with timing emotion different voices, I could and literally have listend to the man all day.

    Heads up the next book is more of the same good stuff.
