Publisher's Summary

It's not easy, being king. You can't always rule a kingdom and still do what needs to be done.

Eric - or King Halar, also known as the Demon King - has more than enough problems without the crown. But quitting the job of king isn't easy, either - unless you want to be beheaded. Most people regard that as an unsatisfactory way to quit. Even vampire lords tend to be cautious about guillotines. A king who loses his head has a real problem...or none at all.

It's time to sort some of these problems out, settle a few more, and kill the rest. But at what cost?

Knightfall is the fourth book of the Nightlord series. It picks up exactly where Orb (book three) ends, and carries on with an adventure of epic proportions!

Garon Whited is a true genius.

Will there be a book 5. ?
These books are truly amazing in their scope and creativity.
Garon Whited demonstrates a vast knowledge of all things especially his loved physics. Whited is a brilliant writer with a vast intellect.
The Nightlord is a complex character who constantly suffers from self doubt.
Despite his constant self examinations he proves to be a true humanitarian.
My only surprise is the way Whited deals with love and sex. The Nightlord who never lacks female attention, seems shy on this subject and doesn't deal well with it in the story. He seems ambivalent in all his romantic female relationships.
This is still my most favourite series ever (so far) and lastly I love Sean Runnette who is 'The Nightlord'

Another modern prometheus

Beautifully performed. A fun story with engaging characters and a welcome tendency to work through loose threads. Please publish several more in this series. please avoid waiting 10 years to do so.

Believably breaks the immersion.

Any additional comments?

The faults of the character are really well implemented in the words of the recounting but also massively hurt the pacing of events.
His qualities that likely hold his gift for enchanting synergies also saturate the story with boring details representing his train of thought.
His appreciation of method and science makes him a little prejudice and impatient toward the less critical minds of the "gods", alienating those who wait eagerly to see his conflict and discoveries with the pantheon.
Cant wait for the things set up in this book to bloom in the next!

I don't want to be King...

Remember my subject line, you will hear this as both a stream of thought over and over, as a theme for the entire book, and as a storyline that never dies. 21 hours in and this is all that I've heard:

I'm a monster. I'm a terrible king. I'm horrible at being king. I shouldn't be king. Oh, why am I king. I need to make my wife Queen and leave it in her hands, someone so much better at everything than I am. I'm a horrible, inept king. I'm worse than the bacteria in a bog at being king. A lowly person would be such a better king. Anyone, even a cat or a dog, or a bird, or a pigeon would be a better king... I need to hand over this kingship right now, because I'm a monster.

Like the above paragraph? That's all I've heard in the last 21 hours, that's only 1/2 way through the book. I'm tempted to stop listening, because all I hear is this same sentiment repeated over and over... Nothing has happened, but the King not wanting to be King, and making sure we, the reader, are reminded every two seconds how much he hates power and being King and how bad at being a king he thinks he is.

What was the writer thinking? Did he actually let people read this for feedback? Because I can't believe anyone test read this bore of a novel, and didn't tell him, "Ummm, don't you think the readers will get tired of hearing this whiny thing repeat how much he doesn't want to be King 5,000,000 times?"

Edited my review to state the second half of this book is so much better than the first 21 hours. I wish the first half had been cut into a third of what it is, but since it wasn't I stand by my above thoughts on the first 21 hours. I'm loving the second half though.

A good sum up for the first 3

A little too long, due to the repetitive nature of the story. Not sure how many times Eric can go through the whole "woe is me" scenario, I started to block it out about half way through the book, along with "come to that" and "he admitted, she admitted".

I love the storyline, don't get me wrong and would put #5 on a wish list immediately. I guess with 4, 40+ hour books, you can't help but pick up on the idiosyncrasies of the main character. After that many hours together, it's like any other relationship - your other half may have their annoying habits - but you love them all the same!!

Terrible direction to take what was a great story

I loved book 1 and 2. I thought book 3 was going oddly, but I had faith. Book 4 is a total disaster.

Repetitive

I like Mr Whited's style of writing, however this book and the one before started to be the same story over and over again. Book 1 & 2 were great...book 3 & 4 seemed to be the same as 1&2 but with slightly different characters. The end of this book certainly makes me feel better as to the direction of our beloved Eric. Without giving spoilers, I do like how he's changing as a character. Fingers crossed!

Whining, Whining, and more Whining

The book goes as so.

People are after me=bitch about it
I can stop the people=bitch about it
Power to solve all my problems=bitch about it
More nonsense that is irrelevant=bitch about it

I'm not sure how the next book will be but I'll tell you this, if it was not for the narrator I would have dropped this book like a bad habit awhile ago. Now I'm not sure if zombie Fallout is stealing from the Night Lord books or if Night Lord is stealing from zombie Fallout but it's getting weird. Both series started out great and slowly morphed into fluff filled nonsense. The main characters seems to go way out of the way to put there self, friends, and family in as much danger as possible and then refuse to remove any enemies that can and will kill everybody because of morals that didn't exist a chapter earlier. I'm done with both books for now.

I’m not really sure what happened here...

Is it just me or did it seem like the plot was sorta flat, almost as if they were perusing around different points, but meaning really hitting of them head on. I’m not sure, maybe it’s just me as I know all sorts of people have rated this thing ahead of the Good Book. Anyhow, Mr. Runnette did another fabulously exercises reading of a difficult book with many voices ranging from a new-age computer to a large sword that loves to kill to a horse made entirely out of bronze. Well I guess he didn’t have to make any vocal remarks as Bronze, but he did have to mimic some noises that a horse would make and I swimmingly and seamlessly follows his various representations all 40 some hours of the book. And to think that I was really looking forward to this one. I’m just a wee bit disappointed. :-/

Boring, navel gazing and morally inept

After the last book I wasn't sure if I could continue the series. Now I know that I cannot. The politics are abysmal, the continual saccharine tone with an attempt at underlying menace gets really old really quickly. The constant self-analysis is tedious.

Good, but lack the power of the last few.

A good book, but not a fantastic book. The story is too rambling and disjointed and doesn’t have the punch expected in key places like with the deaths of certain characters! Unfortunately it’s a rather disjointed book, unlike the the last few, which were absolutely excellent. I hope the author plans a follow up and that it will be as powerful and moving as the first few books in the Nightlord series.

Amazing series

This series cannot be over hyped. Well written, funny, thought provoking books, wonderfully performed by Sean Runnette. I recommend these to anyone and everyone who has the slightest interest in Vampires, funny books, physics, magic and fire-breathing metal horses. Treat yourself to this fantastic book!
