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!

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.

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.

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!

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. :-/

OMG....This book could be half the size.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book....and I liked the first three in the series. It is way too wordy. I'm sick of listening to the Night Lords inner thoughts....I want him to do something.

What could Garon Whited have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He should have had less dialogue explaining the thoughts of the Night Lord, and more action to move the story forward.

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

The narrator is very good.

Depressingly boring - loved the first 3

There were so many opportunities for this book to shine. Somehow the author missed those opportunities in this book. He focused almost all of his attention on Eric's depression and spent almost no time developing other characters. Mary grew a bit, but as much as she's in the book her character is very 1 dimensional. Very "perfect" and against the contrast of Eric/Halar being so very whiny I didn't feel their dynamic. The whole thing with Yohan was one of the smaller portions of this book. Tons of time was spent building up the Yohan and then it's just super easy no problems to kill him. Like every battle in this book it was high on Eric's feelings and low on things actually happening. This book was about brooding. I sure hope that the next book is stronger and spends more time developing the side cast.

Good story however he does babble a bit.

I love the narration, and the story isn't bad. However I wonder how long the book would be if you removed say 1/2 of what I would say is pointless babble? I found myself tuning out during long periods of exposition on magic, or how things work in this fictional world and only started listen when something happened. I made a similar comment in my review of book 3, and was on the wall about giving book 4 a go. But hell its a 40 hour book, with a great narrator and an ok story so diffidently worth a credit.

Bronze

First thee books amazing. Eagerly awaited fourth, disappointing.
Retribution could have been more detailed ie rest of family.
Evil orbs disappearance too easy.
And the lost of BRONZE really just too bad and not necessary. Retirement with Bronze could have been achieved

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.

I am pleasantly surprised that the book didn't end in a doom and gloom cliffhanger. it feels a bit refreshing for this series. anyway another great book and I look forward to the next book.

simply brilliant

I've loved all the books in this series so far and can't wait for book 5 (void) to come out on audible, the good part is that I'll have to listen to the 1st 4 books all over again to recap :-) . all the characters in these books are believable even the Eric's (hallar) computer and the story lines are equal parts funny serious and sad. my compliments to the author for a fantastic story line and to the narrator for a stellar performance.

Brilliant series

What a clever, talented and witty author. Goes to one of the top of my best authors list. Gave me many, many happy hours of listening, I do love lengthy, interesting great stories to listen to in one go and this series was the best.the only downfalls were the sometimes lengthy monologues of his difficult theories of mathematics and science of how he worked things out in his mind-non of which I understood. Sounded a bit like Stephen Hawkins . No offence to Mr Hawkins he was a brilliant man with a brilliant mind , but way above my intelligence and understanding. I just skipped over those chapters. I. Would certainly recommend this series .
