Book Review of Nightlord: Sunset

About the book

Eric didn't ask to be a vampire. In fact, he didn't even believe in them. Then he hooks up with a hot babe, wakes up with a hangover, and bites his tongue with his own fangs.

Which pretty much settles the question.

Now he's trying to hold down his day job while learning the rules of the Undead -- the most important being that bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts are a real bitch. 

Upside; Eric has the beautiful Sasha to teach him the ropes, including the magic he'll need to survive.

Downside; they're being hunted by members of the Church of Light, who are determined to rid the world of vampires.

Then Sasha is killed, and Eric is thrust into an alternate world in his quest to avenge her death. There he becomes a Nightlord, fights a dragon with the help of his magical steed, Bronze, and upchucks a sword named Firebrand. 

But things get really interesting when Eric finally finds Tobias, head of the Church of Light. Soon Eric finds himself at the center of an epic battle at the literal edge of the world in a fight to keep a terrible darkness at bay.

In other words, just another day in the life of the Nightlord.

"When you fall off the Edge of the World into hordes of demonic Things from the Outer Darkness, you really start to wonder about your life choices."
--Eric, part-time undead, expectant father, and short-term astronaut.

My thoughts:

Eric a professor of Physics was having fun in a bar one night when the hangover takes the better of him and he wakes up stark naked in a bed. He tries to recollect where he has ended up but finds no answers. Next he finds himself in the company of Sasha a beautiful lady, a vampire.

Sasha turns him to a Dayblood vampire because he looked familiar to her husband she had lost a long ago. Eric turns into a vampire and Sasha helps him stay that way, but Eric protests as he hasn’t chosen to become one and being a vampire wasn’t a thing he was accustomed to which makes him afraid and lonely for a while. But Sasha being a powerful vampire helps him and shows him the ways a vampire can stay alive, as always on blood and food being secondary only for taste. Sasha then teaches her magic and how to use it.

I like this quote from the story
I glanced at the now empty bottle. “What is this stuff, anyway?”
She bit her lip.
“It’s blood.”

Visualizing this scene ran shivers down my body. And I could imagine how Eric must have felt in the first place.

Now they are no alone there are secret organizations that are hunting vampires. Sasha is killed by one of the organizations, Eric ventures in the search of them to avenge Sasha’s death. Eric finds himself in an alternate world which is filled with magical creatures, very different from a normal world, and with the help of his sword Fireband and his magical horse Bronze in the due course becomes Nightlord.

He meets the leader of The Church of Light an organisation which hunts the vampire and keeps evil at bay. Even the Church has its secrets but you have to read the story to finds the secrets that lay hidden in the book.

Eric has to fight a battle and accomplishes things that he hasn’t dreamt of. He has to fight a battle to keep a terrible darkness at bay. You will find an entirely a different story when you start reading the last pages of the book and those pages gave me goosebumps and I was kept saying to myself when shall I get my hand on the sequel

The story of Nightlord is epic and showcases the life of a vampire in an entirely different way and takes you in a journey of a magical world with all the horrendous being and acts. And again gives you the feeling that there are forces that will do anything in power to keep evil at a long distance.

I am quite impressed with the magical world and a journey that was filled with horror, mysteries and adventure. I am very sure you can’t find peace until you read till the last page.


Great book in the fantasy genre!
