Editorial Reviews


"Deeper Thank the Night is an excellent vampire romance due to the successful mixing of research science, medicine, the supernatural, and Ayn Rand-like moral questions into an exciting story line. On top of Amanda Ashley’s terrific plot and great characterizations, curiosity will compel readers to desire a sequel starring the lead protagonists children.”—Harriet Klausner in an America Online Review

More About the Author

I write paranormal romances for Zebra Books, and I love it. Most of my books are about vampires because, I admit, I'm fascinated by them. I also admit I don't like most vampire movies. I'm not really into blood and gore in living color on the screen, although I do love the movie, Dracula, starring Frank Langella. I just close my eyes from time to time.

I also write historical romances as Madeline Baker.

Customer Reviews

I look forward to reading more books by the author.
I haven't wasted good money on such a stinker in a very long time.
I love this book, it is one of my all-time favorites.

Deeper than the night was the first book I ever read by Amanda Ashley, and I have been hooked ever since. While some of the other readers may have been disappointed I found her story refreshing to say the least. I will however admit that it was a bit misleading at first but once I started to get the real background I had to know the rest. A warning to those who have read other Ashley books. This book is not like anything else she has written so don't go in expecting to find a typical vampire story because you will come out of it feeling cheated. Instead get into it expecting to read something original and different to anything else she has out there.

Alexander Claybourne lives alone in an isolated house in a small town. No-one sees him during the day. He doesn't socialise, and no-one knows anything about him. There are rumours that he is a vampire. One day, an eight-year-old girl, Gail Crawford, comes to him and asks him to save her sister, in a coma in hospital following a road accident. Since he's a vampire, as she believes, then if he gives her some of his blood she will live.
Is Alexander a vampire? Does his blood have mysterious qualities? He doesn't actually know what his blood will do to Kara, but feels compelled to help her all the same. And once he has done so, he feels drawn to her and unable to stay away. He visits her, and they talk on several occasions - and fall in love.
But when Kara gets out of hospital and is sent for further blood tests, Alexander realises that by giving her his blood he might have saved her life, but he has caused problems not only for Kara, but also for herself. They have to go on the run, in fear of their lives. And Alexander has to tell Kara the truth about himself - will she still want him?
Yes, he's not a vampire: he's an alien, as many other reviewers have pointed out. (Oh, and this happens not very far into the book; certainly not close to the end, as other reviewers claim). Umm... so what? That made no difference to me. My two-star rating isn't because Alexander isn't a vampire; it's because of the quality of the book. Making him an alien was definitely different, and in a better book it would have made for a very interesting storyline. As it is, Ashley's alien is, as Kara herself says, something of a cross between Superman and the Highlander (not a lot of originality in characterisation, really), though he doesn't seem to possess much of Superman's morality.

Like many others who have reviewed this book, I am quite a fan of vampire romances. I started reading them when Linda Lael Miller came out with her Vampire series. I've read a few here and there since, and when I stumbled upon Amanda Ashley's "Deeper Than the Night," I thought I had another tasty treat.
Wrong. What's with "leading the reader along into making her think the hero's a vampire?" Look at the cover, for instance. There's the hero, looking tortured, wearing a cape. Now, I know that many heroes wear capes in many types of romance sub-genres, but on the cover of a novel being touted as a vampire story, it's automatically assumed the tortured-looking soul on the cover is the vampire in question.
I don't like being fooled into thinking the hero is one thing and then finding out 3/4 way through the book he's something altogether different. The spine thing was also a bit creepy for me, and didn't help with the otherworldly atmosphere the author was obviously heading toward. The scene at the cabin was dark and mysterious, but the creepy feeling came over me when his otherwordly side was slowly being revealed. I think it was at this point I was incredulous to what I was reading, and like a bad train wreck, I couldn't help but not finish the book. My books look brand new when I finish them, and there was no reason for me to keep the book, so off to the bookstore I marched to trade it in for something a little less devious.
If this story was going to be a sci-fi romance, then why didn't Amanda Ashley just come right out and say so? Instead, she had to disguise the sci-fi story with the vampire cover-up.

I have recently stumbled across the vampire genre. I noticed Amanda Ashley's books in the store and I bought this one. What a mistake! I have probably read over 10,000 books in my life and I buy over 1,000 books a year, but I always manage to finish the book. I couldn't finish the book. The problem with this book was that the characters met a number of times at night in the hospital, but there was no real development between them. However, they fell in love right away. So unbelievable. They needed to converse more or there should be more details expressing their feelings. The plot is horrible. Who wants to read a book about a vampire that is not really a vampire, but something out of this world. I was so disappointed because I felt that the characters fell in love too fast and the dialogue was tacky. I have read other books by this author that are better, but not by much. So, take my advice, stay away from this book. If you want to read a good romance novel concerning vampires, read Christine Feehan's Dark Prince, Gold, etc. series. Her novels are detailed and you can understand the torment the characters go through and why they fall in love. I hope this review helped.
