I can't wait to read the ending, This is a good book.
Silver
All in all this was an excellent read, one which I highly recommend to horror and adventure fans, the latter only if they can handle the horror elements.
William Malmborg
The more of his work I read, the more I'm beginning to think that he is one of the best horror writers working today.

I've been on a Masterton kick for the past couple of months and recently reread this gem after many years...A group of strangers come together at the scene of a gruesome death. A nude woman is found on the beach, her stomach writhing with freakish, bloodthirsty eels. The strangers soon learn that their meeting is more like fate and what they have witnessed is the birth of the "nightspawn", the brood of an ancient demon that lives in the nightmares of humanity. The demon is on the verge of invading the waking world and the group is enlisted by a strange, angel-like creature that tells them they are the living inheritors to the legacy of the "night warriors", a group who can leave their bodies and move through the world of men's dreams to fight the demon... Masterton has one of the most amazing imaginations in all of horror fiction and this first in a trilogy (where nearly all of the books stand-alone,) is a gruesome thrill-ride. It has some of the most grotesque and memorable scenes in all of horror fiction. There's a scene where a housewife gives birth to more of the nightspawn and it is one of the bloodiest and most outrageous scenes I've ever read. I was gasping out loud as I read it. For Masterton fans and horror fans, this book is a must. The more of his work I read, the more I'm beginning to think that he is one of the best horror writers working today.

Like many of Masterton's works, this book has a solid and intriguing concept behind it: Ordinary individuals, by way of shared lucid dreaming, battle nightmare-fiends before the creatures can become all too real.

I was told, however, that fans of Charles de Lint would enjoy Graham Masterton just as much. This wasn't the case. Masterton's writing is somehow stilted, and he often seems to go for gratuitous splatter factor in lieu of plot development.

But at least one can't fault his sick, twisted, and quite fertile imagination...

Masterton both sticks to his formula and kicks off a series of Dreamworld Adventures with this horror/adventure novel. An ancient demon is impregnating women in their erotic dreams so they may give birth to hellish spawn in this world. A group of people are called upon by an angel of sorts to become dream warriors to stop the grotesque invasion. The pace is brisk and the action frequent, the characters likable, and Masterton, as always, sprinkles just enough humor in the story to make it hard to dislike. Recommended.

I have lots of Grahams' books....In my opinion, he's a horror writer in a genre all of his own! Now I LOVE Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Clive Barker, Thomas Harris and many others, but -I go to bed with Graham Masterton! When I don't want to sleep, -when I want an intelligent scare-the-crap-out-of-you story that lingers and keeps coming back to haunt you over and over again, any one of Graham Mastertons' books will surfice . He's simply the greatest of them all!

People often dream of being heroes, of having a second life so to speak where they battle evil in defense of mankind. It is a common fantasy, one that is often used to brighten the dull dreary normal existence many of us are forced to deal with on a day-to-day basis. In the book Night Warriors by Graham Masterton there are four people that dream of being heroes, only not in the same sense that you and I would. See, they are heroes, but only in the world of dreams, which is where they do battle with an evil force that wants to destroy everything that is good. The proper term for these individuals is Night Warriors. Throughout time such beings have been called upon to do battle within human dreams whenever a threat looms, and now is no different. Descended from Night Warriors of high standing who did battle many ages ago, the three, which then eventually turns to four, are destined for significance as the father of all evil has once again broken free from his prison and prepares to wreak havoc. The question is, are the new young and inexperienced Night Warriors up to the task?

It all begins on the beach one quiet morning. The first three people in question, all strangers to each other, all stumble upon the body of a young woman who seems to have washed up on shore. A drowning death for sure, that is, until the police turn the body over. Feeding on the inner stomach that gave birth to them, eels unlike any known to science emerge. Caught off guard, the police first don't know what to do as the slippery creatures flee the scene, but then one officer decides to grab a specimen so they can study it and find out if some form of dangerous eel is stalking the shores. Big mistake. The eel, which is overly aggressive, latches on to the man and won't let go.

If you can't find a book called Night Warriors. You can try and find a book originally written as Nightspawn. It's really the same book (same story) except the publisher changed the title. Hope this helps in your search.
