The story is fairly bloody and violent. That didn't bother me too much, but there were several times I couldn't see where it made sense to the story. It was sort of violence for violence's sake. It didn't feel necessary.
Here are my Pros and Cons -
Pros: I thought the premise was really interesting. Having the vampires go back to the Roman empire is nothing short of brilliant. I liked how things were intertwined.
I liked that eating the hearts gives the vampires' powers.
I LOVED Dave the werewolf! For some reason, his arc in the book make me cackle.
I loved the surprise with Chloe near the end. I did NOT see that coming!
I really liked all the imagery - weird and otherwise. Like, when they go through a hole in the ground to get to the vampire's homes. Weird.
I like the term/title Fortier. Sounds cool.
The things I list as Cons are really technical issues, not the story itself.
Cons: TOO MUCH SMIRKING. 98% of that word has to go. For one thing, it is much too repetitious throughout the book. Also, this word is overused and under descriptive for more than one or two facial expressions. By halfway through the book (or maybe sooner...) I was rewording each 'smirk' in my head.
I couldn't figure out why Alfred, the Fortier, was randomly killing people.
To me, there was just just some poor sentence structure and a few things that never really made a lot of sense in context to the story.
WHAT HAPPENED TO DAVE IN THOSE TWO DAYS HE WAS THE HEAD OF THE WEREWOLF PACK!!??! I'm dying to know!
Overall, I enjoyed the story but there were quite a few times I had to backtrack to see if I could figure out what was going on. It was as if the author could see the whole thing in his head but maybe didn't get all the information down on paper. I felt like I was missing a lot of information throughout the story. I never could get what had happened to Hannibal in relation to the story. I felt like there was a lot of jumping around without context. It might be that the author just needs a professional editor to help tie everything together.
I did have a couple of irks that kept this from being a 5 star read for me. While I don’t mind violence and enjoyed how vivid some of the scenes were from a Writer’s point of view, there were times when I felt like the story was violent just to be violent. It reminded me a bit of horror movies that put gore in for shock value. I enjoyed the scenes that moved the plot along and wished the scenes that didn’t stayed out. Again though, this only knocked it back a star, so this isn’t anything that swayed me from loving the book too much!
I love the premise and delivery of this novel. The world building is awesome. The vampire history is detailed and awesome. I really did think this was a more adult and edgier vampire novel. With a fast-paced plot and an ending I didn’t see coming, I’m a big fan!
The characters were equally as intriguing. A definite character driven novel, M.G. Darwish knows how to write characters the readers will get attached to. I think Dave might have been my favorite character. He cracked me up and gave some much needed comedic relief.
Overall, I am very pleased with The Long Night! I think the plot and characters were well written. A good warning to those with a weak stomach, this might not be the book for you. Otherwise, I recommend this one!

The Long Night: Blood Will Be Served is filled with Alfred journey and with him getting everything in order and his plans made to take care of this beast that has been a thorn in everyone's side for a long time. The Long Night:Blood Will Be Served does not lack in the action department as Alfred and his new friend Fenrir who just happens to be a werewolf as they make their way to the beast. Alfred has enlisted Fenrir's help in taking down this big bad beast and changing the world for all vampires and werewolves.
The Long Night: Blood Will Be Served is a fast paced read that has lots of vampire fighting with lots of blood and gore that kept the pages turning. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The Long Night: Blood Will Be Served has it all like action, fighting, vampires, werewolves, blood and gore with twists and turns around every corner.
I highly recommend The Long Night: Blood Will Be Served to all vampire and werewolf fans. If you like your books filled with lots of killing, blood, goriness, death, action, and twists then you are going to absolutely fall in love with The Long Night: Blood Will Be Served.
