Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Angela Knight shows her brilliance by combining the very hot vampire genre with Grail lore, and creates a very original concept. A concept that will put her on the bestsellers list! The first in the series, Master of the Night, we get a wonderful, fast pace tale that will have you hooked from the start. In September, smart people <winks> had a taste of the hot premise in Hot Blooded, an anthology (Knight, Christine Feehan, Emma Holly and Maggie Shayne), where Knight premiered her storyline with her tale "Seduction's Gift". In that novella, we learnt the "rules" of Knight's new magical realm.

Eschewing the Ann Rice's sexless bloodsucker and the promiscuous predator male who equates blood with good sex, Knight has struck out on her own - and conjured gold! Rice's writing while amazing, left me cold where romance was concerned. Her vamps were often Androgynous, if not gay or bisexual, so this limited the range of emotions provoked by her prose. On the other end of the pendulum - the Vampire as a strictly romance hero always presented me with troubles. Problems of disease aside, how could a woman love a man who must go around "necking" with hundreds of dames to stay alive? This seems more a male oriented fantasy - the accepting of a hero "sleeping around" on the heroine. Knight deftly handles both of these extremes, by promptly dismissing them, and travelling her own path. Vampires are not as we know them from Hollywood created lore. First off, they are male, never female. They can drink the blood of humans, but it's not the focus of their existence, not how they survive. Most would rather not. Where they get their true life giving essence is they must drink the blood of a Maja - a witch, and the Maja must have the vampire take the blood in order for her to survive.

Ms. Knight is a rather new author for me (I've only read "Jane's Warlord") so I really have no preconceived ideas about what she is capable of. As a result I found her latest effort to be not only a fun read, but thought her take on the legend of Arthur and Merlin to be not only different but also creative.

This paranormal read offers it all, Vampires, fairies, new worlds, and even a hit of reality. Combined a yummy dark hero, and a strong no nonsense heroine and you have a read that will make you laugh out loud at times, and sigh as well. Ms. Knight has penned a very sensual read so the reader should be prepared for this when they open the pages of the book. This is not to say that it's over the top, but it is steamier than your average romance read.

Ms. Knight is a very talented author and one that I highly recommend. Her reads are fast-paced, sensual, with enough action and suspense (in this case can Reece and Erin save the world from a destructive demon bent on bring the end of mankind) to keep the reader turning the pages until the end.

Having had no taste whatsoever of Angela Knight's novels, I guess I took a risk by buying the first three "Master" books without reading any reviews and paying full price instead of getting them from EBay. So what grabbed my attention? The paranormal plot. Vampires, dragons, fairies, you name it, they are all in here. As far as the Camelot legend goes, Angela Knight defies everything that has been told and creates her very own legend.

Kicking off the series is MASTER OF THE NIGHT, a story about a vampire who moonlights as a CIA agent. In order to protect mankind from self-destruction, Merlin and Nimue has created a world where mystical beings known as Magekind live in Avalon, and humans live on Earth where each nation is assigned a vampire Champion who works with mortal government. In America, Reece has been the designated Champion for over two hundred years. In all those times, never had his life been in any grave danger until he meets another agent, Erin Grayson.

When she lost her partner at the hands of the cult, Death Sabbat, Erin swore to avenge him by taking down their leader, whom she thought was Reece. But when they are both held captive, she realizes that a power beyond anything she ever imagined is manipulating them in order for the dark lord, Geirolf, to claim the ultimate power. What's worse, Reece tells her that she is descended from a powerful bloodline and their fate relies on her acceptance of her destiny - a destiny that brings great risks to her life.

Well, the opening page of the book is certainly attention-grabbing; ensuring that readers are fascinated by the twist the author has given to the legend of Arthur, Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table. Imagine them living as vampires! All I could think was: Wow!

I absolutely loved this book! It's the second thing I've read by Angela Knight.

I would have to say the the best part was the interactions between Reece and Erin and how they dealt with the problems that rose in their relationship because of duty to a 'bigger picture'.

I would recommend reading "Seduction's Gift" (Lancelot and Grace's story) in the anthology Hot Blooded before reading Master of the Night.
