Look, vampires don’t exist. It’s just not possible. Or so Eric believes, until he finds himself trying to juggle his day job, learn the do’s-and-don’ts of being one of the undead, and manage his new nature as a bloodthirsty predator. If that isn’t enough to make anyone crazy, Sasha and Eric find themselves being hunted by members of the Church of Light.
But wait, there’s more!
When tragedy strikes, Eric finds himself catapulted into an alternate world, to a place where he becomes a NIghtlord, battles a dragon, and comes into possession of the sword Firebrand in a rather, ah, unique way.
All-in-all, Eric really begins to question his life choices.
This is a long book. I’m going to present that right off, because when I say long, I mean loooong. (The Kindle version is almost 700 pages). The prospect of starting a novel the length of “The Stand” (which I felt drug on forever) was daunting at first, but I needn’t have worried. “Nightlord: Sunset” didn’t feel 700 pages long. The pace was fast from the jump and Mr. Whited hurls us into the adventure immediately. This novel really has it all; action, intrigue, danger, suspense, and a nice dash of humor. This is so much more than just a vampire novel or your run-of-the-mill fantasy or paranormal.
Mr. Whited’s characters are strong, complex, and amazingly relatable. I loved Eric’s wit and snark, and Bronze was pretty awesome. Sasha creeped me out at first, but once a little backstory was given on her, I totally understood why she was the way she was. I truly appreciated the lack of superfluous characters and the fact that everyone had a significant role made them easier to keep straight.
The way “Nightlord” is told—through Eric’s journal rather than the usual hovering narrative—was unusual for this kind of epic fantasy. While I often find the use of a first-person point-of-view to be a little lazy and often feel that it leaves the reader with a flawed perspective, I thought the technique worked very well here. In spite of the situations he finds himself in, Eric is able to ask good questions, laugh at himself, and retain his sense of curiosity. As I took this journey with him, I laughed, I cried, I rolled me eyes, and just generally had more feels I have with any other book in a long time.
Bottom line: Despite the occasional typo, “Nightlord” was an excellent read. It has it all and presents it in a unique light, making the usual tropes feel fresh. If you’re looking for a new fantasy saga to sink your teeth into (haha, awful joke, but I couldn’t help myself!), I would HIGHLY recommend the Nightlord series.
