(Book Tour) Son’s of Darkness – Gail Z. Martin

What’s it all about?:

“We are the Night Vigil.

We keep the Vigil, looking for the ones who can still be saved, the ones who aren’t too far gone. We’re the misfits and the muck-ups, unwanted by Heaven or Hell, given one last chance to atone for all the mistakes and missed chances, the pain we’ve caused others and ourselves, the good things we were afraid to do, and the bad things we embraced with open arms.

Unfinished business ties us to the mortal world, to make atonement, find absolution, satisfy retribution, get things right. You won’t find a sorrier group of halfway-house heroes. No illusions left – about ourselves, humanity, or what’s really out there in the darkness. Just a purpose, to go down fighting the good fight. Because this is our last chance.

One final chance to make it right, the thin red line of humanity against the evil that goes bump in the night, your best hope to make it through the hour of the wolf.

When a series of disappearances, suicides, and vengeful spirits cause havoc and death along a remote interstate highway, demon-hunting ex-priest Travis Dominick teams up with former special-ops soldier and monster-hunter Brent Lawson to end the problem with extreme prejudice”

My Thoughts:

After taking a rather longer than expected break from blogging, I am back and I bring you a book tour stop that I decided to take a chance on, and I can say i was not disappointed.

Welcome to the book one in an exciting new series Night Vigil. Not had much exposure to urban fantasy so this is a fairly new genre to me, so as little as i have to compare this too i really enjoyed this first in the series.

A fairly easy to follow storyline, mixed in with believable action and if there was music I could hear a rock soundtrack from start to finish

Both leading characters were troubled but very well written and although we find out a little about each man, I would love to know more and hope than we learn more back story as this series progress.

As you all know I’m a very visual listener and this was a journey , the scenes and locations all came alive in my imagination as I listened along.

Let’s talk about the artwork for a second, so vivid as you can see from the banner and picture, it’s a visual feast.

Let’s welcome the narrator of this fine tale , a new name to me but someone I will definitely want to hear more from, Jeffery Kafer, his tone and way he reads the story and characters, every word sets the scenes perfectly.

Gail is a new author to me , but I like her writing style is straight to the point and weather the research was real or fictional a lot of work went into the background and characters and creatures . If you are looking for something that bit different to distract you from wherever your head may be then I recommend this as a good starting point.

Ghostly Tales: An Audible Christmas Gift

ghostlytales

Book Blurb:

“The days are getting colder, the nights are getting longer, and as Christmas approaches the time is high for some ghostly tales. As an exclusive gift for Audible members, settle down, snuggle up and listen to four chilling ghost stories, read by Simon Callow. Four great stories, one master storyteller – what could be simpler than that?

Also featuring Sally Phillips, John Banks and Dan Starkey, this exclusive recording includes ‘Between the Lights’ by E.F. Benson, ‘A Strange Christmas Game’ by J.H. Riddell, ‘Was It an Illusion’ by Emelia B. Edwards and ‘The Signalman’ by Charles Dickens.”

My Thoughts:

With Christmas just round the corner, a wee review before the big day. This little early present had dropped into my email inbox, as it has been such a great year to be an audible member they wanted to share their happiness.

This delightfully scary collection expertly narrated by the great Simon Callow, is a great way to frighten your way into this years festivities.

Containing four very different tales of christmas terror, between ‘The Lights’, ‘A Strange Christmas Game’, ‘Was It An Illusion’ and finally, ‘The Signalman’.

As I said, not one of the stories is the same, each taking your imagination to a different time, place and people. The ghosts… some are obvious, but most leave you wondering “…was it really there?”. These are the type of stories I enjoy most, doubting your own eyes, mind and sanity, best way to occupy a dark wintry evening.

If you like a bit of a fright stepping into Christmas I thoroughly recommend this four story bundle.

So with that I wish all my followers a fantastic Christmas and New Year celebrations, and I look forward to discovering more brilliant audiobooks with you in 2018.
