Audible is bringing it to you exclusively, for a limited time.The basic premise is this: it's 1817, and a man named Frederick Whithers is wallowing in jail for a crime he didn't commit, desperate to get out so he can go and commit it for real.

    Bruce Allred says: "A tale of vampires, money, mishap and great minds"

    Where does A Night of Blacker Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best read and most enjoyable books I have listened to in a long, long time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Night of Blacker Darkness?

    One of the best moments is the vampire discussion when they first meet our hero in the cemetary.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The multiple voices are well done and fit the various characters so well. The slow speech of the undertaker is marvelous and Keats is great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I would not call the book moving in a deep metaphyscal sense but I will admit I had to keep picking myself up off the floor when I had fallen laughing. If you call tears of myrth moving I would definately say I was moved.


    Any additional comments?

    What a wonderful book, what a wonderful reader. Truly an enjoyable listen. Sean Barrett takes an enjoyable, well written and wonderful tale and makes it so much more. Hats off to Sean and Dan. I must admit it was refreshing to see the true power of vampires not that stuff that others would have you believe.

    The exploites of our hero, the twists and turns of the plot are great. I will not give anything away because it is so much fun. Just know that when you think you have it figured out you will only be partly right and there is much more good stuff to come.

    May vampires always have the same problems, trials and success as experienced here.
