    Long ago when the Earth was flat, beautiful, indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above; curious, passionate demons lived in the exotic Underearth realm below; and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle. Azhrarn, Lord of the Demons and the Darkness, was the one who ruled the night, and many mortal lives were changed because of his cruel whimsy. And yet, Azhrarn held inside his demon heart a profound mystery which would change the very fabric of the Flat Earth forever.

    Kat Hooper says: "A gothic fairytale"
    "As intended"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Night’s Master the most enjoyable?

    I've always loved this book. I mean, it's written like a series of short fables that weave together perfectly. It's meant to leave you longing and curious, because that's what fables do. Anyone expecting this story to outline every single detail like a badly written four book series made famous by desperate mothers is going to be disappointed.
    This is a poet's tale, a lover's story. It's meant for dreamers and people that read between the lines and enjoy the spaces more.
    It's perfect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite is Zorayas, by far. Her story is one of the most troubling and intriguing. She's made powerful by image and malice, yet it was her birthright. But really every single character in this is lovable and enjoyable.


    What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's a good reader. I've listened to lots of audio books and come across many awful readers. And while she does make you slightly sleepy, the story should be enough to enchant you into staying awake. I listen to it right after I wake up, and have had no problems staying aware.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It's a fable, it's a myth, it's a tale. It's also a very unique gem.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't have eternity to write my praise for this book. Otherwise, I would gladly spend it. But I think Tanith Lee does that herself.
