It is 2553, and the three-decade long Covenant War that defined a generation has suddenly drawn to a close. Yet in the remotest parts of human space, tensions remain that threaten to overflow into another full-scale conflict. Beneath the surface of the planet Gao lies a vast cavern system renowned for its therapeutic effects and rumored miraculous cures. But now Gao natives are turning up brutally murdered down there - violent acts that happen to coincide with the recent arrival of a UNSC research battalion.

The voice over is fantastic. Enough emotion to give it a punch. Gotta love all the different voices. Truly great.

In New York, there's a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge, a boggle in Central Park, and a beautiful vampire in a penthouse on the Upper East Side. Of course, most humans are oblivious to this, but Cal Leandros is only half-human. His father's dark lineage is the stuff of nightmares - and he and his entire otherworldly race are after Cal.

Would you listen to Nightlife again? Why?

Yes. Love the voice of Cal. Just like what I would think. Great to listen to when working out.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nightlife?

The point where Niko and Cal's friends said goodbye to him as they were going to kill Cal/Darkling.

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

The snarky tone that he can get to his voice and all the other inflections he does so well.

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

When Cal saw his brother taken by Abbigor.

Any additional comments?

Superb reading of the book but I was wondering if the was he said Auphe was how Rob told him to say it or if that was something that he brought himself. Awesome if he did. It really sounds like someone punching him in the gut every time he says it.
