Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Parr’s Landing, population 1,528...and shrinking.

The year is 1972. Widowed Christina Parr, her daughter Morgan, and her brother-in-law Jeremy have returned to the remote northern Ontario mining town of Parr’s Landing, the place from which Christina fled before Morgan was born, seeking refuge. Dr. Billy Lightning has also returned in search of answers to the mystery of his father’s brutal murder. All will find some part of what they seek - and more.

Built on the site of a decimated 17th-century Jesuit mission to the Ojibwa, Parr’s Landing is a town with secrets of its own buried in the caves around Bradley Lake. A 300-year-old horror slumbers there, calling out to the insane and the murderous for centuries, begging for release - an invitation that has finally been answered.

One man is following that voice, cutting a swath of violence across the country, bent on a terrible resurrection of the ancient evil, plunging the town and all its people into an endless night.

Good read, even though it's a bit disjointed

So, the concept is really good, and Rowe's writing is good. However, some aspects were rough. He has a throw away story in the beginning of the book that really doesn't make any sense why it would be in there; his back stories on the characters are MADDENINGLY drawn out, so much so that it takes a away a bit from the main story; and the coolest part of the story (the last few chapters ) would have been much better served in the beginning of the story. However the old adage is true, those who can, write and those who can't....write Audible reviews. That being said he did a good job on this; the Narrator (Kevin Stillwell) did a really great job!! Great tone and speed

I enjoyed it

This was a good listen for the most part. Good characters though their motivations and drivers may feel odd to some because of the differences between the early 70's and today. Vicious vampires. My favorite. I enjoyed it.

The book goes off into another direction in the last few chapters of it, to explain the origins of the vampires. It threw me a little.

strong start

I really loved the first half of this book but was truly dissapointed with the second half and way it ended. I would have loved to hear more about christina and Morgan and what happened to them!!

The main story was great, but the end drug on.

overall, this is a very good vampire novel. What heard it for me was the last couple chapters after the main story takes place. I found it extremely dull and slow which is a shame because the main story was very good. It would have been four stars if not for that.

No real ending to this plodding, overstuffed work

I was left wondering what the heck happened in the primary storyline in this novel. It just kind of peters off without a resolution, while the author then dives into an, albeit interesting, origin story for the antagonist. Too much time is spent in developing irrelevant characters also.

The narrator was ok, but his cadence left a lot to be desire at many points.

Truly Frightening

Enter, Night is a deeply moving and, at times, quite terrifying vampire novel. The book is broken into two distinct-but-related stories. The first is set in 1972 and the second takes place in the days when Canada was still "New France". The story builds slowly but when it kicks in, it kicks in with a vengeance.

A warning to readers with delicate sensibilities: this isn't the book for you. It's both vividly gruesome and sexually explicit.

Kevin Stillwell does a superb job with the narration.

My first from Mr. Rowe, but not my last.

Something has awakened in the small town of Parrs Landing. And it’s hungry.

This one really had 70’s early 80’s horror vibe to it. I liked the eccentric cast of characters and the pacing was spot on. Interestingly, the ending was a flashback to the beginning and had a much different feel to it as if they were 2 separate stories. Should have been distracting, but somehow managed to stay cohesive.

Kevin Stillwell nailed the narration for this one. Dude was spot on with his cadence and pacing. Very well done.

My first from Mr. Rowe, but not my last.

Good Thriller

It took me a while to start this book. But once u did it was pretty darn good. It definitely had moments when the story was drawn out and uninteresting but once past those bumps it was good. I didn’t care for the ending (spoiler) the prelude to the story at the end took a really long time to get into but the very ending was unexpected and made me gasp. I would recommend this book definitely.

Scared me worse than Salem's Lot

This was a really terrifying Vampire novel. I mean what could be scarier than a 12 year old boy's black vampiric lab (dog) going to play "fetch" with him before dawn. As they climbed higher and higher into the dark mountains that the dog was bitten in my heart was in my throat! If you love to be scared, watch this!!!
