Publisher's Summary

It's not easy, being king. You can't always rule a kingdom and still do what needs to be done.

Eric - or King Halar, also known as the Demon King - has more than enough problems without the crown. But quitting the job of king isn't easy, either - unless you want to be beheaded. Most people regard that as an unsatisfactory way to quit. Even vampire lords tend to be cautious about guillotines. A king who loses his head has a real problem...or none at all.

It's time to sort some of these problems out, settle a few more, and kill the rest. But at what cost?

Knightfall is the fourth book of the Nightlord series. It picks up exactly where Orb (book three) ends, and carries on with an adventure of epic proportions!

A good sum up for the first 3

A little too long, due to the repetitive nature of the story. Not sure how many times Eric can go through the whole "woe is me" scenario, I started to block it out about half way through the book, along with "come to that" and "he admitted, she admitted".

I love the storyline, don't get me wrong and would put #5 on a wish list immediately. I guess with 4, 40+ hour books, you can't help but pick up on the idiosyncrasies of the main character. After that many hours together, it's like any other relationship - your other half may have their annoying habits - but you love them all the same!!

Good story however he does babble a bit.

I love the narration, and the story isn't bad. However I wonder how long the book would be if you removed say 1/2 of what I would say is pointless babble? I found myself tuning out during long periods of exposition on magic, or how things work in this fictional world and only started listen when something happened. I made a similar comment in my review of book 3, and was on the wall about giving book 4 a go. But hell its a 40 hour book, with a great narrator and an ok story so diffidently worth a credit.

Brilliant

Very few series capture muy imagination like this one. I put it up there with the Wheel of Time, Old Mans War, and the Mistborn series.
Sean Runnette is quickly becoming a favorite.

Depressingly boring - loved the first 3

There were so many opportunities for this book to shine. Somehow the author missed those opportunities in this book. He focused almost all of his attention on Eric's depression and spent almost no time developing other characters. Mary grew a bit, but as much as she's in the book her character is very 1 dimensional. Very "perfect" and against the contrast of Eric/Halar being so very whiny I didn't feel their dynamic. The whole thing with Yohan was one of the smaller portions of this book. Tons of time was spent building up the Yohan and then it's just super easy no problems to kill him. Like every battle in this book it was high on Eric's feelings and low on things actually happening. This book was about brooding. I sure hope that the next book is stronger and spends more time developing the side cast.

OMG....This book could be half the size.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book....and I liked the first three in the series. It is way too wordy. I'm sick of listening to the Night Lords inner thoughts....I want him to do something.

What could Garon Whited have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He should have had less dialogue explaining the thoughts of the Night Lord, and more action to move the story forward.

Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narrator is very good.

Great book(s)

These books are great. The story is complex and compleet like life it self. There is deep sadness, joy at the little things and so forth.

Boring, navel gazing and morally inept

After the last book I wasn't sure if I could continue the series. Now I know that I cannot. The politics are abysmal, the continual saccharine tone with an attempt at underlying menace gets really old really quickly. The constant self-analysis is tedious.

Fantastic

I rarely type out a review, generally I just star them and move on, but though the book was far less quick than the previous three, it was fantastic, and I hope there will be more to come!

Storytelling at its best<br />

When I lfirst started to lsten to the first book in the series I wasn't certain about Sean Runnette's voice. By the end if it I was and now I could not imagine anyone who could begin to match him.
The story telling is superb (if a little gory at times - after all, this is a book about monsters and vampires!) and I love the nuances between good and evil and strength and weakness that the book conveys all if which is perfectly captured by Mr Runnette.
Don't start the series here - you will be missing out, but definitely listen!

Good story - Sean Runnette = wow!

I enjoyed this. The story got a bit technical in parts though I appreciated the thought that went into it. Sean Runnette is just magic - I could listen to his voice all night - and sometimes did!

Bronze

First thee books amazing. Eagerly awaited fourth, disappointing.
Retribution could have been more detailed ie rest of family.
Evil orbs disappearance too easy.
And the lost of BRONZE really just too bad and not necessary. Retirement with Bronze could have been achieved

Good, but lack the power of the last few.

A good book, but not a fantastic book. The story is too rambling and disjointed and doesn’t have the punch expected in key places like with the deaths of certain characters! Unfortunately it’s a rather disjointed book, unlike the the last few, which were absolutely excellent. I hope the author plans a follow up and that it will be as powerful and moving as the first few books in the Nightlord series.

Garon Whited is a true genius.

Will there be a book 5. ?
These books are truly amazing in their scope and creativity.
Garon Whited demonstrates a vast knowledge of all things especially his loved physics. Whited is a brilliant writer with a vast intellect.
The Nightlord is a complex character who constantly suffers from self doubt.
Despite his constant self examinations he proves to be a true humanitarian.
My only surprise is the way Whited deals with love and sex. The Nightlord who never lacks female attention, seems shy on this subject and doesn't deal well with it in the story. He seems ambivalent in all his romantic female relationships.
This is still my most favourite series ever (so far) and lastly I love Sean Runnette who is 'The Nightlord'

Believably breaks the immersion.

Any additional comments?

The faults of the character are really well implemented in the words of the recounting but also massively hurt the pacing of events.
His qualities that likely hold his gift for enchanting synergies also saturate the story with boring details representing his train of thought.
His appreciation of method and science makes him a little prejudice and impatient toward the less critical minds of the "gods", alienating those who wait eagerly to see his conflict and discoveries with the pantheon.
Cant wait for the things set up in this book to bloom in the next!
