Présentation de l'éditeur


Can two vampires on the run save the world from destruction?

Plunge into grand mystery and adventure in a world of vampires, werewolves and other immortals by the bestselling author of the Black Tower Trilogy.

When a powerful figure in the Immortal Community is killed, two vampires, Ruegger and Danielle, are forced to run for it in order to find out who ordered the murder and why. The two vampires are notorious throughout the Community for only feeding on humans that deserve it -- murderers and rapists -- as well as other immortals.

If an immortal steps out of line and preys on undeserving humans, Ruegger and Danielle will (if they can) take them down -- and feed from them. Thus the two are sarcastically known throughout the Community as the Marshals.

Now, to stop the world from becoming embroiled in a vicious war, Ruegger and Danielle must follow the threads of a strange conspiracy that spans continents and many races, some exotic and particularly deadly. The Dark Lord, the vampire king of the Community, may himself be involved.

˃˃˃ To find out the truth, Ruegger and Danielle will have to dodge werewolf assassins, zombies, and two especially nasty Jamaican voodoo gods.

One thing is certain: if they survive and unravel the strange heart of the mystery, the world will never be the same again.

Note: This is Part One of a four-part series.

Biographie de l'auteur

I write fast-paced, atmospheric tales of fantasy and the supernatural. I want my readers to have a great time with my writing, no matter the genre. I hope you have as much fun reading my novels as I do writing them. I've been working for years with a major literary agency. While I'm still working with them, I've grown weary of slogging my way through the publishing industry and have decided to take my career into my own hands. I've started making certain of my works available through Amazon, both in print and as ebooks. I like Breaking Bad, LOST, Mexican food, Star Wars, Evil Dead, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly -- and pizza. Deep dish. I have a wife and two cats (though the cats would probably want me to put them first!). Until next time, happy reading

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great read 2 juin 2014
Par Janja - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
If you like True Blood or Anne Rice, you should definitely check this out. There are a lot of characters and fun supernatural stuff, but our core duo drive the plot. These vampires kick a**.

SPOILERS ahead. The novel starts off in the Sahara, of all places. Ruegger and Danielle are being chased by bounty hunters, at the same time their trying to reach these sacred pillars. Vampires trying to reach sacred pillars in the Sahara! If that doesn’t get your attention, I don’t know what will.

There’s also on the trail of this evil vampire called Triboli. You see, Ruegger and Danielle aren’t just any vampires. Blade-like, they also go around killing other vampires that are bad. Unlike Blade, it’s not because they’re half-breeds or anything, or because they’re the only ones with a soul like in Angel. All vampires and werewolves and stuff have the choice in this universe whether they allow their power to corrupt them or not. Many do. When that happens, the Marshals get crackin’.

Anyway, they get mixed up in some crazy stuff. There’s a war going on, and some murders, and our vamps are smack in the middle of it. Woot woot! There’s lots of action and many twists and turns. The story had me tapping my kindle, racing to get to the next page, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Vampire adventure story 6 juin 2014
Par Brianna Morisson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I am not sure I am able to explain the fascination that vampire books have on women. It is probably the mystery and the power that such characters transmit to readers. No matter where is this fascination coming from, “The Living Night” proved to be an interesting vampire story, creating an alternate world where 2 vigilantes jump into a great adventure to save the balance of the world. A fast paced adventure novel, very well written and structure – an overall very nice reading. I would say as well that it goes beyond the classical vampire novel, and turns out as a good book and a very nice reading.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fast-paced supernatural thriller! 19 août 2014
Par Jason vigorito - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was lucky enough to win a copy of "The Living Night: Part One," by Jack Conner, via Goodreads Giveaways. I put my name in the hat to win a copy because I've seen an extensive number of titles relating to the supernatural/horror/monsters/etc., and I figured it was about time I dipped my toe in the literary lake. I have been pleasantly surprised with this my debut read into such material.

When I want a fun-filled easy book, I tend toward books in the Thriller genre; turns out, "The Living Night" happens to be one, albeit one with vampires, werewolves, zombies, voodoo gods, and a menagerie of other nocturnal creatures. The story spans the globe–several times–from Alaska to the Congo. The action never relents, leaving the reader immersed in one action scene after the next after the next, with hardly a respite; for, if characters aren't fighting, they're strategizing about fighting, and if not strategizing they're discussing fighting, and if not discussing fighting they're involving themselves in some sort of grotesquery...or having sex. Conner must have been ramped up on one stimulating substance or another, or possesses a rapid-fire mind, in order to write such narrative intensity. So unless you prefer the traditional rhythmic cycles of most other thriller or adventure stories, you'll be left panting and backpedaling rather quickly upon beginning this book. I didn't mind the adrenaline-rush, because it kept me on my toes and required my enthusiastic concentration to keep up with events.

One thing that makes for good reading involves a cohesive narrative involving a world of rules and believable characters. Science fiction and fantasy may rank as the most difficult to produce in this regard: the truest sense of world-building involves the irony of creating a complete world from scratch–history, civilizations, creatures, non-existent elements (whether magic, superpowers, technology, etc.)–while relating on some level to reality. In Conner's case, he's taken the tact of the real world and combined it with a whole secret level of mythologized horror creatures living amongst us unbeknownst to most of mankind: a dichotomous world of mortals and immortals co-habitating the globe. Conner does well in providing rules for a cohesive, logically fantastical world. One example involves set ways in how mortals (human-kind) and immortals (vampires, werewolves, etc.) interact with each other: mortals are sustenance and can be controlled by immortals' varying degrees of psychic mind-control powers, but mortals have the technological capacity to kill immortals. Another brief example considers the biological parameters of each species and how they rank hierarchically in a cultural sense in the immortal community, based upon power, both physical and political. Conner sets the rules and, like a good creator, doesn't break them.

Briefly, a third strength of the book involves dialogue. Dialogue can frustrate the most easy-going reader if it comes across as canned or droll. Conner creates exciting, flavorful conversation. Due to the requirement for background, a not insignificant amount of exchanges involve elementary knowledge among the characters, but needs to be spoken regardless for the reader's understanding. That aside, the dialogue isn't off-putting or canned, and enhances the narrative's rapidity.

A fourth aspect of "The Living Night" I enjoyed was its complexity. There are overarching macro plot-lines: world history revisionism, a covert world-wide conspiracy to kill powerful immortals, and an overt war between large factions among them. There are also the micro plot-lines: interactions among various small groups and individual characters, immortals hunting down other immortals, and the dynamics of personal relationships among immortal characters. Conner took on a heavy load with this book, and he handled it adeptly considering the scope and complexities involved with the narrative.

Which leads to an eventual weakness with "The Living Night." Because Conner has such a relentless pace and juggles so many characters and story lines, he has difficulty maintaining focus when imperatively jumping from one group to the next. Large intervals of many pages go by between a character's personal narrative's continuity, leaving the reader hanging and having to switch currents constantly between plot-lines. Due to the book's epic nature, this is a natural tendency and one difficult to overcome.

As explained before, Conner performs well in creating a world run within its set parameters, but one aspect of this topic that I didn't care for was the emphasis of drugs, booze, and sex, among immortals. By their dark nature, I understand them as unsavory creatures drawn to destructive habits and mindsets, partially symbolizing their evil embodiments, but it seemed unnecessary and over-the-top to me. The immortals' raison d'être seems to be fighting, raping, and substance bingeing, with fleeting passions of lust and constant singular struggles for sheer power.

In addition, perhaps because I am a stickler for it, I grew frustrated often with the considerable amount of typos found throughout the book.

As this is the only the beginning of a series, I consider "The Living Night" the opening scene in an epic supernatural tale. I look forward to reading the further adventures of the many characters involved, and I hope to find more depth in immortal character development–as individuals and as species–in upcoming installments. Let's keep the adrenaline flowing, Mr. Conner!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Fangs of Karma 23 août 2014

In the supernatural world, Ruegger and Danielle are the Fangs of Karma. Although they're the good guys, they're being pursued. The vampiric duo must scour the world for clues to help them unravel a dark conspiracy. At the same time, they have to keep ahead of their pursuers, who are determined to kill them.

Jack Conner's The Living Night: Part One lives up to its billing. It IS an epic tale of vampires, werewolves, horror, fantasy and action.

Mr. Conner is also the prolific and talented author of Sword and Sorcery: Empire of the Worm. The series offers a fascinating combination of fantasy, horror, and the supernatural.

I read a lot of non-fiction, so it's nice to get into something that can intrigue the more creative side of my mind. This book did just that. It was a fantastic read that really immersed me in the scenes and situations of the characters. Can't wait for the next part!
