The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . SONS OF DARKNESS (Night Vigil, #1) . . . These men may be considered misfit, undesirables, muck up of the worlds (Heaven and Hell) but they were here to show us that there were more. Travis and Brent were that something more than their lives could hold. And something less to be granted life in either world. They were here to prove that it was that something more, that something right they were capable of. Theses man showed us that we need not fear the things that go bump in the night for they were here to bump back.
The listen was quick and very entertaining. Jeffrey did the job just nicely. He gave clear voicing of each character. I say this with the fact that I listen at minimum of twice the speed and I still felt like Brent and Travis were friends that I just needed to know just a bit more about. Gail Z. Martin creates such entertaining urban fantasy. You find a world that is vivid and entertaining with complexities of world, characters and plot.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Gail Z. Martin. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
We are the Night Vigil.
We keep the Vigil, looking for the ones who can still be saved, the ones who aren't too far gone. We're the misfits and the muck-ups, unwanted by Heaven or Hell, given one last chance to atone for all the mistakes and missed chances, the pain we've caused others and ourselves, the good things we were afraid to do, and the bad things we embraced with open arms.
Unfinished business ties us to the mortal world, to make atonement, find absolution, satisfy retribution, get things right. You won't find a sorrier group of halfway-house heroes. No illusions left - about ourselves, humanity, or what's really out there in the darkness. Just a purpose, to go down fighting the good fight. Because this is our last chance.
One final chance to make it right, the thin red line of humanity against the evil that goes bump in the night, your best hope to make it through the hour of the wolf.
When a series of disappearances, suicides, and vengeful spirits cause havoc and death along a remote interstate highway, demon-hunting ex-priest Travis Dominick teams up with former special-ops soldier and monster-hunter Brent Lawson to end the problem with extreme prejudice.
