My name is Pandora, and though my face might not look familiar to you, you do know me. I'm a Nephilim. What does that mean? I'm half demon, what's my other name? Lust. I'm the dark craving that drives you mad, makes you want, makes you reckless and stupid. I'm the drug you'll do anything to get your hands on. But I'm not all bad. I fight for light, for goodness and truth. I love my job, killing vampires and werewolves, zombies, and freaks... it's what makes me happy. But people are starting to disappear and lately I've felt a dark presence lurking around me. I think it might be a death priest and that's really bad. There isn't much a demon like me fears, but I fear them. This should have been easy, me killing the fanged freaks, getting rid of my pesky priest problem, but I'm about to be betrayed by the one person I thought I could trust with my life and before the night is through I'll be covered in crimson... All Hallows Night: Secrets and truths, lies and red herrings… which is which? That’s what Pandora’s trying to figure out. Ever since the death of her best, and probably only friend by her own hands, she’s not sure who to trust anymore. The Priest is dead. The Gray Man is… she’s not even sure what. Luc, well, Luc is Luc. The Order has sent her deep into the heart of Mexico to investigate a potential zombie uprising. She arrives at the start of the Dia de los Muertos festival—a celebration for the dead and immediately things don’t feel right to her. For one, bodies (the living kind) keep disappearing. They’re not being kidnapped, no, if only things were that simple. Literally there one second, gone the next, she’s not sure what to make of it. On top of that mum’s are floating all over the place. Is that merely symbolism associated with the festival, or is it a clue of something far more sinister? In this explosive sequel to Crimson Night, an old ally returns and a shocking truth is revealed. One that will turn her investigation into The Order’s duplicity on its head and make Pandora question everything she ever thought she knew… Book 3 (Howler's Night) and Book 4 (Red Rain) NOW AVAILABLE! ...

    Free: First two books in the series, on US Amazon 22 March 2016. I saw some people had book 1 on their TBR list, so I thought I'd share.

    It took a while for me to get into this, and at first I struggled to hold interest, as it seemed quite a typical urban fantasy/paranormal romance. However, there were some elements which took it from a standard 2 star (it was okay) to a 3 star (I liked it), for me. NB this would be a 4 star rating on Amazon!While I'm not sure that Pandora, the lead character, is convincing as an ancient Nephilim, she is still quite enjoyable to read. I liked the idea of her feeding off sex, although it is never made clear if it's the orgasm she needs, or the physical contact, or if she siphons off people's energy (and whether she could just masturbate instead...), but with suspension of disbelief firmly in place, the whole thing is quite entertaining. I like that she is having a heap of sex and isn't painted as a 'bad woman' because of it. I loved the relationship between Pandora and Kemen, very nice. I also liked the tension with Vyxen- why did Luc do it, why? The character of Grace is interesting- a hard-as-nails old lady who gives as good as she gets.These books are really about the love triangle between Pandora, Luc and Asher. The two male romantic leads are your stereotypical aggressive, overbearing, super-hot and well-endowed alpha males. They both adore Pandora and fight over her. Standard PR format. This kind of thing is overdone in this genre IMO but the author did a decent job, considering I've read this kind of male and this kind of situation a million times. It wasn't too bad until the end of the second book where it got a bit much with all the growling and wall punching and comparing of wang-size. Really never worked out why this is considered so hot- these guys would do my head in. Luc has a marginal element of interest to his character because he just can't admit he loves Pandora, and Asher (cool name!) has a dark secret in his past. But otherwise, not a lot to these fellas beyond the alpha stuff (so far, I suspect they'll develop as the series goes on). Kemen and Bubba are miles more interesting as characters, for me.The plot gives a good job at being involved and sets up a mystery regarding The Order and a prophecy about Pandora. It takes a back seat to the love thing, in many ways, but I did find myself wondering about the Gray Man and who he was, and what the real story was with Grace.Overall, this is a fun paranormal romance. I'm not sure why I liked it as much as I did, to be honest, as it's nothing I haven't encountered before. It does a good job of feeling like a book-shaped comfort blanket, though, and is definitely enjoyable. I'm going to buy the next ones, and I hardly ever do that.

    I want you to understand it really is two books. So, the first half is finished. These books are about a dark carnival type of people (all demons).. it is dark and dank and not all sweet and rosey the way most women like their fantasies when it comes to otherworldliness. There is more sex than I can handle in this but is not unrealistic it's only a couple of paragraphs as opposed to pages and pages. I took my time reading this because it was so dark and so creepy. When I got out the other end and finished half of the book I think I might've liked it a little bit more than I thought I would . There are some tough things going on with our heroine, and she's just starting to figure somethings out. She still prays to God and she still has a big heart but make no mistake..she plays a demon in The first part and I'm sure she will likely be a demon through the second book and in case you bought the two books thinking that was the end… It certainly is not after reading the book I looked around a bit and there are actually four books to the series. Book 3 and a book 4 are purchased separately. Because I cannot separate these books when I finish the other book or the other half of this book I am giving the on, I may change my rating in order to include the second book. This will be harder on the author because obtaining a four-star Rating with me means the story is excellent. I always say if I mark five stars look to buy the movie rights. Four is excellent. If you don't mind finishing the book and feeling dirty and corrupted in ways you've never thought go ahead and give it a shot. I recommend it highly and yes I will read the second half of this book (book number two). Read this book with the lights on. I don't think it is a scary book but it is creepy in an awesome way. Book 2 in this set is awesome and if I could give it another half of a star I would say the series ranks at near perfection. 4 1/2 stars for this to book introduction. Will I read the other two books? No. There is no cliffhanger and I believe it ended well enough to move on. Now if you wanted to find out more about zombies and demons of all kinds by all on! For me, this was the first series of books that I read about or that might have had a zombie storyline. I don't think I'm quite ready for those demons yet.

    I tried to get into this book and I gave it a fair shot. It was really hard for me to get into. I have always been open minded when reading fantasy involving demons, vampires, etc. However, this one seemed to be trying too hard in my opinion. To me, it seemed more about sex than the actual story. The underlying story that is present was far more interesting than the sex. Don't get me wrong, I love a good naughty book as much as the next girl, but this was weird. The story had a lot of potential, but I find myself dragging myself to read this book. It follows this Neph (weird demon/humanish creature) and the gang of Nephs she belongs to. Most of the book revolves around her inner demon, Lust. Who, like her name, is lusty. Haha. It started to get interesting as Pandora (the Neph) started to fall victim to another monster who may or may not have wanted to kill her (I really don't know). It started to get really interesting, but then it began to fall flat and revert back to being about Lust. I dunno, I just could not follow. It didn't do it for me, unfortunately. I had to DNF this book after almost halfway through the combo (which I believe was almost all of book 1). I just couldn't get into it.

    Nephilim, Death Priests, Zombies, Demons, prophecies and a fight of light and dark...just wow!These first two books were the beginning of a fantastic series. Interesting, as it's told from the half-demon, Pandora's standpoint. And she appears to be our heroine. She's definitely the subject of The Order's prophecy. The books include a crazy cast of characters - a bunch of Nephilim, Dora, Luc, Keman, Bubba; a death priest, Billy/Asher; vampires; zombies and human liaisons. The Nephilim run an unconventional circus and are a family, until crazy things start happening and Pandora is right in the middle of it. This is a crazy ride and I just couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read book 3!

    Excellent two book set!Cannot get better! I save 5 stars for buying movie rights. This book has a dirty gross demon vibe. Great storyline exists, second half went faster as I got used to what I can only describe as a more realistic monster vibe....there is no human\vampire attraction. Not a cotton candy love story...

    Wow better than the firstAlthough the writing was great as was the story in both books, I really did love it and it was so different than anything else I have read, I'm sad to say the last half of the second book had some bad editing. Enough so that I had to re-read sentences over a few times for them to makes sense. The editor forgot to remove words, so a word like "for" would be in there twice in different spots because the author wasn't sure how to word the sentence, like which ways does this sound best? and then no one removed the second word or rearranged the words correctly. This happened more than a few times and that really kind of ruins it for me.This book was really good, fast paced and too well written for this kind of sloppiness. I think you need a new editor! But besides all that I did like this story and plan on reading the rest. This was the first two books by the way, so it was a really good read. Both were as I said fast paced, I really liked the characters and loved Pandora and Asher. I can't wait to find out more about him though. Really I loved how all the characters were written. Not too much I go but enough you get the idea of who they are although I'd like to find out more about envy and her life.

    I think this series had a lot of potential, but became a little too caught up in its desire to be risqué with out offending the general YA audienceI got through the first installment, and a bit into the second, but was left feeling unsatisfied by the indifference of it trying to be one thing or the other. On the one hand, It felt like it wanted to be erotica, but was just too pg to make that leap, almost as though the author wouldn't jump into the sexually charged side of the story enough to make it good, or couldnt find a way to tell the story in a tasteful way. On the other it wanted to be a paranormal story geared towards the YA audience. I feel it tried too hard to be both, and so failed. It was more adult than I would let my daughter read, but to of for me (given the premise if the story). My personal opinion is to either embrace the smut and find a way to write it tastefully, or leave the smut out of the story. Since the story is about the demon lust, leaving it out would be a difficult task to contemplate. You can write a tastefully erotic story with out it being dirty, but you will need to leave the YA audience to do so.

    I have to say that this book completely blew me away! It was jam packed full of twists, turns, betrayals, and then "the truth" coming out. It keep me on my toes till the very end and even then I was drooling for book 3 and 4 so I could get the rest of the story! You have a book that is semi horror while at the same time a love story... granted with a twist! Now, I hate Zombie books.. in fact most horror books.. do not read them at all. But this I could not put down. I was cheering for Lust and Dora from the start in book 1. Then you add all the little supporting folks and you have a super rich, winding story! It back tracks, then forward you go .. and just as you think you have figured out the plot ... here comes another twist you just do not see coming! I HIGHLY recommend this book. It is so worth the price as both books are full complete novels in there own right. You will not be able to put them down till the very end! This author has a rich writing style that will not disappoint but will entertain till the very end!

    I grabbed this two-book deal as a freebie. I didn't even really read what I was "buying"- just saw that it was free. When I decided to break open one of the many freebies on my Kindle, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I'd actually already read book one. So I immediately skipped to book two and started reading. I might have been better off reading book one again to remember everything that had happened. But I wasn't that smart. Took me a few chapters to remember some of what happened previously, or rather I might not have remembered everything but I still enjoyed book two.I wouldn't recommend reading book two without having read the first. There is a lot that I think you learn in book one about the world. I don't think you'd enjoy the second as much without having that necessary background.I'd actually give only 3 1/2 stars. If you like a decent urban fantasy and want to try something new, I'd recommend this series. I'm about to check out book three.

    RS Black, Crimson Night, Night Series Book 1I enjoyed this Urban Fantasy novel immensely. You just can’t go wrong with demons, vampires and zombies. I loved the main character, Pandora. She shares her body with the demon Lust so there are some intense, steamy scenes but mostly she fights her darker side when it comes to doing the right thing. There was an amazing support cast, suspense in puzzling out who the dastardly villain was and edge-of-your-seat fight scenes. The writer’s style is what sets his or her writing apart and makes it unique. Word choice, sentence fluency, and the writer’s voice were spot on. I recommend this series to anyone interested in the supernatural. This book was gifted to me via InstaFreebie and I chose to give an honest review.The second installment All Hallows Night will be reviewed shortly

    This book had to grow on me, but boy did it suck me in the more I read. For me, the main character was hard to resonate with. She wasn't good, but she also wasn't delectably evil either. She didn't seem to have any redeemable qualities. Then towards the end of book one we're exposed to a deeper side of her and that's when things really changed for me (and when the action really kicks up). As the story unfurls and gets more complex, you get deeper exposure to the characters. How the story grows and blossoms over the two books is what really got me enthralled. A dark, Gothic novel with passion.

    These two books are amazing - great buy. The characters are interesting and captivating. The world is dark but blended in beautifully. The plot, while slightly slow in the beginning, is engaging and curious. I love how you have the seven sins in a demon and I love the interaction that you get with it. I have always loved dark books with excellent suspense and action with a kickass female lead and this book(s) delivers that in spades. It's rare that I re-read books so soon after finishing them, but this is one series that I just cannot get enough of.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this author as I had not come across her books before and I could not put it down. The characters intrigued me and I had read about Nephilim before but not when they had the 7 deadly sins attached and Lust was one hell of a sin to bear. There were lots of twists and I liked the main character Pandora as she was such a strong character yet she was different because she was trying to hold on to her humanity. Definitely a must read and I would recommend to anyone who enjoys kick ass heroines.

    Awesome!!!!I wasn't sure what to think of this book, looking at the reviews. But I decided to try it and all I can say is amazing. I loved the action and suspense throughout the whole book. I also loved the fact that I got the first two books in the series for free. I will definitely being buying the next two! I loved the use of the different creatures and how the author changes your mind on how these creatures work. She made different that what you see in all the movies. That was awesome for me! This book probably is not for everyone, but it's worth a read!

    Pandora has always been different. Working for the carnival, she was able to fit in. Everyone there had a demon side to them. Pandora happens to have lust as her demon. But when the Order learn she is the key to the end of the world, they will do whatever they can to destroy her. They sent her to Hell, they sent zombies to destroy her, and to end it all, she has been kidnapped. The Death Priest who should have destroyed her and the carnival, has become her true mate. Will she find a way back to him?

    Pleasantly surprisedI really enjoyed these two books. So far the storyline has kept me very interested and I haven't been able to put my kindle down. I really like the main character Pandora and all of the minor characters. I did notice a few editing errors with punctuation and word use, especially in the second book, but it wasn't enough to pull from the story. So far I would recommend this series. I look forward to the next book.

    The first 2 books of the Night Series drew me in, got me hooked, and kept me turning pages. Pandora is a strong, capable, and engaging main character. Watching her as she grows, faces her own issues and takes on things beyond herself... Dark but searching for the light, the story is a fresh take on a darker theme. I really enjoyed them both!

    WonderfulI loved these books. I couldn't (really) put them down. I very rarely give five stars to cliff hangers because, well, they are cliff hangers and I hate them. But, these books are well worth ten stars but, unfortunately they won't let me give them. Read the books. Trust me, you won't put them down either.

  • Summer Peterson

    OkaySo I got about 72% of the way though before I just didn't care to keep reading. I just can't get into Pandora's character. Giving it 2 stars cause I finished book 1 but didn't finish book 2

    I'll admit, it took almost 3 months to read this book but I think it had nothing to do with the book itself and everything to do with me (I've been in a reading slump). I'm so glad I finished it, though. Can't wait to read the next one!
