Written by Jade KerrionGenre: Fantasy, Paranormal
In 'Eternal Night', readers are taken into the future, to the city of the Eternal Night, where humans live, plagued by the Night Terrors (vampires and Icrathari). Every full moon night, vampires come to the human village for the cull. They take five-year-old children to the Malum Turris, their stronghold that dominates land and life. The four Icrathari are the ones in control. Unlike the vampires, they have wings to fly with, and have existed for millennia.
One 27-year-old human, named Jaden Hunter, kills two vampires one night of full moon and is taken to the evil tower. He is the reincarnation of Rohkeus, an Icrathari assassinated a thousand years ago, the lost love of the Icrathari queen Ashra. But Jaden has sworn to protect his half sister, five-year-old Khiarra, the child prophesised to stop the Night Terrors.
The story is written from two points of view: Jaden's and Ashra's. Each is a side of the coin known as Aeternae Noctis, the humans and the Night Terrors. Their views on the situation are obviously opposite, even if there is more to it than the humans know. Each step the human and the Icrathari take towards each other develops the characters and the plot in a vivid fashion, ensnaring the readers more tightly in this desolated world in the future.
With 'Eternal Night' Jade Kerrion wrote an enthralling novel and created a world full of possibilities, despite –or because of– the dystopian background, if characters and readers choose to believe. Five stars, because I was fascinated by the Icrathari's wings. Demons or angels?
