Publisher's Summary

When three strangers, Henry, Susan, and Gil, discover a corpse partially consumed by deadly eels, they have no way of knowing that it will lead to a confrontation with the devil.
The Night Warriors are a group of ordinary people who face extraordinary challenges. By entering people's dreams they confront evil head-on - which, in this case, presents itself in the form of legendary devil, Yaomauitl whom they must defeat to save the waking world from wide-scale catastrophe.
Often compared to its cinematic equivalent, the Nightmare On Elm Street series, this was the first novel to include fantasy alongside the horror - a resoundingly successful move, succeeding at virtually every level. Exciting and imaginative - and, at times, extremely gruesome. After 35 years in which he established himself as one of the world’s bestselling horror authors, Graham Masterton has turned his hand to crime. Drawing on the five years in which he and his late wife Wiescka lived in Cork, in southern Ireland, he has created a series of novels featuring Katie Maguire, the first woman detective superintendent in An Garda Siochána, the Irish police force.
Graham was born in Edinburgh in 1946, the grandson of John Masterton, the chief inspector mines for Scotland, and Thomas Thorne Baker, a scientist who was the first man to send news pictures by radio. After joining his local newspaper at the age of 17 as a junior reporter, he was appointed deputy editor of Mayfair the men’s magazine at the age of 21. At 24 he became executive editor of Penthouse.

The horror is in the writing.

Would you try another book written by Graham Masterton or narrated by Jeff Harding?

Jeff Harding is a good narrator. I've listened to some of his other work and the sample of this book seemed like a winner. It's the writing though. It's just so bad, And the lack of plot. Or any characterisation. And the casual sexism and racism. There is also a lot of name dropping product placement throughout that grates after a while. Some books are written at a time when certain social aspects that wouldn't have seemed out of place at the time seem shocking now. This was only written in the 80s though. I'm guessing by a 12 year old because the writing is really that bad. Characters contradict themselves in the same paragraph. The only consistency is the consistently bad writing. Really disappointed as this writer often gets reasonable reviews. I have no idea why. Certainly not for this book.


Would you ever listen to anything by Graham Masterton again?

Hell no.


Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. Nothing wrong with this performance.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Night Warriors?

The sexism and the racism. And the poor plot. Then again...that would leave you with just a pamphlet.

Fantastic Masterton novel

I've read the book and now listened to it on Audible. It really is a fantastic story that is enhanced by great narration. I really do hope that Audible will release the entire Graham Masterton horror library.
