Jonah Cummings gives an exhilarating performance of Thom Brannan’s apocalyptic novel Lords of Night. His dulcet voice serves as a counterpoint to the death and destruction that pervades the story. The Ancient Enemy has enacted a reign of terror. Humanity is hiding in sewers and subways, trying to ward off the undead and their masters, the Locust People. A young man named Jack resides underground in New York, and discovers he has psychic powers that increase by the day. He joins a group of ex-Special Forces operatives on a mission to obtain an artifact that can banish the Ancient Enemy and restore order.

The Ancient Enemy has risen from the depths of time and turned the world into a darkened and desolate place. The last outposts of humanity are hidden in the sewers and subways, guarding against patrolling hordes of walking dead and their overseers, the sadistic and inhuman Locust People.
Struggling to survive in the New York underground is a young man named Jack. But Jack has an edge: a growing psychic power he uses to fight The Enemy's lieutenants. With the world at stake, Jack and a team of ex-Special Forces operatives set off on a quest to find an artifact from the dawn of time that will put an end to the Ancient Enemy's reign and restore the world. But what will Jack have to become to defeat the evil older than mankind?

Enjoyable. Memorable. Ready for the Sequel!

Would you listen to Lords of Night again? Why?

The characters are distinctive, constantly giving each other a hard time, and realistically portrayed. The Ranger is intriguing. He catches flack for being loony (he actually wears a mask and thinks the military hospital's mental ward was a hoot), but in the end, no one doubts his skill.

What did you like best about this story?

Brannan is unpredictable. I thought I was getting a typical zombie apocalypse story, but there are so many surprising and creative aspects to this novel I was blown away.

Have you listened to any of Jonah Cummings’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first listen to Jonah Cummings. I thought he did a fine job. All the characters are uniquely voiced.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end choked me up, especially the part about the chain of glow sticks.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to book two.

Dull and Boring

Any additional comments?

I was really disappointed with this one. It sounded really interesting but it just didn't cut it for me. The narrator even sounded bored!
