Publisher's Summary

A dishonored swordsman running from his past.
A city shrouded in dark magic.
An antihero born.
Daniel Harper was champion, until a single mistake destroyed his fencing career forever. With nothing left to lose, he flees to Eastern Europe, where he can start over... where he can be someone else.
In the exotic, lantern-lit crevices of a nameless city, Daniel meets two people who open very different kinds of doors than the ones he is searching for: the troubled flower girl Kashka, who holds the key to a nightmarish otherworld; and the enigmatic street magician and self-professed love tourist Ink, who has the power to bend others to his will.
As Daniel plummets into a downward spiral of hedonism and dereliction, he is tormented by macabre visions of a frozen world in endless darkness where an evil tyrant has stolen the sun, where humanity's remnants fight to scrape out a cruel existence underground, and wandering spirits inhabit the bodies of the recently deceased. Daniel is doomed to return to this Night Country every time he falls into a deep sleep. But the longer he spends there, the more Daniel realizes his curse is anything but an accident....

Wow!

A perfect meld of sci-fi and fantasy, for what is highly advanced technology but magic in the eyes of those who do not understand it for what it is?
This is the first in its series but the second book of Adam Vine brought to life by Kevin Meyer. Perhaps you have yet to listen to Lurk and stumbled upon this by accident. I highly suggest you listen to that book as well if you loved this book as much as I did.
When listening to this book, it's best to dive in only reading the summary. Take little to nothing with you when beginning this. I promise, by the end of this book (as all of Adam Vine's work is apt to do) you will find yourself leaving with much.

Take me to the Night Country

This book has quite an interesting premise and it does not disappoint. Love the world building, the specific/unique names used for places and characters/species. The first half of the book is preparing us for Dan's travel to the Night World and it might seem slow at first, however it is pretty crucial to the story, so bear with it and keep an eye out for details. My only complaint is that this is a duology, so we have to wait for the next book to see what happens!!!!!! This first book is a very good buildup and by the end it had me asking dozens of questions whilst answering the questions I already had.
SPOILER CONTAINING MY FAVORITE PART ABOUT THE BOOK: I seriously loved the blob! I loved how this ability to travel between Night and Regular Country is a disease and his time is limited, it certainly is unique.
