Publisher's Summary

Small-time thief and hitman Conor Night thinks having terminal cancer is his worst problem. The illegal treatments keeping him alive are expensive, and the side effects a mixed bag:
Conor can raise the dead.
When a low-end hit points to a high-end job, Conor is suspicious, but it's an opportunity he can't afford to ignore. Armed with a set of soul-sucking ancient dice, a collection of corpses, and the estranged daughter of one of the most powerful wizards on Earth, it will take all of his wit, charm, and magic to navigate the treacherous world of the dominant Houses and either finish the job, or be finished himself.
He's got 99 problems, and dying is only one.

This urban fantasy left me wanting more.

If you could sum up Dead of Night in three words, what would they be?

Necromancers in Future

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked the main character's film noir-esque inner monologue. It set the mood for the whole book.

What does Jeff Hays bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The raspy monotone of the main character took a little bit of getting used to. It would have been easier to follow a voice with more intonation. Still, the voice fit the character, and the voice acting of Jeff Hays was very convincing, with different voices for different characters.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book very much. Great light "reading" with a futuristic setting and a solid magical system. Waiting for the next one...

Dresden meets the Matrix, with Zombies!

What did you love best about Dead of Night?

I liked that the author combined many genres (zombies, necromancers, wizards, mafia-type Families, cancer, werewolves, skin walkers, ... I could go on and on) into a delicious tale of Good Guy Trying to Do The Right Thing! The voice actor combined this with epic skills, so you'd swear that there were several people doing dialogue!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the "newbie" air to the whole thing. You've got this guy, who has the power to raise the dead, and he's got some awesome dice that can kill people. He has no idea what half of his powers are, since Necromancy is such a taboo subject. I love the fact that he has to figure it out as he goes along!

What does Jeff Hays bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He does a great job with this title. Between the creepy echo effects of the mask, and the MANY voices that he can put down at the drop of a hat, this voice actor has totally nailed the needs of this book! Perfect pairing!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A sordid tale of deceit and action! This movie could be the death of you! Or the resurrection...

Any additional comments?

Both the author and the actor did a phenomenal job with this audiobook! I can not wait for the next book! Love!

A superb urban fantasy

Would you consider the audio edition of Dead of Night to be better than the print version?

I've only listened to the audible version, but the narration is brilliant and immersed me into the story-line completely. So I'd say yes, at least for me as a listener.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Conor is my favourite character. I'm used to anti-heroes and guys you love to hate but here we have a hero that we feel sorry for. You worry about his declining health and almost don't want to get to the end because you like him and want it to turn out good - but can it? Some cool gifts. I really liked the idea of how his dice work as well as his general magical ability.

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

Yes. Really good narration, always. Really good voices to bring out the different characters and also a good voice for general narration. It's really easy to listen to and enjoy.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Although equally no because I wanted everything to go well for Conor but if he's going to die do I want to see it. Yes I want to see how it turns out as its a great story. So yes, but because I've engaged with this character, no.

I listened to it in two sitting and really enjoyed it.

Something dry but different

Honestly it's not a bad read but the protagonist is a average guy who makes a lot of bad choices don't expect overpowered super hero he constantly escapes death by talking his way out of it or his enemies talking themselves to death it is a story trying to lead him on a major journey of growth but just mostly him on the verge of death escaping by the skin of his teeth For a pity party later
