Lord of Eternal Night: Darkmourn Universe, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Perfect for fans of From Blood and Ash and A Shade of Vampire—but with added spice!
Jak's life has only one meaning: Break the curse or die trying.
Marius's life has no meaning; not since he was cursed into the twisted, bloodthirsty creature of night. For years the witches have waited for their salvation, a way to return the magic that was sacrificed when the curse was first cast. Jak, a boy born with power that the witches have not seen in a century, is their prophesied savior. The one who is to kill the creature, break the curse and restore magic to his coven.
Sent to the creature's castle as the final Claim, Jak must get close enough to land the final blow. It is what he has trained all his life to accomplish. Not all is as it seems when Jak uncovers secrets and half-truths. The creature is not the haunting beast he had been brought up to hate. Emotions war as new feelings are uncovered. For what is more dangerous than hate? Lust.

I loved the cover art, the concept, the world, and the themes were beautiful and my exact aesthetic. I loved the characters, and the romance was so sweet! With retellings it is hard to create a unique story with surprises and twists, but this was unlike anything else! I am, however, sorry to review; it just felt lacking. Like I finished the book and was left with more questions than when I started.
MAY HINT AT SPOILERS
Please know I am not trying to stab, but these were boggling my mind while reading!
Why did the curse let Jak have powers? I needed so much more info on the curse, the covern and Marius’s abilities and limitations, the shadow hounds? Why does Katherine visit? Her mother before her? It just says it's done. Is she rolling massive barrels of wine to the castle? Why does Marius push Jak at the angry, armed covern who hate him then be surprised with what happens next? Why did Jaks mother just tap Marius on the shoulder without any protection? Did she not say throughout the book how dangerous and deadly he is? Did they think they would win with ordinary weapons when their own, who has fantastic abilities, couldn't even do it?
The writing was beautiful but could have been done with one last check. This author has talent and beautifully creative skills in creating unique stories. Who knows, maybe I was just not in the right frame of mind while reading this? It just took me so long to finish cause I kept getting pulled out with questions and confusing descriptions that contradicted each other. I hope to see more of this writer, there is only room for improvement, and the passion is evident in his writing.
I loved this take on beauty and the beast.
The two main characters were well developed. The story flows effortlessly. Can not wait to read more tales within the universe.

I absolutly adore this book. The characters are refreshingly real, one of the best supernatural race origin stories I've read in a while. Dark and decadent.
The dynamic of magic exacting a price similar to the effect it caused is so intriguing. A small part but one of the worldbuilding joys I enjoy.
And the chemistry.... 🥵😍😍 my god. Marius and Jak are my new faves no question. The backstories and consequential character decisions, flaws, motivations are delicious. I can't wait to see them in another story exploring and finding their places.
Looking forward to catching more of his work.
