Into The Night


Loved it! 😍

Vampires....that is all it took to before I was sold. I am here for the century drama.

“If you enter that alley young man, you will not leave it alive.”


Jack Martin, on a night that was supposed to be spent with friends, is mistakenly introduced into a world no one would believe existed. Jack was chosen as prey by a creature that to the naked eye was just another middle-aged woman. But this woman, Gabriele, turns out to be a vampire who is being hunted by The Group. When Gabriele has a change of plans and sets her eyes on Jack’s brother Edward, Jack must join forces with unlikely allies.


Stephen Larkin did a wonderful job creating a world where vampires exist among the mortal and adding a layer of additional conflict by the vampires being hunted by The Group. The Group’s existence is probably one of my favorite elements of this story. The Group stems from a vampire called Antonio who was created by Gabriele, and I especially found it intriguing how Antonio has given his followers the abilities of vampires without making them blood thirsty. I do wish I had more of a back story of Gabriele and the rest of The Clan. One thing I wondered throughout reading the book was: were The Clan offered a spot within The Group or did they refuse the way of the church and that is why The Group began hunting The Clan?

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience reading Into The Night. It kept me fully engaged and it was a page turner. There were moments when I could not put the book down because I needed to know what was going to happen next. Knowing that this is a trilogy I now need to know how this story meets its end. So Stephen Larkin, if you read this, I would love to read the next installments in this series.
