Eternal Night

Aeternae Noctis

Written by Jade Kerrion

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal

Alone for a millennium, since a human murdered her beloved consort, Ashra, the immortal icrathari queen, rules over Aeternae Noctis, the domed city of eternal night. Her loneliness appears to be at an end when her consort's soul is reborn in a human, Jaden Hunter, but their reunion will not be easy. 

Icrathari are born, not made. If Ashra infuses Jaden with her immortal blood, he will be a vampire, a lesser creature of the night, a blood-drinker rather than a soul-drinker. 

Furthermore, Jaden is sworn to protect his half-sister, five-year-old Khiarra. She is the child of prophecy, destined to end the eternal night and the dominion of the Night Terrors—the icrathari and the vampires. 

As Ashra struggles to sustain her crumbling kingdom in the face of enemies without and treachery within, Jaden fights to defend his sister and unravel a greater mystery: what is the city of eternal night, and how did it come to be?

Walki's Review

In 'Eternal Night', readers are taken into the future, to the city of the Eternal Night, where humans live, plagued by the Night Terrors (vampires and Icrathari). Every full moon night, vampires come to the human village for the cull. They take five-year-old children to the Malum Turris, their stronghold that dominates land and life. The four Icrathari are the ones in control. Unlike the vampires, they have wings to fly with, and have existed for millennia.

One 27-year-old human, named Jaden Hunter, kills two vampires one night of full moon and is taken to the evil tower. He is the reincarnation of Rohkeus, an Icrathari assassinated a thousand years ago, the lost love of the Icrathari queen Ashra. But Jaden has sworn to protect his half sister, five-year-old Khiarra, the child prophesised to stop the Night Terrors.

The story is written from two points of view: Jaden's and Ashra's. Each is a side of the coin known as Aeternae Noctis, the humans and the Night Terrors. Their views on the situation are obviously opposite, even if there is more to it than the humans know. Each step the human and the Icrathari take towards each other develops the characters and the plot in a vivid fashion, ensnaring the readers more tightly in this desolated world in the future.

With 'Eternal Night' Jade Kerrion wrote an enthralling novel and created a world full of possibilities, despite –or because of– the dystopian background, if characters and readers choose to believe. Five stars, because I was fascinated by the Icrathari's wings. Demons or angels?
