Amazon Reader Review

The mythos of a vampire is a common one, but the uniqueness in Nightlord is an engaging change.

Amazon Reader Review

Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Great suspense and action with wonderful world building.


Amazon Reader Review

NIGHTLORD: SUNSET is like a modern, adult Narnia but instead of British siblings we get an American half vampire with a penchant for wizardry, a sarcastic dragon sword and a golem stallion as a main character.

Goodreads Reviewer

Whited has written an epic adventure that is well thought-out and captivating. The story was a perfect blend of fantasy and reality that made it feel authentic and true; it was thought-provoking, funny, with a good balance of action and self-reflection.

Sunset brought a hangover, a beautiful woman, and the thirst for… blood?

Eric didn’t ask to be a vampire.
In fact, he didn’t even believe in them. Then he meets a beautiful woman, wakes up with a hangover, and bites his tongue with his own fangs.

Which pretty much settles the question.

Now he’s trying to hold down his day job while learning the rules of the Undead — the most important being that bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts are a real bitch.

Upside; Eric has the beautiful Sasha to teach him the ropes, including the magic he’ll need to survive.
Downside; it turns out being a vampire is the least of his problems.

When Sasha is killed, Eric is thrust into an alternate world in his quest to avenge her death. There he becomes a Nightlord, fights a dragon with the help of his magical steed, Bronze, and upchucks a sword named Firebrand.

But things get really interesting when Eric finally finds Tobias, head of the Church of Light. Soon Eric finds himself at the center of an epic battle at the literal edge of the world in a fight to keep a terrible darkness at bay.

“When you fall off the Edge of the World into hordes of demonic ‘Things from the Outer Darkness,’ you really start to wonder about your life choices.”
–Eric, part-time undead, expectant father, and short-term astronaut.

Garon Whited was born in Wichita, Kansas in 1969 or 1970; the original birth certificate is suspiciously unavailable and other records do not agree. After following his parents around the South for several years, he finally caught up to them and settled somewhere in Texarkana.

Garon attended Texarkana College, the University of Fayetteville, and Texas A&M. While he was in college, he studied physics, math, robotics, religion, philosophy, psychology, and of course, girls.  Sadly, his grades were excellent in all but one of those categories..  He is presently single.

When he’s not “vomiting words onto the page and then going back to clean it up”, Garon is a fan of Dungeons & Dragons and has been playing since he started 5th grade, with a box of paper booklets. He’s also a fan of running games when he has the time. Garon loves to read, usually science fiction and fantasy. His favorite authors include Robert Heinlein, Roger Zelazny, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Steven Brust, Spider Robinson, David Drake and E.E. “Doc” Smith. Garon has a particularly soft spot for Tolkien; his first copy of “The Lord of the Rings” fell apart because he was too young to take proper care of it —  he read it to death.

Garon Whited has written novels and various short stories and shows no signs of stopping. Having fought zombie dolphins, quasi-corporeal spirits, and brain-sucking mole rats, he is uniquely qualified to write fantastic fiction. His first book, “Nightlord: Sunset,” features a human physics teacher who is turned into a vampire against his will and proceeds to go on fantastical adventures.
