Series: Night Series, #2
Publication Date: March 8, 2014
Genre: Urban Fantasy


Secrets and truths, lies and red herrings… which is which? That’s what Pandora’s trying to figure out. Ever since the death of her best, and probably only friend by her own hands, she’s not sure who to trust anymore. The Priest is dead. The Gray Man is… she’s not even sure what. Luc, well, Luc is Luc.
The Order has sent her deep into the heart of Mexico to investigate a potential zombie uprising. She arrives at the start of the Dia de los Muertos festival—a celebration for the dead and immediately things don’t feel right to her. For one, bodies (the living kind) keep disappearing. They’re not being kidnapped, no, if only things were that simple. Literally there one second, gone the next, she’s not sure what to make of it. On top of that mum’s are floating all over the place. Is that merely symbolism associated with the festival, or is it a clue of something far more sinister?
In this explosive sequel to the USA Today Bestselling, Crimson Night, an old ally returns and a shocking truth is revealed. One that will turn her investigation into The Order’s duplicity on its head and make Pandora question everything she ever thought she knew…

I’d meant to ask around town, see if any of the locals knew of or had heard about any recent or strange deaths, but I was a stranger to them. A gringa (white face), they wouldn’t trust me enough to answer me.

Part of Lust’s glamour was that I could turn myself into the walking embodiment of anybody’s deepest desire, but doing so also required that I had sex recently. A sort of tit for tat kind of arrangement.

But since that night and the possession of my third soul, Lust wasn’t working so well for me anymore. My desire for sex was practically nil. Luc was the first person I’d slept with since waking from my semi-coma, and even that had left me empty and cold.

I knew I should be a lot more worried than I actually was—I dunno, maybe Lust was still in shock after our stint in Hell. Meeting Wrath had done things to Lust, screwed with her head. She was like a whimpering, terrified dog tucking tail and hiding in a corner, and there wasn’t much I could do to bring her out.

So I had to do this sleuthing thing the good old-fashioned way. Being as old as I am, you get a feeling for people. The outer shell might be different, but the inside was always the same. If I wanted to find what I was looking for, I had to go someplace designed to loosen tongues and get men talking. Get a man drunk enough and he’ll tell you anything you want to know.Opening the door to the first dive I found in town, I entered and stood just inside as my eyes slowly adjusted to the dim lighting.

My Thoughts


As usual, since the series isn’t finish yet, I’m reserving some of my judgement until I read the end. As far as All Hallows Night is concerned though, I cannot wait to dig deep into the book right after I finished readng Crimson Nights. Marie Hall has made me look at the seven deadly sins after reading books one and two of the nights series.


I am torn as to what to feel about Luc. I am dying to know of what really happened between him and Pandora. I feel sorry for him when the priest – Asher/Billy came into the picture. He mayact like a big ***hole sometimes but I felt that he genuinely care for Pandora. And as early as now, I felt sad for him for I can clearly see how bad this story will turn out for him.


Asher/Billy on the other hand, do know how to make a woman feel special. Granted that Pandora was not your normal kind of woman being a nephilim and all I can help feeling all romantic with the things he was ready to do for Pandora. Although I must admit, I was bit weary of trusting him during the beginning too. But I guess he has proven his worth as he literally went to hell and back for Pandora’s sake.


There’s a lot of question and anticipations for the next book that I know waiting for it to come out will not be easy. But as I have enjoyed the journey with Pandora as well as the other Neph and Asher, I would be glad to look forward to it. There are still lots of characters and persona that needs to be unveiled and get to know. And because I am yet read any fantasy  and gothic book that is flawless, I admire the author’s effort for the research she must have went through to make this series as good as it is and as believable as her world of nephilims and other goths came to be.

about author

Marie Hall is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author who loves books that make you think, or feel something. Preferably both. And while she’s a total girly girl and loves glitter and rainbows, she’s just as happy when she’s writing about the dark underbelly of society. Well, if things like zombies, and vampires, and werewolves, and mermaids existed. (Although she has it on good authority that mermaids do in fact exist, because the internet told her so.)

She’s married to the love of her life, a sexy beast of a caveman who likes to refer to himself as Big Hunk. She has two awesome kids, lives in Hawaii, loves cooking and occasionally has been known to crochet. She also really loves talking about herself in the third person.
