Overview

From the raging fires, five men emerge with extraordinary new powers. They are humankind's last hope . . . but they cannot survive this dark, ravaged world alone . . .

Quentin Fielding had everything. Money. Power. Women. But now that civilization is all but annihilated, Quent wants only one thing: revenge. Harnessing a strange new "gift," he embarks on a deadly mission to find the man responsible for the chaos and destruction, the man he should have killed years ago: his father. Only one thing stands in his way—a mysterious, arrow-wielding beauty . . .

Zoë Kapoor is on her own quest for vengeance, searching for the monstrous fiends who murdered her family. Soon she and Quent join together, journeying through the ruins of the world they once knew as a desperate desire builds between them. Drawing closer to an enemy they never imagined, Zoë and Quent must abandon all fear, abandon all regret, abandon the night . . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Embrace the Night Eternal, the world as we know it has been destroyed by malicious human intent—continents have been rearranged, Las Vegas (Envy) is now on the ocean, immortal Strangers have taken control, zombies and others walk the night, and people try to survive as best as they can. But five men from the past have miraculously survived and emerged with enhanced paranormal powers 50 years later into a postapocalyptic world they could never have imagined. Continuing "The Envy Chronicles" series begun with Beyond the Night (January), this installment takes former hit-man Simon Japp and cult escapee Sage Corrigan, both of whom would like to forget their pasts, on a harrowing journey for the truth (in this case Remington Truth) that leads them back to the community where Sage grew up—with dangerously arousing results.

    Very Original Series

    I was a little hesitant to try this series, but I am very glad I did. It is very interesting! I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a good book. Would definitely start with the first book in the series.

    They just keep getting better!

    My Review:
    How can these books continue to get better and better when they started out phenomenally?!?! Quentin was an original part of the group that had been hiking in Sonoma when the apocalypse happened. He was a billionaire playboy trying to escape the shadow of his father's overwhelming dominance. The book starts when Quent was 17 being beaten by his father with a riding crop. At that time, he had the means to kill him, but chose not to, not knowing that his father would be instrumental in the destruction of the world 13 years later. Now it's been 50+ years and Quent's entire goal is to make his father (who is an Elite/Immortal/Stranger) pay for his crimes. That is his only goal. Having grown up as a billionaire playboy, he feels that he has nothing else to offer this new society...no money, no influence, no skills. He feels completely and utterly useless in this new society.

    His one and only bit of happiness is Zoe. Zoe & Quent have been scorching the pages since book one, but that is all they have...a booty call, which is slowly killing Quent. He wants so much more.
    Elliot turned to the door and wrapped his fingers around the knob. "I've known you for ten years- not counting the fifty we were sleeping- and I've not seen you this worked up about a woman. So it's either an ego thing or she's the one."
    Quent gave a sharp, short chuckle. "Kind of a leap, from ego to soulmate, don't you think? Can't it just be that she's awesome in bed?"
    But Elliot was shaking his head. "Nope. I don't think so. Not the way that you're looking."
    He wants more, but is not willing to drop his shields to let Zoe know that he needs more. This is a man that has lived his life hiding behind a fake facade so that no one can damage him and it's so hard for him to drop that.

    Coincidentally, Zoe is very much the same way. She lost her entire family at the age of 15 and has spent all her time since alone and focusing all her energies on revenge for the man responsible for their murders. She honestly doesn't even know how to deal with people anymore and is perfectly happy that way, but Quent has gotten under her skin and she can't stay away.

    This was a gorgeous love story, watching these two learn to trust one another when neither one of them even know how to do that anymore. There are so many barriers between them, but they gradually tear them all down. It makes for such a beautiful book. I loved Quent. I loved Zoe. I think that they are my favorite new couple of this series...just so damn perfect together. LOVE THEM!

    super post-apocalyptic romantic futuristic tale

    Quent Fielding ran away from home in 1997 when she was eighteen years old to escape his abusive martinet father. That occurred thirteen years before he and four other men were trapped in a Sedona, New Mexico cave in some form of a sleep state. Now over fifty years later, they awaken like van Winkle to a world gone mad (see Embrace the Night Eternal and Beyond the Night). He and his cohorts manage to make it to Envy, a bit of purebred human society in what was once known as Las Vegas. Recent information shakes Quent to his DNA core; his father is still alive as one of the architects of the change that destroyed the world. He is determined to track down his father and kill him.

    One of the Envy warriors, loner Zoe Kapoor the archer obsesses over killing Raul Marck, who murdered her family. Her attraction to Quent is unacceptable in her mind as her feelings intrude on her quest. Quent shares her desire, but believes his need for her makes him stronger. They agree to team up in order to kill their respective tormentors or die together trying.

    The latest Envy post-apocalyptic romantic futuristic tale focuses on two people with family issues. Quent makes Oedipus look like he had no complex while Zoe's thirst for vengeance rivals that of her beloved. Readers will appreciate this dark futuristic world, as we become aware of how foreboding 2050 has become with each entry. Aptly titled as the night is deadly, readers will relish this strong entry and look forward to the saga of the two remaining Awakening Heroes.
