"Nightbringer" is a story you CANNOT miss. J. B. Huggins does it again, brining us a tale that is so full of dark twists, turns and shocking secrets, you will NOT be able to put this book down.
"Nightbringer" takes place at the ancient abbey of St. Gregory's. But before you think this is a stale tale of guys in robes chanting for 200+ pages, think again. Yeah, these monks pray and chant, but they also swordfight demonic creatures, and guard treasures so old and amazing it will blow your mind!
"Nightbringer" starts out with a tour group arriving at the abbey with a fierce and unnatural blizzard hard on their heals. What is meant to be a few nights stay becomes an indefinite one. But, that's OK with vacationing FBI agent Gina and her entourage. They spend a couple exciting days touring this fantastic abbey filled with weapons, chariots, armor and etc. from ages long past (and it's great how you feel like part of the tour group yourself-these parts are NOT boring). And you meet all the interesting inhabitants of St. Gregory's: the patient and cordial Father; the wise and intense Melchanthon, and the loyal and brave Barnabas, etc. And these guys are really great characters, far from the cliches that bring down so many books.
"Nightbringer" is fast paced though; it's not long before you meet the deadly immortal warriors who have returned to they abbey seeking the powerful and formidable treasures hidden down below in the abbey's secret catcombes, and also the immortal warrior guarding them. Cassius, the centurion who crucified Christ, has been granted immortality by the Savior Himself so that he may wander the world battling the demonic spawn from ancient times: the Nephilim themselves. But, the war that has spanned ages has culminated at last to this dark and perilous moment. Long has it been prophecied that Cassius and the most old and evil of the Nephilim would face each other at this all important abbey.
You don't get anymore details here. You must read this chilling and adreniline pumping book for yourself. Please don't deprive yourself! Join Gina, Cassius and these sword swinging monks (contemporaries of the Templar knights) as they face the Nephilim of old and stand against an onlsaught of consuming darkness.

I loved Nightbringer. Huggin's is an incredible writer and story teller. I recommend his books to people who love a great fiction tale that they cannot put down. Bravo, Huugins!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

For some reason, James Byron Huggins has flown under the radar in regard to being one of the best writers on the market today. Maybe it has something to do with a lack of publicity for his previous books. I don't know. What I do know is that 'Nightbringer' is his best book. Period. Considering I've read Huggins' 'The Reckoning' and 'Leviathan' about ten times each, that is saying a lot about 'Nightbringer,' which I've already read three times. Huggins is a master mythic storyteller who takes his craft up yet another notch with his latest offering. Heroism, faith, love, mystery, and even an element of horror make 'Nightbringer' a book I highly recommend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
