The ancient walls of St. Gregory's the greatest abbey to rise upon the alpine crest joining Italy and France, hold secrets and a darkness that no man or woman should explore. Throughout its great hall and innumerable chambers, corridors, and catacombs lay a great repository of weapons born in all the wars ever fought for, and against God--and one weapon of immeasurable worth.An ancient evil has darkened the abbey halls and turned the once-peaceful monastery into a murderous battleground. The abbey monks and a group of visiting tourists find themselves locked in a hopeless battle with an unstoppable force. Cut off from the outside world by a sinister snowstorm, the abbey's defenders must fight for their survival and for their very souls.But from among the defenders arises an ageless holy warrior who alone wields the skill and power to stem the bloody tide of evil. In the epic battle that will decide the fate of all involved, the warrior must not only struggle against a familiar foe of mythic might but also rediscover the faith and love that have carried him through a thousand battles.

Meet the Author

A veteran novelist, James Byron Huggins' life story reads more like fiction than fact. After working as a newspaper reporter, Huggins left journalism to help persecuted Christians in eastern Europe. From Texas, he worked with the Christian underground in the Iron Curtain, spending his life savings and becoming homeless. Huggins left America to offer assistance to Romanian Christians. He often remained hidden for days at a time in order to survive. After returning home, Huggins again worked as a journalist before becoming a policeman. Huggins then left law enforcement to pursue full-time writing.

    An Immortal Warrior Faces His Darkest Enemy

    "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.

    Huggin's ROCKS!

    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!

    The best gets even better

    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.
