Overview

Keleios was a child when her mother, Elwine the Gentle, was slain by the malevolent witch Harque. Now Keleios's prayers of avenging her death have finally been answered: she has been granted powers beyond anything she has ever known. But she has also acquired something else--the demonmark. As magical as it is terrifying, the demonmark can open the door to undreamed possibilities. It can also expose her soul to the darkest and most forbidden forces of sorcery.

In an epic battle of good versus evil, the enchanted swords and shapeshifting dragons, of unquenchable hatred and unlikely love, Keleios must battle her own demons before she can earn the most important power of all--the power to forgive.

I was captivated by the plot and enthralled by the characters. This book kept my attention through two screaming children and a video game-playing boyfriend! I even laughed out loud at a few comical parts! This is a page-turner that I have kept dusted off on my bookshelf. Surprisingly for Laurell K. Hamilton this book ends in a touchingly sweet way! Not that Laurell can't write sweet and endearing endings, but in this book the end is laughter and not an orgy! :) I also have to admit to having all of the Anita Blake series (soon to be 17 books) and the Merry Gentry series!

Absolutely my fave! I bought it when it first came out so long ago. I still pick it up and re-read it every couple of years. I wish she would do a sequel. It would be lovely to have this in electronic format too. :D

I love Laurell K. Hamilton's other series and thought I would read this one, however I hated it. This was very confusing and there was not really much of a plot. Lots of action but no real depth. I would definitely recommend her other series, but not this one.

I am an avid reader of Laurel K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter" series, so when I was browsing the shelves and came upon "NIGHTSEER" I had a strong feeling it would be a fun read. My assumption was correct! Hamilton's discovery of new and imaginative ways to write an action fantasy novel is exciting and enthralling. Keleios is a strong heroine, Hamilton's forte! Her "love interest", Lothor, provides that wonderful mixture of dark, dangerous, sexy and forbidden, that has a great appeal for many. Hamilton introduces new ways of intertwining good, evil and magic that keep the reader interested and guessing what is coming next. I was truly amazed to discover this was her first novel. The only disappointment I have is in the knowledge there is no sequel!! Hopefully Ms. Hamilton will have the time and desire to give us another taste of Kellies and her world!
