Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Warrior priest Damien Vryce and immortal sorcerer Gerald Tarrant reunite in an uneasy alliance to combat an evil that threatens the delicate stability of life on Erna. There the mysterious force known as the ``fae'' conjures monsters from the stuff of dreams. This sequel to Black Sun Rising ( LJ 11/15/91) secures Friedman's reputation both as a gifted storyteller and an innovative creator. A good choice for most libraries.
Roland Green
On the planet Erma, humans have survived for 12 centuries in uneasy coexistence with the fae, a natural force with paranormal powers. Now those powers and the hostility of the fae are increasing, human survival on Erma is threatened, and a human priest-warrior and a native Erman female must go on a quest in search of a solution to the burgeoning conflict. This tale definitely straddles the border between fantasy and sf, appealing to readers of both in the manner of Bradley's chronicles of Darkover or McCaffrey's of Pern. Friedman is not yet quite as accomplished a storyteller as Bradley or McCaffrey, but she has exhibited steady growth over the years and her piling on of lots of well-chosen detail continues to bring her worlds and characters to life quite well. So her latest is for anyone who cares for its kind of quest-romance.

    Breath of fresh air in Sci-Fi/Fantasy!

    I'm an avid reader of Sci-Fi & Fantasy and was running out of reading material that didn't involve teen vampires, and stumbled upon this trilogy recommendation on more than one of the "Best Sci-Fi & Fantasy Books" websites, so I thought I would give it a shot, and was pleasantly surprised! C. S. Friedman writes beautifully. I liked that the content is more for adult reading. And the concepts, plots, and characters are new, refreshing, and very well depicted!

    Heaven and Hell battle for mankind..

    C.S. Friedman does it once again in When True Night Falls. Damien and co. enter a world beyond the impassible ocean, and discover that nothing is what it seems to be. Gerald Tarrant is the ultimate evil, and is the best character i've ever read.

    The Best Book I Have Ever Read

    This has to be the best book that I have ever read. I am only 16, but I read whenever I have a spare moment. This book is full of action, good characters, and vivid pictures. I liked 'When True Night Falls' so much that I am now reading 'Crown Of Shadows' the last book in the Coldfire Series and will write a review for that when I am done. There is a reason that everyone has given this book 5 stars, and it is because it is a really good book. If you like action, plot twists, and in depth characters then read this book.

    C.S. Friedman Captivates with Engrossing Continuation

    It's been well over a year since I read this book and still I remember it. Friedman's characters become your friends and enemies as you're wrapped up in the continuing saga of a world going wild with magic and mystery.
