Reviews of NightWhere

NightWhere by John EversonBlue Ink Review featured NightWhere in its article “10 ‘Must Read’ Indie Novels Perfect for Halloween”:  “Originally published in 2012 by Samhain, Everson’s novel—about an adventurous married couple, living in Chicago, that have an “open relationship” and have experimented extensively with bondage and domination/discipline—blew me away. Still to this day, one of the creepiest, most twisted, nightmare-inducing novels that I have ever read. Everson now publishes this through his Dark Arts press, which is good news for all of those readers who have yet to read the novel I called a “dark, decadent, and disturbing masterpiece.”

Scared Stiff Reviews said, “John Everson has definitely written what I already consider to be a true classic in the erotic/horror genre. The author has invited the reader on a journey into the depths of Hell, knowing that once the last page is turned, the reader will never be the same again. This is a journey where the ugliness of humanity is revealed and most won’t like or have the stomach to deal with it”

WTF Are You Reading called NightWhere “a story that could turn me off and turn me on, sometimes at the same time.” and also noted “While the supernatural plays a huge role in NightWhere, making so much desecration and defilement possible night-after-night, it is the human aspects that are often the most chilling.”

Famous Monsters of Filmland reviewer Peter Schwotzer wrote: “I can guarantee once you start NightWhere you will not be able to put it down, it sinks its hooks into you and you just have to turn the next page to see what will happen next.

Hellnotes reviewer Wayne C. Rogers wrote, “Nightwhere by John Everson isn’t for everybody. This book is extremely intense, violent, sexual, and horrifying. In fact, the squeamish are not allowed into the Red Room. This is only for the readers who can handle this particular type of in-your-face terror. Think Hellraiser meets Basic Instinct, and you have some idea about the dark contents of this novel. That being said, I loved Nightwhere.”

Chicks Dig Books wrote: “NightWhere combines reality with supernatural elements and creates a truly scary and unforgettable story… If you’re a horror fan and you can handle more graphic content, definitely read this book. But afterward if you find a red invitation slipped under your door, do yourself a favor and don’t open it!”

The Horror Review said NightWhere “is extremely well written, providing the kind of reading experience you get from Cormac McCarthy The Road or Scott Smith’s The Ruins — relentless in both realism and emotional impact.”

Sizzling Hot Books said “NightWhere will suck you in and probably never let you go.”

Horror Novel Reviews wrote: “Seedy sex clubs, whips, chains, floggers. NightWhere. John Everson’s latest trek into a world of utter blackness proves to be a deeply grim journey that provides a cruel commentary on society, all the while merging a supernatural presence that chills beyond the bone.”

Bloody Disgusting said, “Aggressively violent horror fiction like The Summer I Died ore The Girl Next Door has never really been my bag. But while reading NightWhere I nevertheless felt a strange sort of admiration for Everson. He knows exactly what he’s doing here, knows exactly what buttons he’s pushing. The dialogue is crisp, the plotting is fast-paced––it’s a very confident piece of work, regardless of the subject matter. And is it scary? Yes, at times NightWhere is very scary…because this is a novel that can go anywhere. And it does.”

B&N Reads’ article “Gifts for People Who Loved Fifty Shades of Grey” featured Nightwhere noting: “Yes, this is a horror novel, but it’s also insanely erotic, centering on a young married couple that gains entrance into an ultra-secret sex club for those into hardcore bondage and domination/discipline. It’s a place where one’s wildest fantasies can come true, but when they decide to experience its darkness, it irrevocably changes their lives forever. Although this novel is undoubtedly one of the creepiest and most twisted, nightmare-inducing novels you will ever read, it’s also one of the most erotic—it makes the Fifty Shades books look vanilla.”
