Reviews of The Night Mother

The Night Mother by John Everson

“The perfect storm of supernatural mayhem, celestial sex, and gore galore! Here you’ll find a new meaning for the word “clubbing” once you step into NightWhere, an abominable sex club for angels and devils and where S&M knows no bounds. This is hardcore stuff, folks, and don’t be surprised if you have a few whip-lashes when you’re done. Everson’s story bulldozes the reader through macabre edge-of-your-seat terror, diabolical chases, and occult designs, and in vivid scalpel-sharp prose he delivers the most exciting and original novel I’ve read so far this year.”
– Edward Lee, author of The Television and City Infernal

“A novel of forbidden pleasures and violent depravity, where the line between pleasure and pain is razor thin. Enter a secret club where members indulge their darkest desires, and the demons lurking in the shadows are all too real. Another wickedly entertaining novel from a master of erotic horror!”
– Tim Waggoner, author of A Hunter Called Night

“In John Everson’s NightWhere universe, angels (even the fallen) are gods who play with humans’ souls and bodies like toys to be coveted—and broken—at will. With The Night Mother, Everson expands the mythology of his mysteriously elusive NightWhere sex-and-bondage club, inside which the level of pain and pleasure you seek is up to you—until it isn’t. This is Edward Lee territory, filled with vivid characters and enough gore to satisfy most extreme horror fans, delivered by Everson with raw, poetic panache. As razor-sharp a slice of supernatural BDSM-noir as you’re likely to find anywhere, and one not at all likely to leave your nightmares anytime soon. Ten lashes out of ten!”
–W.D. Gagliani, author of the Nick Lupo Series and The Judas Hit

Horror Bookworm Reviews wrote “John Everson returns with his sequel to NightWhere [and] brings back the blood and lust that made the first installment an “extreme” success… With pain comes pleasure but human flesh can only stretch so far…If there is one extreme reading experience that I strongly recommend, this is it my fetish friends. A sadomasochist five-star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating from Horror Bookworm Reviews. The invitation has been offered. Will you accept?”

Betwixt The Sheets said: “Come on in and sin. Yes, please!
The Night Mother, from Bram Stoker Award-Winning Author John Everson, is a welcome trip down the erotic horror genre lane. This standalone follow-up to Everson’s NightWhere, is not for the squeamish….I had a blast reading this book and I applaud Everson for being able to keep up the rather aggressive pacing he set throughout the entire story.”

Bibliophilia Templum said: “The Night Mother by John Everson puts the horror in urban fantasy horror. This story is sexy, violent, gory, and graphic, but the storyline is solid and engrossing, and the writing is fantastic. It’s titillating extreme horror for the truly daring.”

WMP Dark Fiction Magazine wrote: “This is a darkly perverse novel of extremes–extreme love, extreme betrayal, extreme violence… The Night Mother is all about upping the brutality of life and its most difficult to come by desires.”
