Publisher's Write-Up

Shrouded in a veil of impenetrable darkness, the world of tomorrow offers Jacob Cain little comfort. One of the last surviving humans, he finds himself pitched in battle with an enemy even darker than the shadows which surround him. An uncountable mass of vampires pushes Man towards extinction. Two armies, both desperate to capture the human refugees, threaten to converge, forming an inescapable net. And trapped in an old military complex, deep underground, hide what remains of the human race.

In a post-apocalyptic world in which the sun has been replaced by darkness, the few survivors have been forced underground to protect themselves from evil predators that roam the surface of the Earth in search of their preferred prey - Man.

Suddenly their fortified world is thrust into even greater danger - an infiltrator is amongst their ranks. And now, no one is safe from the jaws of the undead. Who can be trusted?

As vast armies of vampire soldiers close in and the complete annihilation of the human race looms, it falls upon the shoulders of head tracker, Jacob Cain, to find a solution before it is too late.

Jacob Cain is a man who only knows of a world cloaked in darkness. Ever since the earth was damaged by a huge disastrous event (meteor impact to be exact) everything has been left to slowly die in the dark. Through this gloom lurk blood-thirsty vampires who are led by warriors. The humans live in fear but do sometimes try and fight back against these creatures.

Jacob is determined to hatch a plan to somehow defeat them. There must be a way to end this doom. It takes a while for Jacob’s plan to be put into action but when he meets up with Tate and her companions you find out about their mission properly - which is to obtain the Ray of Hope and use it in the last Great War between the humans and the vampires. Thus in the end we are witness to an apocalyptic and thrilling final battle. Who will win? Will it be the evil vampires or victory for the humans?

Something of the Night is a great, absorbing read with echoes of Stephen King throughout. Should appeal to most horror/vampire fans with its well-written plot and entertaining characters that are easy to relate to. Very creepy!
