    If I was to give this review a title it would be tongue firmly planted in cheek Hellraiser meets 50 Shades and while this is mostly a joke it is also not far from the truth Those unfamiliar with John Everson should pick up his Stoker Award winning Covenant and its seuel Sacrifice which in this reader's opinion is a much better place to start since Everson's body of work at least that I've read is not uite sogruesome and explicitly graphic which is not a bad thing If you're a fan of the works of Edward Lee for example this may not shock you much especially if you've read much of his stuff But in my estimation no one had really delved into the seedy underworld of sex clubs and mixed in with the supernatural in such a way before NightWhere is about a seemingly normal married couple who as we begin the novel enjoy a secret life as purveyors of the swingingbdsm club scene Mark and Rae are uickly popular fixtures in the Chicago sex club scene so for Rae who happens to have an insatiable appetite for sexand pain Mark the loving and supporting husband want to make his wife happyalthough he enjoys the oocasional variety that is offered he is not as much of a fan of this lifestyle as she is Then they get invited to NightWhere a mysterious and ultra exclusive sex club that offers anything to those who are invited There are no limits in NightWhereand for many who continue to be invited no turning back Soon Rae becomes handpicked by the seemingly inhuman Kharon who eventually seduces Rae into taking a deep dark journey into orgasmic pain and bloodletting that threatens to consume her very soul With the help of a beautiful and enigmatic stranger named Selena Mark attempts to find his wife in time before NightWhere takes her into its very heart of darkness

    I'm usually not into erotic type stuff but this is something of another sort entirely Very few books leave me going What in the heck? and sticks with me after I've read it Very few books leave me thinking about them during times I'm not reading them and leave me waiting to be able to read them again This was one of them The last book to do this was Survivor by JF Gonzalez That book like Nightwhere leave me asking myself Could I ever write anything even close to this? Probably not Everson tiptoes the line between the erotic and the horrific in such a way it is almost mesmerizing In one moment you are feeling aroused but at the same time wondering what is wrong with me that this is turning me on? Such a wild mix of feelings and emotionsTo the book itself the characters were great However I found myself wanting to slap Mark numerous times Rae was a horrible person and sure as heck not worth the hell he went through to get to her I found myself yelling at my Kindle to forget Rae and go to the other girl no spoiler which mind you I never ever do but this book brought it out of me By the end I was like DUUUUDE And almost rooting for him to get killed at that point of stubbornness and stupidity WIthout giving too much away its hard to explain In short if you want to be left thinking and somewhat traumatized READ THIS

    I read in a blurb for this book that it was a cross between HELLRAISER and 50 SHADES OF GREY Well I’m definitely a fan of THE HELLBOUND HEART although I’m not the intended audience for 50 SHADES OF GREY So how did I end up reading NIGHTWHERE? Actually it all began with a tornado warning An alert woke me out of a sound sleep and the text said “Take cover NOW” Immediately the sirens were wailing Being by myself I grabbed my dog and iPad and raced for the basement while the wind pelted rain hard against the outside of the house Weather updates designed to scare the living daylights out of people felt like watching Death come my way on my iPad That was when I decided that I needed the best distraction close at hand and I found this book in my Kindle library I didn’t remember buying it but the description made it seem like it would do the trick It did When I reached a stopping point the tornado warning had expired 20 minutes previously I wondered if the writer received the good vibes of copious thanks for distracting me at a time when I really needed it Of course my GoodReads account had automatically announced to any interested parties that I was now reading an erotic BDSM novel with supernatural undertones The thing is that the I read the less I was able to delete NIGHTWHERE from my “Currently Reading” shelf and keep it private Initially it seemed like what I would imagine the numerous sex club novels to be This one did have central characters who seemed a bit real and the sex scenes weren’t as graphic as some I’d read As the “pleasure from pain” scenes increased they did take on an aspect of Clive Barker’s Cenobites although they weren’t a copy I was intrigued from that point on I did anticipate much of what would happen especially one person seeking to rescue another There were some nice twists that were unexpected and that made for an exciting read Definitely be warned that there are several cringe inducing scenes featuring people obtaining sexual pleasure from mutilations NeverWhere being a sex club with no limits and a most unsavory purpose Frankly I don’t know that I’d read further if the story was continued in a new book Still from the perspective of a person terrified by possible impending doom I can assure you that NIGHTWHERE is distracting

    If your into bondage SM and kinky sex clubs then there is a place for you called NightWhere Except you can’t go looking for it NightWhere looks for you NightWhere by John Everson is the story of a secret swinger’s club where all your dreams and nightmares about pain and degradation come trueRae wasn’t satisfied with her marriage to Mark she wanted and whips chains and bizarre sex is what she was looking for Mark reluctantly starts to go to underground sex clubs with Rae to keep her happy Then one day they receive an invitation to a gothic sex club called NightWhereAfter a couple of visits to the club Rae becomes obsessed with NightWhere and disappears The location of the club changes nightly and Mark is in a race against time to save his wife Rae is going through changes and finds she loves the lifestyle that NightWhere offers She may not want to be saved but Mark loves Rae and will go through hell to get her backNightwhere is by far the most disturbing book that I’ve ever read I’ve read some hardcore bloody horror novels from the likes of Richard Laymon and Ed Lee but these authors didn’t make me cringe like John Everson did There were two times while reading NightWhere that I had to stop because I couldn’t handle the subject matter There are some torture scenes in this book that were so over the top that they bordered on ridiculous and left me wondering if there are people out there who are similar to the characters in the storyYou have to have a strong stomach to get through Nightwhere what kept me reading was I wanted to see what was going to happen to Mark Mark has to go through unimaginable amounts of humiliation and pain to save Rae He takes his marriage vows seriously and is willing to do anything for Rae and that is why I love the character so much I also liked how Mark keeps getting chances to walk away from trying to save her but he won’t stop because he is committed to herAnother interesting point in NightWhere is how much all the characters are willing to suffer to get what they want Everyone in this book gets tortured but they come back for because they are looking for something and their instinct is to survive until they find it Mark does several things he thought he would never do to get his wife back Also a character named Selena risks her life and throws away the life she has to save Mark In addition to that you see a lot of the patrons of NightWhere literally go through hell just to advance into the different levels of suffering and excitement that NightWhere has to offer Everyone has different reasons to carry on and nothing will keep them from their goalThis book tries hard to shock you but there is also a love story and it makes a point of how far one would and should go for the one they love It also makes a point about staying loyal to someone even if that person isn’t loyal to you Another thing that makes this book good is the description of NightWhere John Everson put a lot of thought into this world of torture and really brought it to life NightWhere is not for the faint of heart but if you love to be shocked you will love this book

    Where do I start with this one? Is it a 3 star or a 2 star? I'm not sure I ended up with a 25 star which truncates down to a 2 star It was a little better than okay but I can't say that I uite liked it This is definitely a horror BDSM story which didn't appeal to me even though I really wanted it to appeal to me It wasn't the horror that bothered me Even the evil perverse portrayals of BDSM didn't really bother me I mean some of the scenes I could see it in a Tarantino movie easily As a side note I can completely see uintin Tarantino loving and turning this story into a movieRae is a pain junkie She loves to receive it and soon turns to love doling it out through an underground BDSM club Nightwhere Her husband Mark is just along for the ride This book is written from several people's points of view Rae Mark George Amelia and once or twice it switched for a couple of sentences to Kharon A couple of the times the switch over to secondary minor characters point of view was odd too This didn't actually distract from the book too much I was thrown for a loop a few times and had to back up and reread passages to make sure who's head I was in to have the passage make sense The concept of this story is different than most I've come across For this I would rate it a 4 star If you are looking for a book where people revel in their demonic depravities in delight this book is for you The insiders of this club Nightwhere are unapologetic about their desires and I like that about them They are honest about what they want and they go after it It's like being in a room full of hedonistic psychopaths It's fascinating to watch If only a few of them were high functioning sociopaths then I'd been thrilled Since my preference is for the high functioning sociopaths over adrenaline junkie psychopaths it was a miss for me The world Mr Everson builds is not completely fleshed out no pun intended but he does it in a way I can admire He describes certain parts of a room or scene uite well and then it grows and becomes as elaborate as the reader's imagination Let's just say the Field of Flesh Rae's sleeping chambers the Red and various testing rooms were horrific journeys through hell in my mind Actually I have scenes from the movie What Dreams may come playing through my mind Also perhaps some of the scenes from Constintine Mr Everson writes amazing scenes I can clearly see every place he describes I can visualize every torture sceneNow I think this is a re affirming thing for me that there were no scenes in this book which sexual aroused me If it did I guess I'd be a really sick puppy For those that it did arouse no judgment from me If it works for you it's fine by me We just won't ever be play partners This is why it's really hard for me to decide on a rating From a creative and writing perspective it's a 4 star What killed me was the characters I couldn't bond to any of the characters And this is what usually lowers the rating for me When I don't like both main characters it's so hard for me to enjoy a book This is my issue For those who don't mind disliking the main characters in the book then this may not be an issue for you I despised Rae I couldn't connect with her and I definitely didn't respect her Her lack of ability to bring closure and honestly talk to Mark disgusts me Her selfish petty shallow and unbelievable innocence rubbed me wrong I wanted to be the one to hurt her and make her bleed I would have easily used Amelia's toy on Rae with a smile on my face The other main character was Mark I don't understand why or how he could have loved Rae so much to sacrifice the way he did I understand sacrifice I understand love I would visit retribution upon anyone who dared to hurt my family I have no issues with honest cruelty The difference for me is that my family has done things for me which builds my bond with them stronger There is a reciprocation which makes people understand my wrath if my family is attacked I never saw a glimmer of Rae's love for Mark That she ever did anything for him Other than fuck his brains silly a few times where is the bond? It's really just an obsession isn't it? So for this I am scornful of their relationship and I have no patience or admiration for Mark I find him to be a dumbassThis book is recommended for deviant horror readers who want to take a walk on the sadistic side

    Warning This is not a dark erotica or BDSM fantasy read It’s a horror themed book that includes graphic erotic scenes that are highly disturbing The emphasis is on S M at the receiving end of sociopathic mentality Doms Safe words are never used or addressed everBlue Red Black Meaningless terms until I read this book and found out why I never want to hear them used in this seuence with BDSM ever again I was totally sucked into this story with its graphic violence gore perversion blood letting and self gratification that is so over the top I had to continually remind myself this was just fictional horror story This disturbing look at erotic horror hardcore BDSM is not for the faint of heart but for those who do read it it’ll grab you and keep you riveted in a way I can’t explain until the shocking you won’t see it coming endSo what is it about this book? First do realize that this book does not depict realistic BDSM in any way shape or form It’s a horror book intended to shock excite and horrify readers Yet underneath that IS an actual love story where the hero if you’d call him that does everything possible and I do mean everything to save his wife and marriageI had to wonder how a seemingly normal couple who had their kinky side could manage to embrace the mysterious ultra exclusive BDSM club where ALL forms of sexual gratification and fantasies are realized Rae Mark had an open marriage that allowed for swinging and casual hook up but at the core they loved each other Rae a pain slut finds what she’s looking for at Nightwhere And just like a drug she gets sucked deeper and deeper to get her fix while Mark is pushed out because well because How could this happen? Why? The realism and writing skills by the author truly made this story come to life to the point I forgot that the scenes and storyline could ever occur in real life Or could they?Additionally there are sub plots that parallel other NightWhere clients who have different tastes and fetishes indulged under the eyes of the owners ? of NightWhere that are eually perverse and disturbing as what happens to the main characters Creepy voyeuristic individuals The Watchers encourage and promote the club attendees to indulge in whatever fantasy they desire yet never publically participate I’ve watched enough horror movies to know never go down the basement at night when you hear strange noises and never believe creepy strangers who tell you they’re not going to hurt you if you do what they say They’re only there to help you Insert ‘Dum dum dum dum dum dum’ music from “Jaws”

    I read this for an author invite group read at my horror group John Everson has a large loyal fan base and he is one of the good guy authors who makes himself accessible to his readers I admire that in an authorI found NightWhere very readable in a page turner way yet tedious in parts at the same time I didn't want to put the book down because I wanted to know what each chapter would bring and how the story would end but the constant sex scenes started reading like something at Literoticacom I found myself at times just scrolling through some of them However the ever increasing violent sex IS the story so I understand that it's just that for me that part of the story got to be repetitious Maybe I've read too much erotica over the years?The descriptions of what makes NightWhere operate are excellent and in a sick way I loved all the horrific details of the place It put me in the mind of Edward Lee's Infernal series Like with Lee's hell I got a kick out of the minute details of what happens in that hellhole den of depravity that is NightWhereI really enjoyed the beginning of the story meeting Rae and Mark and watching how these two very different people made their marriage work But at some point I started really hating Mark for doing so many stupid things he made my head spin and not in a good way I have a hard time handling characters who don't have enough sense to say Enough I'm done sacrificing for you and go on their merry way I mean when you view your wife's snuff film and later see her fellating the body of a decapitated man and you still want her to come back home with you you are an idiot The time of running to Bed Bath and Beyond as a loving couple for new bedding is passed Thank you John for mingling with HA members for the group read I am glad a lot of people got to read and enjoy NightWhere You pleased some old fans and made some new ones

    Have you ever read the last page of a book then turn the page and realize that there's nothing else so you go back and re read the last page again thinking maybe something else will materialize after you turn the page AGAIN? Well um me either I totally wouldn't do something crazy like that Okay fine I did This book was my first horror book I had no idea what to expect I mean I had envisioned Nightmare on Elm Street kind of horror But what I got was suspense mystery erotica maybe a bit of fantasy or Sci fi I'm not sure but it all rolled up into a wicked page turner I hated putting this book down shakes fist at family obligations Of course there was gore and blood but it wasn't over the top I didn't feel icky when it came along It was almost matter of fact but not because it was kind of a big player in the book The characters were all fascinating They all had a little bit of character development enough that you got them figured them out and either hated them or REALLY disliked them There wasn't really a person you rooted for You just wanted to know what happened next with each character After finishing this book I was left with the wow feelingfollowed closely by theomg what happens next feeling I really hate that feeling Please let there be a seuel

    Nightwhere can best be summed up in two words FREE KEY I'll give you a moment to figure it out Nightwhere by John Everson is an emotionally intense ride into the underground world of BDSMswing style sex clubs Everson pulls no punches in this novel that is extremely graphic in terms of gore and eroticism Very dark in nature and I do mean VERY Nightwhere follows the story of Mark and Rae a young married couple who are into the swinger lifestyle After being invited to Nightwhere an exclusive fetish club that specializes in granting patrons their wildest desires in both pain and pleasure Up until this point Mark had an idea that Rae was into BDSM but it was never revealed how much until after entering the doors of Nightwhere When Rae doesn't return after an evening of attending the club without Mark much to his dismay Mark embarks on a uest to find out what happened to his wife and rescue her from the grip of NightwhereJohn Everson's imagination is just brilliantly disturbing on so many levels I am a hardcore horror fan I've read the likes of Edward Lee and Richard Laymon and not blinked an eye brushing my shoulders off However there were several times during my reading of this novel where I had to put down my Kindle and look around like WTFD? What The Front Door? Yeah it was that disturbing The thing I'd like to applaud Mr Everson for though is where other authors in the horror genre have seemed to forget the art of the telling of a damn good story in favor of grossing the reader out Everson takes the reader by the hand leads them to bed pulls the blanket under their chin and then sits back and tells a story that is so entertaining so gripping you are instantly drawn in and kept there for the durationAgain some readers might be put off by the highly explicit scenes depicted in this novel I personally believe that in this instance the extreme gore and sexual scenes added to the realism of this story I recommend reading at least the first chapter and then make the decision as like the patrons of NightWhere if you're in or out I am definitely in and look forward to reading many titles by this author Btw if John Everson ever decides to try his hand at writing erotica I'll be the first in line to purchase his book ;
