The Last Night
After a chain of earthquakes ravaged the globe, long-dormant viruses were released into the air, turning many humans into creatures with an appetite for human ashes. Erica and a group of survivors are barricaded in a half-destroyed hotel, and every day brings them closer to being devoured by the seemingly unstoppable ashers. Even though Erica is a fighter, she's tired of j...more
After a series of devastating earthquakes around the globe an unknown virus or bacteria is unleashed from beneath the earth, infecting and changing some people into Fire Eaters or Ashers. No longer human, their skin no longer flesh, but rough stone, they feed on charred human flesh. Erica is holed up with a group of other survivors in a crumbling hotel in Phoenix, Arizona, barely surviving. They have little defence against the Ashers. When a group of Ashers attack the survivors one day ...more
The story starts out with Erica on the cusp of another fight. Night is beginning to fall, and the ashers, the name they’ve given the ash-eating stone-fleshed monsters that some humans mutated to, are attacking.

Since the blurb describes the plot perfectly let me just jump right into what I thought of THE LAST NIGHT.
I've been excited to check out Nico Rosso's work since reading an interview with him last year. There are plenty of men who write love stories but I've honestly never heard of one who writes romance before so the novelty of it put him on my radar. Fortunately, his writing falls into genres I love so I was really looking forward to the release of THE LAST NIGH ...more

Has: I am a sucker for the post apocalyptic setting in a romance and I loved the look of The Last Night and within that opening scene it certainly lived up to that promise! The world has undergone a series of earthquakes which has destroyed civilisation and either killed or transformed people into fire and ash eating mutants, called Ash ...more
Full review to be posted soon:
I really loved the stark, and desolate world which has undergone an immense upheaval with earthquakes from the earth turning inside out. There are also mutated humans called Ashers or Fire Eaters and they were pretty unique in the scary factor running rampant and destroying the environment by burning and consuming everything in their path including humans. You also have to love the Mad Max style of the introduction of the hero which was one of the b ...more
