I loved this book for so many reasons, but the main reason was because the hero was Hispanic. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love and adore men of all races, backgrounds, accents what have you but it’s not often that I read a character that is of the same background as me, someone I can relate too and understand his slang and super sexy words when spoken. Gawd, it truly makes me melt right off my chair!

With that said, this book rocked it. Not only was Simon super hot and oh-so tortured but Sage, th

(RabidReviews.com)Dystopian books and I have finally clicked and I have been reading lots of them lately. This one by Colleen Gleason, writing as Joss Ware, was the second in this series about a small group of men that get sealed in a cave in 2010 and wake up fifty years later. The world they knew is gone and in it’s place is a world that was devastated by earthquakes, tornadoes, high winds, and it all culminated with most of the population dying. The group found their way to Envy in the previou ...more

I really enjoyed the first installment of this series and immensely enjoyed this book. I still think the romance aspect is a little lacking but I love, love the world Ware has built.

This book is about Simon Japp who is truly an outsider. He was an outsider in his life before the global disaster all but obliterated the Earth, and when he awakes 50 years later to this post-apocalyptic world he is the outsider among the other men who also experienced this mysterious Rip Van Winkle number.

Second book of this series and I'm still in awe with the world that Ms. Ware created. The romance is better than the first one, at least I can "feel" the attraction between Simon and Sage from the early chapters (for book #1, I think I waited untill past 100 pages?). Simon is a kind of hero that I like in a book. Quiet, reserved, yet deadly. He is one good example of the "tortured" hero for me. Love his ability by the way (which makes me wonder about Wyatt's and Fence's, as well!) Then Sage, my ...more

its a paranormal romance I can't get into it
Paranormal Romance
It's been a few weeks since the hero and his friends stepped out of that cave and into 50 years in the future, possessing paranormal abilities. The hero, considering his life before, could possibly be the only man alive glad that the world ended. It was the only thing he could have broken the tie between him and the crime lord he was bound to. Though the hero was never a cold blooded killer, the fact of that fact was that he did kill people. He can never wash their blood off his hands or forgive ...more

There are several editing issues and some odd plot jumps but over all a good book. I am quite intrigued by the concept and world building. That said I was interested in how Sage's origin worked into the new world. There were some things that bothered me but overall an enjoyable story.
Kelly Martin
This is the second book in a dystopian-romance series. It is a very good series with a good mix of action and romance. I truly recommend it to people who JR Ward.

Book two picks up where Beyond the Night (book 1) left off. The settlement of Envy (New Vegas or NV) is where Simon Japp and his four companions have taken up residency. The five men were kept in some type of stasis or coma in the caves of Sedona for the past 50 years. During that time things have changed dramatically and the world they knew is gone. Now the men are helping the residents fight the Strangers who are trying to enslave the remaining humans.

Simon Japp is a hero with a dark past. He'

Being book two in a series, and having the basic background set up already, I was able to get into Embrace the Night Eternal quicker than Beyond the Night. After finding out that the zombie-like gangas aren’t calling for ruuuuth but in fact calling for Remington Truth, the Resistance knows that they need to find Truth and how he’s linked to the Change and the Strangers.

No sooner did I finished the first book in The Heroes of New Vegas series then I immediately dove into Embrace the Night. It’s just as exciting, if not more than, the first book. Book one was all about ‘OMG what happened!’ for the five guys from the past. Book two feels like a aftershock. How did we get here and how we survive? The who/what’s/why’s are keeping me up all night reading.

Review reposted from my Smitten with Reading blog...

My Review:
Simon was the odd-man-out from the group of men that emerged from that cave in Sedona after 50 years. He was not part of the hiking group. No, he had gone in there to die. Simon was a bodyguard to a mafia crime boss, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and completely disgusted with where his life had led him. He was being chased by henchmen when he stumbled into the cave and had accepted that he was going to die...in fact, was ready for it

Simon Japp has a dark past but after the Change years before, when the civilization fairly came to an end, he got a chance to turn a new leaf. Now he's part of a band of guys who fight against the Strangers, a group of deadly immortals who pretty much control this new world and are hell-bent on finding every one of them and killing them. After waking from a fifty-something-year sleep after the Change, he founds himself with a strange power that might just be the thing they need to fight the Stra ...more

What a difference one book can make! After lukewarm feelings for Beyond the Night, I wasn't sure I wanted to read this book... especially since the lead character, Simon, didn't really spark much interest for me. But I'm really glad I did. Unlike the first installment in the Envy Chronicles, I felt real emotion for the characters --a connection I just didn't have the first time around.

The concept for the series: the world is 50 years past a near-apocalypse. Many of the survivors are living in w

I'm glad I have a three book minimum on new series (or new authors), otherwise I would have missed out on a great book. Where the first in the series fell flat, the second more than makes up for it and really sets the stage for the long run of the series. Almost as if this was the book that Colleen Gleason, aka Joss Ware, wanted to write but felt obligated build us a world that would suit this love story.

From the general description: "From the raging fires, five men emerge with extraordinary new

OH. MY. GOD!! If I get fired from my job, I'm blaming this book. I physically could put it down.

It picks up straight after book 1 and focuses on Simon, the quiet, mysterious member of the group, and Sage, the brave bookworm and computer geek. I adored these two! Simon's an outcast, his past is not a good one, no family and nothing but a life of crime. While his companions mourn their loved ones they've lost, and their lives the had before the Change, Simon see's it as an opportunity for a fresh

I love post-apocalyptic tales, even better when they involve a little love and romance. Which is why I luuuurve this series. This is book two of the series, and an improvement over book one in both story line, flow, and in that the main characters are both more realistic and more sympathetic.

I would like to give it a 5 star, but I just can't. Not because of the story line, which was fun and kind of exciting. Not because of the characters, because Simon is HAWT and Sage is a lovable, klutzy, bra

Embrace the Night Eternal is the second book in the Envy Chronicles. Five men were somehow preserved in a cave for 50 years. Simon Japp was one of those men. As he emerged from the cave, the world he once knew no longer existed. Most of the population died and geographically continents and water shifted. Simon and the other men find themselves in a town called Envy. There Simon meets Sage. He and Sage team up to go undercover in another community as a pretend married couple to learn what they ca ...more

When I started with this series, I read it out of order - 4, 1, 2 - and I had a hard time when I started book 1 because I knew some of the big revelations from later books. I got over it, I'll have you know, and I ended up liking book 1, but I think this book is the one that made everything click for me. I don't know if it was the characters in particular (Helllllooooo, Simon!) or whether I stopped trying to figure out how things we were going to find out in book 4 fit into what we were learning ...more
