A tad silly in several places, but if you can get past that, it's actually an interesting story.

What a weird book. Masterton leverages the "band of heroes" trope and sets them on a quest in which dreams are battlefields and chosen people must fight evil forces and save the minds and souls of the innocent. This could be spun in limitless ways; Masterton chooses one that feels very "Matrix", including tight clothing and massive arsenals of destruction. If he plotted any slower I might have given up on this, but he moves it along fast and describes some bizarre action sequences, including one ...more

For an author as talented as Masterton and as adept at putting out excellent stand alones for decades, Night Warriors simply doesn't make sense. It's a series, it's cheesy, it ranges from silly to utterly inane. It's so very ridiculous. The sheer premise of it...fighting in dreams because evil forces are trying to steal dreams of's utter nonsense. And yes, because Masterton is such an ace, he makes this readable, but it's a total waste of time. At least it's a quick read.

This was the very first book I ever read by Graham Masterton back in 2007, and I plan to do a reread on this one so I can write a better review.

I started reading this and just couldn't get past the first few chapters. I though it was more of a mystery book, but it turned out to be science fiction, and I just couldn't get into it.

I like Masterton's work, but I really couldn't get into this one. It's the first Night Wars book I've read (and it didn't help that it wasn't the first in the series). It took forever to get the actual story going. He spent too much time doing the same thing with all of his characters. It felt like he was fluffing the book a bit. When it came to the silly names and outfits of the Night Warriors, I felt like I was watching a bad 'Eighties cartoon. Or maybe that horrible Stargate cartoon. It just ...more

Although this is the forth Night Warriors story, it is a standalone entry. There is quality build-up to the main events (extra doses of terror if you are a parent), with decent character development (although somewhat stereotypical at times) and the evil that needs thwarting is, in usual Masterton style, rather evil indeed. He is clearly having fun with the new batch of Night Warriors and the fresh horrors which are, rather originally, twofold. Where Night Wars loses traction and engagement is t ...more

When battles of man kind move from war fields to the wide spanning Elysian fields dreams are made of, no one is safe in their homes, their beds and definitely not in their own heads. Following the previous three installments of this astral saga which are Night Warriors (1986), Death Dream (1988) and Night Plague (1991) this can safely be read on it's own but I would suggest following up with the previous books, if one is content with Night Wars. Masterton is only limited by his own imagination i ...more

This book's a bit ridiculous.

Actually, it's REALLY ridiculous.

Starts out promisingly, with babies dying in the hospital due to dream demons sneaking into their heads and taking away their ability to dream. See, every baby is born with complete knowledge of the universe, creation, the secrets of everything, basically. They lose this knowledge upon birth. So these two dream demons, the Winterwent and the High Horse, are trying to take these babies' dreams just as they're born and figure out the

Zrozumcie mnie, ja po prostu mam dziwny gust. W Mastertonie zaczytywałem się jeszcze w podstawówce (kto mógłby oprzeć się całkiem niezłym makabrycznym pomysłom i okazjonalnej scenie erotycznej?) i wspominam go całkiem ciepło. Jasne, czytadła, ale niektóre z fajnymi mykami (Czarny anioł) czy niezłym klimatem (Drapieżcy).

Wojownicy Nocy też byli nieźli. Nie top topów tego autora, ale całkiem fajnie. Ludzie mogący podczas snu wchodzić w marzenia senne innych, by bronić ludzkości przed demonami, któr

Alright. I hate for the first review I have on here to be such a negative one... But I am...not enjoying this book, to say the absolute least. The IDEA here is fantastic; a group of people selected through genetics to have the ability to fight evils of the dream world in their sleep. They become heroes, true heroes, with these amazing and unique abilities. A fantastic idea...but so poorly executed that I have been WINCING with every page I read. There are moments where I'm drawn in and I forget ...more

It was o.k. I did not know this was book #4 out of Night Warrior's series. Honestly, I am not going to read the others. I felt I did not have to read the others, that this book can be read as a stand-alone. But if someone wants more of the story well, then read the others. :P

It started out alright. I like the comic book-esk of the story and characters. And I love a good sci-fi story, but this did not do it for me. The idea was good, the story had a lot of potential.

Taking over the world with the dreams of babies...not going to happen if the Night Warriors have any say!
I had no idea this was a series book, which is a good thing. I read this book as a stand alone and didn't feel i was missing anything.
A great get away from the real worl - who wouldnt love to be super hero, and go byound all real life self. This book takes five people to that place and saves the fate of the world in the process.

Was worried I wouldn't care for Night Wars after reading a few of the reviews but Graham Masterton is a fabulous writer. I wasn't drawn into the storyline immediately but his prose kept me enthralled. After becoming invested in the characters I knew that not only would I be finishing Night Wars but that I'd be looking for more Graham Masterton to read.

Reading this was like watching a movie. Vivid imagery. Cheesy one-liners (I've never been in battle, but I think if I was about to kill or be killed, I would not be in the right mind-set for puns) but SUPER enjoyable and great idea. One particularly gruesome scene involving death by frozen penis. Yikes.

reads just like a movie script and therefore a little too predictable. Unfortunately doesn't measure up to his earlier books like Death Trance.

Graham Masterton is a true horror legend, with that being said, I couldn't finish this book. The dialogue was so cheesy and the characters so campy I just couldn't take it anymore.

Almost like a superhero horror story where ordinary people gain extraordinary abilities when they enter people's dreams and become the dream warriors.

A very quick read. There was a movie I believe that was made on this premise. I don't really like fantasy that much. so I feel my review would not do this book justice.
