Laurie Garrison
Danger has never been so sexy, come and read a twist in the shape-shifting world and meet some hot dinosaurs. I felt this book was way better than the first two. Nina Bangs creativity for the end of this world Mayan prophecy is just outstanding on how she brings everything together, I just can’t wait for the big finish. I found this one to be an emotional ride with all emotions present. You meet a few new characters the most important is Kione he is a prince of the faes.

I am still shocked by this series, but I have to admit the dino-shifter and Mayan prophecy makes for an awesome book. If you like sexy shifters and the wolves are starting to bore you, read the Gods of the Night series. This series gets better and better with each one. My only complaint is that the author is not getting the next in the series on the shelf quick enough. As far as I’m concerned this quote from the book is reason enough to run out, buy the book and read it. “Utah was hot nights, t ...more

Eternal Prey by Nina Bangs was astounding. I have personally enjoyed all three books in the Gods of the Night series, and honestly, book 2 (Eternal Craving) was my absolute favorite, but none of them even come close to the depth in which she dives in Eternal Prey. This book explores life, love and death on completely different and deeper levels. In Eternal Prey we follow the paths of Utah and Lia, two very different predators, as they find themselves, so they can find each other. By the end I ha ...more

Captivating! Exciting! & HOT!

“Hot nights, tangled sheets, and screaming orgasms” is how you can describe these sexy dinosaur beasts. This third book in the series is totally awesome. Utah and Lia are perfectly matched as their inner beast becomes uncontrollable with blood lust as their predators seek out their prey in the hunt for Seven. This action pack story keeps you glued to the book with a fantastic HEA ending.

The romance erotica between Utah and Lia was perfect and was glad Nina took time

I don't know what to say that I haven't said already in my previous reviews on this series. Only, it's somehow managing to get even better. More characters are developed, particularly the dark fey prince (who is... mouth watering) and Fin and his brother. More about the plot (which I love most of all) is revealed, and the questions seemed to have slowed down. Now is all about waiting for the truth to slowly come out in installments, and it was excellent, because in this book we learn MUCH more

A big step up from the first two. The characters are more fleshed out and many of the more shadowy characters reveal actually interesting back story. Eternal Prey feels like more thought was put into the story telling than in its predecessors, which is a definite plus. Nina Bangs seems to be slowly moving away from the silliness that marked the first book in this series and is beginning to give the reader more to digest with far less laughable dialogue and ridiculous character traits. While I lo ...more

I never thought there would come a day that I would think of dinosaurs as sexy. Well, I was wrong. The God of the Night series, written by Nina Bangs, sure changed my mind!

This unique combination of men who become fierce, extremely large, and dangerous predators tempered with a human soul and their courageous female heroines who stand beside them in battle will take you on an intense journey of heartache, triumph, and love.

The third book in this series, Eternal Prey, was as fabulously passionate

It's been a long time since I've read the previous two books in this series, but as soon as I picked up the book I began to remember all the details. This was another action packed book which kept me in suspense and also had me questioning the mystery behind the eleven. What exactly are they and where did they really come from. I have my suspicions (view spoiler) but I would love to know the answers!!

Hero hates vampires, cause they killed his brother--and pack-mate. (Yes, he is a shapeshifter, no, he's not a werewolf.) He's throwing a fit, because he has to partner up with the still-human daughter of a dead vampire queen. There are bad guys around, trying to destroy the world, and he's supposed to help stop them, but he's upset about his brother. This is a fast-paced, non-stop action, sexy read about totally awesome shapeshifters trying to stop the end of the world. I really enjoyed it. Best ...more

I really enjoyed it--the first half was a bit hard for me to get through--it seemed like the author was getting a bit tired at this point in the series (mixed up character names and descriptions twice, Chapter 9, page 193: "He [Jude] didn't get a chance to ask anything, because suddenly Seir moved. One second, he was by the door, and in the next instant, he stood between Utah and Seir" and Chapter 10, page 198: "Al's wife wasn't speaking for the rest of them...'Shush, Jenna.'

I will admit at first glance I didn't think I'd be into this book. Something about raptors and vampires just seemed nuts. I was in the hospital with few options for reading material, so I reluctantly dove in. Around the third chapter I couldn't put it down. There a couple steamy scenes. A few scenes that will have you fussing and wanting to assist in the fight. I'm adding Nina Bang to my list of authors I like. ...more

So. Good.
Utah was my favorite since book one. And Lia is just badass. And the ending? Swoon.
And I’m not just talking about the HEA. There’s a glorious surprise readers will love. ❤️

I mentioned in my review of Eternal Craving that I thought the cover didn't capture the vibe of the story. Well, they got it right this time. In fact, I think I kinda love this cover. It feels a lot edgier and more primal, which is definitely what I imagine when I think of dinosaur shifters. The blurring along the edges brings to mind someone who's so intent upon someone or something that everything else falls away. Like I said, this one captures the feel of the book far better than the first tw ...more

My thoughts:

I love the premise of this series based on the Mayan end of world myth. On December 21, 2012 at the Winter Solstice human life on earth will end unless the Gods of the Night (aka the Eleven) can stop Zero and group of nine immortal bad guys. Zero et al. were responsible for the extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs. Now the Eleven and Fin (their leader) will try to save the day and Earth's humans. The Eleven are now men.

Forget vampires, werewolves, and demons. The Gods of the Night, nicknamed the Eleven are not your ordinary paranormal creatures. They are otherkin; souls of ancient dinosaurs placed in the bodies of humans to help save mankind.

But Utah, one of the Gods of the Night felt trapped. He no longer cared for his mission as one of the Eleven. His energy, his rage is directed to one species…vampires. Determined to avenge his brother’s death, Utah releases his beast, bent on destroying every vampire he cr

Eternal Prey is the third book in the “Gods of the Night” series and with it we continue the countdown to the year 12-21-12 where a Mayan prediction calls for the end of the world as we know it. These eleven men with the souls of dinosaurs have been called to being by Fin who is possibly a God, to battle evil and save the world. The only things more deadly than they, are the creatures they are destined to destroy. While this book can be read on its own, I really do suggest that you read the firs ...more

Wow, what a let down... not so much the book itself, but when looking at the book list it showed only three in the Gods of the Night series, so I thought, maybe it'll all be wrapped up in this book, as we are way past 21-12-12... of course it being fantasy it wouldn't matter too much, but then again, to catch up with eight or nine books to couple up the remaining GONs after the actual fact and tell us how this series ends... too bad, because this series started with a great idea, an interesting ...more

Great read - third book in the THE GODS OF THE NIGHT series.

This one literally starts up where book 2 left us... the action has moved to Portland OR, but Utah is still efficiently thinning the vampire population to avenge is brother's death, and the Eleven are still looking to eliminate the latest entry [Seven] in the doomsday countdown.

Fin assigns Lia [from the previous book, she's the currently-human-but-soon-to-become-vampire leader of the Northeast Vampires] as Utah's partner. She thinks he

Utah was still grieving the loss of his brother, Rap. He had another brother named Tor and they three had always hunted as a pack. Back about 100 million years ago when their kind ruled the earth. It didn't help that he had killed many vampires in retribution. He wanted more!

And that is just what he got in the form of his new driver. Daughter of one of the most powerful vamps of all time, Lia is human. She will be turned someday but not now. She is there to help Utah and the current vampire issu

Eternal Prey (Gods of the Night, #3) by Nina Bangs The dino-shifter and Mayan prophecy combo makes for an interesting series. If you’re into sexy shifters who are truly larger than life, read the Gods of the Night series.

While the other books in the series rated from me 4 or 5 stars, this one just missed. When the characters get a little too whiney or a little too caught up in their angst, I get bored. Yes, I get that Utah has a personal vendetta against vampires. Of course Lia is going to become a vampire – it’s her destiny. Of course the

Great book

As I read more books, I find myself fussy about which books actually deserve higher ratings. A book needs to contain something that makes it so unique it becomes unforgettable. The characters in a high rated book make a person love, hate, or leaves the reader so conflicted they scream at the Kindle, book, or other device for mercy. The characters also spark empathy inside readers or the story becomes an empty shell. This story includes all of the above and more. I loved these stories s

This was another great story from Nina Bangs, which would've gotten at least 4 stars if the head-hopping wasn't so darn bad. I had to go back quite a few times to figure out which character was talking/thinking what. It bothered me a lot, which also bothered me because I LOVE Nina Bangs. I honestly don't remember this being a problem in her other books, but hopefully it's not a sign of things to come for the rest of the Gods of the Night series.

Talk about misspent youth. What did I do during those lazy summer days of childhood when I could’ve been honing my writing skills? Nothing. Okay, so I spent a lot of time dreaming I was a cowgirl with a trusty black stallion. Oh, and I read every Walter Farley horse novel. I was an only child so I relied on my imagination to supply the excitement in my life.
