Veritas and Ian are so darn awesome and just another memorable couple I hope we get to see more of in future books in this universe. If I have one issue, it's that toward the end I still wasn't sure if that is the last installment in the Night Rebel series. The last 20% so much happens in preparation of the big showdown and the ending felt a little rushed and abrupt. However, the chemistry between both main characters remains strong and Ian always makes me laugh. He has this complex personality that leaves you a little dazed. With Veritas Jeanine Frost couldn't have written up a better heroine for this bad boy. She is such a badass and so protective of her Ian that it sometimes seems reckless. So on that field they are definitely even. No wonder I lost my mind on a regular basis when it came to Ian. Everything else could be replaced. He couldn’t. With these books and the complex storyline it's always a good idea to re-read the previous books before release. Unfortunately I didn't have time for that this time but the author does a great job reminding you of key events so that I remembered most. Well, it seems we need to say goodbye to this couple but I'm sure they'll pop up again and we'll get to enjoy Veritas and Ian's hilarious banter. And can we please, pretty please have a series with Veritas's half brother Ashael? He is such a charismatic demon and fits right in with his humor. “Shut your bloody face hole!” Ian shouted. “You should have shut yours!” my brother roared back. “But like a naughty toddler sticking everything into its mouth, you took the most dangerous relic ever and ate it!” If you have read Jeaniene Frost before don't hesitate to grab this series. I really loved it. If you haven't go and catch up - Cat and Bones are just as awesome - and make your way through this world. You'll have lots of fun and an awesome time. He was my real home. He was also my deepest love, my wildest passion, my truest friend . . . he was everything I’d never dared to dream for, yet now had.

He was meant to be your shelter.” - Warden of the Gateway to the Netherworld -—- “Ninety-nine percent of the time, nice people don’t make deals with demons. Only terrible people do, barring the rare exception. So, when those people die and their souls go straight down? Boom! Reinforces our claim that we had the power to damn them. But we don’t. People damn themselves by their own choices. We have nothing to do with it, but far be it for us not to take the credit.” - Ashael -—- “I never thought I’d have this!

    3.5/5.0 Another solid story from one of my favorite paranormal authors. I couldn’t really get into the escaped Gods theme and the ending was SUPER abrupt (would love to have at least seen them happy at home for a second.) But the entire gang makes cameos and it’s still a fun way to spend an evening.

    Sheena ☆ Oh, the Sheenanigans!

    Veritas and Ian have finally defeated their worst enemy, Dagon, but the power it took to pierce through to the netherworld has unexpected consequences. Soon, Veritas is forced to rely on the last person she trusts—a golden deity named Phanes, who is her original intended betrothal. But an escape from the netherworld—an attempt to save her missing biological father—soon pits Veritas and Ian against supernatural beings—ancient deities— seeking to rule over mortals once again.

But an escape from the netherworld—an attempt to save her missing biological father—soon pits Veritas and Ian against supernatural beings—ancient deities— seeking to rule over mortals once again. Now, they must rally friends and foes alike—while all in the midst of fighting the wedge between them that threatens to destroy their love. Can they stand together against the unearthly powers about to be unleashed? Pretty sure… yeah. I must say, all in all, this was a decent conclusion to Ian and Veritas' story though this novel was not as fulfilling as its counterparts. The built-up to the epic climax I was anticipating fell short. The abrupt ending—WTF was that, seriously?!—was anticlimactic. If the epic battle was a tad bit more drawn out, this will surely fall in par with the other books in the series. Despite that, I still very much enjoy this. The strong connection, commitment, chemistry, romance, and just about everything else with Van and Veritas' relationship was impeccable and definitely held this story together. The character development was an added bonus and a pleasant surprise. More so, we get to see old faces: Vlad, Cat, Bones, Spade, Mencheres, Denise, and more but the true standout character for me was Veritas' half-brother, Ashael. Every scene he appeared in—he brought the wit, the humor, the fun times. I especially loved the scene where he damn neared domesticated Naxos, a Minotaur from Phanes realm. I hope we get to see more of him (possibly a future series?) and the other characters in the great, epic fantasy world Jeannie Frost is known to create. It’s quite obvious she is not done with this series and I know there is more storytelling in store for readers.

    I set it aside for now b/c I’m just in funk and I can’t get over comparing this book to the first 2 in the series. Veritas has turned into such a dumb mess. I miss smart, badass Veritas.

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life. I really enjoyed this book! I am a huge fan of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress Universe and Ian has been a favorite character since his first appearance. It’s no surprise that I have been having a great time with the Night Rebel series featuring Ian’s character.

I really enjoyed this book! I am a huge fan of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress Universe and Ian has been a favorite character since his first appearance. It’s no surprise that I have been having a great time with the Night Rebel series featuring Ian’s character. I decided to start reading this book when I felt like I was starting to fall into a reading slump and it turned out that it was exactly what I needed to get back into the reading groove. At the start of this story, Ian is in bad shape and Veritas is afraid that he isn’t going to get better. She asks for help from an unlikely source, Phanes. As payment for his help, she agrees to go to his home and this is when the trouble really starts. Ian shows up and he is rather unhappy but doesn’t hesitate to jump in and help out with the plan to rescue Veritas’s father. When they get back home, they realize that the situation is even worse than they had feared and it will take everything they have to save the world. I found this book to be very exciting. It was fun to catch up with characters that I have grown to love in this universe and watching them flex a little muscle was like the icing on the cake. I loved the way this group of friends were able to work together as a team. There were a few times that I was worried that things would not work out the way that I hoped and I found myself reading just a little longer just to find out what happens next. It has been fun watching the relationship between Ian and Veritas grow over the course of the series. They always seem eager to protect each other but are learning to listen to each other and work as a team instead. Plus, they have fantastic chemistry. I would highly recommend this book to others. I had a great time stepping back in the Night Huntress Universe for just a while. Ian and Veritas are fantastic lead characters and I am hoping to see more books in the Night Rebel series. Initial Thoughts I really enjoyed this book and it was just what I needed to get me out of the slump that I was slipping into. Ian has been a favorite character for a long time and Veritas is a perfect match for him. I loved seeing what each of them were able to do in this book and I appreciated the fact that they were learning to work together before the book drew to a conclusion. I was pleased to see so many favorite characters from the Night Huntress Universe play important roles in this book. Book source: purchased

    Talia (Red Hot Ink)

    Very fast paced and engaging story. It didn’t feel as epic as the previous ones and I sorely missed some quiet moments between Veritas and Ian. In the entire book they had maybe one occasion to talk alone without someone from the gang being present and plotting the next move. Still very enjoyable, and I wonder if there will be more.

Wicked All Night is the final book in the Night Rebel series. I'm pretty sure the author has confirmed this is the final Ian and Veritas book? This review will contain spoilers from Shades of Wicked and Wicked Bite. At the end of Wicked Bite, Veritas finally unleashed her powers during that final battle against Dagon. But Veritas's actions have unexpected consequences on the netherworld and now Ian and Veritas have to fight ancient deities who wish to take over the mortal world. My absolute favourite part about Wicked All Night is the character interactions. If you're a fan of the Night Huntress Universe like I am, then you are in for a treat. The original gang is back together in this book and they're all teamed up to stop yet another apocalypse: we have Cat, Bones, Mencheres, Denise, Spade, Vlad, and even Marie. They don't all appear during the final battle, but most of them are there for the planning and negotiating processes. I love these characters SO DAMN MUCH and I live for every single one of their interactions. Cat and Bones managed to give me SO MANY FEELS even though this isn't even their book! As for Veritas and Ian, I LOVE them. There is a bit of relationship development in this book that further solidifies their love for each other. Plus, we get some more interactions between Veritas and her biological father, which was great. The plot in Wicked All Night is intense, but I would argue that it's not as intense as the previous two books. The ancient deities are the main villains here, but they aren't as scary and rage-inducing as Dagon. At times, the deities almost feel like caricatures. They do have extraordinary powers though and that's why Ian and Veritas spend a good portion of the book gathering allies to defeat the deities. Along the way, Veritas also has to face the vampire council and convince them to join the fight. The final battle is great, but it also feels a bit anticlimactic. My favourite part is Vlad's epic entrance. He really livens things up during the climax. The battle itself is shorter than I expected it to be and it also ends quite abruptly. In my opinion, an epilogue is desperately needed to completely wrap up this spin off series. I want to see Ian and Veritas domesticated. I also want to explore the consequences of the decisions made by the vampire council. There's room for more storytelling here. The author has not confirmed anything about any more books set in this world... But should she wish to continue writing in this world, some key events in this book definitely give her the space to do that. Meanwhile, I'll be cooking up some of my own theories 👀 P. S. There was one continuity error and perhaps even one minor plot hole. But this is an ARC that I'm reviewing, so the final copy might be different.

    There may be spoilers for books 1 & 2. He snorted. “You’re saying I overreacted in order to protect you? If gods struck hypocrites with lightning bolts, your arse would be on fire right now.” That was the tone for much of Wicked All Night. Ian and Veritas doing stupid stuff to save each other and then calling each other on it to prove a point they were in love and would risk anything for each other. Wicked All Night is the 3rd (maybe the last?) installment in the Night Rebel series by Jeaniene Fros There may be spoilers for books 1 & 2.

Ian and Veritas doing stupid stuff to save each other and then calling each other on it to prove a point they were in love and would risk anything for each other. Wicked All Night is the 3rd (maybe the last?) installment in the Night Rebel series by Jeaniene Frost, and like books 1 and 2, it features Ian and Veritas. I say maybe the last because the plotline this time around wraps up neatly at the end with no new big bad lined up for another story. The focus in Shades of Wicked (#1) and Wicked Bite (#2) was on taking down the demon, Dagon; now the focus is on two gods who escape Netherworld and the person who helped them (I won’t mention because it would be a spoiler for the first 50% of the book). All this is taking place while Ian and Veritas work on their marriage. They have a huge issue of protecting each other by leaving the other behind in the attempt of saving them. They are both powerful people and they forget that while the other one is in danger. They finally get it through their thick heads they are better as a team than alone. An even better realization they come to is that they don’t have to save the world alone (just the two of them), they have a support group of friends who are also powerful. They call their friends for help Assael, Cat & Bones, Vlad, Mencheres, Spade & Denise, and even Marie Laveau to take down the gods. Wicked All Night is more action and emotional romance than sexy times, but there’s one sex scene because, come on… you can’t have Ian as the hero and not have at least one. In true Frost fashion, there is witty banter between the characters. I could not find a mention this was the last book in Ian and Veritas’s story but it felt like the end with the ending and I’m ok with that. I feel like another book would be forced. It’s time to give someone else a story and I’m hoping it’s Assael, Veritas demon, half brother. While Wicked All Night didn’t get the A+ rating as the first two books, it was still enjoyable to read, just a bit slow in a few spots.

    Wicked All Night wraps up Ian and Veritas' story. Wicked Bite ended with the pair defeating Dagon, yet leaving Ian in an unexpected condition. Veritas has been trying, with the help of her half-brother/half-demon Ashael, to reverse his condition. When Phanes, her unwanted celestial fiancé, suddenly appears she realizes he can help her where all else has failed. His cost requires her to once again leave Ian and travel into the netherworld.

All that said, I feel it was a decent wrap up to Ian's trilogy. He and Veritas are a seriously kick-ass couple, power-wise. I always found it funny that it was Ian, not Veritas, who had to constantly remind her they're stronger together, he's not safer left behind nor is she, he will follow her anywhere ... including the netherworld with no sure plan to come out alive (oh Ian, you big, lovable, softie!). As Ian said, ❝... don't act as if you don't understand doing anything to protect the one you love. Yes, saving you might mean my death. If so, been there, done that, wasn't so bad. ❞ (✮✮✮½) PS: Can we please get a trilogy about Veritas' half-brother/half-demon, Ashael? I'd definitely read that!

This book could have been called What you'd do for love, but supernatural style. Battling deadly creatures, treacherous people, visiting other realms and as always, those fights are not for the faint of the heart.

I'm talking about allusions to a deadly pandemic, global warming, many mentions about allies, and what about a "trip" to Washington? Now it's not as obvious as the characters going to see the president or things like that, but there were just too many details to bother me. I read to escape the real world, and if there's a place I don't expect to be reminded of it, it's in a paranormal book.

    Is this the last Night Rebel book? 'Cause I kind of feel like this ended a bit abruptly. Everything wrapped up technically but I also feel as there should be more. Anyways, the good news is that this was way better than the second book. I had brought down my expectations for this book because of the disappointment of its predecessor but it was actually very entertaining. Not as good as the first book but I got a feeling that that one is going to be hard to beat. Is this the last Night Rebel book? 'Cause I kind of feel like this ended a bit abruptly.

    First of all, I really enjoyed first two books, so I was surprised that this one was just meah. Probably (first thing) that made me not interested in the story was that in first part of the story we have BIG crisis with a possibility of crazy jealousy scenes and relationship growth....but instead it was swiped off and left as some small misunderstanding. So in my opinion there was a oppurtunity and it was blown in the wind.

So in my opinion there was a oppurtunity and it was blown in the wind. Another mistake (the way I see it) is that author tried inserting those BIG and SCARY and POWERFUL characters but they came out as needy, simple minded and sooooo so predictable. I expected more from someone who created Ian and Veritas - two very deep and complicated characters. I mean, on one hand we have 5 000 or more years old guardian who had a personality growth over years and has so many layers it's hard to understand mind behind the name VERITAS, and on the other hand we have demigod (or god...I forgot) who doesn't care about Earth and time and human world, I mean we would expect someone who is completely different from regular bad guy, but no - he is surprisingly "standart BAD". Lets see, number three - the ending, where Veritas and Ian were realy invested in creating army and in the end I didn't see a point for it- there were no great loses, small marging victory that only their smartly created and big army barely win. No, we have a fight between 2 or 3 persons and I would not exactly call it a war. Four, Ian getting new powers and then losing them. I mean, in first book we found out that he isn't regular vampire - no, this one knew magic, were hard to kill and has good relationship with his very powerful sire. So using all this, he almost dies, but before that, he and Veritas face army of demons - that is something rarely seen. In second book, he gains a weapon that can kill everyone - something that a world hasn't seen for a long time, and lets not forget about teleportation and immunity against time freeze - he and Veritas can go on murder spree and nobody could challenge them. Sounds like Ian is a pretty cool character with so many powers, but no. In book three, he becomes even more powerful and then survives side effects. Why, why write in story that many powers but make them as background thing? Why not have this world wrecking fight were Ian goes against a god creature and shows everyone that he can use ALL of his powers at the same time and be a noteworthy opponent... Five, yes - there is five. Veritas changes from very mature person to bitchy and super cheasy name-calling bitch. She made entrance as senior to most of the others and yet - Cat becoming responsible about a child makes more mature decisions, conversations? Was it that hard to let Veritas stay as sensei figure who uses her knowledge of wars and strategy and blah blah blah? To sum up - I give those two stars because it kinda brought the world of Cat and Bones and other lovely characters back to me :)

    I’m so sad to write that I was severely disappointed in this book. Ian and Veritas are my favorite couple, and I’d been looking forward to the release of their concluding (I’m assuming?) adventure for months. I’ve read everything in the Night Huntress Universe and Shades of Wicked could be my very favorite book of them all. However, most elements of Wicked All Night fell flat to me.

I never got invested in the plot, and Veritas constantly over-explaining what was happening in her thought processes made her character lose so much of the strength and intelligence I’ve loved about her. The whole, “I’ll protect you, no I’ll protect YOU!” between she and Ian got stale quickly, and all the resolutions felt very contrived. I felt like we didn’t get any growth in the relationship between Veritas and her father, and the engagement plot line could have been explored with more depth. It might seem odd to say this about a paranormal romance, but it seemed as though all of a sudden everyone is SO much more powerful in a way that didn’t feel plausible. When Vlad had to burn through stone walls to get to Szilagyi in one of the Night Prince novels it was SUCH a big deal, but now he can do [everything he did in this book—no spoilers] with no notice and no consequences? It just seemed like the nuances of the plot that I usually love about Jeaniene Frost’s work were missing this time, and that people’s abilities (what people could do or not do and under what circumstances) were all a little too convenient. I did enjoy getting to know Ashael a little bit better though, and I’m am wondering if he and a certain vampire council member might have some of their own stories in the future? I’d definitely read those if they did :) And of course it’s always nice to have cameos from our favorite characters of the past. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll keep reading everything in the various Night series and spin-offs, but this long anticipated story was sadly underwhelming. Sigh.

    I was so happy to dive into this series, and now I’m sad that it came to an end. Ian and Veritas are just a great couple, and I enjoyed this wild ride. Not only was this an action-filled book with characters from different pantheons, but there was also humor, sadness, surprises, and so much love between the couple. Speaking of couples, it was great to see the MCs from the other series, and now I want some of the side characters in this one to get their own.

This author is a word master, and she will keep you on the edge of your seat until you finish, breathless and spent. Highly recommend. I was provided a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Aly is so frigging bored

    This was non stop action! I loved everything in it... My only complaint: it ended too soon! I need an epilogue or something to give me an update on Ian and Veritas and Ashael and everyone else

    This was one of my most anticipated books of the year and I’m obsessed with the first two books in the series. This one was such a let down compared to them and I’m so sad about it. It wasn’t bad by any means but it just felt rushed and too short to wrap up everything. I also wanted like more moments with Ian and Veritas. I’m almost hoping this isn’t the last book in this series because if it is I’m so disappointed. I feel like Jeanine Frost isn’t great at conclusions.

    Jeaniene Frost books are a guilty pleasure for me. I could rant about their subtle misogyny for hours, or how problematic the narrative structure is when the sexy, powerful vampire man has to hold the woman captive "for her own good." Sometimes, the vampire male leads turn the female leads into vampires without their consent. Even when that exact scenario isn't at play, the men still have to show off how "alpha" they are all the damn time. And yet despite all that, I still enjoy the superpowers.

Sometimes, the vampire male leads turn the female leads into vampires without their consent. Even when that exact scenario isn't at play, the men still have to show off how "alpha" they are all the damn time. And yet despite all that, I still enjoy the superpowers. There is enough action to keep me interested. These latest 3 books, still in the same "Night Huntress" universe, focus upon previously minor characters Veritas and Ian. These books are a bit different from the others. Both characters started out as vampires with centuries of experience. So, no vampire transformations with issues of consent. Both vampires have additional magic/demonic powers above and beyond the usual vampire powerset. Both these protagonists are bisexual, though their relationship with each other is clearly heterosexual. And most importantly, in this novel we watched the protagonists literally explore another dimension, and interact with entirely different supernatural creatures we have never seen before in this universe. Frost has previously talked as if the only possible species in her universe were humans, vampires, and ghouls. Over the last decade she has chipped away at this limitation to include demons, witches, and half-gods. In this novel, there is an actual minotaur antagonist. Cat and Bones, the original protagonists in this "Paranormal Romance" universe, make cameos in this latest installment. So too do the other major vampire men. This series does deserve an eyeroll in that all the male leads are sexy, rich, powerful "master vampires." They're never any other species, even though there are multiple species in this universe. They're never homely. They're never poor. A bunch of "romance" clichés are checked here. ... But it's still a little enjoyable. A crazy person yelled at me for this review not too long ago, apparently upset with the fact I'm a liberal. Setting aside the appropriateness of this tactic (or the complaint itself), the author is really painting herself into a corner by using such formulaic plots every book. The fact that the male leads are always rich, handsome, powerful vampires offends me more for its narrative boredom than out of any kind of woke-outrage. The author is only trying to appeal to one particular demographic of reader, interested in one very particular sort of man. Not only is this sort of man always a rich, handsome, powerful vampire-- he's even always Caucasian and beardless. Ian here is the greatest deviation from the mold, inasmuch as he is a bisexual, part-time mage with a cock piercing. What about a shy romantic lead? A star-eyed little boy who loved the female lead when they were children, and then sought her out again when they were adults? A burly Hagrid-type who tends the female protagonist's garden, overlooked by her time and again, until he dramatically saves her from demons/rapists/wolves/whatever? A nerdy mage in glasses who takes a rape victim out for a silly, no-pressure date to a skating rink, to help her feel more comfortable with dating in her own time? ANY same-sex couple, whatsoever? Jeaniene Frost, I am tired of gorgeous, rich vampire men. If you're going to do Paranormal Romance, fine! Do Paranormal Romance! But there are ways to do it without following the same formula over and over again. Also, it is confusing how you write female leads. They are almost always young-looking, beautiful, and willing to put up with a certain amount of "Alpha" protectiveness. Strangely, none of them are ever interested in motherhood. Where you had a storyline about Leila finding out that she could pass on her magical gift to a relative? At that point her only living maternal relative was her sister. Leila was turned into a vampire, so could no longer have children. Then, almost entirely off-panel, her sister also got turned into a vampire. This meant that the magical gift passed down from generation to generation was effectively ended. A bloodline of witches was eradicated, neither of these women is ever going to have children, and this was just accepted without any discussion. Cat had a daughter by accident/trickery, without giving birth. None of the other female leads discuss having children at all, not even through adoption. Sure, not every woman in the world wants to have kids. But it isn't realistic that this "Night Huntress Universe" cycles through multiple female leads, and none of them EVER want children. (Cat, Leila, Denise, Kira, Veritas, Elise, and to a lesser extent Leila's sister, all apparently were willing to become vampires before having children, without any discussion with their romantic partners about maybe giving birth first, or adopting children afterward. I'm not saying every woman wants children, or should, but it's weird that NONE of these women did.)

    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review. This third entry in Frost's Night Rebel series pits Ian and Veritas against supernatural beings who they've accidentally allowed to escape from the netherworld.

This third entry in Frost's Night Rebel series pits Ian and Veritas against supernatural beings who they've accidentally allowed to escape from the netherworld. Now it's up to them to put things right, even while the vampire council is determined to execute Veritas. The first book was full of fun and good humor until the end (when we were left rather bereft what with Ian's amnesia and Veritas having to leave him in order to save him), and the second book focused on Ian's determination to win not just Veritas' heart but her trust in their love. In book number three, the two of them have to team up with friends old and new to thwart what could literally be the end of the world. After spending literally thousands of years going it alone, this is a new concept for Veritas, who is just getting used to trusting one person (Ian) to have her back. It's a joy to see Veritas becoming less of a (ahem) tight ass and more of a real person who is funny and happy and willing to take emotional risks. It's hard to believe that this Ian is the same one from the earlier books, but when we see him in action as a Master vampire (or hear him taunting Vlad), we know that deep down, nothing has changed. Wicked All Night wraps things up, and I think another book would be jumping the shark. As much as I love these two, I don't think we need to know anything more. When Ian and Veritas were first introduced to readers, they both seemed shallow and one dimensional. Over the course of these three books, Frost has developed them into multifaceted beings who were last seen teleporting off into the sunset. That seems like a great place to leave them.
