Angels...Vampyres...Heaven and Hell... In medieval Ireland two worlds collide and the term dark ages takes on a whole new meaning...
An evil entity stalks Lazarus Conlon, Vampyre patriarch, threatening the safety of his wife and his family tribe. But to conquer this enemy, Lazarus must first fight his own demons, including a sacred heritage inherited from fallen angels. Amid this strife, Lazarus learns his only true hope rests within the heart and soul of a mortal tracker--his wife, a woman born to hunt and destroy his breed. Can she help him defeat this evil threatening his very soul or will her tracker heritage demand she kill him?
Neomina Delacroix is no stranger to the world of the Vampyre. As appointed heiress of the Tracker Council and the keeper of the Amulet of Christ and the St. John Stake, Neomina's allegiance to her people is sealed in blood. But she doesn't know that her father is not what he seems, and because of him, her true nature is grounded in the very evil threatening her husband. When terror strikes the Conlon Tribe, Neomina is their only hope. But will the dark heritage she inherited from her father save Lazarus and his Tribe, or will evil corrupt her soul and destroy them all?

"Author Angelique Armae pens a groundbreaking mythology regarding vampyre and archangels in Come The Night. The tale begins in Rome 476 A.D., continuing in Ireland 1095. Christian mythos lends a powerful structure to the tale, including an amulet containing a few drops of Christ's blood and a stake made of the wood of the cross and the silver from the platter that server John the Baptist's Head. A new interpretation of the events in the Garden of Eden provides the existence of the Vampyers and the Nephilim. Such profound theology lends the tale a uniquely original flavor that separates it from the vast market of vampire books. With powerful yet vulnerable characterizations, an intricate plot, and a scintillating voice, Armae presents readers with a novel impossible to put down, and leaves them hungering for the next book of the series. Come The Night earns the WordWeaving Award for Excellence." --Cindy Penn, Word Weaving
"Our Gold Medal is a special award given to a title described as an instant classic, a book that breaks new ground within the genre. Think you know all about vampires/vampyres? Guess again. I've read a lot of vampire romances and thought I knew them. This author has put a whole new perspective on the vampyre, their origins, types, loyalties, etc. I've never heard Christ mentioned in any context with a vampyre, aside from the danger of them touching a cross. And who, besides Ms. Armae would have thought to give a vampyre a Guardian Angel or having the vampyre redeemed by Christ's blood? This is a marvelous book written by one fantastic writer. I found myself so involved in this story that I nearly cried when Lazarus was hurt and wanted to slap his wife, Neomina, silly a few times. I just can't praise either the book or its originator more. Unfortunately, as far as I could find out, this is her first vampyre novel. I and everyone else who loves vampire romances certainly hope it won't be her last. According to her web site, she is currently working on another vampire novel under the name M. A. duBarry and there is nothing on when it will be finished and published, so we wait...impatiently." --Irene Marshall, Timeless Tales Reviews
Rated an 8 out of 10! "Wow, an original vampire story!!! These are few and far between...I found the writing style riveting. I actually had to force myself to put it down on the first night as I would have gone on to finish it in 1 sitting (and not slept at all!)...Come the Night is Angelique Armae's first book, not that you'd have guessed from reading it, and hopefully it will not be her last. It is possibly the most unusual vampire tale I have read since A Taste of Blood Wine (Freda Warrington). Excellent!" --Lesley Mazey, The Eternal Night E~zine
"It's 1095, Medieval Ireland, and Ms. Armae gives us a dark thriller pitting vampyres against demons...Come The Night is a complex story, a dark journey of the soul." --Elaine Moore, author of Madonna Of The Dark
"4 1/2 stars!" A fast-paced book that will blow your mind. Once you start, you can't put it down. Ms. Armae wrote a book that has romance, suspense, and horror wrapped up in one...A must read for those who like a book that is mind-blowing, adventurous, on the dark side..." --Karen Simpson, LoveRomances.com
"4 Stars!" -" Come the Night is a riveting book that will challenge the reader's perceptions of good and evil. Lazarus and Neomina are complicated characters that draw you like a magnet into their dark world. The vivid imagination that went into the creation of this story is abundantly apparent as you are pulled into the fight between the two Vampyre groups. At times, there is a bit of information overload, but they do not detract from the uniqueness of this tale. Thumbs up to Ms. Armae. This reviewer will be looking forward to reading more from this great author." -- Kathi, Fallen Angel Reviews
