The barrier between worlds has shattered. Demons wreak havoc across Earth; the dead are rising from their graves; psychics and witches are vanishing without a trace. The fate of the world rests in the hands of the enigmatic Tresser Corporation, a company of demon soldiers… and a kindergarten teacher. To save both worlds, they’ll have to travel into the mouth of Hell itself.

Where the Night Reigns was a mixed bag for me. On the plus side, it was great to see the culmination of events that took place in books one and two, and this story was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy on the plot front. However, I did think this the weakest in the series. A few characters were old friends from the previous instalments, but the newcomers felt really underdeveloped, as did their romantic attachments, which sprang out of nowhere in a matter of moments in each other's company. I didn't care about any of them as I wasn't given enough time to get to know them. This is a shame. Book one was great fun, book two was still fine, but sadly this one left me underwhelmed, though I am glad I read simply to see how things would end. As such, I am giving it three stars, since it does tie up loose ends pretty well, but it could have been so much more. I was also a bit surprised at the number of typos and punctuation problems that were missed in edits and proofing; although, I did not factor that into my decision on the rating.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
