The Night Mother

By John Everson

The sequel to NightWhere, a 2012 Bram Stoker Award Finalist!

Cassie, a popular dominatrix, is ecstatic when she receives a coveted invitation to NightWhere, a mysterious but legendary underground sex and torture club. NightWhere is supposed to be a BDSM dream, a place where anything, and everything goes. A place where there are no “safewords.” It only appears one night each month, and never in the same place twice. The only way to find it and get in is to receive an invitation, and Cassie’s invite insists that she must bring a partner. But her leather-kissed dreams are quickly threatened when her sub turns up dead in her dungeon.

Selena, a fallen angel, barely escaped NightWhere with her life and her lover once before. When agents of the club’s Night Mother break into her house determined to drag her and Mark back to the club for punishment, they escape and head to a safe house. But the Night Mother is determined to bring them back in chains as a gift for Rae, her new princess of pain. She will destroy anyone and anything that gets in her way.

When both Selena and Cassie are drawn deep into the club’s secret rooms that promise an ecstasy of forbidden pain and pleasure, they must somehow try to protect the men they love. Because the Night Mother has a deadly plan that may turn The Red into more than a hidden boutique of perversion. If she is successful, NightWhere may expand to lure in not just a chosen kinky few, but thousands of misguided pleasure seekers. And if it does, the whips will crack until the blood flows like rivers and the screams echo in the most remote locations on earth. She will break the boundaries of our world and destroy everything and everyone they’ve ever desired…

“The perfect storm of supernatural mayhem, celestial sex, and gore galore! Here you’ll find a new meaning for the word “clubbing” once you step into NightWhere, an abominable sex club for angels and devils and where S&M knows no bounds. This is hardcore stuff, folks, and don’t be surprised if you have a few whip-lashes when you’re done. Everson’s story bulldozes the reader through macabre edge-of-your-seat terror, diabolical chases, and occult designs, and in vivid scalpel-sharp prose he delivers the most exciting and original novel I’ve read so far this year”
Edward Lee,
author of City Infernal

“A novel of forbidden pleasures and violent depravity, where the line between pleasure and pain is razor thin. Enter a secret club where members indulge their darkest desires, and the demons lurking in the shadows are all too real. Another wickedly entertaining novel from a master of erotic horror!”
~ Tim Waggoner, author of A Hunter Called Night

John Everson returns with his sequel to NightWhere [and] brings back the blood and lust that made the first installment an “extreme” success… With pain comes pleasure but human flesh can only stretch so far…If there is one extreme reading experience that I strongly recommend, this is it my fetish friends. A sadomasochist five-star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating from Horror Bookworm Reviews. The invitation has been offered. Will you accept?!

Horror Bookworm Reviews

The Night Mother by John Everson puts the horror in urban fantasy horror. This story is sexy, violent, gory, and graphic, but the storyline is solid and engrossing, and the writing is fantastic. It’s titillating extreme horror for the truly daring.
