Description

Remy Pendergast and his royal vampire companions return to face an enemy that is terrifyingly close to home in Rin Chupeco’s queer, bloody Gothic epic fantasy series for fans of Samantha Shannon’s The Priory of the Orange Tree and the adult animated series Castlevania.

Remy Pendergast, vampire hunter, and his unexpected companions, royal vampires Lord Zidan Malekh and Lady Xiaodan Song, are on the road through the kingdom of Aluria again after a hard-won first battle against the formidable Night Empress, who threatens to undo a fragile peace between humans and vampires. Xiaodan, severely injured, has lost her powers to vanquish the enemy’s new superbreed of vampire, but if the trio can make it to Fata Morgana, the seat of Malehk’s court—dubbed “the Court of Wanderers”—there is hope of nursing her and bringing them back.

En-route to the Third Court, Remy crosses paths with his father, the arrogant, oftentimes cruel Lord of Valenbonne. He also begins to suffer strange dreams of the Night Empress, whom he has long suspected to be Ligaya Pendergast, his own mother. As his family history unfolds during these episodes, which are too realistic to be coincidence, he realizes that she is no ordinary vampire—and that he may end up having to choose between the respective legacies of his parents.

Posing as Malek and Xiaodan’s human familiar, Remy contends with Aluria’s intimidating vampire courts and a series of gruesome murders with their help—and more, as the three navigate their relationship. But those feelings and even their extraordinary collective strength will be put to the test as each of them unleashes new powers in combat at what may be prove to be the ultimate cost.

Featured Reviews

Fantasy, fantasy romance, and genre fiction in general have peaked with Rin Chupeco's Reaper duology. It's what Mary Shelley would have wanted.

In the sequel to Silver Under Nightfall, we rejoin Remy, Xiaodan, and Zidan on their gory, gothic journey to Zidan's home, where they continue to contend with the bloodthirsty Night Empress and the other fearsome vampire courts.

Ominously witty and unrepentantly horny, the story is rife with court intrigue, breathtaking action scenes, and mysteries throughout. The plot moves at a breakneck pace yet indulges each of the beloved characters - old and new - in amusing and heartfelt scenes. Each word on the page is a delicious morsel of the narrator's distinct and pithy voice. The reader finds themself rooting for each and every character, villains included.

Chupeco has written the perfect sequel. A masterclass in modern gothic fantasy, Court of Wanderers is nothing but fun, adventure, and deadly sexy vampires.
