Watcher of the Dark launch day


Watcher of the Dark – book three in the Jeremiah Hunt series and my twentieth published novel overall – comes out today from Tor Books in hardcover, ebook, and audio editions.

WatcheroftheDarkcoverNew Orleans was nearly the death of Jeremiah Hunt, between a too-close brush with the FBI and a chilling, soul-searing journey through the realm of the dead that culminated with a do-or-die confrontation with Death himself.

Hunt survived, but found no peace. When he performs an arcane ritual to reclaim the soul of the magically gifted, beautiful women who once saved him, he must flee the law once again, to the temporary sanctuary of Los Angeles, city of angels.

In L.A., Hunt must contend with Carlos Fuentes, who sees in the blind exorcist a means to obtain the mystical key that opens the gates of Hell. Fuentes knows Hunt’s weakness is his loyalty – to the woman he loves and to another supernaturally gifted friend – and threatens to torture them in order to get Hunt help complete his dreadful quest.

Hunt has learned a lot since his life was irrevocably hijacked by faith months ago. But when enigmatic Preacher calls in his marker for helping Hunt in New Orleans, Hunt knows that all his newfound experience and ability will go for naught unless he can keep both the Preacher and Fuentes at bay long enough to somehow find a way to free his friends from mortal peril.

In WATCHER OF THE DARK, take a trip to the dark underbelly of the City of Angels to experience an engrossing mix of fantasy, thriller, and horror. This book is sure to leave you sleeping with the lights on!

10 Days of Halloween Specials – RIVERWATCH for free!

Halloween’s finally here and what better way to end our ten days of Halloween specials than to give away copies of the only straight-up horror novel I’ve written in my career so far – RIVERWATCH.

Nominated for both the International Horror Guild Award and the Bram Stoker Award


When Jake Caruso and his construction team find a hidden tunnel in the cellar of the old Blake mansion in the sleepy hamlet of Harrington Falls, Jake can’t wait to explore its depths.

There, he finds an even greater mystery: a stone chamber that’s been covered up for hundreds of years — sealed shut by some long-forgotten warden.

When the ancient seal is broken, a reign of terror and death consumes the town’s residents. Something is stalking them — something that strikes in the darkness without warning or mercy, leaving a trail of innocent blood in its wake — and Jake comes to realize the nightmarish truth of what he has set free. It is an evil born of ages past. A creature of eternal bloodlust. And it has risen to continue its endless slaughter….

Praise for RIVERWATCH – The debut novel of internationally bestselling urban fantasy author, Joseph Nassise

“A modern gothic thriller…scary…remarkable.” – Denver Rocky Mountain News

“Nasty, vicious, and perhaps most insidious of all – seductive.” – Midwest Book Review“A heady brew of horror and suspense that has an intense and original flavor. The book has both imagination and muscle. Expect great things from Joe Nassise.” – Tom Piccirilli

“RIVERWATCH is a stunning debut movel, intricately plotted and beautifully written. Nassise knows that a good “monster novel” needs to be fast-paced and terrifying…and he delivers action and frights galore.” – Tim Lebbon

10 Days of Halloween Specials – Day One

With less than two weeks left until Halloween, one of my favorite holidays of the year, I’ve decided to offer up a different special every single day between now and the main event.  Let’s call it the 10 Days of Halloween Specials and we’ll kick things off with a $0.99 offer on the ebook edition of The Heretic, book one in my bestselling Templar Chronicles urban fantasy series.

Heretic75offCheck out the high-octane thrills and supernatural chills of the Templar Chronicles!

Cade Williams was just an ordinary cop until the night he came face to face with a fallen angel known as the Adversary and nearly died.  Now he commands the Echo Team, a special ops squad of modern Templar knights, and the things they hunt are far darker and much more deadly than your average criminals.

When Templar bases are attacked by unknown foes, Cade and his team are called out to investigate. They discover a cabal of necromancers allied with the Adversary and are forced to take the battle to the enemy to keep them from stealing the power of an ancient relic for their own nefarious ends.

Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord, but Cade’s been known to bend a rule or two and right now he’s got a score to settle…

“THE HERETIC is a genre-bending thrill ride that heralds the debut of a urban fantasy series to watch…and enjoy.” — Cemetery Dance Magazine

Watcher of the Dark named an RT Book Reviews Sept Top Pick!

Extremely pleased to discover that RT Book Reviews has named Watcher of the Dark a Top Pick for September in their most recent issue!  Here’s a short comment from the review itself…

Watcher of the Dark

RT Rating 

“Every book in Nassise’s ingenious series somehow manages to supersede its predecessors, adding more color and absorbing new potential to an already fascinating world. This third installment not only challenges his unconventional hero’s arcane powers, but also his stoutly faithful heart, grounding the paranormal elements with very human relationships and frightening, real dangers. With snarky humor and impressive attention to detail, Nassise creates hauntingly beautiful nightmares that will enthrall longtime readers and no doubt earn many new fans.”
