The Audible blog included the Coldfire Trilogy in their “must listen” fantasy audiobook list:
“The Coldfire trilogy is a fantasy series following two unlikely allies who team up to take on a world-threatening evil. Beginning with Black Sun Rising, the journey of hero Damien Vryce intertwines with that of the villainous Gerald Tarrant. The two men, polar opposites of good and evil, must find a way to unite and defeat the Fey, an evil that manifests people’s worst fears and threatens to erase existence itself. Listeners repeatedly praise R.C. Bray for his excellent high-energy narration.”
In this exclusive interview, Celia explains how Nightborn connects to the trilogy, why it alters the formula from epic fantasy with some horror and sci-fi to sci-fi with some horror and fantasy, as well as her plans for other novels in the Coldfire universe.
Nightborn is available on Audible! The unabridged audiobook narrated by Marc Vietor has a running time of 9 hrs and 52 mins.
Celia and Nikki discuss building the beautiful world of Erna from The Coldfire Trilogy, Celia’s sources of inspiration, the “vampire” Gerald Tarrant, her latest Coldfire novel NIGHTBORN, her future plans, and much more!
Celia will be appearing in an interview on the Youtube channel iWizard. July 6, 2 p.m. EDT.
Here is a video they have already posted about the series: 9 Reasons to Read THE COLDFIRE TRILOGY by C. S. Friedman
Coldfire has been listed as one of the best fantasy series ever on Fantasy Hotlist.
“A dark fantasy masterpiece! If there was such a thing as a fantasy Hall of Fame, Gerald Tarrant would be part of it. It’s been nearly three decades since Black Sun Rising was published and the Coldfire trilogy remains one of the very best dark fantasy series to ever see the light.”

Great review for Nightborn!
“NIGHTBORN: COLDFIRE RISING is the perfect segue into the larger series and answered all of those nagging questions I had with regard to the origins of the colonization of the enigmatic planet of Erna. This was always a trilogy that begged for a prequel in my opinion and Friedman has written one that is about as perfect as you could ask for. This prequel gives the reader a front row seat as the first settlers of Erna begin to realize that the planet they all thought might be ideal for colonization slowly reveals that it is anything but.”
