Rasalom has triumphed. His latest gambit has succeeded, despite the best efforts of Repairman Jack and the failing hero named Glaeken, and now the Change begins. It starts small--the sun rises late, against all physical law, and sets early. What seems like an astronomical impossibility soon comes down to Earth as the first bottomless hole opens in Central Park, right beneath Glaeken's window.From official release/information:
Product Description: This is the way the world ends…not with a bang but a scream in the dark. It begins at dawn, when the sun rises late. Then the holes appear. The first forms in Central Park, in sight of an apartment where Repairman Jack and a man as old as time watch with growing dread. Gaping holes, bottomless and empty…until sundown, when the first unearthly, hungry creatures appear.
Nightworld brings F. Paul Wilson's Adversary Cycle and Repairman Jack saga to an apocalyptic finale as Jack and Glaeken search the Secret History to gather a ragtag army for a last stand against the Otherness and a hideously transformed Rasalom.
