Product Description

Product Description

Repairman Jack at the End of the World

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop what you are doing and buy this! 9 Dec 2002
Format:Hardcover
Summary: The finale to the greatest set of books ever written!
No matter your taste in books, this is definitely a must read, even if you have never read any other books by the author. He draws to close events that happened in The Keep, Reborn and Reprisal, and introduces old favourties from The Tomb and The Touch.
This is the grand finale to the ultimate battle of good versus evil, with the fate of humanity at hand.
Wilson writes through the perspective of his characters, showing their perspectives, and how events affect them, good or bad. You really get to know the characters, and can immediately empathise with them, and their challenging plight in trying to stop the ultimate bad guy!
I read this first, not realising that it was the last in a series of 6 books. It did not detract from the story, but made me want more. I've since become a huge fan.
If you like horror, fantasy and realism (the events, no matter how fantastic, are written in such a way, that you will think that they are actually happening); a gripping story and deep, varied characters, this is the book for you. Go now, read it!

Format:Hardcover
My first introduction to F. Paul Wilson, and the worlds of Repairman Jack, Glaeken and Rasalom was by happening across this masterpiece. Finding out that it was the last of a series of 6 books only made me want more. Every time I pick this up to read, I simply have to finish it.
Drawing together elements and characters from the first three novels in the series (The Keep, The Tomb and The Touch) and continuing from Reborna dn Reprisal, Nightworld is the dramatic finale of the ultimate battle: Rasalom, the agent of evil and the malign force, and Glaeken, the champion of humanity. Set in modern day New York, Wilson provides us with a tale of how the semmingly hopeless task of defeating a powerful, near omnipotent enemy can be achieved by a diverse set of characters and a lot of hope, and the belief of the greatest hero of them all, Glaeken.
Wilson's strengths lie in telling the story through the eyes of his characters. Each chapter concentrates on one or a few of the main players of the tale, showing us their feelings, hopes, experiences and weaknesses. You get to know the characters, and can empathise with them immediately. He can also make the fantastic appear very matter of fact, relaying the events as they unfold through the media. It is almost as if the story is really happening.
The pace picks up just when it needs to, especially just before the end, with each character having to desparately overcome several obstacles. Wilson's love of his characters is more than apparent, and they are certainly not 2 dimensional.
Flaws? When I find some, I'll let you know. But to get a true picture and taste of Nightworld, read the other books. The only other is that I want to spend hours discussing the book, but it is best experienced first hand. Why are you still here? GO, READ!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fitting End! 17 July 2012
By Bruce TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
After reading all those Repairmen Jack novels and getting hooked on what has been a long-running, yet constantly engaging series - there has to be an end and this is it. For those who have followed the series, this does tie up the loose ends of all the minor characters - although many have already been killed off by now and this is of course, Jack's chance to wreak his final revenge for the loss of many friends.

It is possible now to see this as part II of The Dark at the End (Repairman Jack) - and so we have an extended and expanded version of the original "Adversary" series, that focuses more on Jack and his connection to everything. Finally we understand what place "Munroe" village has in the secret history, for example.

If you have followed the series and are hooked, then this book is gripping reading and in fact, almost compulsory reading. Anybody else is best warned off and pointed to an earlier point in the timeline. The atmosphere here is bleak and hopeless - the outlook for every character is totally depressing. But what Wilson explores is how we all find meaning and the will to go on, when we know there is no realistic hope. What is it about human beings that keeps them going and keeps them optimistic?

For some of the characters it is other people who keep them going - but inevitably for some, they have to find the strength within themselves and that is the main dynamic running through the action in this part of the story. We get some really horrific scenes and the descriptions of a Lovecraft-like dystopia will probably be the most obvious characterisation. But in a way, this is more like Michael Moorcock's idea of chaos and law acting out across the multiverse.

< This is a review of the revised and expanded version of `Nightworld' published by F. Paul Wilson in 2012, although some of the comments are relevant to the earlier (circa. 1992) version of this novel. >

`Nightworld' is where it all ends. What began with `The Keep' and was continued through a number (one could almost say innumerable) `Repairman Jack' novels is tied up and finished in this novel. In it we say goodbye to a number of favourite characters (both good and bad) and some which should never have been allowed into print. It's a good novel, but a novel of two-halves.

On the plus side this is a fine end to the Adversary Cycle/ Secret History of the World Cycle which has taken up the more recent Repairman Jack novels (inc. the Young Repairman Jack novels). Praise where praise is due, the sheer readability of these novels has kept me returning to F. Paul Wilson year-on-year, as a new novel in the sequence is published.

As in all good horror novels the characters aren't too overdeveloped* (we never get a look into the inner lives of most of them), rather the novel is events driven, yet they have become well known to us over the past few years. It also has Rasalom (aka. The Adversary, Sara Lom, Rafe Losmara, Sal Roma: the possibilities are endless - let the reader understand), perhaps one of the most ridiculously bad baddies in recent years. It is the perfect read for a long journey home. The ideas are also interesting: Chaos/ Gravity Holes, airborne Leviathans, creates from the chaos realms etc.
