Publisher's Summary

The end of the world begins at dawn, when the sun rises later than it should. Then the holes appear. The first forms in Central Park, within 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.

great finish

I first started this series back a few years ago, and the last book was so dark, I just didn't finish it then. In fact, I didn't make it very far into it.

Wow was that a mistake. The author did a great job of tying the loose ends together and coming up with a great conclustion to the series. I just bought the teen jack series on Kindle for more background, too, so I'm not done with jack yet.

This is the greatest contemporary story ever told.

F Paul Wilson is a master story teller that not only understand tension, pacing and characters, his world is a thrilling place to be. This Repairman Jack series is one of my favorite stories in creation. I wish there were 30 books.

If this ever happened you would be terrified!

Would you consider the audio edition of Nightworld to be better than the print version?

Never read the print version but enjoyed listening to this book!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Glaken, was my favorite character. Old and dedicated to his wife, and to the cause.

Which scene was your favorite?

Allen fighting the chew bugs and centipedes trying to be quiet so his wife and son would here him die!! He was a hero!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Kolabati finally realized that Jack wasn't lying about what was happen in the world and she took off her necklace and laid down and asked Glaken to stay with her as she passed on. Bill and Carol's reunion and love making was pretty good too.

not as good as original

frankly, I was disappointed that this is an adapted version that is linked to the repairman Jack series. I wanted the original book that wasn't linked because it was far more interesting without the new characters in references.
still I consider this to be an excellent piece of writing

Great series!

I came upon the books by accident and I have really enjoyed each none more and more. There was a misstep in narrators a few back but the story’s were still good. I can add repairman Jack to my other favorites, Frank Dresden and all the lord of the rings and Hobbit books.

Great Story!

Enjoyed it start to finish. Although Repairman Jack didn't have as central a role as he usually does it was still a great story. Wonderful ending to The Keep storyline!

Strong Characters Predictable story

Writer builds the characters very well. Narration lacking in inflection, character differences. I found the story very predictable, and the end very strung out.

The Epic Conclusion

What made the experience of listening to Nightworld the most enjoyable?

The resolution of plotlines laid out over a couple dozen novels.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack is always a favorite. He is like an old friend after more than a dozen novels.

Which scene was your favorite?

The final battle with Rasalom. An epic ending to an epic story.

If you could rename Nightworld, what would you call it?

The End Of The World As We Know It

Any additional comments?

I have followed Repairman Jack from his first appearance in The Tomb and The Adversary Cycle since The Keep. It all comes together here...all of it. Having just finished this final chapter, I feel exhausted by the sheer immensity of the story. These stories are the very definition of the term: Epic.

And so the end.

What a fantastic series of books this has been - it’s been a rollercoaster of action and character driven adventures from start to finish. This grand finale brings together all the characters from previous books, with Jack front & centre of the action, to face the final challenges and try to defeat the enemy once and for all.

I didn’t read the Jack prequels first as I decided to save them until I’d completed his adult adventure in full. So now I’m going to enjoy the back story with the three books outlining the genesis of Repairman Jack with the knowledge of where his youthful journey ultimately takes him.

A good read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

As the ending to the Adversary Cycle and Repairman Jack stories it closes the series very well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack, being torn between his family and his part in the fight make him an excellent character,.

Which character – as performed by Christopher Price – was your favourite?

Pretty much all of them, the voice acting was excellent

Any additional comments?

A very good book, its not a stand alone one, and requires at least reading the Adversary Cycle . With the wealth of characters from previous stories of the Repairman Jack stories it finishes things off very nicely.
