Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Satan returns to devour the earth and its inhabitants in this strong sequel to Reborn and Reprisal. Rasalom (as the devil is known here) has shortened the daylight hours and let loose a plague of human-eating monsters that prey on New York's populace during the long nights. Whole communities turn on one another; riots break out over food; gangs wage war on the public; and Rasalom grows strong as he feeds on the chaos his creatures have caused. The only one who can stop this horror is Glaeken, an enfeebled old warrior who has battled the demon across time and space. Too weak to fight alone, Glaeken gathers supernatural forces to assist him, among them a boy with mysterious powers, a 150-year-.old witch and a vigilante named Repairman Jack. The death of one of the fighters reveals the overwhelming strength of the satanic forces, who have reserved a particularly gruesome fate for Glaeken. Wilson has written a terrifying horror that is also a solid old-fashioned morality tale.

From Library Journal

Reintroducing characters and situations from The Keep ( LJ 8/81) and his other novels, Wilson completes a trilogy about an age-old struggle for the world between two primeval forces. In Reborn (Dark Harvest, 1990) and Reprisal (Dark Harvest, 1991), the entity Rasalom, who had seemingly been defeated by the warrior Glaeken, returned to bring death and destruction to those surrounding him. Now, as he mutates into evil incarnate deep in the earth, the days grow shorter and horrible night creatures fly and crawl out of enormous holes to scavenge among humanity. Glaeken, now old, must send his friends on a quest to reclaim totems that will defeat Rasalom before his metamorphosis is complete. Part horror, part adventure, Nightworld is a thrilling and worthy successor to Wilson's earlier works. Although it can be read singly, constant references to earlier events almost demand a familiarity with at least the rest of the trilogy. Horror and fantasy fans will enjoy this one.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nightworld is a seriously scary book. Not personally scary but scary for the world as we know it. Nightworld completes the Nightworld series, which consists of six books, starting with The Keep. I've read all books and until the publication of Nightworld, it was called The Adversary Series, taken from the fact that the underlying element of this series is the ongoing confrontation through eternity and through the universe of two powerful forces.
These forces are not defined by good and evil for they are not. But one force, which is called the Other in the books, is brutal and caring nothing for humanity, tends to use evil means to achieve it's goal, while his adversary though not necessarily Good utilizes humanity to thwart His Adversary, The Other.
The Anti-Other, throughout history, has utilized a human champion to battle the Other. This champion is empowered with Godlike powers and made immortal for this purpose.
In the initial book, The Keep, which I've mentioned, the earthly agent of The Other, Rasalom, was weakened and imprisoned in a specially constructed prison by a champion of a long gone age, maybe a champion named Glaeken, whose subsequent job in The Keep was to keep tabs on The Other and make sure it didn't escape.
The Keep is a marvelous story wherein, Rasalom, because of some Nazi soldiers, almost escapes his incarceration. I won't go into the story but at the end, Rasalom is vanquished and ostensibly terminated but this is not to be and through the course of two more books, Reborn and Reprisal, Rasalom is rejuvenated, recuperated re-empowered and is set to take revenge upon troublesome humanity. The stage is set for Nightworld.

Wilson wrapped up his entire pantheon of characters from his horror novels in this one. I first read this without having read The Touch, Reborn, or Reprisal. Although I couldn't understand all the subplots, I got enough of it to sense the enormity of Wilson's undertaking -- he was essentially plunging into Hell the world he had created and included in all his novels. Now, years later (after having read the mentioned novels), I find the story even MORE enjoyable. I gave this 5 stars even when I was a little lost -- now I wish I could give it more.

I certainly couldn't put it down. Both times I've read it were non-stop sessions, and it is, I believe, the longest of the six books in this series. It's plotted so that the tension cranks up with every page turn, and you don't get off the hook until the very end. The ending is very satisfying. It really shows the depth to which Wilson understands his characters' and his readers' emotions.
This isn't actually a very frightening book compared to some of Wilson's others (I'm thinking particularly of Reborn, which gave me literal nightmares). There is very little violence or gore, just the extreme tension of the plotting.
I very much recommend that you read the other five books prior to this one if you want to appreciate the characters you will be meeting (you'll enjoy the other books for themselves, too). Then set aside one day (or night! yes, definitely a night) to read this one cover to cover.

Truly a master of his art, F. Paul Wilson grabs you HARD and doesn't let go with Nightworld. I read The Keep. Scared the hell out of me. I read The Tomb and The Touch. Great stories, but I never saw the connection. Then, with Reborn and Reprisal, I was beginning to see what was coming. And Nightworld was it. Rasalom (evil incarnate) is freaking nasty. There is nothing he wouldn't do to get this planet called 'Earth'. Nightworld was a 24-hour book. Set aside 24 hours straight, becuase you cannot put the book down. Characters that span 5 novels come together to fight an evil that is older than "Old". To take the time and patience to write 5 books to set the stage for this final novel is a talent most of us can only dream of. I'm glad Mr. Wilson chose to share it with us. You MUST read the five aforementioned novels to get the true feeling of this series. You won't be sorry.

F. Paul Wilson completed his six book Adversary Cycle (1 - The Keep, 2- The Tomb, 3 - The Touch, 4 - Reborn, 5 - Reprisal, 6- Nightworld) with this packed to the gills magnum opus. The gang is all here as the Evil One opens portal after portal to bring about the end of the world. What is amazing is that Wilson pulls imaginative monster and menace out of his sleeve left and right with seemingly little effort as he ups the stakes again and again, building to a full out battle to save the world from the nastiest collection of elder gods and cronies that you would ever hope not to meet (some of these things are really bloodcurdling). What is even more surprising is the emotional power as each of the individual yet interlinked stories wrap up with some hefty price tags. Highly recommended.

I e-mailed Dr. Wilson about a year ago congratulating him on this novel and he was gracious enough to reply to me. I want to say that for all prospective readers of this man's work in the horror genre, remember two things: 1) Although I love Michal Mann, don't rely on the film version of the Keep to get an idea of F.Pauls writing. 2)There are some Exorcist level horror/frightening moments in The Keep series(Honest!)-Beware! Ex: the scene where that man is trapped in the sewers in Nightworld and is made a host for some giant centipede. I don't scare easily but reading that put shivers down my spine, legs AND feet. One last note: The concept of a WW2 occupied Romanian castle/Vlad Dracula/immortals/German army officer vs. demented SS officer, etc. Is this a great country or what?-:)
