Book Description

For aspiring poet, Stefan Powell, everyday life in the town of Spook Valley has become a seemingly unbreakable routine. Between dividing his time working at a local music store, finding inspiration for a would be book of dark poetry, and socializing with his best friend (a modern-day, practicing witch), Stefan fears he will never escape the daily rat race of life. However, all of this changes when Stefan visits the desert surrounding Spook Valley.

What, at first, seems nothing more than a vivid nightmare becomes sheer reality when Stefan's weekly outing places him at the center of a young man's rescue from a mysterious portal appearing in the desert like some impossible mirage. Determined to comprehend the origin of the stranger, Stefan's world is thrust into chaos when he discovers that he has opened a doorway to an evil netherworld hellbent on bringing eternal darkness to Earth.

With the weight of the world on his shoulders, Stefan Powell now exists in a reality where the boundaries of truth and fantasy are obscured. Paired with his best friend and unable to determine if those who come into their lives are with or against them, Stefan will realize that the terrifying face of evil can don any mask--of beauty or horror--as each decision in his day-to-day life will determine the fate of the world.

Racing against time, and coming face to face with creatures reminiscent of myth, Stefan must unlock the horrific puzzle of the destructive force known as the Nightworld and find a way to stop the netherworld from conquering, not only the sleepy town of Spook Valley, but the entire planet.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Nightworld Waits November 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Somewhere out in the desert beyond the sand and the cactus lies a doorway that is waiting for a young poet named Stefan Powell to give it entry, to make it complete enough to form a union between our world and that of the demons. The Nightworld is a terrible place full of torture and pain, for years it has stolen away young men and women with special knowledge of the arcane and the subtlest desire to know the dark that waits beyond out own world. Now after years of waiting the Nightworld will use Stefan to gain a hold on our world, to give it new power and access to all we hold sacred.

Stefan is a man overcome by the death of his mother and the darkness that dwells within him. Living his day to day life he can't help but feel alone in the small town where he's found himself working bit by bit to complete his book of demonic poetry and hoping that something will come along to alleviate his loneliness.

One night when he goes out into the desert to be alone with his thoughts and search for inspiration Stefan instead comes face to face with a doorway. A terrible sight comes to him from inside of it and there reaching from its horrible depths is the arm of a stranger who pleads for rescue.

At first he thinks its all a dream one like many he's had before and gone on to write about but then he meets Breckin ( the man he's saved) and the strange truth of his existence is revealed to him. As the days move on more and more strange people come into Stefan's life and he's forced to take action he'd never thought he'd face in his everyday life. Again and again the people he loves come under threat, over and over his own life is threatened as he begins to see what his future holds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Horror Read April 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am by no means a bookophile nor an expert in the genre of horror fiction. I am simply a person who loves horror and loves to read, but has precious little time to indulge myself. Because of that, I am always hesitant opening up to a new writer. A bad read is a waste of this last half of a century I have entered! I stumbled across Andrew Wolter thru mutual contacts on Facebook, and am glad I did. Having read everything Stephen King and Ann Rice have written, I compare others to them. Andrew skillfully provides multi-dimensional, realistic details in his descriptions of the beasts and demons encountered, ala King. He then mixes in the intoxicating eroticism attributed to Rice works. Andrew throws in enough twists on old horror characters to keep everything new. In short, did I have trouble putting this book down? Yes. Did I want to continue to follow these characters after the last written word? Again, yes. And that last consideration is what makes me want to follow an author and buy the his/her book. I do not want to get into a recap of the story, as I would probably write too much and give something away! A worthy read, indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gripping tale of terror! August 1, 2012
By Jamie
Format:Kindle Edition
Positives: Nightfall is a wonderfully descriptive novel. One of Wolter's strengths as a novelist is attention to detail. The desert, mysterious gateways, crypts and monsters come to life with vivid clarity. In Nightfall, Wolter sets the stage for the ultimate battle between good and evil. While the idea is a well-worn path, his approach is unique. Evil feeds on the lost, wayward souls and their obsessions with it. Our fascination with evil gives it its strength and power. We create the monsters that come for us in the night. It's a refreshing take on an age old struggle.

Negatives: Wolter presents us with a fascinating premise on the creation and evolution of evil. Each time he begins to explore this theme however, he yanks the story away. It was almost as if he was afraid to plunge into the thematic depths and this story definitely has them. Nightfall is a great read, but there was the potential for far more.

Summary: Well worth your time! Highly recommended.
