Book Description

The Outer Dark didn’t just take Yael Kaufman’s brother – they took her memories of him, even his name, with them to Avici, the Central Hell where mad Azathoth dwells. The only way to retrieve any of what was stolen from her is for Yael to take her brother’s Silver Key, strap on his gas mask, and follow him into the very dreams where he was lost.

Yael must journey from her family’s estate in the crumbling industrial city of Roanoke, through the labyrinth of the Underground and the desolate Waste, in order to reach the Nameless City and The Night Market that is held there. Along with Tobi, a brave and resourceful cat, and Jenny Frost, a psychotic, drug-addled homeless girl, Yael will face a blighted wasteland, savage bandits, a Black Train, Elder Horrors, the Outer Dark – even Nyarlathotep himself – in a quest to reach a market where dreams are bought and sold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovecraft for the modern reader January 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was first introduced to author Rawlins with Paranoid Magical Thinking. At the time, I had never read an electronic book, and now I'm hooked on the author AND the medium. The Night Market is vividly imaginative, with excellent character development. For those who are unfamiliar with Rawlins's work, prepare for a well-spun story complete with mystery, magic, and just enough esoteric allusions to give depth. I have already read it twice.

This is the most reader-friendly of Rawlins's books, nearly free (or as free as Jenny Frost can manage) from the profanity that some readers disliked in his earlier works, but still possessed of the characteristic darkness of the worlds he creates. I also have to credit Rawlins on his editing, which has improved from the earlier works: this book is nearly devoid of distracting typos. The story is something of a prequel to Paranoid Magical Thinking, but more in terms of the setting rather than the characters. Even if you have never heard of any of Rawlins's earlier books, this is a good place to start.

Rawlins clearly takes inspiration from Lovecraft, as mentioned by another reviewer, but his stories are infinitely more accessible. The biggest difference between Lovecraftian and "Rawlinsian" themes is humanity: The Night Market extols, sometimes subtly and sometimes outright, the virtues of love, family, innocence, and friendship, and casts them in stark relief against the indifference inherent in psychotics and abject demons. These characterizations are also personified within the animal characters in the story, who function as guides either because they choose to battle against evil or simply because it suits some purpose of their own.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Quick Read. January 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
Zach did a good job overall on this book. The best thing about this book is that its set in the same world as Unknown Kadath but its a stand alone so anyone can pick it up without being confused.

The characters are very personable and hard not to like. The plot was well written.

I give it a 4 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars best yet January 2, 2013
Author Zach Rawlins keeps getting better. This book moves quick, has good art and is a lot of fun. I'm a fan of his Central Series and am eagerly awaiting the next, but was rather surprised how quickly I tore through this new series. If you are a fan of Lovecraft, this book (and it's predecessor, Unknown Kadath) are just packed with things you'll recognize, but shown in a new light. If I was to compare this with another book I'd probably go with Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. This is an author who puts out a lot of writing and it seems to keep getting better, while keeping his prices low, so I'll be continuing to read him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Creativity! January 2, 2013
This is a great story. There is just way too many good things to say about it. It takes some of thing questions you had about the "Unknown Kadath Estates" and expands on them, leaving you with a few more answers and a lot questions! hahaha. This is the kind of story that you can't wait to keep going. You will not put this down once you start reading it and you will be VERY angry at Mr. Rawlins for now having the sequel out yet! If we don't get more of this series and the Central Series (which I like even more than this series, if you can believe that!), SOON, I will be the first to lead the angry mob against him! hahaha. Have fun!
