The Dark at the End by F. P. Wilson,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Dark at the End (Repairman Jack Novels) (Hardcover)It ain't over 'til it's over, but this book gets us to the "end" of the Repairman Jack series. The real end is in "Nightworld", originally written by Wilson back in 1992, where Jack has a significant part in the downfall of the Otherness on Earth. Wilson has re-written/"heavily revised" "Nightworld" to reflect the changes he's made in the RJ universe since 1993 (it's out later this year); "Nightworld" was originally written before Wilson decided to continue the RJ series in 1998 (with "Legacies"). As I had read "Nightworld" when it first came out, I was expecting most of the events that occur in the last half of this book; if you haven't read the original "Nightworld", I recommend that you hold off. In "The Dark at the End," Jack gets together with Glaeken, the Lady, and Weezy to find and kill Rasalom, with the finale providing the lead-in the the re-written "Nightworld". Jack's friend Abe outdoes himself with the selection of weaponry Jack uses, leading to several WTF moments. As such, this book wraps up all of the loose ends developed over the last four or so RJ novels, brings into play the events of Wilson's YA "Circle" novels (about Jack's youth), and serves as a good bridge into "Nightworld." I so look forward to it.
