“Simply put, Nightworld is F. Paul Wilson's masterpiece.... Highly recommended.” ―SFRevu
“Sci-Fi, horror, crime: it's hard to define Wilson's tale since it cannily incorporates all genres and, as always, the pivotal point is the inimitable Repairman Jack, one of the most original characters ever introduced to readers.” ―RT Reviews, 4 1/2 stars on The Dark At the End
“Repairman Jack is one of the most original and intriguing characters to arise out of contemporary fiction in ages. His adventures are hugely entertaining.” ―Dean Koontz, New York Times bestselling author of Strangers
“A canny mix of sci-fi paranoia and criminal mayhem. Bloodline starts fast, keeps the accelerator down, and defies you to stop reading.” ―Entertainment Weekly

As usual, the storytelling is strong and compelling. I had trouble putting the book down from almost the first few pages. It is sort of a rush, to have characters that you root for so strongly. That you know so well. Whose stories finally reach their apex and it works!
In this last book, Rasalom has apparently succeeded. He's cut off Earth from the Ally, and the Ally, believing it to now be a dead world, has turned its back on humanity. So Rasalom is free to begin "The Change", and unleash horrors upon first New York City, and then the rest of the world. And this change brings out the worst in humanity, as those who are driven by duty or bound by their own ethics and morality cower in fear and avoidance of the terrors of the ever expanding night and those who have no such scruples run wild. Glaeken, Jack and others hurry to assemble the tools they need to defeat Rasalom and his goals, but one obstacle after another impedes their progress.
I looked forward to this reissue of Wilson's earlier edition by the same title. Apparently this one is heavily revised to incorporate characters that simply didn't exist in his mind when he wrote the original NIGHTWORLD many years ago. Jack, a bit player in that edition, is now one of the main characters in this version. I haven't read the original, but as Jack is one of my favorite characters, I will stick with this one.
I may be overenthusiastic about this book because I just finished it in a rush of reading, and because I like the series so much to this point. But I stand by my assessment. I don't think it will stand as well as some of Wilson's books do on their own, but as part of the series, it is really good. Grab this one if you're a fan of Repairman Jack or if you've read some or most of the series.
Like I suspect many others did, I read the original before reading this version so that I could see what differences were made. Having read the entire Adversary and Repairman Jack cycles up until that point, and reading the original Nightworld, it was pretty obvious where some of the changes would need to be made. Some of the additional storylines that were added are excellent additions and serve as a great finale to the RJ series.
