The New York Times bestselling Repairman Jack Novels from F. Paul Wilson returns with The Dark at the End
Bound by his promise to Glaeken, Jack has refrained from making any direct moves against Rasalom. But things have changed so there's nothing holding Jack in check any longer. Other changes are occurring as well. Jack is healing at an accelerated rate--much like Glaeken did when he was immortal. This can only mean that Glaeken's time is almost up and when he dies, Jack takes his place.
Rasalom continues to plot against the Lady. Twice she has died and returned; a third time and she will be gone, leaving a clear path for the Otherness to infiltrate this reality. But Ernst Drexler, formerly Rasalom's go-to guy for logistical support, fears he will be left out in the cold when the Change comes. He forms an uneasy alliance with Jack, who is preparing to face their old enemy.
Meanwhile, Dawn Pickering is searching for her supposedly dead baby. The trail leads her to a mansion in a remote Long Island coastal town, where she discovers a truth she could have never imagined.
Now the stage is set for Jack's massive assault on Rasalom. Jack knows he's got just one shot. But it's not just a matter of taking out Rasalom: he also must safely retrieve Dawn's child and minimize collateral damage.
So, he comes up with a foolproof plan.
But fools are always with us….

More than 30 years in the planning, Wilson's 15th and final novel (after Fatal Error) of urban mercenary Repairman Jack and his role in the battle for Earth between two cosmic consciousnesses known as the Ally and the Otherness ends with a bang and a whimper that perfectly suits its apocalyptic designs. When Jack hunts down Otherness avatar Rasalom with enough firepower to take out the small Long Island town where his enemy has holed up, Rasalom proves to have the resilience of a comic book supervillain. Rasalom's plans to eliminate the Lady, an embodiment of Earth's sentience, and to nurture an anti-Christ like child who will fulfill his malignant plans for "the Change" torque the plot into refreshingly unpredictable territory. The finale, which deftly ties together the series' many subplots, plays out on a surprisingly human scale. Though Wilson promises several prequels, this thriller fittingly concludes one of the most consistently entertaining series in modern fantastic fiction.
Enjoyed the pacing, and felt he explored other areas of Jack that had not been seen before
