Publisher's Summary

From the authors of the New York Times best-selling novel Welcome to Night Vale and the number one podcast of the same name comes a mystery exploring the intersections of faith and science, the growing relationship between two young people who want desperately to trust each other and the terrifying, toothy power of the Smiling God.

Nilanjana Sikdar is an outsider to the town of Night Vale. Working for Carlos, the town's top scientist, she relies on fact and logic as her guiding principles. But all of that is put into question when Carlos gives her a special assignment investigating a mysterious rumbling in the desert wasteland outside of town.

This investigation leads her to the Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God, and to Darryl, one of its most committed members. Caught between her beliefs in the ultimate power of science and her growing attraction to Darryl, she begins to suspect the Congregation is planning a ritual that could threaten the lives of everyone in town. Nilanjana and Darryl must search for common ground between their very different world views as they are faced with the Congregation's darkest and most terrible secret.

    "It Delivers"

    A fine addition to the Night Vale universe, although it can also be enjoyed as a stand alone. Lots of plot twists and unexpected incidents as religion and science meet head on, and of course a whole bunch of the darkest humour too.

    Cecil Baldwin’s narrative is top notch as ever and he brings all the various characters to life with his dependable rock solid delivery.

    "Sublime weirdness. Great addition/starting point"

    As a long time listener of the podcast this is a great expansion, but easily works as an oak doorway into Night Vale.
    Great performance from Cecil, and a clever story weaving in some good touches.
    Joyfully I devoured

    "Good but first was better"

    Not quite as good as the first Nightvale novel. Perhaps it was too linear, too focused on it's central plot and we never got to luxuriate in all the fun weirdness of the setting. Still, Cecil Baldwin is excellent as always as the voice of Nightvale and the plot was still very good. It was nice to get into the world of Nightvale scientists and have Carlos as a central character. Not the best from Nightvale but still very good.

    "Perfect"

    Another wonderful addition from the World of WTNV. Cecil Baldwin is a fantastic voice artist and Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor are brilliant storytellers.

    Once again a fun and interesting listen that also raised some questions about society and the way of the world.
