From the authors of the New York Times bestselling novel Welcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international 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.… (more)

This book, like the world of Night Vale itself, is an amazing journey. You'll get swept up in the adventure and plot and won't want to put it down. And you'll go through so many emotions on this journey - but that's the mark of an amazing book, where you can go from the rush of figuring out the answer to elation to sobbing because you relate, to finishing, to understanding, and finally, acceptance.

What a stellar read. ( )

I'm just going to leave you with my favourite quote from this book. A quote that made me pause for a long time processing how it changed my perspective in immeasurable ways.

"We all have many things we would have been good at, but we can only be what we end up being." ( )

2017 Fall, audiobook:

I always, always, always pick up the newest Night Vale books, because I always, always, always am keeping up with the constant rollercoaster that is Night Vale. I love this world, and I love what ended up happening this story as well. It's not as full circle as finally answering who The Man in Deer Skin Jacket was, but it's definitely a good story about love and science.

The ending was a little bittersweet, but in that I found this book even more realistic to the nature of people even in this strange, little town, where the lights blink over the Arby's and giant centipedes devour you from within. ( )

It's Nightvale, it's the best thing ever, I'm super biased and I love it.

Read it twice because it brings me joy. Was really glad to catch up with some of the characters from the previous novel. ( )

Someone once told me that if I enjoyed the "John Dies At The End" series, then I would love Welcome To Night Vale. They were so right!

This books was great. Night Vale is such a mess, but in the best way. You just want to see what's going to happen next. And everything that happens is more insane and convoluted than the last thing.

This was all about the Smiling God, the other world that Carlos was once trapped in for 10 years, and oddly, Carlos losing his shit.

I loved everything about this. I listened to the audiobook as I read, and of course Cecil did an amazing job narrating. ( )
