Publisher's Summary

Night Vale is a small desert town where all the conspiracy theories you've ever heard are actually true. It is here that the lives of two women, with two mysteries, will converge.
Nineteen-year-old Night Vale pawn shop owner Jackie Fierro is given a paper marked 'KING CITY' by a mysterious man in a tan jacket. She can't seem to get the paper to leave her hand, and no one who meets this man can remember anything about him. Jackie is determined to uncover the mystery of King City before she herself unravels.
Diane Crayton's son, Josh, is moody and also a shape-shifter. And lately Diane's started to see her son's father everywhere she goes, looking the same as the day he left years earlier. Josh, looking different every time Diane sees him, shows a stronger and stronger interest in his estranged father, leading to a disaster Diane can see coming, even as she is helpless to prevent it.
Diane's search to reconnect with her son and Jackie's search for her former routine life collide as they find themselves coming back to two words: 'KING CITY'. It is King City that holds the key to both of their mysteries and their futures...if they can ever find it.

For the fans really

If you already love Nightvale then you will love this as a hugely extended episode. If you don't already love Nightvale then you will be confused and possibly angry. It's very, very surreal and does assume your previous knowledge and acceptance of, for instance, faceless old women who secretly live in your home, dog parks, sentient houses, and angels (who don't exist).

It's funny and weird and charming and disturbing as ever. If you're not already fully immersed in the world of Nightvale I would suggest you go and listen to a few of the podcasts and, if you like them, listen to all of them and then listen to this. If you dislike the first episode of Nightvale, then stop listening imediately and do not buy this book.

To be honest, the plot of the story is almost irrelevant to the world building and atmosphere so it loses a star from me.

Cecil Baldwin is obviously brilliant and no one else would be an acceptable narrator.

Oh, and Steve Carlsberg isn't such a bad guy, whatever Cecil says.

Good, but slow at times.

A good story if you're into Night Vale as a show, but it does take quite a while to get going. Once it found a decent pace I was hooked.
