An involving story with many characters. Clive Barker is a good writer. In "Everville", he has many interesting characters that you can care about. However, Barker's moral ambiguity I find weakens his stories. Everville is a town founded by a woman who is ageless. An equally ageless wizard is her archenemy who is determined to destroy Everville before he destroys the world. Various characters come to the rescue. Some fail, some die, and one does triumph (sort of) at the end. This is more of a fantasy/horror novel than just a horror novel. Many of the plot twists didn't make sense to me. Still was a good read.

What a magnificent writer. How the hell does he come up with these ideas? These places? These names? Does he dream them? Does he have visions? Do they just come to him? Unreal.

I had never been a fan of the gore that is Clive Barker, but this one is not bad at all.
