Gods of The Nowhere: A Novel of HalloweenGods of The Nowhere: A Novel of Halloween by James Tipper
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love October not just because of Hallowe’en, but my birthday is also in October. The weather starts getting colder, and the darkness falls sooner. I am feeling nostalgic about this review because as I was perusing the internet, I found it, read it again, and I wanted to share it. If you like reading books, now is the time to indulge yourself in scary Hallowe’en novels. I think I have the perfect one for you. God’s of the Nowhere by James Tipper. It has become my favorite Hallowe’en book. I’m going to read it forever.

>spoiler alert<

Simon Magus is an evil Samarian druid and a false prophet who killed Sam’s parents when he was young but fails to kill the child. Father Doc, a rad Catholic priest, takes legal guardianship of the boy and vows to keep him safe and protected, but he knows things about him that Sam doesn’t, until on the night of his 18th birthday a neighbor had spotted a car parked in front of Sam’s house. It wasn’t just an ordinary car but a Roll’s Royce hearse. The car was a bad omen. The plates read: SAMZDED, and it was going to kill Father Doc too. Lucia is Sam’s best friend who lived across the street. Sam has always seen things like ‘a lady in the glass,’ a ‘crackling’ in his head that smelled like fire and smoke, a ‘stalking cat’ and ‘bird’ and other inexplicable phenomena but he doesn’t know why. Sam and Lucia believe the visions will only get worse if they don’t listen to the clues, which lead to an empty tomb on Halloween night. Facing the inevitable, they find themselves in a place beyond the living called Nowhere. There they face unspeakable horrors and meet a dead phantom called Lore, and a foul pumpkin called Jack’O’Lantern, a little witch called Hex, a Templar Knight, Jacques de Molay, who I found fascinating, and vampire leeches that want to eat them. Zombies are called Leeches who don’t drink blood for obvious reasons because there is no living blood to drink there, but they subsist on the promise of immortality and a herb called nightshade only grown in the soil of Hell. Eventually, Sam comes to know the lady in the glass also known as Clara or Tlachtga who appears in the Epilogue. She is the druid goddess who needs Sam’s help. Her father is Mog Ruith. Everyone in the Nowhere knew who Sam was but Sam. He was the last to learn the truth about himself and Halloween . He is SamHain the God of Halloween.
