Crossover Cover: Drinking Midnight Wine
Toby Dexter, a mild-mannered bookshop assistant in Bradford-on-Avon, follows a beautiful and enigmatic woman named Gayle from Veritie, the real world, to Mysterie, the magical world, where he learns that he is a focal point, destined to play a major role in defeating Nicholas Hob, the Serpent’s Son and his ally, a fallen angel called simply Angel, who wish to raze both Veritie and Mysterie in order to allow Hob’s father, the Serpent in the Sun, to remake them in his own image. Toby’s shop sells the new English translation of the infamous Necronomicon and the Bruin Bear and the Sea Goat books. Jimmy Thunder, God for Hire, once had a case involving Count Dracula’s mandolin. The Necronomicon and Count Dracula need no introduction. The Bruin Bear and the Sea Goat books are from Green's novel Shadows Fall. Several individuals mentioned in this novel go on to appear in the Nightside series.
