Overview


When an ancient artifact dissolves in the hands of a man calling himself Mr. Veilleur, he knows something has gone wrong…terribly, cosmically wrong.

Dr. Roderick Hanley, Nobel Prize-winning geneticist, dies in a plane crash. His last words: “The boy! They’ll find out about the boy! He’ll find out about himself!” When Jim Stevens, an orphan and struggling writer, learns that he is the sole heir to the Hanley estate, he is sure he has at last found his biological father. But he’s only half right. The true nature of his inheritance—and the truth about his conception—will crush him.

In New York City a group of Charismatics has been drawn together—without invitation, simply showing up at a Murray Hill brownstone—with a sense of great purpose. Satan is coming, and they have been chosen to fight him.

Mr. Veilleur too has been drawn to the group, but he realizes it’s not Satan who is coming. Satan would be a suitable au pair compared to the ancient evil that is in the process of being Reborn.

Tor is reissuing the third title in the Adversary Cycle, The Touch, in July 2009.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.


A Nobel Prize-winning genetic researcher has died--now his vast fortune, Victorian mansion, and darkest secrets will be passed on to Jim Stevens. An orphan, Jim hopes the inheritance is a clue to his unknown origins. But his family and friends are plagued with apocalyptic warnings: "The Evil One is coming." And Jim's wife is about to give birth! Original. (Occult/Horror) Ctn Qty/50.

Editorial Reviews

EBOOK COMMENTARY

“[Reborn has] a brilliantly ghoulish finale.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Fast-paced, violent, provocative.”
Publishers Weekly on Reborn

“F. Paul Wilson is among the finest storytellers of our time.”
The Rocky Mountain News on The Barrens and Others

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In 1968 Jim Stevens is 26 years old, an aspiring writer with, it should be noted, hair on the palms of his hands. Adopted in infancy, he is now driven to locate his biological parents. When he inherits the estate of scientist Roderick Hanley, he rejoices, believing he has discovered the identity of his father. But in perusing Hanley's notebooks, Jim learns he was cloned from Hanley's cells in a secret wartime experiment. Literally, he has no parents. Feeling freakish, tormented--more so when his story becomes public--he becomes careless in his misery and dies in an accident. Days later his widow finds out she is pregnant, and is immediately plagued by a cult of religious fanatics accusing her of carrying the Anti-Christ, the child of a soulless man. As death and destruction dog her every step, she begins to believe their claims may be true. This accomplished thriller, the first in a projected trilogy, is a page-turner--fast-paced, violent, provocative. (May)

    Better, Better, Better, and the Best.

    First came the Keep, then the Tomb, then the Touch, and now Reborn. I absolutely loved this series and am devastated that it is now over. I hope there is another, and another, and another.............
