''[[http://homework.never-ends.net/newnight/ New Night]]'' is Fiona van Dahl's second novel, released through Amazon Kindle under [[ScienceFiction 'science fiction']] and '{{thriller}}'. It is a (stand-alone) sequel to her scifi/horror novel ''[[Literature/EdenGreen Eden Green]]''; therefore, assume ''New Night'' (and this entire page) '''spoils the ending of ''Eden Green'''''. The author has also released a free online serial, ''[[Literature/CityOnTheEdgeOfNowhere City on the Edge of Nowhere]],'' to bridge the gap between the books.
