Introduction by bestselling author Mike Carey (Felix Castor novels/Lucifer/X-Men)
Fear of the dark. Itâ€™s one of the most common phobias, especially when weâ€™re growing up. For teenager Lee Masterton, his deepest childhood fears are about to become a reality â€“ because not only will he discover that the things living in the darkness are real, he will also find himself in the middle of a war between them and the forces of light. Set against the normal, everyday backdrop of a council estate, the future of humanity will be decided by the outcome of these events.
As Leeâ€™s family and his friends are threatened, he must face up to and conquer his terrors. Because Lee has a very special destiny, and his fate and that of the worldâ€™s is soon to be dangerously linked…Â From the imagination of award-winning author Paul Kane (Touching the Flame, The Lazarus Condition, The Hellraiser Films And Their Legacy, Arrowhead, RED) comes a short novel that will make you re-evaluate both the darkness and the light. And everything in-between. Unique in its perspective, by the time you have read this powerful tale you will no longer be the same.
Are you afraid of the dark? No? You will be.
