About the Author:

Peter Lancett is a recognized author for adults and older children. Following a long spell living in New Zealand, Peter returned to England to pursue his successful writing career.

From Booklist:

The Dark Man series, a British import whose first set was picked up by Stone Arch, continues in this paperback edition. The story follows, you guessed it, the Dark Man: a skulking, trench-coated loner fighting the evil Shadow Masters, who employ demons in their quest to enslave the city. The first book in the set offers little in the way of plot—there’s a girl, an unspecified power, a nebulous threat—but sets up the murky, ominous mood. Sparse in text (the opening chapter has six sentences), it is crafted for the most reluctant of readers and uses simple declarations: “He must take her to the Old Man.” It’s all very anonymous and feels like the opening stage of a video game—and if that doesn’t reel in the audience, what will? Pedroietta’s heavy metal–style pencil art is great with the Lovecraftian monsters, though his humans tend to be collections of sharp hairdos, cheekbones, veins, and (for the females) midriffs. The subsequent five books up the action quotient, but mystery remains the series’ chief appeal. Grades 3-6. --Daniel Kraus

Book Description Saddleback Educational Publishing, Inc., United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Jan Pedroietta (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. Themes: Hi-Lo, Good vs. evil, comic format, graphic novel. The first six titles in the Dark Man series are 36-page books designed for young adult struggling readers and even nonreaders who probably have never successfully managed to read a book. The second six titles are 48-page books with a slight degree of progression over the first six and offering a more challenging read. Our six newest 48-page titles (Yellow Series) continue the Dark Man s quest to destroy the evil Shadow Masters. The story text is short and simple but not patronizing. Stories are gritty, full of tension and mystery. The language is terse. The Dark Man is a serious comic Hero with his own methodology. Each book is a self-contained story, but each story is a part of a greater whole. Although each novel reveals a little more about Dark Man, the twelve books can be read in any order: no one story depends on having read another first. The first six stories (Orange) range from 220-420 words. The Green and Yellow Series are 1000 words each. The Dark Man is weary. But the Old Man tells him that he cannot rest because the Shadow Masters will never stop until they find the Golden Cup. Seller Inventory # FLT9781616510176
