9781841676036: The Dark Candle (Dark Man)

A girl needs help. She is ill, but the Dark Candle can give her the health she needs. Can the Dark Man find it?

Dark Man is a fiction series for older children and young adults who have a reading age of approximately 7 to 8. Each book features the character Dark Man, a shadowy, brooding loner who shuns society, living in the shadows. Recruited to play a part in a secret, cataclysmic struggle between good and evil, his continued mission is to seek out an artifact, a Golden Cup, which can channel limitless power and energy. Opposed to him, and also seeking to find this cup of power, is a sinister and corrupt organization, The Shadow Masters.

The book has a strong plot to engage the reader, however reluctant, and features dark evocative illustrations. The simple, carefully written text (around 1,000 words) focuses on the most common words, providing access for even the poorest readers. The series will reach an untapped market of older children and adults with low literacy levels.

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
