Absolutely Fabulous!

By Miladysa, editor, author of Refuge of Delayed Souls

Dec 20, 2008: Read the synopsis for this completed novel and if it reads like your kind of thing than it will be.

Darkside is a tightly woven rip-roaring adventure which delivers right from the first chapter.

There is a whole host of well defined supernatural characters which include (amongst others) ghosts, vampires, demons, trolls, shape-shifters and sidhe.

The author’s style is wise cracking and yet rarely borders on hammy. I found the main character James Decker – despite his not being a vampire – reminiscent of Drew Daniel’s character James Damian of Winter’s Mercenary fame. If you are a fan of one of these stories you are bound to find the other equally enjoyable.

James Decker’s otherworld companions are so memorable that many of them could go on to have their own adventures. In fact, I am hoping that some of them will.

The site is easy to navigate and the text is in nice manageable chunks. My only criticism is that there is no comments section or any interaction with the author apart from the opportunity to send him an email.

Darkside is a rich, charming tale and to top it all off there’s a sequel!
