    Evil Rises – A review of the novel ‘Jack Slade: Hunter in the Darkness’ “He always smiles, even when contemplating nothing good.” – Henryk Sienkiewicz If you enjoy a high-octane, fast-paced adventure that combines metaphysics, action and the paranormal, then you’ll love the world of Jack Slade. The novel has plenty of philosophy and metaphysical elements in it and if you are a geek like me who enjoys such discourses then you will love this book. I actually like books that push the boundaries of what we know and what we don’t, and make us question life. The book does a fine job of providing bits and pieces of information about the characters’ back-story while also leading you along by peeling back the layers of the onion. The author has done a good job in showing the ancient history and the strife between Xelotle and Ex Balanque, and it provides a meaningful context to their modern day feud. And if you have read Richard Dawes' books before then you will run into a famous character from... More > his other books. It’s a short cameo, but it will provide some thrills for the fans. Jack Slade is an awesome protagonist. He is accomplished in so many different disciplines and avenues and yet remains grounded and isn’t one to show off his heroism. He is a great study into the archetypal masculinity that was once a staple of our films and books but is now disappearing from the modern world. In spite of being a ferocious fighter, he is a down to earth character and is someone you wouldn’t mind hanging out with. And he will always have your back if you get into trouble. As is a common denominator in all Richard Dawes’ books, this novel has plenty of action sequences. There are fights with thugs and demons, scenes involving both guns and martial arts. There’s even a car chase scene that is sure to raise your pulse. All this contributes to making this a real page turner. Hunter in the Darkness provides endless fun because the author takes the reader into a realm of marvel and wonder. There is never a dull moment in the story and it is filled with endless action. And as Elise says, “So much violence. So much bloodshed.” You're going to love it!< Less
