Bookaday: Terrorlord by Guido Henkel

Terrorlord (Jason Dark - Ghost Hunter) Vol. 9Terrorlord (Jason Dark: Ghost Hunter) Vol. 9 - Supernatural Mystery

Synopsis: Conjured from the bowels of the abyss by ancient magic, the Terrorlord has one desire — to open the Seven Gates of Hell and unleash the horrors of the undead upon mankind.

Reliving the nightmares of his youth where an encounter with the Terrorlord left him scarred for life, Jason Dark must once again confront the powerful gatekeeper from Hell before his reach and power spiral out of control. With the help of Siu Lin, the ghost hunter will have to put an end to the Terrorlord's dark reign before he can devour our world in his evil blackness.

This is the ninth volume in a series of gothic horror adventures where Jason Dark, a fearless and resourceful ghost hunter, follows in the mold of a Sherlock Holmes combined with Randall Garrett's Lord D'Arcy. Written by Guido Henkel, the designer who brought Germany's famed "Das Schwarze Auge" series to computer screens, this series is filled with enough mystery, drama and suspenseful action to transport you to the sinister, fogshrouded streets of Victorian England. Your encounter with the extraordinary awaits.

Author Info:
With the “Jason Dark” series I tried to bring back to life the kind of dime novels I grew up with. As a child I would spend hours digging through the supernatural mysteries of some of my favorite series, as a new soft-bound 64-page volume would appear on newsstands every week. Times have certainly changed since then and the furious action-packed read that dime novels provided were mostly forgotten, but my love for gothic horror and the supernatural was still unbroken even after so many years.

When I first conceived the “Jason Dark” series I wanted to create something that not only paid proper homage to the traditional dime novels of my youth but also something that catered to today’s audiences. The result, I think, is a fascinating dive into a different world that is short enough to be read in an afternoon yet filled with so much action and supernatural mystery that it would be impossible to escape its charm. I sincerely hope I have succeeded, but I will let you be the judge.

This story, “Demon’s Night” was the first one I wrote for the series. It is designed to set up the characters and establish the world for the series while defining the tone and style for the entire series. It was a very enjoyable journey for me to create the characters, knowing full well that they would go on a long journey to come.
