The Dark Candle

The Dark Candle

by Peter Lancett and Jan Pedroietta

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/01/2011

 
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 Candle can give people anything they truly need. Now it is the only thing that can save a sick girl. The Dark Man must take her to find the candle, but the Shadow Masters seek it too.
