Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{January 12, 2012}   {Review} Terrorlord by Guido Henkel (Jason Dark-Ghost Hunter #9)

From Goodreads: 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.


Although the ninth book in the series, this is the first in depth look into Jason Dark’s background.  We learn about his father and how Dark originally was introduced to ghost hunting and the like.  I really liked that Jason is vulnerable in this novella.  He is affected by his past in a way he never expected to be affected again, making him a character who needs to be saved in this novella.  Because of this, Siu Lin, Dark’s sidekick, has much more up front involvement and I really enjoyed seeing much more of her.  H.G. Wells is also back in this novella and it was a very nice change to see the more minor characters take on a bigger role, especially as Siu Lin is such a kick butt heroine.  Four stars.

I received a copy of thei novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
