On the Darkside
22 September 2008Add to My Folder
What would you do if you discovered a secret sinister world lurking in your neighbourhood…?
Tom Becker’s award-winning Darkside (Scholastic, £6.99 PB) introduces a mysterious other world hidden within contemporary London. This secret parallel world, Darkside, is a strange and often cruel place, where children, Ricky and Jonathan, encounter all sorts of devilsome villains.
Darkside skillfully combines gothic horror with other-world fantasy that will no doubt entice readers into the spine-tingling plot – although some of the violence may not be appropriate for younger children.
