Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: It's Batman meets Heroes; A thrilling, Gothic adventure about one lonely orphan boy and the discovery of strange new powers. I am the Candle Man. I drive back darkness. When Theo defeated his old guardian, Dr Saint, in a fierce, fiery battle, he thought his enemies were routed and the bad old days were over for good. But now the terrible slithering, seething crelp are bubbling up from below ground to snatch people and harvest their bones. Deep beneath the city, an ancient force - one that could threaten even Theo the Candle Man's power - is getting ready to burn, burn, burn. Twisted, charred, faceless Dr Pyre has a plan, and a secret that will shock Theo to the core. Theo will have to descend once more into the dark, slimy tunnels to fight strange creatures and ally with old enemies. This is why the world needs a Candle Man. To do things that the law can't do. To go where the police would fail. To make alliances with the strange and wonderful beings that most humans have no idea exist. Evil melts like wax at the hands of the Candle Man. The Society of Dread is Glenn Dakin's second novel in the Candle Man series - the ideal fantasy thriller for fans of comic book heroes.
