Book Length: Novel
There is a lot of violent and gruesome scenes that may not be suitable for the faint of heart.
New York’s underworld quivers at the mention of his name. Evil courses through his veins like blood and his conscience has lain dormant for over a decade while he has slashed and burned his way to the top of the food chain. Vain.
The Dark Man, born of torment into an existence of death. In the underworld of killers he reigns supreme. And yet he is chosen for a task of supreme benevolence. Why would he be selected to save a young boy, the Avun-Riah, and then protect him against a horde of enemies, both mortal and demonic? Because he is the only one with any hope of success.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse have risen from the pits of Hell and, along with a fanatical army of cultists, are ranged against Vain. If the boy is slain then Sordarrah will be raised to destroy the Earth, a feat even Lucifer never managed.
Evil is being used to fight evil in the ultimate battle for the outcome of all existence. Armageddon sits upon the horizon and all that stands in its way is a man whose path has always been dark.
Vain is one of the most twisted characters I have ever read. I do not really think I would have given Dark Path a chance if I had not read the blurb and excerpt. This just drew me in from the very beginning. It is just something you cannot put it down once you start reading Dark Path.
At first glance, Vain is just an ordinary hit man who is very cruel man. However, the more you read; Luke Romyn lets readers into what makes man into this killing machine with no emotions. This page-turner novel just gets me more and more addicted. The storyline is so unique that readers will not find anything remotely similar. This goes beyond one man's struggle to the road of redemption. We get to see behind scenes of more than the character of Vain. Dark Path just got under my skin. As hard as tried to stop reading Dark Path, I became like a woman obsessed until I finished the book.
In Dark Path, Vain is not the only character worth mentioning. We get to the forces of evil from the reigning queen of hell Lucifer, the archangel, Gabriel and the one boy whose life Vain has sworn to protect, Sebastian.
There is plenty of more I can say about Dark Path, but readers will have to discover what makes this one amazing novel. Even with all the violence scenes, I absolutely loved reading Dark Path!
I give Dark Path by Luke Romyn a rating of 5 Stars
