Publisher's Summary

A sudden burst of radiation is detected beneath the desert in Iran. Alex Hunter – code name Arcadian – and his highly trained incursion team are dropped into the ruins of Persepolis. All they find is an empty underground facility – nothing to explain the gamma spike. It is as if a black hole has swept everything away....
Israel is threatening nuclear war. And someone, or something, is draining the fluids from the bodies of Iranian soldiers in the desert. If a black hole has taken everything, could something have come back? And then another radiation 'event' occurs. An ancient prophecy is unraveling.

Author flattens plot

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Rising to be better than the print version?

Have not read the print version.


Have you listened to any of Sean Mangan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Love Sean Mangan's work


Any additional comments?

Please, much as I like and have listen to the authors work, his comments at the start of the story gave away the basic plot line ! It's deflating knowing whats going to happen.

Please! No more author spoilers at the start of stories !

No Spark, No Excitement

Has Dark Rising turned you off from other books in this genre?

Absolutely not.


Any additional comments?

I have not finished the book, not sure if I will spend the time because there are some good books in my Library waiting for me. In my opinion, the author does not have strong writing skills, but his first book was exciting enough to forgive and forget the writing style. This book just does not deliver the excitement, but it might near the end...yet I am asking myself is slogging through the main body worth it?. I will definitely try the next installment, hoping for better.
