14-year-old Jonathan Starling can't remember his mother and is neglected by his father, who spends most of his time locked in his study. After his dad is hospitalized for one of his frequent illnesses, Jonathan gains access to his study, where he learns about the existence of Darkside: an underground London ruled by monsters, vampires, and the children of Jack the Ripper. Soon Jonathan realizes he must enter Darkside to save his father, and his daring adventures begin. Performer Colin Moody narrates this imaginative, action-packed dark fantasy novel with sensitivity and distinction.
