About the Author

Luke Romyn was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1975. His life since reads like something out of his novels: heavily entrenched in personal trauma, action, thrills, and adventure.

For over two decades, Luke has worked in the security industry; from bouncing in some of Australia's roughest pubs and nightclubs to protecting Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew from the overzealous jaws of tenacious toddlers. He's been bodyguard for celebrities internationally and chased feral pigs and snakes from jungle sets on Steven Spielberg productions. Luke has traveled the globe and spent time in some of the most amazing locations the world has to offer.

This experience fuels the Australian writer's ever-expansive imagination, and he pours it into his novels, combining fact with fiction, history with fantasy, delivering engrossing action-thrillers which leave fans gasping for more. Luke's quick wit has seen his social media following explode, and he is currently one of the most prolific social media celebrities in Australia, with several hundred thousand followers across the internet.

Publishing his first book, The Dark Path, in 2009 saw it voted in the top 10 horror novels of that year, even though Luke denies ever intending the novel to be classed as horror. Luke Romyn is now one of the most popular indie authors in the ever-growing eBook market and personally completes everything from cover art to final formatting, working tirelessly with editors so as to refine the best stories possible for his readers. The results are international bestsellers you're certain to love diving into. Hundreds of thousands of readers can't be wrong.

More About the Author


USA TODAY BEST SELLING AUTHOR!

AUTHOR RANKED TOP 10 IN ACTION ADVENTURE ON AMAZON!

A terrifying storm lashed Sydney's North Shore on June 21st, 1975. Boats were swamped and jetties smashed in what some claim was the worst storm to hit the coast for four decades.

In the midst of the chaos, Luke Romyn's parents battled to get to a hospital to birth their baby boy. Normally their idyllic island cottage was a near-paradise; on this night the journey to the mainland in their tiny boat seemed like a passage through Hell. Their son was born near midnight, but part of the storm never left him.

When Luke reached fifteen years of age his father was killed while working in Fiji, leaving Luke and his mother alone. At times, the only things to get Luke through his grief were the stories playing out in his head, endless fantastical tales of lands both distant and near, with characters who would protect him from any tragedy.

At eighteen, Luke began working in nightclubs as a bouncer. Unbeknownst to him, this was simply the first step on a trek which would dictate much of his life from that point on. For over two decades since, Luke has worked in the security industry; from bouncing in some of Australia's roughest pubs and nightclubs to protecting Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew from the overzealous jaws of tenacious toddlers. He's been bodyguard for celebrities internationally and chased feral pigs and snakes from jungle sets on Steven Spielberg productions.

A little unrealistic and the ending was too simple.

First of all, it's a stand alone book, not related to The Dark Path, Luke Romyn's other book.

The beginning is a little bit annoying (to me) with all the flashbacks, but keep reading, it's action non stop after that !

Mike Swanson, the hero, is a criminal, the kind that goes after other criminals who are free instead of being in prison. One day he's caught by the police and he thinks that it's the end for him... Actually it's not, he's recruited to be part of a super secret unit who works for the Government.

From that moment, the book becomes a real page-turner, it was very difficult to put it down. As I said, there's a lot of action, but you also have to guess who the good guys are and who the bad ones are almost til the end.

The writing is very good and also very funny.

I have to say that my favorite character is Benny the weirdo (as I call him), he is a real scene stealer. I'm not gonna say anything more about him, you'll have to understand why by yourself...

This book has a lot of good reviews. I suspect they are mostly for the political orientation of the book than the book itself.

This is an excerpt that will tell you all you need to know about the political leanings of the book.

"reports lead us to believe Samuels has various unknown associates positioned high within the American media. We believe they would release the story, complete with evidence of our involvement in the attacks on the World Trade Center, were it ever discovered America had Samuels killed."

It is just not even remotely believable that an action the size of 9/11 could have been carried out by the US government and kept secret this long.

The book starts out with a vigilante killer - Mike Swanson - who is the "hero" of the story. He apparently became a remorseless murderer due to being abused as a child.

He tries to commit suicide at school but is saved by the janitor who takes him in and teaches him to box. He becomes a pro fighter eventually, but never really gets past his abusive childhood.

Later Mike becomes a bouncer.

The cops figure out he is the vigilante killer and take him into custody but a secret government agent comes in to the police station, overpowers all the cops and takes him away to be trained as an assassin for the government.

It gets worse - less and less believable as the book goes on.

I just gave up on it at location 2154 of 7117 when I encountered the startling revelation about who was actually responsible for 9/11. It is just not worth wasting anymore of my time on this kind of book.

As other reviewers have mentioned it is non-stop action. However, be prepared to suspend all belief in what is and is not possible or probable from page one. I was constantly groaning "you've got to be kidding me" everytime the main character got out of a tight spot due to exactly the right weapon/vehicle/person appearing at exactly the right time, incredibly intelligent people becoming less so at just the right moment, holes in walls and secret tunnels providentially being available right when it's needed. It became laughably predictable. An F-117 with a real life range of about 1100 miles somehow flying from Libya to China without any indication of refueling then flying at high speed through tight tunnels? Chinese scouts investigating an aircraft wreck just happen to be carrying claymore mines? Really? That is a very, very small sample of the many improbable happenings in this book, I seriously could go on and on and on. Where reality or logic couldn't keep the story going, the author simply introduced something that would. I am just glad I did not spend any money on this. I am used to suspending belief while reading many different genres but this was ridiculous. Like my title says - deus ex machina gone wild.

I read Luke Romyn's The Dark Path first.

So I knew I'd get a great gritty adrenalin pumped read.

I was initially surprised by the reality of this story, the nasty reality which shaped the character/s.

Luke takes you deep to mingle with characters who are colourful, uniquely and extraordinarily skilled, who are mostly abhorrent but sometimes quite lovable.

This story is one that will have you wanting to feel the burn of the workout because the character does.
(well it did me I had to pause the story and start working out)

You'll feel as if you're running, flying, fighting, screaming and laughing maniacally alongside these amazing people.
You will fear the madness, cringe in battle and ROFL at the humour that is so Luke Romyn.

Not to mention the toys! There's some mean machines in this book! Trust Me, You will be wishing you could drive!

A relevant setting that really makes you think and then realise we have no idea of what is truly going on in our world.

An exceptional read, with some of the best characters I've ever met!

Get down, get gritty, get Blacklisted, see if you make the cut.

Thanks Luke!

Just like his other book, The Dark Path, Luke has once again produced an amazing story. Loved the story line and I love how unpredictable it was. I never knew what was going to happen from one page to the next. Action packed with some very well placed wit throughout. This is definitely a must read.
