Book Description

When stage magic isn't what it seems, Jason Dark turns to an old friend for help. Explore the shadows of the Victorian Theater with London's most famous Geisterjäger as he confronts a horror beyond anything yet confronted.

"Theater of Vampires" is a story of betrayal, discovery, and horror in the tradition of the Grand Guignol. The only admission price needed is your courage.

This is the second volume in a series of gothic horror adventures where Jason Dark, a fearless and resourceful ghost hunter, follows in the mold of a Sherlock Holmes combined with Randall Garrett's Lord D'Arcy. Written by Guido Henkel, the designer who brought Germany's famed "Das Schwarze Auge" series to computer screens, this series is filled with enough mystery, drama and suspenseful action to transport you to the sinister, fog-shrouded streets of Victorian England.

Your encounter with the extraordinary awaits.

    "What amazed me, as I dug deeper into the series is the sheer, joyous brilliance of the project" --Mirek Lipinski, FANTATERROR

    3.0 out of 5 stars Theater of Vampires June 16, 2010
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Jason Dark and his friends Max and Siu Lin come face to face with a coven of bloodthirsty vampires posing as an innocent theater group. Dark must use his keen wit and resourcefulness to destroy the creatures before they bleed London dry! Theater of Vampires marks the second volume in the JASON DARK: GHOST HUNTER series by Independent Horror writer Guido Henkel. The story picks up shortly following the events of the previous adventure, with Siu Lin now living and training under Dark's household. Henkel has created his own larger than life hero in Jason Dark, a Sherlock Holmes of sorts that must use his smarts over his brawn to defeat his enemies. His writing style is fast-paced and clearly directed, maintaining a steady stream of action and suspense as the three characters attempt to oust their undead adversaries. Avid readers will catch the quick cameos by familiar characters from outside of the Dark universe, and each of the groups are given a rich history in the short amount of pages. Theater of Vampires is a brisk but satisfying read that leaves the reader begging for more. Luckily, it is just one in an ever-expanding series, with new volumes due out shortly!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Supernatural Mystery With A Bite!! February 8, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    In this day and age, it can sometimes be hard to sit down and read a novel. With kids, work, and other day to day activities I start reading a book, but either never finish it or when I try and pick up where I left off, too much time has passed to remember all of those details that make a good story great. Flipping through a magazine one day (still have time for I noticed a review for "Jason Dark: Theater Of Vampires". Besides the glowing review about a vampire hunter named Jason Dark, the idea of a dime novel really appealed to me. Why hadn't I thought of that route? I head to Amazon and read more reviews - all of them are very positive. Given the $2.99 price point (cheaper than the magazines I pick up from time to time) I decided to give this Jason Dark a chance.

    A quirk of mine has always been to start a series at the beginning. Though "Theater Of Vampires" is the second volume in the Jason Dark series, I found out that you don't need to read the first story ("Demon Knight") to enjoy the second. Each novel seems to stand on its own. I open the book and right off the bat am thrust into a man's living nightmare. The thought of waking up in such a vulnerable way was described to perfection. It was like a great opening scene for a movie and certainly set the tone for this supernatural mystery. The great writing develops Jason Dark into a character I want to follow. I can't wait to get another book in this series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A hard book to put down! November 2, 2010
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I loved this book it was so hard to put down, I hadn't read any other books by this author but I loved this book. I am already addicted and can't wait to read more!

    This book takes you to meet even Dr. Watson and others, being a lover of most books I was giddy as a schoolgirl when I read this. All I could think is, Oh my goodness! it's Dr Watson...and he wants Jason Dark to meet his associate who you and I both know is going to be Sherlock Holmes! I just couldn't get enough! I highly recommend you give this author a try. This book is a fantastic read!

    This is the second Jason Dark book I've read and I gotta say, they're both awesome!

    Great characters, very descriptive and great fun to read.

    I love the nod to characters from other literary masterpieces.

    Guido if you read these, keep 'em coming.
