About the Author

S.K.S. Perry is a Sgt currently serving in his 33rd year in the Canadian Forces. Steve doesn't like violence; he's just really good at. He has a lovely wife, two great kids, and a house full of teddy bears that totally put lie to his tough guy image. When no one is looking he's also a drummer in a rock band, and holds black belts in seven different martial arts. His plan is to one day be independently wealthy, or even dependently wealthy--he doesn't really care whose money it is as long as they let him spend it. He has written 5 books to date and plans to write more, unless someone pays him enough to stop.

This is a fun adventure loaded with laughs and page-turning action. Did I mention the sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek humor? The swashbuckling swash and buckle? Great entertainment. This listing is by the REAL author, so if this book sounds interesting, give this one a try and ignore the other listing.

DARKSIDE by SKS Perry is a wonderful book. Perry has written a bright and funny fantasy, full of sharp witty dialogue and characters I found likeable and endearing. This book has heart and deserves a much wider audience.

Urban fantasy fans, readers who enjoy a good paranormal love story, and those who like a blend of humor and adventure will all find what they're looking for in DARKSIDE.

Rarely has a book made me laugh so much and care about the characters as deeply as DARKSIDE. Buy this book and then go buy the sequel. You won't be sorry. Darkside

This book is probably the best book that no one has ever heard of. I have read it at least 5 times, along with the second book in the series, Darkside: Waking the Dead. In fact, I liked this book so much, I wrote the author, something I never do, because why would the author care what I think?? But we had an email exchange that I have kept. What a great guy!! But back to the book...
Hilarious! Witty! Frightening! One of a kind! The concept of becoming immortal or dead, and then to go on living as a type of regular guy hero is just fascinating to me. The style with which it is written is beyond anything I have read prior to this or after. In fact, I just keep crossing my fingers that Mr. Perry will keep the series going.
If you are bored with sci fi, fantasy, and vampires all in their same formats - then put them all together in a witty, wacky, crazy, intelligent way with this book. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. Enjoy the ride!!!

Darkside

Overall Feedback: Perry delivers and absolutely hilarious paranormal/urban fantasy/adventure all rolled into one. This is a non stop page-turning, rip-roaring adventure that begs for your attention and takes you into the perfect fantasy. Go ahead and take the chance. No regrets here I promise.

Point of View: Perry does great with showing you the world he created from Decker's side.

Voice: The humor is what will keep you going. The paranormal will keep you thinking. The adventure will stop your breathing.

Character Development: Spot on as you wander/adventure through half death (my words) with Decker.

Plot: Perry paints a world that you know has to exist. Or at least like to believe it exists.

Dialogue: Top notch and flowing. Really adds to the storyline and character development.

Pacing: Non stop, heart pumping and amazing.

Setting: Perry does very well to describe a place no one has been but able to make it a reality in our minds and make it seem familiar.

Continuity: Perry is obvious in wanting this to be a series (my opinion) but he gives enough to make this stand on it's own.

Are you into hard scifi, feminist fantasy or gritty grimdark? Move along, this is not for you.

But if you are looking for a fun read, with plenty of action and jokes that range from really funny to Dad-joke groans, then keep reading. In a nutshell, this story is like if Xander from the Buffyverse was 35yo but had never really grown up, and was unexpectedly thrust centrestage with superpowers. James Decker is ordinary dude who gets to live a James Bond-esque fantasy with a paranormal twist, and occasional poignant moments.

This is a self-published effort, but the quality is excellent. The book has clearly been subject to a rigorous editing process and the writing is on par with or better than comparable books you'd find on offer from major publishers. Somewhat in the vein of Jim Butcher but with a more YA tone, despite the age of the protagonist. Indeed, this is probably the kind of book that should be on the YA shelves for male readers and is probably not a bad choice if you know a teen boy who finds his current choices overwhelmed by girly vampire fantasies, but is not really ready to move to the very dark offerings you find these days on the adult fantasy shelves.

Darkside isn't that dark, really. In fact, the novel, if not exactly light, is quite witty, fast-paced, and seriously genre-bending. The story is about a guy named James Decker who dies in the process of saving a young woman from being attacked. But he finds that he really isn't dead...well, sort of.

From the blurb:
Haunted by the ghosts of his father and grandfather, [James Decker] learns that the woman he rescued is in fact an Innocent, the physical embodiment of hope. As it turns out, seeing dead people is the least of James' worries. It's the trolls, goblins, vampires, and other assorted creepy-crawlies that make being dead a living nightmare.

Turns out Darkside is what all these dark creatures living in the Otherworld call our reality. And that's just one of the rules of the afterlife James has to learn as he finds a new lease on life protecting the Innocent from further harm. With wry humor and snide first person remarks, Perry transports you from one realm to the other and back again in a quest you'll not likely forget - if you don't die laughing first. A bit slow in the middle, but overall, a solid debut novel.
