Description

From author Jon Land and creator Fabrizio Boccardi comes Dark Light: Dawn, a heart-pounding supernatural thriller about a deadly, global epidemic and the man who holds the power to either save the world or destroy it.

Since the dawn of time good and evil have challenged the free will of man. Now the time has come for one man to choose for all human kind.

With an uncanny ability to survive any combat situation, Max Younger has built a heroic life for himself as a Navy SEAL. That is, until a rogue rescue operation plunges him back into a past he thought he’d escaped forever.

Waiting for him back home in New York are terrible, long-hidden truths rooted in the tragic death of his father. But the origin of those truths lie even further back than that, and Max finds himself ensnared in a sinister plot involving nothing less than the biblical apocalypse.

The explosive conflagration of events reunites him with the only woman he ever loved: Victoria Tanoury a brilliant infectious disease specialist working for the World Health Organization, who’s on the front lines in a battle to stop the spread of a deadly pestilence threatening the planet. Max’s reunion with Vicky comes amid a combat mission, in which their dual quests merge in a desperate fight for survival against forces of unspeakable evil.

Across the globe, inexplicably diabolic events are rising, sparked by a fearsome plan to visit the End of Days upon civilization in horrific form, as the lines between science and superstition become increasingly blurred. Max finds himself mired in a titanic struggle within his own soul, between love and hate, unsure whether his ultimate fate is to help fight the evil. . . or embrace it in the shadow of the Dawn of a Dark Light.



Praise For Dark Light: Dawn: A Novel

“A fantastic, incredible, can’t-put-it-down book . . . Dark Light: Dawn is a rip-roaring story grounded in science, but taking the reader on a terrifying whirl through the Apocalypse, the struggle between good and evil, pestilence and the End of Days. If you like my books, or Michael Crichton's, or similar science-based thrillers, then this is the book for you. A terrific read!” —Douglas Preston,#1 New York Times bestselling author

"Has everything -- mystery, action, sex, violence, widescreen apocalypse and close-up chills, along with the creepiest little girl you'll never want to meet. 'I couldn't put it down' has become such a cliche but... I couldn't put it down.” —Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author

“A complex labyrinth of mystery and suspense. Strategically plotted, complete with convoluted twists and turns, all leading up to a cataclysmic ending that will shock you. A rollercoast ride of epic proportions!” —TopShelf Magazine

"Combining the supernatural conspiracies ofThe X-Files with the pandemic panic of Contagion and World War Z, Dark Light Dawn is an addicting, intense, nail-biting big budget summer movie brought to the page by creator Fabrizio Boccardi and author Jon Land. Hopefully, we’ll see the return of Max Younger sooner than later." —Forces of Geek Magazine
