Left to his own devices and forced to look after his younger sister by their drug addicted mother. Will Burgess is also in love with Mia, whose boyfriend is the school bully. Things can only get worse when a serial killer escapes prison and seems to be on a direct route to Will’s town and an urban legend about the Children that inhabit the surrounding forest turn out to be anything but a legend.
Jonathan Janz is not an author I had heard of, but I will definataly read again. Children of the Dark is a very good, easy to read fantasy to read thriller. It is exciting, very imaginative and well written.
