    A Great Start to the Series!

    I was really impressed with this novella and am excited to read all of Guido¿s work after having read this first installment in the Jason Dark series. Guido is a fabulous writer, and this novella is like a Sherlock Holmes story intertwined with paranormal elements and demon activity.

    Guido doesn¿t waste any time with preliminary information, but rather jumps right into the action of the story, making it the reader¿s job to keep up. While the reader isn¿t given any background information concerning who exactly Jason Dark is, or where he hails from, it becomes quickly apparent that Dark is a kick butt character intent on saving others and ridding the world of evil demons, one at a time. I liked the idea that Dark isn¿t completely known to us either as Guido presented him in a rather shrouded light, creating even more elements of gothic mystery as the story unfolds.

    I especially enjoyed the multiple perspectives of this story as Guido shifts between Jason and the demon he is in pursuit of, giving the reader more glimpses into the story to aid the plot along. I haven¿t yet pinpointed the time period of this series, as I¿ve only read this first piece, but I¿m thinking it¿s sometime in the early 1900s based on the carriages and other context clues Guido adds to his story, and that is a time period I vastly enjoy! Four stars.

    Great gothic atmosphere in a mystery that blends old-school chills with white-knuckle action

    The following is an excerpt from a review featured at the strangeamusements blog:

    Above all things, this debut succeeds at creating a gothic atmosphere that settles upon the reader like the ominous fog of its pages (or screens in the digital era). And while this is true, this does not imply that the horror story that unfolds is something old-fashioned like its environment. In fact, the action is fast-paced and frequent, containing some frenetic kung fu fight scenes and thrilling chase scenes that would stand up with the action level of a John Woo film.

    Overall, Demon's Night transports you into an old world full of gothic atmosphere and old-style horror. Blending elements of mystery and white-knuckle action with this traditional environment, Guido Henkel arrives with something of his own brand of horror, a brand informed by appreciation and integration of widely divergent influences. Horror fans looking for a fun read for Halloween night (or any night really) would find a lot of satisfaction in this first tale of many in the Jason Dark supernatural mystery series.

    Review for Rachel's Book Reviews

    Jason Dark
    By Guido Henkel
    "A series of bizarre deaths leaves the victims unnaturally desiccated and decaying, sending Jason Dark into the dangerous world of the London dockyards in search of a supernatural murderer. But is the paranormal investigator prepared to duel a full-fledged demon on a Hell-bent mission to create chaos and catastrophe throughout the earth, a fiend determined to wreak more death and destruction than his even more ominous Master?

    This is the first volume a series of gothic horror adventures where Jason Dark, a fearless and resourceful ghost hunter, sets out to solve a supernatural mystery. Doing so he follows in the mold of a Sherlock Holmes combined with elements of the occult and paranormal detective genre."
    I loved it. Think Sherlock Holmes, but paranormal. A lot of reviewers say this, but I feel it suits it well. Same era. I love these because they are short reads, but paranormal and interesting. They are like Nancy Drews, you don't have to read them in a particular order, they are just fun. I can't wait to read more! It's a definite Halloween Haunt! Perfect for this time of year.

    It was a good short story

    I enjoyed this story, but I felt it was too short. I think this story could have benefited from some background on the main character. Other than that it was great.

    Awesome story-get this now!

    I read this book and loved it. Jason Dark is great. The story is great and the settings of Victorian England are well described. The story builds and builds and keeps you reading to find out what will happen next. It was very entertaining. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves this genre. Those who dont read this genre should give it a try; they wont be disspointed.

    Horror That's Fun Again...

    A friend recommended the Jason Dark series to me. When he described the plots of a couple of the books, I thought I'd give it a try. "Demon's Night" is the first in the series and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed what I read. A pleasant, fun mix of Sherlock Holmes, kung-fu action and the old Hammer horror films, Jason Dark's inaugural supernatural mystery is a welcome return to horror that's literate, sophisticated and just plain entertaining.

    Horror without the nightmares...

    Horror is a genre usually way outside my comfort zone, but the author assured me that his Gothic horror stories are more about the atmosphere and mood rather than violence or gore. And he's right. The writing is evocative and draws you in. I was right there alongside Jason Dark on those fog-shrouded cobbled streets, wondering when and where the green mist would appear next. A fast-paced and entertaining supernatural mystery. Recommended for those who enjoy their horror without the nightmares.
