Dark powers and mysterious happenings lie at the heart of this story of an unnatural underworld and the secret societies within it. Never allowed to go out because of his special condition, Theo’s life is constricted to his home in Empire Hall and the three people who look after him, but a visit to a graveyard changes everything when he finds a strange parcel left for him. The sinister people Theo meets and the dangerous situations he finds himself in as he sets out on his journey to discover the truth about the Candle Man and himself is unravelled in a tense and gripping thriller.
Candle Man 1 The Society of Unrelenting Vigilance by Glenn Dakin
Evil melts like wax at the hands of the Candle Man.
Theo Wickland lives a life of isolation - he has only ever known three people: his butler, the maid and his guardian. He has always been told this is for his own good because he is dangerous to other people. Indeed, he wears gloves at all times and has daily, intensely painful treatment in the 'Mercy Tube'.
One birthday, during his annual trip to the graveyard, Theo finds a small package addressed to him. A secret message inside it, and a visit from two burglars that proves fatal to one of them, are the catalysts for Theo to discover his deadly powers and strange inheritance. He is the descendent of the Candle Man, a Victorian crime fighter with a dark side. One touch from him and criminals melt to death. Two societies are hunting for him: one that will protect and help him and one that wants to harness his power for evil. Can Theo escape his guardian's clutches, and stop his destructive plan? And will he learn how to deal with the sometimes terrifying and confusing real world? This is a thrilling, Gothic adventure that will have readers on the edge of their seats.
