Synopsis

Candle Man 2 The Society of Dread by Glenn Dakin

I am the Candle Man. I drive back darkness.

When Theo defeated his old guardian, Dr Saint, in a fierce, fiery battle, he thought his enemies were routed and the bad old days were over for good. But now the terrible slithering, seething creep are bubbling up from below ground to snatch people and harvest their bones. Deep beneath the city, an ancient force - one that could threaten even Theo the Candle Man's power - is getting ready to burn, burn, burn. Twisted, charred, faceless Dr Pyre has a plan, and a secret that will shock Theo to the core. Theo will have to descend once more into the dark, slimy tunnels to fight strange creatures and ally with old enemies. This is why the world needs a Candle Man. To do things that the law can't do. To go where the police would fail. To make alliances with the strange and wonderful beings that most humans have no idea exist. Can the Candle Man find a way in the dark this time? Evil melts like wax at the hands of the Candle Man.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
