The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a dark thriller set in a subterranean world of extraordinary creatures, deranged villains and incredible powers. Utterly compelling readers will at once be drawn into the story, meet extraordinary people and creatures and be gripped through to the final page. It will linger too, long after you've finished it.

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.
