The Dark Trap Dark Man Plays by Peter Lancett


The Dark Trap Dark Man Plays by Peter Lancett

The Dark Trap is part of an award-winning fiction series for young adults with a reading age as low as 5-7. Each book features Dark Man, a shadowy, brooding loner who has been recruited to play a part in a secret, cataclysmic struggle between good and evil. The Dark Man seeks a magic stone. It will give him great power. He will need this power. He will need it in his fight against the Shadow Masters and their demons. Following on from the shorter stories of the first twelve titles, the new books offer the perfect 'next step up' with stories of around 1000 words. Written at much the same level of difficulty, the stories entice readers by delving that bit deeper into the Dark Man mythology. The simple, carefully written texts focus on the 200 key high frequency words, and to assist the reader they are left justified throughout and printed in a clear, legible font on off-white paper (ideal for dyslexic readers).
