In The Dark Words the Dark Man must once again pit his powers against the evil forces of the Shadow Masters. A document has been found: it has magical powers. In the forest, the Dark Man meets a boy. Can he help find the document? Part of the incredible Dark Man phenomenon, this gritty and mysterious book will grip readers and pull them into the tense storyline. The sinister atmosphere and strong black-and-white illustrations will entice even the most reluctant of teen readers because the book doesn't patronise, and accompanies the dark tales with a 'grown-up' style. This is one of the higher level stories in the Dark Man series offering a degree of progression for more able readers.
