From Goodreads: In this horror adventure, a well-known police acquaintance asks Jason Dark to discreetly look into the case of a missing Chief Constable, which is out of Scotland Yard’s jurisdiction. When Dark and Siu Lin arrive in Swanage, however, they find that the quaint English seaside village hides more than its share of horrible secrets. Ghosts Templar is filled with ruined castles, ghostly hoof beats in the night, and a series of macabre murders, which swirl amidst rumors that undead Templar knights have awakened to exact a bloody revenge. Investigate if you dare.
This is, by far, my favorite novella in the series so far! While I really enjoyed Demon’s Night and Theater of Vampires, Ghost’s templar swept me off my feet! It’s completely unique and original, and I absolutely love the gothic feel, the sense of olden days, and the mystical allusions of life and death. This is a superb story, bringing back our two amazing, kick butt character, Jason Dark and Siu Lin as they embark on a mission given to them by none other than Constable Lestrade himself, a character right out of Sherlock Holmes!!!
This novella is very well written and captivating. I love both the imagination Henkel possesses and his master storytelling abilities! I am really enjoying the series, especially as each novella has been, so far, a standalone piece that and can be read at your leisure, though most will be read in one sitting as they’re short enough but just long enough to produce a feeling of a job well done when finished. Great story! Five stars.
I received a copy of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review.
