First off this an adult fantasy which is refreshing. There were battle scenes that were so gristly it made me shiver. My favorite thing about the book was the hunter s struggle between the demon and humanity. I also love the underlying messages such as this: "You claim to be less than human, but your actions prove that you are more than just a man. You cared for those people, that little girl, even though the rest of the world treated them as castaways and scum. That is not the action of a monster." Excellent read! --Angela J. Ford
Reading authors such as R.A. Salvatore and Weiss and Hickman. I am hoping that I have entered into a new realm after reading the Darkblade Assassin. Andy Peloquin, could very well rival the greats and its alway fun to want a movie made of a book you read. This was one of the hardest books to put down that I have read in the last 10 years. --Shane Walradt

The Hunter is a name feared by all in Voramis. He is an outcast, driven by a cursed dagger with an unquenchable thirst for blood and death.
Yet he follows one simple code: kill those who truly deserve to die. His creed is put to the test when, deceived by a shadowy employer, he unknowingly slaughters an innocent man.
With the most powerful criminal organization in the city after his head, the Hunter must fight for his life and find a way to atone for his mistake. When his enemies harm the people under his protection, it will take much more than an army of criminals to stand in the way of his revenge.
If you love anti-heroes like the Punisher or Dexter in a breathtaking fantasy realm, then immerse yourself in Hero of Darkness today! Andy Peloquin delivers an epic tale of one man’s struggle to survive in a world of magic, blood, and death.
