A memory comes to the Dark Man. It is a painful memory, of a time before the Shadow Masters. The Dark Man remembers Astrid - the girl he loved - and the night in the forest when the Shadow Masters took her from him. Now, it is Dark Man's duty to stop the Shadow Masters, but can he forget Astrid? 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.
