In honour of Tim Brannan‘s MONSTROUS MONDAY I want to introduce you to a monster the likes you may never meet again. If you’re squeamish, now would be a good time to run.

Wesley, a mentally challenged young man has the gift of healing. He also sees the colour green deep inside bad people, alerting him to the evil within. He learns quickly that he and only he can make the green go away. But sometimes in order to do that, he must kill. With each kill, he becomes stronger, but so does his mortal enemy, a young woman who is gathering kills faster than Wesley is healing. In the end, they will battle each other for the ultimate power. Yes, Dark Knowledge is about good and evil.

As a writer, I love well-written novels, with prose I can drool over, and a story I can’t put down, a protagonist I believe, and a bad guy that scares the heck out of me. DARK KNOWLEDGE is all of that and more. I was hooked from the beginning because the hero is challenged, but with each healing, little by little, knowledge is revealed to him, until he is attuned to sacrificing even his life to save the world.

What was most frightening about DARK KNOWLEDGE is that this evil controls the mind and leaves the victim without a chance of survival.

If you’re looking for a book you can sink your teeth into, for a hero you can cheer for out loud, for a story so credible it makes your teeth chatter, I can’t recommend DARK KNOWLEDGE enough. Riveting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat frightening, DARK KNOWLEDGE is the story of something evil this way comes.

I discovered Keith Pyeatt’s work in the mid-90s. I knew I’d found a gold mine after first reading MIND SHADOW. Then it was ABOVE HALDIS NOTCH, followed by STRUCK. I can’t wait for Pyeatt’s next book!


I have to admit, the monster in Keith Pyeatt’s DARK KNOWLEDGE scared me big time. I was so engrossed in the story, I ended up reading the novel in less than 2 days. I couldn’t put it down. But–I had to sleep with a nightlight!
Here’s Amazon’s synopsis:
With knowledge comes a dark destiny…

A whole new world beckons inside the mind of mentally challenged Welsey Henson, a world that offers him a gift he can’t resist: knowledge. He carries these bits of knowledge back to the physical world, unaware of the dark instincts that come with them. The knowledge builds Wesley’s intellect, giving him abilities he’s never had before—to know the world around him, to heal…but these new instincts thrust him into an evil contest he can’t understand, much less win, against opponents who are trained to kill. The more Wesley understands, the harder it becomes to tell good from evil, and the more difficult his choices become. What must he sacrifice to save the world from his dark knowledge…his life, or his soul?
