Rate this:
The second book in the groundbreaking bestselling trilogy, from the creator of the CSI franchise.

Steve Dark was once a lost soul, torn between his family and his one-of-a-kind talent for hunting and catching serial killers-especially those so-called "level 26" killers whose depravity exceeds law enforcement's official scale of evil. In his reluctant pursuit of justice Dark once crossed the ultimate line, a line that might cause a lesser man to lose himself completely.

Not Dark. When the world took everything from him, when it destroyed the very thing Dark once lived for, it brought a moment of clarity that few before him have witnessed, and sparked a transformation that, several years later, is only just complete.

Dark is now a man on a mission. A mission that no longer requires law enforcement support. A mission unbound by authorities, moral or otherwise, and supported by a mysterious benefactor with unknown goals of her own. A mission that, at long last, allows him to embrace his destiny. Dark is finally ready- ready to take justice to the next level.

Not all sequels are created equal. And, sadly, this is the case for Dark Prophecy. The first book, Level 26 Dark Origins was masterfully well crafted, edge of the seat mystery into depravity and twisted to the core of the villain. It was dark and grungy and made me cringe. The sequel made me want to sip a pina colada on a beach while relaxing, as the hero tackles his difficulties and gets involved, years later, into a series of gruesome murders. But, minus the psycho mindset, minus the tension, minus the squeamish cringes, minus, minus so much that it lacked the forceful debut of the first book.

The ONLY saving grace to this sequel is that the end is left in sequel mode once again, and with the promise of a more tantalizing follow up, as a new organization is about to be created to handle the Level 26 murderers (the most depraved type of serial killers) that pervade our world, with the hero as the leading investigator.

Otherwise, any more of the series' books should be Level 26'd thereafter.
