One of a series of reading books for children and young adults aged 11 and over who are struggling to read. Dark Man is a fiction series for older children and young adults who have a reading age of approximately 5 to 8. Each book features the character Dark Man, a shadowy, brooding loner who shuns society, living in the shadows. Recruited to play a part in a secret, cataclysmic struggle between good and evil, his continued mission is to seek out an artefact, a Golden Cup, which can channel limitless power and energy. Opposed to him, and also seeking to find this cup of power, is a sinister and corrupt organisation, The Shadow Masters. The book has a strong plot to engage the reader, however reluctant, and features dark evocative illustrations. The simple, carefully written text (under 400 words) focuses on the most common words, providing access for even the poorest readers. In the Dark River, the Dark Man must seek the gold coins. The Old Man said they will help him in his search for the Golden Cup. As Josie sleeps, she shows Dark Man the way to the river. The savage current of the water fights him and ghostly creatures grab at him beneath the water. Can the Dark Man defeat the dark river and recover the coins? Software and teacher's support materials are also available.
