From author Jon Land and creator Fabrizio Boccardi comes Dark Light: Dawn, a heart-pounding supernatural thriller about a deadly, global epidemic and the man who holds the power to either save the world or destroy it.
Since the dawn of time good and evil have challenged the free will of man. Now the time has come for one man to choose for all human kind.
With an uncanny ability to survive any combat situation, Max Younger has built a heroic life for himself as a Navy SEAL. That is, until a rogue rescue operation plunges him back into a past he thought he’d escaped forever.
Waiting for him back home in New York are terrible, long-hidden truths rooted in the tragic death of his father. But the origin of those truths lie even further back than that, and Max finds himself ensnared in a sinister plot involving nothing less than the biblical apocalypse.
The explosive conflagration of events reunites him with the only woman he ever loved: Victoria Tanoury a brilliant infectious disease specialist working for the World Health Organization, who’s on the front lines in a battle to stop the spread of a deadly pestilence threatening the planet. Max’s reunion with Vicky comes amid a combat mission, in which their dual quests merge in a desperate fight for survival against forces of unspeakable evil.
Across the globe, inexplicably diabolic events are rising, sparked by a fearsome plan to visit the End of Days upon civilization in horrific form, as the lines between science and superstition become increasingly blurred. Max finds himself mired in a titanic struggle within his own soul, between love and hate, unsure whether his ultimate fate is to help fight the evil. . . or embrace it in the shadow of the Dawn of a Dark Light.

As with his Tyrant series (Black Scorpion, etc.), Thriller Award finalist Land's ambitious supernatural thriller draws on characters created by entrepreneur Fabrizio Boccardi: Ben Younger and his son, Max Borgia; and Dale Denton and his daughter, Victoria Tanoury, whose lives are all inextricably intertwined with a mysterious glowing rock. The rock, which was discovered in 1990 in the Yucat n, where Ben and Dale were drilling for oil, has dire consequences that only gradually become clear, as Land skips back and forth from past to present, globe hopping from Brazil to Yemen and Iraq and introducing major characters such as papal investigator Pascal Jimenez and terrorist Mohammed al-Qadir. Navy SEAL Max and virologist Victoria cross paths as Max battles innumerable enemies and Victoria tries to identify and cure an unknown, widespread pathogen that threatens the world. Land's scattershot storytelling is heavy on the strange, the unexplained, and the violent in this epic adventure novel.
