The Dark Net

 
9781473652217: The Dark Net

“[An] imaginative, spooky, swiftly paced tale threaded through with dark humor.”—Dean Koontz
 
“Percy’s blend of cyberpunk-style SF and occult horror is a perfect combo for summer chills.”—Library Journal

The Dark Net is real. An anonymous and often criminal arena that exists in the secret far reaches of the Web, some use it to manage Bitcoins, pirate movies and music, or traffic in drugs and stolen goods. And now, an ancient darkness is gathering there as well. This force is threatening to spread virally into the real world unless it can be stopped by members of a ragtag crew, including a twelve-year-old who has been fitted with a high-tech visual prosthetic to combat her blindness; a technophobic journalist; a one-time child evangelist with an arsenal in his basement; and a hacker who believes himself a soldier of the Internet.
 
Set in present-day Portland, The Dark Net is a cracked-mirror version of the digital nightmare we already live in, a timely and wildly imaginative techno-thriller about the evil that lurks in real and virtual spaces, and the power of a united few to fight back.

Review:

An Indie Next Pick

An iBooks Most Anticipated Mystery & Thriller Selection

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, Mysteries and Thrillers

“Masterful crafting . . . a horror story for our times.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Benjamin Percy's distinctive brand of horror fiction...is on full display in The Dark Net. The novel blends aspects of techno-thrillers with supernatural horror for page-turning results. Percy is no stranger to unlikely genre fusions, but The Dark Net's idiosyncratic brew is particularly enticing."—Shelf Awareness

“A rich mash-up of suspense, techno-thriller, horror, and the supernatural, Percy pulls it all together with a terrific cast of characters, finely-tuned plot twists and killer prose, sprinkled generously with spot-on snark and fun puns, as well as lovely turns of phrase.”—Seattle Review of Books

“Maybe you've read it before. But you haven't read it like Percy can write it.”—The Lewiston Tribune

"Of all the things that The Dark Net is, the greatest is that it’s a Blob-swallowing thing...if you’re into Benjamin Percy’s work, you’ll love this, and if you don’t even know who Benjamin Percy is, this book will make you want to devour his other books." — PANK Magazine

“A brisk read that sweeps us along with the good guys as they try to pull the plug on a Satantic Singularity.”—Toronto Star

“Percy’s greatest strength- and he has many- has always been his world building...those who only know of Percy’s work through his meteoric success in comic books will find THE DARK NET to be the perfect crossover work to his novels. Action packed, fast-paced, and incredibly imaginative, THE DARK NET is yet another feather in Benjamin Percy’s cap.”—CrimeSpree Magazine

"Percy takes the darkest conspiracy theories you can imagine and makes them the stuff of nightmares....humankind is held responsible for its irresponsibility, paying the price for all the convenience we take for granted, for our obsession with the digital world...the message is effective and scary...there's something undeniably creepy about the thought that your smartphone can possess you. A gory cautionary tale." — Kirkus

“For non-technophilic readers who have never heard of the dark web, Silk Road or TOR, Percy provides brief, entertaining explanations reminiscent of Michael Crichton's paranoiac invocations of popular science.”—Shelf Awareness

“Percy’s blend of cyberpunk-style sf and occult horror is a perfect combo for summer chills.”—Library Journal

“Maybe you've read it before. But you haven't read it like Percy can write it.”—The Lewiston Tribune

“Percy keeps it suspenseful and compelling from the first page...In this fast-paced demonic cyber-thriller, Percy has a sinister take on the deepest parts of our digital lives.”—Booklist

“The Dark Net is a fun romp through the blackest recesses of contemporary tech.”—New York Journal of Books

“Written in vivid, often lyrical prose, but with exhilarating comic-book energy, THE DARK NET is a megawatt defibrillator to the reader’s heart. Quirky but very human characters confront an explosive emergence of the supernatural into our world, in this imaginative, spooky, swiftly paced tale threaded through with dark humor.” –Dean Koontz

“Beautifully written, as extravagant as the night sky but way more cool, The Dark Net demonstrates Benjamin Percy’s soft-footed yet industrial-strength imagination, storytelling mastery, deep curious infatuated humanity, and his total willingness to throw himself off one narrative cliff after another. This is horror literature’s bebop, bold, smart, confident in its capacity to redefine its genre from the ground up. Read this book, but take a firm grip on your hat before you start.”—Peter Straub

"Benjamin Percy's The Dark Net channels the spirit of your favorite sprawling and epic 1980s horror/thriller novels into a tightly paced, nasty, unrelenting 21st century nightmare. An addictive and frightening read."—Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock 

“THE DARK NET kicked my ass with its deft mash-up of both blackhat hacker culture and black magic. Percy reveals an upgraded, rebooted battle between good versus evil — a fast, fantastic, throat-punch of a read.” — Chuck Wendig, NYT bestselling author of Blackbirds and Zer0es

“Percy turns in a fast-paced thriller with crisp, honest dialogue and well-imagined characters.”—Library Journal
