You can get a free sample at my website.
Here’s the “product description”:
The myths and folklore from the Malay peninsula is not something the Western World has been much exposed to. Tunku Halim now takes us into that dark, superstitious realm.
This is the tale of Shazral who was terrorised by a demon as a boy, growing up in a small village. After his mother dies in mysteriously, Shazral leaves for the city and becomes a lawyer, forsaking his father and his home. When he returns to his dying father, he learn his “inheritance” is to follow his father, to become a shaman, to heal the sick and protect the village from the demon.
“This new ground in the genre is very refreshing and the author takes great care to educate the reader while still being entertaining. There are also a few good twists that keep you guessing right to the end of the story.” – Craig Lockely, Amazon Review
Dark Demon Rising was nominated for the 1999 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and was studied by Glennis Byron from the University of Sterling, her article appearing in Asian Gothic (2008). “Monsters”, as she says, “do cultural work”.
