Shades 04 : Black Sun Rising - Robert Hood
ScaryMinds - Horror's Last Colonial Outpost Robert Hood Publisher Hodder Headline Australia Pty Ltd The fourth book in the Shades series sees Robert Hood delivering the best instalment to date, clearly there are meant to be further novels but as of writing that's our lot for the current time. Dang not happy Jan, Black Sun Rising finishes with some questions left unanswered and I for one am hanging out for a fifth book to round things out. Once you immerse yourself in the Shades Universe, if you haven't already, then you'll know what I mean. But hey spare a thought for Rob Hood, are we ever going to be happy without a new book in the series being sent our way? Hope the word processor is rocking there big Fella. Like the previous three books in the series Black Sun Rising is written in the first person narrative style from the viewpoint of a different character. One of the strengths of the series is that things are kept fresh due to each book being an account by a completely different Shade. It's sort of like the fantasy version of the new testament though we aren't covering the same ground here, and time moves along between and during each novel. Guess I just lost any fundamental Christians who may have stumbled onto the site. Once again Robert Hood is writing for a demographic that he doesn't talk down to. There's an inherent feeling with Black Sun Rising that Author Hood is rounding out a story cycle and bringing to a head events flowing from the previous three novels. Arguably you don't need to read each book in sequence, but a full understand of the present action in book four is dependant on you having spent some time in Country with at least the previous release. There's references and assumed knowledge going down, with Rob Hood not wasting any valuable space rehashing previous information. As is the norm with the Shades series Robert Hood has approached his younger readership without looking down on them. Black Sun Rising romps along like a Voorhees family member at a Counsellor reunion bash, with the language is use being geared toward the young adult demographics the novel is aimed at rather than an older, presumably more widely read, target Audience. Teens will get onboard Rob Hood's groove train here without having to stumble over great hulking passages of description or highly metaphysical ramblings from the main character. There are a number of highlights through the course of the novel that should keep young people entertained while they read on to find out "how it all turned out". That's quite the achievement really when you considered Rob Hood can also strut his stuff for an older Audience without breaking into a sweat. While there's no overt adult content, and no I'm not talking sex and stuff here, there's a feeling Rob Hood had his analogy hat on throughout the Shades series with the whole Tenebran thing not being that far removed from another realm containing fallen Angels. Overall there's a real feeling to Black Sun Rising that Rob Hood knows his craft with the Author at no time stinting in the writing process.

Robert Hood, Robin Pen
And I should add a big thanks to Rob Hood who was instrumental in getting the books into my hot little hands. So hey if reading and wondering what sort of insanity you have dipped your toes into then blame my wife, besides she supports the Waratahs, never a good sign in itself. In the wash-up you would have to say that Editors Hood and Pen are not being overly precious about their collection theme here and can see the natural humour giant monsters inspire in audiences. Unfortunately you may find the collection slightly hard to come by as agog! press seem to have gone into a holding pattern while Cat Sparks and Robert Hood spend some quality time working on their own fiction.
