This new Special Edition is illustrated, which will be a special treat for the reader who is a fan of the series first published by Scholastic UK and Cora Verlag. But hurry! This special offer will not be repeated this year.

Bianca mourns for her old friend Doc who helped her overcome her fear of the dark after being the only witness to a brutal murder on St. Simons Island. He was driven out of town two years ago when the locals concluded that he must be the killer. She last saw him parachuting from a plane escaping from the law, a fall he couldn’t have survived. She’s moved to California with her employers, the Shipleys, and taken on a permanent babysitting position with Little Katie. Suddenly there’s a kidnapping attempt on the rich little heiress that Bianca is employed to protect. To the rescue comes a tall, dark young man who reminds her of somebody she’s lost. But it just couldn’t be . . . After all, he’s dead. And after all . . . he’s supposed to be the bad guy.

Dark 3 concludes the Dark Series for young adults, first published by Scholastic UK. It also ties into and concludes the Edward Ware Thriller Series of historical novels about World War 1 and World War 2 with the biggest surprise ending of all time. The novel will be published by Cheops Books LLC on September 15.

Teens rarely need an excuse to stay up late, but The Dark by Dora Benley would give pause for thought to even the most steely nerved youngster. A genuinely gripping horror story. Approach with caution.

New Book Cover For Dark 3: Special Edition:

The new book cover for Dark 3: Special Edition will be unveiled on September 15, the publication date for the young adult thriller novel by Dora Benley on Amazon Kindle. But you liked the old Dark 3 cover with the image of the screaming girl? We are incorporating a new background and keeping the same screaming girl image in the foreground. Instead of a graveyard with mountains and bats in the background, look for a scene from the Dark 3 story. If you study the new cover closely you will find the Pacific Northwest Coastline. Look for sea lions, in fact a whole colony of them just as in the novel where Bianca confronts Harry Fellini who is trying to kidnap her and Little Katie. You might also be able to distinguish small human being climbing about the mountainside and perhaps at the top of the cliff a parked Mercedes, Doc’s vehicle for transporting Bianca and Little Katie to Vancouver. Right now the cover artist, Andrew, is putting the finishing touches on the new book cover for Dark 3: Special Edition. Look forward to a treat.

Illustrations For Dark 3: Special Edition:

Dark 3: Special Edition will be the first book that Cheops Books LLC publishes that will feature illustrations of the characters. On September 15 you, the readers, will get to admire the black and white drawings of Andrew the artist. He has visualized several of the major characters from the young adult thriller novel, Dark 3: Special Edition. You will get to see what the heroine, Bianca Winters, the one-time babysitter of Little Katie, looks like. Ditto the mysterious figure, Doc, who has haunted the entire Dark Series. You will get to see what the big bad guy, Mike Fellini, the jail breaker, looks like as he haunts the Hoh Rain Forest on the Olympic Peninsula. He might be about ready to kidnap Little Katie once again. You get to look into the innocent baby blue eyes of the heiress, the four-year-old little girl, Katie Shipley, whom Bianca loves to babysit. You even get to study Mrs. Baker, the ultimate villainess of Dark 3: Special Edition, as she tries to hoodwink the Shipleys and Bianca to fall for her bag of tricks. These illustrations will be sprinkled throughout the special edition. Look for them there.

Teenager Bianca Winters had no idea what was in store for her in the next few years when she took on a babysitting assignment across the street with Little Katie Shipley. That night her whole life was to change forever as a killer roamed around in the dark upstairs. She had to save the baby while the housekeeper, Mrs. Ingersoll, fell to her death.

In the months that followed the murder, Bianca comes under the wing of her new medical advisor, Doc, who helps her recover from the horrible experience. She falls in love with the young man only to have doubt cast on his motives by circumstances that hint that he himself is the killer. When he goes on the run, she has to still believe in him somehow. How could she love a murderer?

Katie Shipley’s parents move to California and take Bianca with them as her live in babysitter. Bianca thinks that Doc is dead, killed trying to escape from the authorities. But then just as a strange gentleman from England appears and tries to kidnap Little Katie, a young man who reminds her of the one she has lost materializes in her life again. He shows her what has really been going on all these years behind the scenes, why Mrs. Ingersoll was killed, and what the bad guys want with Little Katie. The trilogy ends with the biggest surprise ending of all time.
