“With a lyrical tone and hilarious dialogue that do double duty with its world building, the novel continues the brilliant satire seen in the series’ earlier books…whimsical adventure, and frequent, humorous plays on words, spoofs of contemporary events, and clever reversals of expected dynamics make Now Before the Dark a delight.” —C. Foster, Foreword Reviews” Fans of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams will appreciate the farce and puns that are the hallmark of Hooker’s writing.” —Dawn Kuczwara, BooklistTime is running out for the Old Country.
How does one save a nation when the erstwhile gods are against the idea? In the finale of Terribly Serious Darkness, it’s up to Sloot Peril–the world’s greatest accountant and poorest everything else–to figure it out.Unfortunately, he’ll have help. A philosopher who’d sooner die (again) than do any real work, a bard who can’t play his non-instrument, and a spooky wizard who’s often mistaken for a vampire may not be ideal allies, but with any luck—which Sloot’s never had—they’ll occasionally get out of his way.Does Sloot stand a chance against serpent cults, demons, dragons, and the most sinister financial report every written? Doubtful. If he’s even going to survive the dance contest, he’ll have to think of something now, before the Dark swallows everything up.You can purchase Now Before the Dark at the following Retailers:

NOW BEFORE THE DARK by Sam Hooker @SamHooker @blackspotbooks
Now Before Dark is the third installment in the Terrible Serious Darkness series.
Have you read the first two books of the series. Peril in the Old Country and Soul Remains.
A fantastic dark comedy that is a must read.
A former accountant turned demon, Sloot will face some hard challenges.
He will need some help from a few friends. An allegedly reformed gremlin who wants to be Sloot’s bard. There has been a lot of demonic and human scheming, some divine interference, and interesting transformation.
Sam Hooker is master storyteller, he cleverly uses humor to draw readers into the storyline. Using stunning satire and wit, all the while sliding in some serious drama, like heroism.
Hooker is an impressive author. Flying under the radar of some of some of the more popular books. This series is by far better than most I have read this year.
Sam Hooker writes darkly humorous fantasy novels about thing like tyrannical despots and the masked scoundrels who tickle them without mercy. He knows all the best swear words, though he refuses to repeat them because he doesn’t want to attract goblins.
