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.

Good read, hi-tech with a bit of Stephen King thrown in

Enjoyable although lots of disbelief suspension required. I expected more. It reads like a movie pitch or comic script more than anything. The quote from Dean Kootz on the book cover says, "Written in vivid, often lyrical prose." Um... not so much.

I gave up on this book half way through. Weird and dull. Oh, and as far as I had read... had NOTHING TO DO with the internet ... ?!?!?!

Kind of a cross between Dean Koontz, F. Paul Wilson with a sprinkling of Clive Barker - - entertaining read and interesting synthesis, fictionally speaking.
[Thought the Publishers Weekly review was overly critical and somewhat inept.]
