Dark Soul tells the crossing of paths between two Caribbean men, Don and Kai, both manifesting similar traits—but nothing is as it seems. The shadowy narrative begins at a residential care home in Plymouth Devon where the two connect; Don, a mature student ploughing through life’s twists and turns, and Kai, an older gentleman, skilled in the art of manipulation. Both men experience hallucinations—or do they?—their tales shrouded in uncertainty. This supernatural journey introduces friends and foes, mostly fuelled by folklore and dark times, past which governs many of our cultural beliefs. The story lures the reader across the globe as the many questionable characters from different countries compete for your trust.
