More About the Author



Luke Romyn was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1975. His life since reads like something out of his novels: heavily entrenched in personal trauma, action, thrills, and adventure.

For over two decades, Luke has worked in the security industry; from bouncing in some of Australia's roughest pubs and nightclubs to protecting Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew from the overzealous jaws of tenacious toddlers. He's been bodyguard for celebrities internationally and chased feral pigs and snakes from jungle sets on Steven Spielberg productions. Luke has traveled the globe and spent time in some of the most amazing locations the world has to offer.

This experience fuels the Australian writer's ever-expansive imagination, and he pours it into his novels, combining fact with fiction, history with fantasy, delivering engrossing action-thrillers which leave fans gasping for more. Luke's quick wit has seen his social media following explode, and he is currently one of the most prolific social media celebrities in Australia, with several hundred thousand followers across the internet.

Publishing his first book, The Dark Path, in 2009 saw it voted in the top 10 horror novels of that year, even though Luke denies ever intending the novel to be classed as horror. Luke Romyn is now one of the most popular indie authors in the ever-growing eBook market and personally completes everything from cover art to final formatting, working tirelessly with editors so as to refine the best stories possible for his readers. The results are international bestsellers you're certain to love diving into. Hundreds of thousands of readers can't be wrong.

Product Description

About the Author

Luke Romyn spent many years, over nineteen in fact, working in the security industry. From doorwork in some of Australia's roughest pubs and clubs to protecting Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew from the overzealous jaws of tenacious toddlers, Luke has worked throughout Australia and internationally in a vast array of roles. He's done close protection for UK celebrities in Fiji and chased feral pigs and snakes out of the jungle film sets on Steven Spielberg's and Tom Hank's epic: The Pacific. There are few things Luke hasn't seen. With all this experience behind him, it would have been tempting to write a set of memoirs. Instead, Luke utilized it to fuel his own expansive imagination and began writing fiction. Initially starting with short stories, Luke rapidly progressed onto novels. All three of Luke's books have been category best sellers on Amazon, with over 200,000 copies being distributed to date.

Format: Kindle Edition
`The Dark Path', by Australian author Luke Romyn, is a novel in the horror genre. However, more than that, it also deals with questions of spirituality and the supernatural. Written in a very straightforward manner, with no excessive or flowery description (you are told as much as is necessary - I found this refreshing) it tells the story of a hard-headed, cold blooded assassin named Vain.

Although Vain is an abhorrent character from the outset, killing his victims for profit and money (and enjoyment!), the reader quickly identifies and feels empathy for him. This allows you to care for the `Dark Man' as he takes his journey on the dark path.

The story is fast paced and also forces the reader to think about some spiritual issues that were completely unexpected by me when I started the book.

I originally found the author Luke Romyn via the social media tool Twitter, and was tempted by his personal wit and personality to purchase this novel. It was a good decision and I thoroughly enjoyed the journey which reading `The Dark Path' took me on. I would definitely recommend this book.

Authors are like Photographers.

Everyone who has a camera thinks they take amazing photos, many books available here are by those who are trying to write amazing books but do not achieve their aim.

Luke is an author in a very different category. This book is awesome.

He writes beautifully with insightful build up in his characters which leads you to actually CARE what happens and leaves you wanting more. Much more.

It took me some time to find Luke as an author due to the amount of material I go through.
Testimony indeed that I feel the need to devote my time to a review of his work.

The story is a well structured, supernatural theme which I thoroughly enjoy but it is the characters are the main body of the story.

Like a skilled artist, they are painted as beautifully as the scenes in which they are placed.
As I dislike others spoiling a storyline for others so I will not divulge other details.
Sufficient to say the story is well paced and more than captivating throughout.

On the strength of this one title, I have now purchased ALL of Lukes other works and I am currently enthralled by 'Blacklisted'

To summarise. ignore any negatives you read, do yourself justice and make your own mind up by clicking the purchase button.

It's well worth the asking price!

Once more Luke Romyn excels - unbeknownst to me, this book set the scene and characters for later novels, which were to come, and have subsequently read. Superb!

A book well written enough to make it hard to sleep. Up there with James Herbert, I'd say, for a nail biting and hypnotic read. Right from the start one feels like a rabbit held hypnotized by the venomous snake of Romyn's strong and compelling narrative.

Okay, so it's not the "best written" book I've come across, (but who am I to judge?)
This guy's stories are amazing, the characters great fun and the pace is phrenetic and non stop.
If you want a strong story line AND a fast read which you will not want to put down.READ ON!

I also have to say the rest are better and if you get around to reading BLACKLISTED when it is out, I only wish I could give 6 or 7 stars!!
