Monsters, Revenge and the Abyss. AJ Adams talking about Rip, the hero from Dark Hunter

    Nietzsche was interested in morality, particularly in truth, good and evil. The abyss theme is one of his most famous. I'm interested in monsters too, and so I created Rip Marston, a perfect monster. When we meet Rip, he's a day shy of his 18th birthday. Just weeks before, Rip was an actor, just a kid, taking on his first stage role, but on a path to a happy life on the boards - except, a criminal gang killed his family in a robbery. Because of this, Rip is consumed by pain. In chapter one, he stalks and kills Greasy Sykes, just as he stalked and skilled Greasy's mates, because revenge is his only relief. When Rip kills, the pain is replaced by power - aka his monster. Nietzsche believed that unbridled hate, fear or righteousness feeds our inner shadow. So those who are consumed by fighting evil, become evil themselves. I think he's right. So, in this zeta cartel novel, I take the classic setup. Unbridled hate, righteousness and monster slaying dominate
