Kasper Beaumont unveils new dark fantasy series
I'm excited to feature Aussie author Kasper Beaumont, whom I've featured here on the blog many years back with the start of her middle grade adventure series The Hunters of Reloria: Elven Jewel.
In this new book (or series), Beaumont is going for new territory. Not middle grade this time but definitely still in the fantasy genre…
Meet CAPTIVE OF DARKNESS!
(Book 1 in the Hidden Angel series)
Author: Kasper Beaumont
Blurb for Captive of the Darkness:
Can an angel be hiding here on Earth?
A veil of secrecy is lifted on Riley’s 18th birthday. She thought she knew the world, but now discovers she is a demon hunter. It doesn’t seem real, but then she meets Him, a charismatic young dancer with special powers.
He is a prisoner of a powerful demon.
What secrets does this stranger hide? Will Riley risk her own family to save Him?
More about the book in Kasper's words:
On Riley’s 18th birthday, she is told she’s a demon hunter, like the rest of her family. She shrugs the news off in disbelief but that very night she unwittingly enters the lair of a powerful demon and her whole world is turned upside down.
She meets a stripper nicknamed Cupid, who states he is prisoner of the demon. He is a graceful ballet dancer forced into slavery but yearning to escape his dangerous master. When she sees a glowing aura around this young man, she realizes he isn’t just any ordinary lad, but something very special. She knows she must try to save him.
Captive of the Darkness by Kasper Beaumont is up for pre-order via Amazon. The book will be published on 14 December 2019.
Excerpt from Captive of Darkness:
Small sandy feet pounded the warm pavement along the beach. His heartbeat thrummed in his ears, faster than he ever thought possible. The whispering kept getting closer, no matter how far or fast he ran. He swiped a cap from outside a shower cubicle. It was rather large for his head, a perfect disguise. This covered most of his blond hair and shaded his eyes. He hoped to outwit whoever was chasing him. Turning a corner, he dove into a shaded alleyway and bent over to catch his breath. An aching side-stitch now caught his attention, winding him. His hands trembled as they rested on shaking and weakened knees. Turning his cap backwards, he held his breath and peeked a look around the corner. There was no sign of pursuit. He let his breath out and wiped the sweat cascading down his cheeks that had soaked his swim shirt. Fear drove him on. It was instinct, not a rational decision on his behalf. Then all the hairs on his body stood up on end. A cold shiver ran down his spine. A shadow passed over him. A whisper, quiet and close. Warm breath could be felt on his neck. He turned around slow. His eyes widened as his hands grasped for the wall at his back. There was nowhere left to run. "Oh please no...”
