Arisen Darkness *official premier*

Arisen Darkness
Passion & Affection series, book 1
Book: Romance, Science fiction/ fantasy

She was a temptress.  She was alluring and beautiful, and despite reasons I should hate her... I was in love.
Daray lives in the darkness.  He has every day of his life and he is certain this will never change.  Inside an abandoned castle he and his father, Malvagio, hide from the rest of the world.  Malvagio tells him this is because it makes them stronger.  However, Daray knows it is simply because there is more he must learn.  Whether the Dark magic kills him or no, his training must persist.
During the cold days Daray roams the empty fields and dead plains, he meets a woman.  She is attractive and smart, and he is automatically drawn toward her.  Everything about her makes him desire her more, but Malvagio has strict rules against this.  Instead he tortures his son and lets Juliana live in the castle with them.  
He wants her and she seems to notice this, despite his attempts to hide his feelings.  And as his powers advance, Juliana reasons and pleads for Daray to leave.  He should not only leave the one person he's ever known to trust... but he should also walk away from his magic.  The more she tries to convince him, the more determined he becomes to go against her, love... and the rules of magic.

And now a preview of the prologue, ladies and gents...
Je suis noir.
Darkness, it swallows me
Like a bird might devour a worm.
Light, it stalks me
Like a snake may do with its prey.
Evil, it flows through me
Like the water flowing in a sea.
The wind…
It howls at me
Like a wolf howls at the moon.
Il ne reste rien dans mon coeur.

Before I come to an end with this premier and get to work on uploading 10K of STRONGER, I want to say a bit about the prologue.
The first part I have showed you is a poem.  The poem, you find out later, has significance --to more than what you might first think.  The first and last lines of the poem are in French.  Daray and his father live in France; however, since I do not take French, nor do I care to deal with translations and etc. this is probably the only pieces of French you will see in the book.  All the same, I'll save you the trouble and tell you what the two lines translate to.
Je suis noir --I am dark
Il ne reste rien dans mon coeur --Nothing remains in my heart

Hopefully this premier has gotten you caught up in the story.  I will continue to keep you up to date with the project as time passes.  In the mean while, if you are not on the mailing list please request to be now.   As soon as this book goes public there's going to be fires blazing.  Literally not kidding, but I cannot tell you any more than that.

Thank you so much! I didn't expect such a positive attitude towards it, and that was only a poem. What are you going to do when there is more?

Probably die. (That is, if I don't die waiting.) Then come back to life so I can read more, :D

Aww you make it sound so awful that you must wait. Don't worry; before you realize it, the book will be up... hopefully
