In 2021, I will be blogging more regularly about the books I’m reading and/or have added to my wishlist.
Let’s talk about the dark fantasy book series titled The Beam by Adrienne Woods—a USA Today Bestselling author, living in South Africa.
Dark Beam, Part I:
“Blake Leaf is not just a student he’s also a dragon. Not just any dragon but a very special dragon with a Destiny, which if he doesn’t fulfill it, he will turn evil.”
Everyone in Paegeia knows that only one Rubicon dragon lives at a time.
If more than one, they will destroy Paegeia and eventually the rest of the world as they crave that constant power for dominance.
Blake Leaf is this era’s Rubicon, and is destined for great things if his darkness can be won.
Darkbeam Part 1 follows the story of the Rubicon and how he tries to keep his beast, the darkness, at bay.
Dark Beam, Part II:
Everyone knows the Rubicon is predestined for evil, and the alpha dragon does nothing to change their opinions of him. What they don’t know is that he harbors a secret, a secret that can set him free, but also trap him forever.
Refusing to give in to that which can lead him to a path of freedom, Blake Leaf allows the darkness to attempt to claim his soul. But there is always a shining light somewhere, and sometimes it’s just too dark to see it.
Will Blake find his way back to light, or is it too late for him?
Dark Beam, Part III:
Blake Leaf is fighting against the Dent. He truly believes that the Dent is an enslavement spell. One where he would loose himself and that the bond is not natural. He takes extreme measures with the help of Sam and Dimitri, a very dark sorcerer, that might cost him his life, if he caves.
Blake Leaf is experiencing all sorts of new feelings after the Dent, and because of his past, the princess of Paegeia isn’t making it easy to trust him.
Only time and breaking through her layers will show her that he has changed. Then maybe their bond will heal and they will be find the missing ingredient in order to kill the Saadedine and free the people of Etan.
Now all he can do is to hope and pray that his secrets and past isn’t going to come back and mess up his his progress.
“DARKBEAM part 1-4 is Blake’s story. It’s not a retelling of the entire Dragonian Series, but yes, there is those similarity, as it takes place in Elena’s story but everything is through Blake’s POV, just different and we get to see how the bad boy/dragon is really put together.“
What I like about this fantasy book series is …
Darkbeam, part one falls under new adult, dark fantasy, and horror which promises an intense and memorable story filled with emotion.
With a solid 4+ star rating, readers think it’s “an absolutely FANTASTIC read,” “dark,” and “worth it” with “unexpected twists.”
I have added this book series to my to-be-read pile and I can’t wait to dive into this crazy good fantasy world soon.
