Book Description

The Darkening of Deacon by Elita Daniels

The Indie Book of the Day for 29th of October, 2012!

Genre: Fantasy, Mystery

Wrath, vengeance, hatred, cannot breathe the same atmosphere as love. And so it was that love began to wither and withdraw…

Among the ageless quietude of the elves, Deacon, a mortal, suffers the inescapable awareness of mortality. He lived in what many deemed perfection, but a dark uncertainty plagued him that there lay treachery in it all.

When secrets of his mysterious heritage are revealed, the young mage is thrown into a revolt of confusion, and in an unwholesome vent of misery, travels a path of unforgivable deeds. One of the few left of his kind – a race whose magical energies are vigorously interwoven with their lifeforce – Deacon is drawn into a world that turns into an involution of evil and death.

Read Sample

The idea of exploring fascinating characters and great stories has always captivated me. Working with a small team of people who get excited over the same project, the story, the cover design, the videos, and everything else that goes into bringing a book to life. It’s been a pleasure to work with my friends and family, and all of you who have supported me along the way. We still have a long way to go, but I’m looking forward to it!

I had dabbled a bit with story writing for years, but it wasn’t until I wrote a screenplay for a competition, from which I received some excellent encouragement that I decided to try my hand at a novel. But I had no story. I did, however, have a beautiful little scene in my mind of mother and son running from something or someone. As I began to get excited and ask myself more questions a story began to unfold. Then my beloved dog, whom I had loved and looked after for over thirteen years died in my hands, and my world went black. Not only for the loss of him, but the sudden revelation of mortality. I thought of all my loved ones, the fragility of life, and how I could not bare to lose any one of them. Here, a silhouette of a story was taking shape.

It wasn’t until I came across a picture on the internet of a dark-haired young man, who was devastatingly beautiful, that my story rapidly came together. I did some research and discovered he was a character from Christopher Paolini’s “Eragon”, portrayed by Garrett Hedlund. It was decided instantly. I wanted more of him. All the feelings impressed on me when I look at him I put down on paper. And this fantastic story came alive, with characters so real I couldn’t stop them from speaking in my mind, even at night when trying to sleep.

With the help of my husband (putting up with my virtual love affair with Garrett Hedlund), the help of my family and friends, and my beautiful dark-haired muse, an awesome story came into being. It was a wonderfully therapeutic, exciting experience and I look forward to many more great stories!
