Unique Dark Fantasy

The magic of storytelling

I set out to professionally write as an author to share my thoughts and experiences with the world, with whomever feels that insights into a better self, a better life are important. I always value the higher self, inner transformation to better my relationships, my creativity, in general my life, the most.

And I feel my journey, my thoughts, my wisdom can inspire or motivate people to find their way as well. So, I started writing non-fiction. But soon I found a way to share all that I wanted to share through the magic of storytelling. So I started my Dark Fantasy series “BENJAMIN JONES”.

A unique story

The story of an indigenous orphan boy who seeks to discover what really happened to his parents, also to discover his magic and the mysterious connection he has to ancient Sumerian gods; and all while he meets with unknown forces of evil. And so, I would like to share with you a very special review I received on the 2nd book in the series.

Because my style is different. And because I seek to bring also a little awareness to the reader in a time when the world needs it the most. Please check out the following review. Once in a while, a reader truly gets me ūüėÉūü§©ūüĒ•‚̧ԳŹ‚úĆÔłŹ

A supernatural-type novel that could be considered for adults or young adults. If you like the unique way the author writes, it’s an engaging read.

The Dark Zones of The light…

¬†¬†¬†¬† In¬† these¬† troubled¬† times,¬† his¬† planet¬† was¬† in¬† war¬† because¬† The¬† Lord¬† of¬† Darkness¬† and¬† his¬† demons¬† had¬† claimed¬† their¬† new¬† territories¬† there.¬† These ¬†territories ¬†were¬† called¬† ‚ÄėThe¬† Dark¬† Zones¬† of¬† The¬† Light,‚Äô¬† because¬† now¬† the¬† planet¬† of¬† The¬† Illumined¬† Ones¬† was¬† under¬† darkness.¬† But,¬† sooner¬† or¬† later,¬† he¬† managed¬† to¬† locate¬† them,¬† and,¬† most¬† specifically,¬† locate¬† the¬† targoblin¬† he‚Äôd¬† sworn¬† to¬† himself¬† he‚Äôd¬† kill.

¬†¬†¬†¬† But,¬† just¬† before¬† entering¬† the¬† campsite¬† where¬† the¬† targoblin¬† slept,¬† his¬† wise¬† master¬† appeared¬† from¬† out¬† of¬† the¬† shadows¬† of¬† the¬† night ¬†and¬† stopped¬† him.¬† ‚ÄúIf¬† you¬† go¬† ahead¬† and¬† kill¬† this¬† creature¬† out¬† of¬† anger,¬† feeding¬† your¬† ego¬† for¬† revenge,¬† then¬† you¬† will¬† lose¬† yourself¬† and¬† your¬† future¬† reincarnations¬† will¬† become¬† miserable,‚Ä̬† he¬† said¬† to¬† then¬† young¬† Elradon.

     As  he  calmed  down,  as  his  anger  vanished  and  he  understood,  they  retired  to  a  safe  place.  If  that  night  Elradon  would’ve  slain  the  demon  out  of  revenge,  then  his  mind  would’ve  fallen  into  the  abyss  of  darkness;  and  so,  his  consciousness  would’ve  never  carried  memories  to  his  next  reincarnation.  

Book #3 in the epic series. Coming soon…

Hi. My name is Asael (Asa) Rodriguez. I write fiction and nonfiction. But mainly I am focusing on fantasy right now. My series BENJAMIN JONES. It is about a 12-year-old orphan boy who seeks to find out about the mysterious death of his indigenous parents, but also about himself. The stories are about self-discovery and magic. Ben grows into the wisdom that we all carry magic and great love within us. We just have to discover it for ourselves.

In the stories, he also has to fight shadow creatures, necromancers, witches, etc. His journey of magic and self-discovery take him to many worlds, beginning from our world in the 1880s-1890s. He travels to other times as well. He meets friends and gods. The series just started. I am currently writing #3. If you check my website, you can find out more about it. Thanks.
