Enter the land of Ishcria, a place shrouded by darkness and lorded over by the evil Council. It is a land lacking in both peace and human nature; it kws only pain and abuse. A boy different from the rest-an orphan forced to beg on the streets-experiences a sudden change in circumstance when a mysterious League of Light opens its doors to him. Now with a group of men who bestow kindness he has never kwn, Derruth finds his true calling: to join with the League in its secret struggle against the Council and to reveal to the enslaved Ishcrian people a message of hope and truth.
Aaron Brown grew up in northern Africa with a voracious appetite for reading and writing imaginative tales. The idea for the book Darkness Illuminated had been in his head for a long time before he seriously started writing it in 2007 at the age of sixteen. Two years later, Darkness Illuminated was finished and ready for publication with more novels to follow. Aaron Brown now attends Wheaton College and is an English Writing major.
