The Undelightened
About the Book

Leam Holt’s eighteenth birthday tomorrow caps the most depressing year of his life, marking the anniversary of his failed delightenment—the soul-darkening, magic-bestowing rite of passage that should’ve launched him into the fight between Darkness and Light. Making things worse, Leam’s insufferable brother, Zach, the pride of the family, is set to delighten in a few short hours. When Gideon, the evil leader of Darkness, arrives to preside over Zach’s ceremony, the course of Leam’s life takes a drastic turn. Rather than fading farther into the background, Leam is ordered to undergo a series of brutal trials. Vast magical power is suddenly within Leam’s grasp if he triumphs, but Leam can’t seem to stay away from a beautiful girl of Light, and his testing is yielding disturbing results. As Leam begins to uncover secrets on both sides of the war, he realizes the fate of humanity is at stake, and he may have the most to lose in the fight.

About the Author
Bentz Deyo

Hey I'm Bentz (sorry but 3rd person bio is weird). I've lived in Jersey my whole life and spend my time writing and running-- that's when most of my ideas come to me.

The Undelightened Series is a contemporary young adult fantasy that follows Leam Holt, an outcast in both the real and magical world, whose recent failure may turn out to be his greatest asset.

Book 2, The Unleashed is out now. I'm currently working on Book 3 of the 5 part series.
