Becoming Faust by J.R Sutton
It’s like the Devil’s Advocate and Constantine meets Fifty Shades, but with a good plot.
Wealth, fame, sex. Three different words but all share the same meaning, power. Bastian James Faust possesses all three. The City of Sin never sleeps, nor do the wicked. Journalist Atiana Halifax is about to discover this first hand when she steps into the sinful world of the famed mogul.
A veil of darkness has slowly begun to shadow out the world, and the age-old battle of good versus evil has moved to a new playing field, Earth. The savage and the exiled that were forced into hiding by the light have re-emerged with the cover of night to reclaim the Earth that once was theirs. All appears bleak and lost until the fate of the world is heavily, and unexpectedly placed into the hands of a ballsy Las Vegas journalist named Atiana Halifax. Atiana embarks upon a visual journey that leads her into the sultry world and tormented past of one of the richest, most powerful men alive, Bastian James Faust, in hopes of finding the answer of how to bring back light. Can Atiana save the human race from genocide before it’s too late, and save herself from being drawn into the mysterious, sensual allure that is Bastian James?
Along Atiana’s dangerous journey, she is introduced to a collection of different characters, and supernatural beings that expose her to a world, and culture long ignored and unseen by the human race. Some are there to aid her in her quest, and others have been sent to stop her at any cost. As Atiana delves deeper into the methodical, provocative mind, and life of Bastian James Faust, she discovers more than she expected, sympathy for the Devil.
