The Darkness Within : ACT I: A Heel Turn
Witness the origins of a new legend: The Dark Hero What if you woke up one day and found out you had a superhuman agility? Would you keep it a secret? Tell everyone you know? The world?...How would you use this discovery? As something good and noble? Or narcissistic and evil? Brody Edwards has always believed himself to be a regular guy, and a hopeless romantic; despite a darkness looming inside of him, keeping secrets. After having his heart shattered for the final time, Brody is introduced to that very darkness, and together, they make a life changing discovery! In a world getting suffocatingly darker, including his own, can Brody find enough light in him to dance that fine line between moral responsibility and sociopathic recklessness? Or will he become lost to the darkness within for failing to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes, and helping the world burn instead? A fascist cloud hovers in the distance, bringing with it a police state, and it threatens to manifest itself into a dystopia only seen in nightmares of the imagination... Act 1: A Heel Turn is the first of 5 acts in The Darkness Within; the first of the Dark Hero Saga. It contains adult language and content, brief sexuality, drug use, and violence, and is intended for a mature audience.

About Macly Phoenix
Macly Phoenix is the pseudonym of Matt Acly. He has been writing stories ever since he was a little kid, and after years of stepping away from it, returned to the writing scene in 2014 by launching his own blog; in it containing The Darkness Within, Acts 1-3, in flash fiction form. Since then, he has added to his resume by briefly writing for a few different non fiction publications, but has since stopped and is concentrated fully into the fiction world, and his own online publishing company: Burning Suns Fiction Publishing Company. The Darkness Within is no longer a flash fiction mini series story hidden away on a blog, it now has hit the market, first as an eBook, and now in paperback. More titles will be coming in the short future. Remember the name Macly Phoenix. It's the name of the next great American fiction author...
