They think he's their pawn…
…but playing the game is part of Blake's plan.
At just sixteen years old, Blake is lost without The Order's guidance—and The Order hopes he'll become their secret weapon in the fight against injustice.
The Order always gets what it wants, but Quinn—now known as the superhero Blue Spekter—refuses to step aside and thwarts their nefarious plans.
Can The Order—through Blake—persuade Quinn to drop the superhero act and join him in the real fight against crime?
More importantly, how long does Blake have until The Order discovers what he's really after?
THE RISE OF DARK FLAME is the third book of The Guardian Series and is part of the Spekter Superhero Universe.
Get it now.
Alienated best friends Quinn McAlester and Blake Hargreaves silently pass one another in the hallways of Portsmouth High School, no longer trading friendly glances or warm smiles, all thanks to Agent Victor Kraze, the man who succeeded in tearing them apart and beguiling Blake to join The Order, a secret organization with evil motives and controversial goals.
Every day, uncelebrated superhero Quinn masquerades as an ordinary teenager at home, work, and at school, hanging out with his dads, close friends, and his boyfriend, Keegan while helplessly watching Blake change into someone he no longer recognizes. In secret, he rescues people in danger as the city’s unsung superhero while evading the Department of Homeland Security’s attempts to capture him. As time passes, he forges new alliances that will help him take down The Order.
Having run away from home to accept the welcoming arms of the luxury life Victor has offered him, Blake embraces every opportunity to accompany The Order’s agents on close-to-home missions that challenge him in ways he never expected. When Blake begins showing signs of erratic and threatening behavior, Victor realizes he must accelerate his plans to keep Blake engaged in the Order’s new objectives or risk everything he has worked to build.
When city officials realize a second, more menacing super-powered being has arrived, they are forced to reach out to the hero they hunted and ostracized and trust their blue superhero will protect their city from certain doom before it’s too late.
