A being of solidified light, born to a barren couple, with the assistance of the famed Dr. Bearlight, a fertility expert and a mystic, who introduces them to the “Singularity of thought” and a new reproductive process called “Aurafusion”.
The Dr. disappears at the completion of the unusual conception, and imparts the new born child with unfathomable abilities.
Glenda, a Nano technology expert, and Osiris, a Parapsychology researcher, embark on a mission to scientifically validate paranormal, and supernatural claims, thus, setting the stage for mankind’s warm welcome of their son’s eventual emergence into the world scene.
The story takes place in New York City during the early 90’s and reaches it crescendo during the Christmas holiday season of 2012. As one wondrous event follows another in an incredible pace, the final battle between good and evil stunningly unfolds, while earth existence and humanity’s own survival hangs in the balance.

I read a lot of paranormal/ sciFi/fantasy books, so this is a genre I’m familiar with. I’d never read anything from B.E. Starlight before, but the premise seemed really interesting. I was very intrigued with the opening pages and how B.E. Starlight set the tone right off the bad, and I knew right away this book would be different from the rest. I’m always on the lookout for fresh new talent, so I was curious to see how he would deliver in this one “Auraman: The Beginning”. I was totally blown away with how awesomely weird and innovative it was, and that is not an easy thing to do! Mr. Starlight is unarguably a very talented writer, but more than that he genuinely impressed me with the thorough world-building of this new type of superhero in Auraman/Aura’el …. and the creativeness and depth on several levels with all the characters (Aura’el, Annette, even Alfonso) and their interactions. All too often I read works that feel clearly derivative of other books, and although I appreciate literary influences (as is mildly felt here as well as this IS a ‘Superhero” tale after all), Starlight was still able to cast this story in a new ‘light’ to give it a very unique feel – a blend of science, supernatural/paranormal, action, relationships, philosophy, social and cultural commentary…etc, and make it unlike anything I’ve read. I liked how descriptive and intense it all was, and for such a long book I finished it in less than three nights. The ending is bittersweet but very fitting… I hope it leaves the door open for more because I’d love to read it! I recommend it for fans of superhero/action/fantasy/sci-fi.
I really enjoyed “Auraman: The Beginning” by author B. E. Starlight, even though fantasy & sci-fi isn’t usually one of my more preferred genres (don’t dislike it, just don’t generally gravitate). But I liked the sample and the style of Mr. Starlight’s writing…. This felt more like a unique character-drama (under very strange, fantastical circumstances) to me than anything, so I gave it a shot. I was really impressed! I really liked the world and characters he created here and the roles with the different characters and their function in society/the world. It is SO much more than just ‘good vs evil’/ “right vs wrong’ cliché super-hero tale, but looking at humans and world and its mechanisms in a whole new way that I haven’t experienced before – feel very spiritual and profound in a way, and the idea of ‘aura’ isn’t one I’ve read much about before… but the way the book is written it makes sense… very easy to grasp the complex (and important!) ideas that Starlight puts forth, and the result is an impressively crafted story that in unpredictable and engaging. Has sort of a ‘surreal’ vibe that I really liked, and the narrative prose was really strong. The pace is great, and for the most part the editing was good. Lots of characters – some whom we get to understand better than others, but I thought that Mr. Starlight did a great job with them and making them more ‘creative’ than just the standard figures we normally see (loved Alfonso even though he is bad). One thing I really liked was how frequently I was surprised at some things that happened – this isn’t some generic, predictable tale but something new and visionary (pun intended). Emotionally engaging and with lots of intelligent action, some admittedly over my head. But an entertaining ride that also makes you think outside the box. Hope to read more from Starlight soon! Recommend for fans of paranormal sci/fi
