About HONEY BEAUMONT
On Honey Beaumont's sixteenth birthday, he heard about a group of adventurers who had stopped a crime ring of highway robbers in New Texas. After sixteen years in an abusive home and then getting adopted just to become a "house-boy," Honey decided to leave his past behind and join The Adventurer's Guild. The Guild is a group of people who stand for justice and serve the commoner, as long as they can pay.
Honey wanted nothing more but to travel around the world helping people. Illiterate and ill-prepared for a war-torn world, Honey embarks on the journey of a lifetime with the Guild. With newfound skills and friends in tow, he needs to find the strength and courage to return to his abusive home and save the love of his life.
Embarking on a journey of a lifetime, being a hero is harder than Honey ever imagined, but at least he has his friends by his side to help him save the day.
Once upon a time, an unlikely hero was born out of servitude. Honey Beaumont, our hero, strived to do right by everyone and see justice prevail no matter the consequence. He dreamt of the intrepid Adventurer's Guild and helping those who can't help themselves.
Every day our hero persevered the wrath of Byron, his owner. Helping those around him doesn't fill Byron's pockets, bringing out anger in his boss. One day, Byron brutally attacks Honey after a wealthy client offers to help Honey leave the life of servitude and be free. After the attack, Honey was scarred, disfigured, and with a grudge. He begrudgingly left his home and the love of his life behind to move into a new and luxurious home.
Honey mingles amongst those in the new house and learns about the world's inequalities, especially between the nobodies and humans. But with his new owner forbidding him from being independent, Honey has no other choice but to leave this new luxurious life behind.
Freedom for Honey meant joining the Adventure's Guild, becoming a hero, and helping his family leave the horrible place he used to call home. Will Honey be strong enough to take on Byron? Only time will tell.
