There Will Come A Darkness
Author: Katy Rose Pool
Publisher: Henry Holt BFYR
Release Date: September 3, 2019
Synopsis: The Age of Darkness approaches.
Five lives stand in its way.
Who will stop it… or unleash it?
For generations, the Seven Prophets guided humanity. Using their visions of the future, they ended wars and united nations―until the day, one hundred years ago, when the Prophets disappeared.
All they left behind was one final, secret prophecy, foretelling an Age of Darkness and the birth of a new Prophet who could be the world’s salvation…or the cause of its destruction. As chaos takes hold, five souls are set on a collision course:
A prince exiled from his kingdom.
A ruthless killer known as the Pale Hand.
A once-faithful leader torn between his duty and his heart.
A reckless gambler with the power to find anything or anyone.
And a dying girl on the verge of giving up.
One of them―or all of them―could break the world. Will they be savior or destroyer? Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Children of Blood and Bone, and An Ember in the Ashes.
Secret prophecy? Age of Darkness? CHOSEN ONE OR ONES WHO COULD SAVE OR DESTROY THE WORLD? Um…yes, please? This sounds like the kind of story that I swoon over. A lot of the early reviews I’ve read say that the world-building is fantastic and that is always a massive plus for me. I’m also super here for the ensemble cast of characters. I am particularly interested in meet the reckless gambler and the dying girl.
Pardon me while I go pre-order this beauty…
