There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool is a darker YA Fantasy out now!
“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.”
If you love darker stories set in a YA Fantasy world, you may want to pick this one up next!
In this story we follow multiple characters as they venture though a unique, magical world. They are all diverse and eventually come together bringing down the darkness. This is a densely character-driven plot, so if you aren’t a fan of these types of stories, you may want to set it aside.
Like with most multiple-POV stories, there were a few that weren’t as exciting to read, so I did find moments were I was mostly skimming through until I can get to the more interesting POVs.
Overall, I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars. It’s definitely a world full of dark corners and dense content, so if you love reading these vibes, pick it up!
