'A masterful fantasy debut. Katy Rose Pool is a writer to watch' Sebastien de Castell, author of TRAITOR'S BLADE 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 they disappeared, one hundred years ago.

But they left behind 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 a dark new power begins to make war on the magically gifted, five souls are set on a collision course that will determine the fate of their world:

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 saviour or destroyer?

'Unforgettable . . . feels both utterly original and like the best of classic fantasy' Tasha Suri, author of EMPIRE OF SAND 'A well-crafted, surprising and gripping start to a new trilogy' Kirkus 'Katy Rose Pool combines lovable characters, a gorgeously tangible world and an intricate puzzle-box plot to create a story that will pull you inexorably toward the explosive end' Sarah Holland, New York Times bestselling author of EVERLESS

Reviews for There Will Come a Darkness (#1 Age of Darkness)

A masterful fantasy debut. Katy Rose Pool is a writer to watch Early buzz could hardly be louder A brilliantly woven story with compelling characters, surprising twists and a prophecy driven not by distant fate but by hard, human choices. There Will Come a Darkness was a pleasure to read and left me eager for more! The real magic of There Will Come a Darkness is in how Pool has crafted her heroes - messy, flawed and so beguilingly human. I dare you not to fall madly in love with all of them A sweeping, ambitious fantasy that pulled me into a world of corruption, dark prophecy and, ultimately, hope. The breathlessly paced story and well-rendered ensemble cast gripped me until the very last pages There Will Come a Darkness is a can't-miss debut from an exciting new talent. I defy you not to lose yourself in this vast, luscious fantasy
