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.

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.
