We are absolutely thrilled to be launching Katy Rose Poole’s showstopping “can’t miss” debut, There Will Come a Darkness, an epic fantasy trilogy that explores everything from ancient history to apocalyptic prophecies to fraught sibling relationships. It’s the book everyone is raving about: “Early buzz could not be louder” Entertainment Weekly

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. With chaos on the horizon, 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?

After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in history, Katy Rose Pool spent a few years building websites by day and dreaming up prophecies by night. There Will Come a Darkness is her first novel. She will be chatting with Tara Sim, author of the author of the Timekeeper series.

Come celebrate with us.
