There Will Come a Darkness
There Will Come a Darkness | Katy Rose Pool
Leigh Bardugo's Six of Crows meets Kristin Cashore's Graceling, with a dash of Winter is Coming, in this showstopping debut YA fantasy! "I dare you not to fall madly in love with these characters. Laura Sebastian, New York Times bestselling author of Ash Princess 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 nationsuntil 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 worlds 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 themor all of themcould 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.

It's winter-y out there today so I'm stretched on my comfy spot and trying to get one more book in before it's officially December.

Fairly well developed plot, original and interesting world building, and intriguing characters.

Unfortunately the writing was a tad dry and the book lacked atmosphere, so the world building wasn‘t as vivid and the characters fell a tad flat and distant, despite the creativity that went into crafting each one of them and how they fit within the world and with each other.

Still an interesting storyline and I‘m hopeful for the next book.

3.5 / 5 ⭐ I enjoyed this book although I was more interested in some characters' stories than others. Chapters following characters I was less invested in dragged for me. But I really enjoyed the way it came together in the end and am lookjng forward to the next book. Also got slight 'Six of Crows' vibes initially, which helped draw me in because I love that series.

In true me fashion, I am cheating on my book with a much younger, much shinier model. What can I say? I have committment issues 🤷‍♀️

I'm not sure what I'll be snacking on this weekend but look at that stack 😍

Going to work on trying to finish up some books I've already started. I've also got The Chosen and The Electric Heir on ebook and House of Salt and Sorrows on audio in process so I have lots of options!

Now is this book mindbogglingly unique and blew me out of the water? No but it's a solid YA fantasy and I'm rather impressed this is a debut. I think the characters can be more fleshed out (and I assume this will come in the series) but I had no issue keeping them all separate. I liked that they all had their own stories which began braiding together. The conclusion seemed very epic and cinematic to me and I am so excited for the sequel

Today was both a #bookhaul & a #libraryhaul day. This one finally arrived from Booktopia.com.au after a month, the warehouse is only 20mins away! I don‘t know what‘s happening with them, but their delivery times suck lately. This book falls under my #Scareathlon theme of #TeamSlaughter coz there‘s a killer called Pale Hand stalking the MC‘s 1 point #PointsTotal-28

75% through this book, and I‘m bailing on it. The characters just keeping pissing me off by doing the dumbest things. We‘re talking out-of-character things. It‘s all the more frustrating because I love the diversity. I also like the setting, the backstories, and Pool‘s writing style. I just can‘t with these characters.

I‘m 3/4 of the way through this book, & I‘m close to bailing. All the guys in this book are idiots. Jude‘s decision to throw his lot into Anton‘s card game to bail on his duties as Keeper and chase Hector makes no sense whatsoever. 🙄 This is clearly plot moving character, and if it‘s not, then Jude deserves to be a failure. This is the advantage to audiobooks, because I can roll my eyes repeatedly without losing pace.

Ahhh, that “new book” smell. Such a smelly kind of smell. The smelly kind of smell that you just can‘t stop smelling 😁📚 I am so excited to read this one. The reviews are pretty good on Goodreads.

bookladyreads I just received notification this afternoon from one of my libraries that this book was now available for pickup. And I just placed a hold on it last week. 3mo
MizzGraham @bookladyreads I would love to know your thoughts on it :) 3mo
bookladyreads @MizzGraham Me too! Hahaha. I've already heard a lot of mixed reviews on Booktube, but I can't wait to read it for myself. 3mo

Been listening to this on audiobook. The buzz has been deafening for TWCAD, but while I‘m more than halfway through it, it isn‘t lighting my fire. Technically, it does all it should & does it well. I think I‘m just burned out on traditional, epic fantasy. I‘d enjoy the book more if it focused more on Ephyra & Anton. Jude constantly giving Hector a pass because he‘s crushing on him is getting real old and makes it difficult to like either of them.

I wanted to take the boys something g so I took them each a Pop. And while I was at BN I picked up a few books. The two YA books were 1/2 off and the kids one was not. But it sure looks fun.

I haven‘t been reading a lot of physical books since I went back to school but I‘m enjoying this one slowly. I commute pretty far so most of my reading includes audiobooks. I know this book just released this month and I‘m hoping it will live up to the hype! #currentlyreading

chaoticgoodhufflepuff This book has been seriously tempting me! I hope you enjoy it! 3mo
