"An enchanting and wildly clever debut, Mara's The Darkening delivers on every promise. From its storm-tossed world, to its lyrical prose, to its propulsive, electrifying plot, readers will find themselves utterly ensnared by this book--it is a true masterclass in young adult fantasy." -- Ayana Gray, New York Times-bestselling author of Beasts of Prey

"A thrilling, fast-paced adventure by an exciting new voice. Mara has crafted a brutal, richly-woven world balanced by the most lush and beautiful prose. The Darkening is a wild and thrilling ride, with twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat and an ending that'll have you begging for the sequel."
-- Adalyn Grace, New York Times bestselling author of All the Stars and Teeth
