"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." --Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of And I Darken

"One of the most stunning debuts of the year." --Seventeen

"Even in a world filled with graces and prophets, 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." --Laura Sebastian, New York Times bestselling author of Ash Princess

* "Pool accomplishes a masterful balance of exposition, action, and characterization . . . full of genuinely surprising and interesting twists that will have readers anxious to get to the last page. [F]ans of Bardugo's Six of Crows will notice similarities between the narrative styles. [R]omance readers will revel in the beginnings of a few steamy relationships (one straight, one queer)." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, STARRED review

* "A well-crafted, surprising, and gripping start to a new trilogy." --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review

* "[S]et apart by its immersive worldbuilding and compelling narrators." --Shelf Awareness, STARRED review

* "[T]his inventive, gripping novel's narrative drive remains strong thanks to its high stakes, abundant action, and realistic romances both gay and straight." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"A sweeping, ambitious fantasy that pulled me into a world of corruption, dark prophecy, and ultimately, hope. [G]ripped me until the very last pages." --Julie C. Dao, author of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns

"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." --Sara Holland, New York Times bestselling author of Everless

"A beautiful woven fantasy of prophecy, intrigue and unforgettable characters. There Will Come a Darkness feels both utterly original and like the best of classic fantasy" --Tasha Suri, author of Empire of Sand

"Reading this intricate YA fantasy, you get the feeling Katy Rose Pool's plot is always seven steps ahead of you. You'll want to catch up as quickly as possible." --Refinery 29
