  • Julie
    This book is a master class in fantasy world-building!My official review:"A sweeping, ambitious fantasy that pulled me into a world of corruption, dark prophecy, and ultimately, hope. The breathlessly paced story and well-rendered ensemble cast gripped me until the very last pages." - Julie C. Dao, author of FOREST OF A THOUSAND LANTERNS

    I was fortunate enough to be given an advanced copy of this fantasy debut by Katy Rose Pool.There Will Come A Darkness is the first part of what promises to be a very popular epic fantasy series. In many ways it reminded me of Guy Gavriel Kay for the depth of the settings and cultures into which we enter, especially in how perspectives differ for each of the five main characters depending on their own backgrounds. This is a richly-developed world...

    I think when I requested this book, the only bit I knew about it was "the Age of Darkness approaches and five lives stand in its way". Because when I opened this book and started reading it, I was delightfully surprised. And hooked.He'd been on his own since he was eleven years old, and in that time he'd traded parts of himself — dignity, virtue, a clear conscience, if he'd ever had those things — to save the whole. He hadn't balked once.This...

    Let me start by saying that it took me literal WEEKS to read this novel. And yet, I surprisingly flew through it whenever I actually sat to read it.Maybe it was because this entire 500-page novel felt like nothing more than a very long introduction. So much happened, and yet… nothing actually happened?This book follows five different POVs. Yes, FIVE. Five seemingly unconnected people with five different goals and five different plot lines.At fi...

    Actual rating: 2.5 (rounded down... and possibly subject to change?)Once again, I am conflicted over a review! It took me a while to reorient myself with multiple POV’s. I am usually okay with that— different narrative voices— but this time around, it felt like too much. We have five main characters, and thus five POVs. I think that had the story been relegated between one to three, it would’ve been more appropriate; in the end, we’re l...

    Jude put his hand over the stone reverently. This was the last oracle stone the Prophets had ever cast. It contained their final prophecy. The prophecy that had been kept secret by the Order of the Last Light for a century. The prophecy that was still incomplete."The prophecy is unfolding," Captain Weatherbourne said. "The harbingers are here. The Age of Darkness is almost upon us. If we don't find the Last Prophet soon..." There Will Come A Dar...

    "There was nothing to be frightened of when you were the most dangerous thing that stalked the streets" This is a 5 star book that left me 1 star sad emotionally. *ARC acquired from Book Expo America* SUMMARY The Seven Prophets guided humanity until 100 years ago they suddenly disappeared. However, they left one final prophecy depicting the birth of The Last Prophet and an impending Age of Darkness. The Last Prophet would either be the key to s...

    Read with Rachel for Friends with ARCs!Pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this story. While there are a few details that either felt similar to other fantasy novels I’ve read or didn’t sit well with me, it was enjoyable on the whole (and a surprisingly quick read considering how long it is).
  • The Nerd Daily
    Originally published on The Nerd Daily | Review by Nathalie DeFeliceStories with multiple points of view can often be disorienting and hard to get through because the storytelling can feel choppy and skewed to a specific character. That is not the case in There Will Come A Darkness by Katy Rose Pool. She cultivates this stunning world with an impending age of darkness, and characters who will collide in all sorts of ways to save it, or bring abou...

    You can also read my review here:https://devouringbooks2017.wordpress....My experience with There Will Come a Darkness proved to me that certain books need to be read at the right time. The first time I tried to read this book was right after I had finished The Final Empire and I couldn’t get into it. I was burnt out and had a major book hangover. I needed something light and fast paced, so I wound up setting the book aside. I returned to it wh...
  • Boston
    Overall this book was good and entertaining, but nothing about it made me love it. Maybe it’s just my memory, but some characters felt flat and underdeveloped and weren’t memorable at all. The plot was unique and somewhat interesting, but even that fell a little flat in the end. Again, the book was entertaining and fun to read, but I probably won’t be reaching to reread it.

    I was given an ARC of There Will Come A Darkness by Fierce Reads.Now this is what you call a fantasy book! I was hooked from the beginning, because once again I am a sucker for books told in different points of view. I loved the world building and I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of people who have Graces and then the people who are Graceless. Seeing how far the Hierophant would go with his army of Witnesses to get rid of the Graces forever was i...

    So lucky I got to read an early version of this book! A fresh, intricate and beautiful new fantasy world. If you love classic epic fantasies but also hunger for a fresh take, then you'll love this book. Beautiful world building, deep and flawed and wonderful characters that will make your heart ache, and action that had me holding my breath! I cannot wait to read more in this series.
  • Colby
    I’ve been due to review this book for a couple of weeks now, but it’s taken me this long just to get my thoughts together. With five different points of view, a plot that brings them all together, and nearly five hundred pages, There Will Come a Darkness is certainly ambitious and it’s enough to throw my mind and heart all over the place before the end. I’m going to attempt to be as concise as possible because I’m not trying to write an...

    Perfect for fans of:An Ember in the Ashes, Six of Crows,Graceling, Throne of Glass, Children of Blood and Bone....I mean, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Similarly if you name enough hyped YA fantasy novels you're bound to snag a reader somewhere. Right?Writing a book from hear me: FIVE POVs is as a rule just very hard to do. And if I'm being honest there was maybe an hour there in the beginning that I was thinking, "..uh..uh ..ok.. may...

    I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. A darkness is coming to the world. One hundred years ago, the Prophets disappeared. They had one last prophecy that only The Order of the Last Light has protected. And now they believe they've found the last prophet. In this story we meet five people who become entangled and set on a collision course with the impending darkness:A prince exiled from his kingdom--HassanA ruthless ki...

    4-4.5 Stars. There Will Come a Darkness was a book I picked up on a whim and honestly, pretty good choice. Love that for me. Full RTC.

    **RE-POSTING FOR RELEASE DAY!!!!**Hassan had crouched down to Azizi's level, putting a hand on the boy's bony shoulder. "You are helping. This--getting on this ship with your mother and sister to sail to an unfamiliar land--it's just as important as what I'm doing. Just be brave. To keep out home inside your heart, right beside your hope, even when you're far away--it's one of the bravest things there is. I'm going to make Herat safe for you, Azi...
