We are absolutely thrilled to be launching As the Shadow Rises, Katy Rose Pool’s sequel to the critically-acclaimed, action packed epic fantasy There Will Come a Darkness, that explores everything from ancient history to apocalyptic prophecies to fraught sibling relationships.

The Last Prophet has been found, yet he sees destruction ahead. In this sequel, kingdoms have begun to fall to a doomsday cult, the magical Graced are being persecuted, and an ancient power threatens to break free. But with the world hurtling toward its prophesized end, Anton’s haunting vision reveals the dangerous beginnings of a plan to stop the Age of Darkness.

There Will Come a Darkness is a Morris Award Finalist for best debut young adult novel, it garnered four starred reviews, and was a 2019 Kirkus Best Book of the Year


* “Adventurous relic-hunting, mind-blowing twists, budding love, and terrible betrayals feature in this multiple-narrator, character-driven study of power, agency, and identity and the ways these are affected by the interwoven threads of both history and legend.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Katy will be chatting with Laura Sebastian, author of Ash Princess series, and we couldn’t be more excited. Join these two incredible writers as they celebrate As the Shadow Rises and epic fantasy in general We can’t wait.
