Wishlist Wednesday: There Will Come a Darkness

Wishlist Wednesday on The Candid Cover

Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool. This debut fantasy series has been compared to Six of Crows and I couldn’t be more excited for it.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read. It is a spin-off of the original meme, Waiting on Wednesday that was formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Summary (from Goodreads):

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 nations―until 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 world’s 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 them―or all of them―could break the world. Will they be savior or destroyer?

Amazon “Book Depository


I am in need of a new fantasy series to get pumped up about and I have a feeling that this is going to be it. I am intrigued by these 5 characters already. So looking forward to finding out how things will unfold.

    I’m so incredibly intrigued too! Usually various POVs or MCs are either a hit or miss for me, so I’m hoping this one will be the former 🙂 This does look super good, and the cover is to die for <3

    I’ve been seeing this one around a lot and I’m interested in giving it a go. I love the cover but it does tend to remind me of the cover of Romanov. Hope we both enjoy this one when we get to it!
