#FridayFeature There Will Come A Darkness by Katy Rose Pool

This week’s book is a new release that i picked up last week. I didn’t know much of if when i picked it up, only that it’s pretty popular and that it’s one of my favorite genres: fantasy. Seems interesting but I probably wont be reading it until after Halloween. I just have way too many other books lined up. Right now, I’m still reading Wildcat and Moby Dick & I have a few books due for review.

FEATURE FRIDAY


In the moonlit room overlooking the City of Faith, a priest knelt before Ephyra and begged for his life.
“Please,” he said. “I don’t deserve to die. Please. I won’t touch them anymore, I swear. Have mercy.” First Line

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? Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Children of Blood and Bone, and An Ember in the Ashes.

Anton had done bad things before—ruthless things, selfish things—and while guilt always followed, it was never enough to stop him from doing such things again. Page 56

QUESTION OF THE WEEK


Have you ever wished that there were official government bookish holidays, and that, by law, employers HAD to give their workers a paid day off? If so, what kind of bookish holiday would you like to have?

No…I haven’t ever had this thought before, but I’m thinking about it now & yes, i def want this holiday. World Literacy Day? This is on September 8th. I think this is a great day to have a paid holiday. The weather is cooling off (or warming up for you southies) so it would seem like the perfect time of year. How can we make this happened?

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.

    Oh boy, that beginning and 56 sounds epic!! I better go look for it on GR. 🙂 I went to BL and realized I already started following you. Not sure why it didn’t come into my feed, but glad I saw it this morning. Happy weekend!

    Happy Friday! The book I’m featuring on my blog this week is a nonfiction by Ariniko O’Meara, A City Saunter Story. Here’s the first line to Chapter 40: “Whatever you do, don’t walk Baker Street!” I read the message three times. As much as I knew my friend meant well, I felt she wasn’t fully grasping my project.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    There Will Come A Darkness sounds amazing! I’ve not heard of this one before now but I’ll be sure to keep my eyes open for it!

    I wouldn’t want a bookish holiday. I love books and reading and promoting literacy is so important but I fail to see what a paid work day to just read would achieve… I mean, I’m a reader and I’d probably spend it watching Netflix because I’m a fickle beast who wouldn’t want to read when expected to!

    Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson. I’m currently reading Freedom’s Kiss by Sarah Monzon. I’m just starting chapter 29, so I’ll share the first line from there.

    “Florida, 1832
    Winnie felt like a cow being led to slaughter, just waiting her turn to stand before the butcher with a club in his hand.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time. 🙂❤📖

    Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Least Expected” by Autumn Macarthur:

    “Maggie Golding ran her fingers through her multi-coloured hair, planted her hands on her hips, and took a step back to examine the latest window display she’d created for Pettett and Mayfields London department store.”
