There Will Come A Darkness is a unique take on the classic “chosen one” tale. With not one, but five prophesied individuals, the reader can expect multiple POVs through which the story is told. This young adult fantasy novel features excellent world building, complex characters with different ethnicities and sexual orientations, AND a developed magic system. If those elements don’t make you want to read this book immediately, there’s just one thing left to say; are the chosen ones destined to save the world, or end it? ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

Fans of Neil Gaiman will love this dark fairy tale that's filled with magic, mystery, and danger. Who is Ofelia, really? And who - or what - is the Faun? From where did he come? Complete the required quests by the next full moon, dive into the labyrinth, and find your way through walls that appear and disappear, paths that are there - and then are not - as you maddeningly descend further into the maze and unravel the mystery. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

Rob and Maegan are both outcasts in school for very different reasons. But when the two are paired up for a calculus project, they find that they're not so different. Very good read, loved the character vs society conflict for both protagonists. Love the ending plot twists! ~ Reviewed by Adelia Callear

Lady MacBeth is blazingly reimagined as a savage 16-year old SoCal girl. The St. Andrew's prep school boys messed with her, not knowing she'd return, regally, with nails like razors, blood on her lips, cruelty in her heart, and her coven always in the wings. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
