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
