'A masterful fantasy debut' Sebastien de Castell'A can't miss debut from an exciting new talent' Kiersten WhiteTHE AGE OF DARKNESS APPROACHES.

FIVE LIVES STAND IN ITS WAY. For generations, the Seven Prophets guided humanity - until they disappeared, one hundred years ago. They left behind a 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 a dark new power rises, five souls are set on a collision course that will determine the fate of their world:A prince exiled from his kingdomA ruthless killer known as the Pale HandA once-faithful leader torn between his duty and his heartA reckless gambler with the power to find anything or anyoneAnd a dying girl on the verge of giving upOne of them - or all of them - could break the world.
