When Darkness Begins book launch: May 28, 2020

WDB_Cover_look.jpgWhen Darkness Begins will launch May 28, 2020.

A unique, time-bending, coming-of-age story filled with blood, time-blindness, foes, and first loves.

I’m working on the back of the book copy in the evenings. YA dark fantasy +16. It’s a little complex and mature, not your normal high-school YA. The image is obviously an iStock photo for the look and feel for the cover. Below is the copy I’m landing on to describe it. Thoughts?

At the dawn of mankind, the Vechey lurk as time-guardians protecting the world from their incessant foes who would destroy time and all in it—if only for a brief euphoric glimpse of the universe’s collapse. To earn their place as time-guardians Aithagg and Catha, along with the other teens, must survive an ancient ritual shrouded in mystery. Only the strong survive—or the clever.

Catha has not developed the time-slipping skills needed to survive the deadly ritual. Can Aithagg devise a way to help his first love survive or does Eterili, the clan leader who is self-proclaimed to be—literally—as old as dirt, have other plans for them? After all, the universe is hers and she wields it to her liking.

A unique, time-bending, coming-of-age story filled with blood, time-blindness, foes, and first loves.

 

It is the prequel to Absolute Darkness, an origin story. However, it is written to connect to Absolute Darkness without the reader having read the first book yet. Absolute Darkness is NOT YA.
