'Will ensnare you from the first page' Chloe Gong on The Darkening

Vesper Vale sacrificed everything to save her city from the cursed storm. But when she awakens from three years of slumber as a vessel of The Great Queen, she finds her home beset by sinister forces.

The Great King and his army of lightstruck - once regular citizens who are now controlled by an ominous light - have besieged the city. And the people are looking to Vesper, revered as a goddess after her sacrifice, as their only hope.

As she fights to rescue them, Vesper faces a growing chasm between her and Dalca, the prince she swore never to love. Haunted by the guilt of their choices and faced with the pressures of a city near ruin, Vesper and Dalca find themselves torn between the growing factions within the city and the royal court.

But in order to save her city from the light, Vesper must face the power most outside of her control - the goddess within.
