THERE WILL COME A DARKNESS Blog Tour: Which Character Are You?

Are you a prince, an assassin, an innocent, a gambler, or a protector?

Katy Rose Pool‘s There Will Come A Darkness mashes up action, high fantasy, magic, and prophecy, but it’s really all ruled by its impressive cast of characters.

As part of the official blog tour, Macmillan asked us to talk about our favorite character– but it’s really so hard to choose a favorite because they’re all so good! From wholesome and torn to darkly ambitious, there’s something incredible about the full spectrum you get from the five leads.

So instead, we’re going to help you figure out which character is going to be your favorite– or at the very least, which one is the most like you!

Which character are you?


  • Good at fitting in and melting into your surroundings
  • Knows how to read people
  • Lover of high stakes and a good card game
  • Social prowess aside, you’re just looking out for #1– YOU.
  • But also maybe not, because your heart is secretly gooey mush


  • Levelheaded and reasonable, because someone around here has to be
  • Collecting and crafting FTW
  • In a world of extremes, you long for a simple life
  • Earns respect through earnesty
  • Living for those “hiding a deadly secret” vibes


  • Loyal af. Maaaaaybe to a fault
  • Will undoubtedly sacrifice your soul and safety to save the (few) people you love
  • Slytherin level ambition
  • Can run, jump, and flip out of almost any situation
  • Always the best of intentions, despite the actual outcome


  • Natural born leader
  • Trying to find yourself after a major life upheaval
  • Will do ill-advised things to impress someone you like
  • Uncommon upbringing = Occasional failure to understand social cues
  • Secret royals rock your world


  • Could go on a long, completely silent, phone-free mediative retreat and actually enjoy it
  • Firm believer in destiny
  • Knew what you want to do with your life from a young age
  • Forbidden love tropes are your jam
  • Usually a health nut, but in love with the occasional extra-sugary dessert

See why we love them all so much?!
