CS Pacat in conversation with Jay Kristoff


Please note: This is an online event.

Dark Rise is the first book in a brilliant YA fantasy trilogy from internationally acclaimed Australian author C. S. Pacat.

The ancient world of magic is no more. Its heroes are dead, its halls are ruins, and its great battles between Light and Dark are forgotten. Only the Stewards remember. For centuries they have kept vigil, sworn to protect humanity if the Dark King ever returns. Sixteen-year-old dock boy Will is on the run in London, pursued by the men who killed his mother. When an old servant urges him to seek out the Stewards, Will is ushered into a secret world, where he must train to fight for the Light in the oncoming war.

We are delighted to have Jay Kristoff join us to talk with C. S. Pascat about writing fantasy and acknowledging the fear that lies in us all.
