Dark Rise is the latest novel from the author of the bestselling YA trilogy Captive Prince, and it is the first in what is already shaping up to be an un-put-downable new series.
Sixteen-year-old dock boy Will is on the run, pursued by the men who killed his mother. When an old servant tells him of his destiny to fight beside the Stewards, Will is ushered into a world of magic, where he must train to play a vital role in the oncoming battle against the Dark.
In this Story Session, C.S. Pacat talks about their writing process and reads the first chapter of Dark Rise.
