Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A book that challenges the word "powerful" and obliterates it

Written in searing prose, this is the story of two boys: Erik, who performs miracles, and Thorn, who hears voices. The book chronicles their lives as their minds devolve into hallucinations, and shows the way their worlds intersect, culminating in a final stand-off.

This debut novel offer a raw, insightful look at the forces that compel us to act against our will. Even more so, it captivates and dares us to look away, knowing full well we can't.

Advance praise for FELL OF DARK:

“Here is a book built of darkness and gleam, of raw emotion and shattering poetry, of harrowing compulsions and zero compromise. Patrick Downes possesses blazing, beautiful, terrifying talent. His characters walk the shadows. His language bursts like sky.”—Beth Kephart, National Book Award nominee and author of Small Damages

“Patrick Downes is a writer in the metamodernist style. He is utterly brilliant, and so honest and sincere it hurts.”—Martine Leavitt, National Book Award nominee for Keturah and Lord Death

 

“Luminous and pure. A masterwork of astonishing authority and beauty.”—Julie Berry, author of All the Truth Thats In Me

Review:

"This novel in diary form powerfully depicts the confusions of adolescence. Its impact cannot be denied." School Library Journal

Review:

"[This] extraordinary work for teenagers is a document of horrifying reality and literary quality." The New York Times

Synopsis:
