The Prince of Nothing Book Club: The Darkness that Comes Before Part One
The Second Apocalypse is a projected nine-book series comprised of three separate-but-connected trilogies by R. Scott Bakker. The first of those trilogies is The Prince of Nothing, which opens with the first book in our book club, The Darkness that Comes Before.
For our first installment of this club we’ll start a bit on the slow side. By next Monday let’s read the prologue, and chapters one and two. Depending on how this goes we may pick up the pace going forward. But I want to start slow and ease our way into Bakker’s world, which is rich with history with a cast of characters both past and present at once fascinating and daunting.
Besides, some of us are trying to write a novel, so November may be a bit slow reading-wise.
Sound good? Any show of hands of who might be joining us?
