Haven, the once bright and blessed city, has turned into a greying corpse of its former glory. Beauty has been exiled and fear has taken up pious reign over its citizens. The forests of Haven have been ravaged and decimated in an attempt to bring temporary illumination to the impending dark, but when the timber has been consumed, what will the people of this once-shining city do to light their world?

Though fear rules with hardened resolve and darkness eagerly awaits its victory; hope still remains.

Cal, a young groomsman in service to the Citadel of Haven, is one of the hopeful. A series of events orchestrated by a power greater than Cal draws him out of the city of Haven and into a tale of darkness and prophecy and legend. As his journey brings him maturity and wisdom, it also clearly outlines his quest: to seek the light.

This story begins to unravel the mysteries of the fast-darkening world of Aiénor.  Cal discovers a colony of long-lost dreamers, an ancient race of terrible and powerful birds of prey, and a remnant of forgotten people trapped for centuries underneath a mountain fortress.  The hope and promise of new light propel him onward into an expedition across the Dark Sea, where he encounters just a taste of the monstrous evil that awaits Haven when the light of the great tree is finally extinguished forever.

Reviews on Amazon

What an incredible book! I purchased “The Great Darkening” with high expectations and I wasn’t let down. The writing style is very graceful, laced with beautiful vocabulary and great description. I always appreciate a book that paints a picture and helps me visualize its settings with ease. The character development was thorough and they were very believable. (I especially liked Cal.) Triplett created a wonderful depiction of a imaginative world in the midst of a dire circumstance. I was captivated until the very end. Now I just have to wait for book 2!

I would definitely recommend to fans of C.S. Lewis and Tolkien. Triplett’s fluidity with eloquent language, a descriptive mystical world, and faith-based undertones definitely carry a light with the two incredible authors, but also bring a new emotional and exciting story to the table. – Jenni

If you are a fan of Tolkien’s Middle Earth, C.S. Lewis’ space trilogy or Chronicles of Narnia, Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle, or Ursula Le. Guin’s Earthsea Quartet, then you’ll love R.G. Triplett’s Epic of Haven. – Jan B.
