Monday Book Recommendation: By Darkness Hid

By Darkness Hid

I’ve decided that two days a week on my blog isn’t really cutting it. It allows me to be a little lazy. My Goodreads also informs me that I am three books behind so I plan on catching up and flying past so that I am three books ahead. Hence my Monday Book Recommendations weekly posts, where I recommend a book to you and take in book requests. I’ve started already on my Tumblr account (yes I have Tumblr, don’t judge me haha) so feel free to follow me here and there for updates. Let’s also not forget that every book I recommend or receive as recommendation, I add to my Goodreads book list.

Let’s jump right in to it with the first book recommendation of the month:

By Darkness Hid

Written by Jill Williamson

Given the chance to train as a squire, kitchen servant Achan Cham hopes to pull himself out of his pitiful life and become a Kingsguard Knight. When Achan’s owner learns of his training, he forces Achan to spar with the Crown Prince–more of a death sentence than an honor. Meanwhile, strange voices in Achan’s head cause him to fear he’s going mad. While escorting the prince to a council presentation, their convoy is attacked. Achan is wounded and arrested, but escapes from prison–only to discover a secret about himself he never believed possible.

Jill Williamson is a chocolate loving, daydreaming, creator of kingdoms and the award-winning author of several young adult books including By Darkness Hid, Replication, The New Recruit, and Captives. She got into writing one day when someone was complaining about teen books and she thought, “I could do that! How hard could it be?” Very, she soon learned. But she worked hard, and four years later, her first book, By Darkness Hid, was published and won several awards.

Jill is a Whovian, a Photoshop addict, and a recovering fashion design assistant, who was raised in Alaska. She loves teaching about writing, which she does weekly at She lives in Oregon with her husband, two children, and a whole lot of deer. Visit her online at, where adventure comes to life.
