    Cool I'm in the dark about a dark children's book

    I just wanted to know- I'm writing a book which I would like to get published as children's fantasy. It has great characters and has a great plot, but without giving too much away, the problem is that it dwells HEAVILY on 'death theories' of mine and people 'meddling' with dark things... it has a lot of really dark themes-- it's not horrific or anything, just... 'dark'. My question, though, is do you suppose a book with a lot of 'deathly' things would pass as a book for children aged 10-15? I mean, hey, Potter was pretty dark too, with all the Horcruxes and all that, but I'd just like to hear from you: Is a book which is HEAVILY about death and all that appropriate for the age group I mentioned? Thank you.
