Sorry I've been out for a while, you know been psyching myself for the last Harry Potter movie.. movie marathon here, tissues everywhere.
I lost track of the time and I missed Julie Kagawa's Live Chat. Aaargh. But thankfully, the video is still up in Harlequin Teen's Facebook.
The two bombs that Julie shared are:
- Julie has a new YA series coming out in 2012 called Blood of Eden. Book 1 is titled The Immortal Rules, and it is a post-apocalyptic vampire series.
- There will be a second IRON FEY series coming out in 2012 as well, this time starring an older Ethan Chase, Meghan's brother.
And earlier, the blurb for The Iron Knight was already released. For those who haven't finished the series yet, please skip this one. Spoilers are inevitable, and I don't want to ruin it for you. Right, loveys? :)
The Iron Knight (Iron Fey #4)
by Julie Kagawa
October 25, 2011: Harlequin
"Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.
Unless he can earn a soul.
To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.
Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl— smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.
With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end— a quest to find a way to honor his solemn vow to stand by Meghan’s side.
To survive in the Iron realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.
And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice." (Goodreads)
Wow, these are some news! Such nice thoughts to help cheer us up post-last-potter-movie-depression? I certainly think so.
Thanks to Harlequin and Julie Kagawa! :)
