Two of our favorite authors. Two fabulous new books. And there is no party more fun than a YA launch party

Fans of Sabaa Tahir's beloved Ember Quartet rejoice - the wait is finally over. We are celebrating the highly anticipated The Reaper at the Gates and couldn’t be more excited.  

Booklist, in a starred review, called it, “ another compelling story that defies readers to stop turning the pages.” and described the series  as “A setting inspired by ancient Rome; a fierce battle for freedom in the face of tyranny; and a villain who makes Cersei Lannister and Dolores Umbridge look like a pair of pathetic amateurs.”

And for fans of Renee Ahdieh's New York Times bestselling The Wrath and the Dawn, The Rose and the Dagger, and Flame in the Mist - it's time to celebrate. Her new book, Smoke in the Sun, is the eagerly awaited sequel to Flame in the Mist, a sweeping, action-packed adventure set against the backdrop of Feudal Japan where Mulan meets Throne of Glass.

“Rich in magical realism and cultural nuance of feudal Japan, Ahdieh’s series starter begins with a girl-power bang. . . . A wonderful choice for YA shelves, especially where lush fantasy is popular.”—School Library Journal

Doesn't get better than this!
