After continuing to be a top figure in young adult fiction, Sarah J. Maas has just announced that she will be publishing an adult fantasy series. As a fan of Maas’ writing I am super excited for this new series.
Maas announced her news yesterday, May 16th, via Instagram and Entertainment Weekly post. Within the post she mentioned that the series is near and dear to her as she has been working on it for several years. For fans of her YA series she offers assurances, “good friends with Aelin and Feyre” (Entertainment Weekly)
I, for one, cannot wait to see where this series goes. Maas mentions that it is similar to the worlds of her previous series, but with an updated setting featuring technology. I am definitely intrigued by this description. Though we don’t know a lot about the series we do know that the story will follow a female, half-human, half-Sidhe protagonist, Bryce Equinlan, who is out for revenge after her best friend is murdered.
One of the reasons I am greatly looking forward to this novel is because of Maas’ writing style. Personally, I believe that her writing and her voice lends itself more to an adult audience. She definitely pushes the boundaries in YA, so I’m excited to see what she can do when those boundaries are eliminated. I am super excited for this series. 2019 can’t come fast enough!
What do you think of the announcement? Will you be pre-ordering this novel?
