Modern-day sisters discover deadly ancient magic in book 1 of this Falling Kingdoms spin-off series!

Worlds collide in this suspenseful, page-turning Falling Kingdoms spin-off series, which explores a whole new side of Mytica—and an even darker version of its magic.

Crystal Hatcher, Modern-day Toronto: It’s a normal afternoon in her father’s antique bookshop when Crys witnesses the unthinkable: her little sister Becca collapses into a coma after becoming mesmerized by a mysterious book written in an unrecognizable language.

Maddox Corso, Ancient Mytica: Maddox Corso doesn’t think much of it when he spots an unfamiliar girl in his small village. Until, that is, he realizes that she is a spirit, and he is the only one who can see or hear her. Her name is Becca Hatcher, and she needs Maddox to help get her home.

Farrell Grayson, Modern-day Toronto: Rich and aimless Farrell Grayson is thrilled when the mysterious leader of the ultra-secret Hawkspeare Society invites him into the fold. But when he learns exactly what he has to do to prove himself, Farrell starts to question everything he thought he knew about family, loyalty, and himself….

Fate has brought these young people together, but ancient magic threatens to rip them apart.

More from the Falling Kingdoms world? YES PLEASE! Normally I'm not a fan of spin off series, but I can't get enough of Morgan's Falling Kingdom series as it is. I LOVE the Falling Kingdoms series. It is one of my all time favorite YA series (you're missing out if you've not yet read it). I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this book. Check out that stunning cover. I can not wait to read this book.

Are you a fan of James Dashner's The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials? We are too! Check out the exciting news from Random House about the upcoming release of The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trails: Collector's Edition! Not only will the Collector's Edition feature both books, it will also include exclusive content. 

Here's what Random House had to say about the book's upcoming release: 

April 14th marks the publication date of THE MAZE RUNNER AND THE SCORCH TRIALS: THE COLLECTOR’S EDITION, by #1 New York Times bestselling author James Dashner. The collector’s edition is perfect for both Dashner fans, and new readers, and includes both novels, as well as exclusive content that has never before been in print. The volume includes “The Maze Runner Files”, which was originally published as an eBook short. Now accessible to all readers, “The Maze Runner Files” features top-secret information, overheard conversations, emails between WICKED employees, memos meant to be destroyed after reading, and a selection of the Gladers’ suppressed memories, all of which help fans unlock some of the mysteries behind the Maze, the Gladers, and the people who put them there. This edition also includes an exclusive fan sticker.

THE MAZE RUNNER AND THE SCORCH TRIALS: THE COLLECTOR’S EDITION will keep fans eager for the film adaptation of The Scorch Trials (coming September 18th) and will give them additional info to immerse themselves into the world of WICKED, the life of the Gladers, the scorch, and more.
