The Drowned Cities
Shipbreaker Companion Novel
by Paolo Bacagalupi
Little, Brown for Young Readers

"’s more of a companion novel rather than a sequel. It’s set in the same world, but Tool is the only character who overlaps, and the thematic focus is very different.  The story is set in a place called the Drowned Cities, and focuses on a sister and brother pair who have been orphaned by war. At least, that’s what I think it’s about.  We’ll see if it’s still about that when I reach the end...." --Paolo Bacagalupi interview on School Library Journal.

In the Forests of the Night
Goblin Wars Book Two
by Kersten Hamilton
" is much darker and much scarier. Finn and Tea have a long way to go before they can finally rest. But I think you’re going to love it." -- interview with Kersten Hamilton at Electrifying Reviews.

Magic In Season
Leland Sisters Book Three
by Marissa Doyle
Henry Holt & Co.
A young witch must overcome physical and emotional scars while investigating who is attempting to assassinate members of the British War Cabinet, including her father, in 1814-1815.

It's spring 1814 and the girls of England are rejoicing: Napoleon has been defeated and the young men of the army can come home again--just in time for the balls and parties of the Season!

18-year-old Lady Sophie Rosier can't quite join in their glee. What young man will fall for a cripple who must walk with a cane, no matter how pretty and well-born she is? And then there's that small matter of her being a witch...but she certainly isn't about to advertise that fact. Why, oh why, couldn't she just be like everyone else?

Then to her surprise she gains a very eligible suitor in Lord Woodbridge. But does he love her, or just feel sorry for her? And why, now that the War is over, is somebody doing their best to kill off members of the War Office, including Sophie's father? Only Sophie and her new best friend Parthenope (Persy and Pen's mother) can find out...because only they know that the assassin is using magic. And it looks like Sophie might be next on their list..
