Transfixing and Twisty: bestselling YA author of 'Everless' announces upcoming book

Transfixing and Twisty: bestselling YA author of 'Everless' announces upcoming book

Sara Holland’s YA fantasy novel Everless and its sequel, Evermore, skyrocketed to the top of bestsellers lists last year and is currently in development for TV. But the YA author has barely paused for breath, recently announcing her highly anticipated new book Havenfall, a ‘lush, gothic fantasy.’

Havenfall chronicles the story of Maddie, who spends summers at the novel’s namesake setting, a once-resplendent inn located deep in the Rocky Mountains and owned by Maddie’s uncle. Havenfall has also long-served as a neutral territory that links magical realms but that peaceful status is disrupted by a shocking murder that will force Maddie to confront dark truths about her family.

 ‘Havenfall is a genius mash-up of the real world and fantasy,’ says publisher, Bloomsbury Children’s Books. ‘Maddie is a grounded, ‘every-girl’ teenager trying to deal with her non-traditional family and not fall for the one person she shouldn’t be with, and Sara takes this very relatable, issue-based narrative and spins it with fantastical elements, other-world secrets, and scary, please-turn-on-the-lights creatures […] I’m thrilled to be welcoming Sara to our YA list and publishing such an inventive, exciting new series.’

Havenfall is scheduled for publication in 2020.
