Without a doubt, this is proving to be a big week for author Jennifer A. Nielsen. On March 3rd, her runaway hit THE FALSE PRINCE will debut at #14 on the New York Times Bestseller List. On March 1st is the official release date for THE RUNAWAY KING, the breathtaking Book #2 in the series.
And today? Today I am here to announce an entirely NEW book deal! Beginning publication in 2015 (after next year's release of the third book in the Ascendence Trilogy!), Jen Nielsen's new series will begin with THE PRAETOR WAR, set in the dark and tumultuous world of ancient Rome, and pitting a boy and his friends against a powerful hidden magic which he must learn to control—before it's too late.
The new series was again signed on by the inimitable Lisa Sandell at Scholastic Press in a three-book deal. Huge congratulations to Jen, and—mark your calendars, folks!
