You may remember me fangirlying over Gemma Malley’s The Declaration and The Resistance, which are further evidence that YA futuristic should be the hottest genre around. Good news is that a third novel is due out early 2010:
Bloomsbury (UK: 1st February 2010)
What happens when your past begins to catch up with you and you don’t like what you see? Will Hodge’s life is a tragic disaster. His mother is dead. He has no friends. And now he thinks he is being followed by a strange group of people who tell him they know him. But Will cannot remember them at all…that is, at first he can’t. And when he does, he doesn’t much like what he can remember. While he is struggling with these unsettling memories, he learns that his past is a lot deeper than that of many other people. He must find out if he is strong enough to handle the implications of this and to break the powerful hold that his history seems to have on him.
Also, Gollancz has bought UK (and hopefully Australian) rights for Jeaniene Frost’s first three Night Huntress novels and Caitlin Kittredge’s first three Nocturne City novels. Look for them in 2010:
Jeaniene Frost: Halfway to the Grave (14th January 2010); One Foot in the Grave (11th February 2010); At Grave’s End (11th March 2010)
Caitlin Kittredge: Night Life (10th June 2010); Pure Blood (8th July 2010); Second Skin (12th August 2010)
