In Bookish News, Michelle Rowen (Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide, Dark Kiss, Wicked Kiss) has closed a three-book deal for a high-fantasy series with Razorbill, which will be published under her pen-name Morgan Rhodes. The series will be a spin-off of the Falling Kingdoms books, and the first one will be called A Book of Spirits and Thieves. It will follow two sisters who, in modern-day Toronto, get their hands on an unreadable book after it’s delivered to their father’s antiquarian bookstore. The book, Razorbill explained, “provides a portal to a faraway world rich with valuable magic,” and is sought by a secret society that will stop at nothing to retrieve it.
The third book in Mira Grant’s Parasitology trilogy will be called Chimera! This series consists of Parasite (2013), Symbiont (2014), and Chimera (2015).
