New Sci-Fi Series for Teens – “Les Mis in Space!”

16 August, 2017 | Comments Off

Exciting news! I’m co-writing a new sci-fi series for teens with the amazing and bestselling author Jessica Brody. The series is called System Divine, and it’s a futuristic retelling of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo – one of the best novels ever, in my opinion! The first book (coming out in Spring 2019 with Simon Pulse/Simon and Schuster) will be called A SKY WITHOUT STARS. The second book, BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS will release in Spring 2020.

Here’s the deal announcement:

Nicole Ellul at Simon Pulse has bought, in a six-figure deal, A Sky Without Stars and Between Burning Worlds, the first two books in the System Divine Series by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell. The sci-fi novels, billed as Les Misérables meets The Lunar Chronicles, are set on the French planet-colony of Laterre, where the fates of three teens from very different backgrounds intertwine amid the looming threat of revolution. Publication is slated for spring 2019 and spring 2020; Jim McCarthy at Dystel, Goderich & Bourret negotiated the deal for world rights.
