Congratulations to two of the hardest working YA authors I know, Julie Kagawa and Alex (A.R.) Kahler, on the simultaneous book birthdays of their latest individual series!

Julie’s TALON series was sold for 7-figures to Harlequin Teen and then optioned by Universal Pictures for another 7-figures. You can read what all the excitement is about (Hint: Dragon shifter teens and dragon hunters in a SoCal beachtown. Squeeeeee!) by picking up your very own copy at bookstores or online. If you don’t fall in love with Ember, Riley, Garrett and Dante, I’ll be very surprised. It’s got the fabulous cinematic writing style that Julie has become famous for. It’s going to be a movie, after all!

And A.R. Kahler’s newest Hunted series slams onto the market with its first book MARTYR. Talk about your creative worldbuilding, anguished/tortured characters, tragic LGBTQ love story, and chakra magic. You will not be disappointed by this book if you like a fascinating magic system, nonstop heart-pounding action, life-threatening battles in every chapter. And did I mention the love story? Yeah, it’s pretty much got everything.

And if you’re still not convinced, just look at these amazing covers. *pets the pretties*
