I have exciting news for all of you! Danielle Jensen, author of the Malediction Trilogy, is returning to the land of Trollus with a brand-new prequel called The Broken Ones. And I have to say, it looks pretty awesome.
Below Forsaken Mountain, a revolution stirs with the aim to overthrow the tyrant king of Trollus, and Marc is the right hand of its leader. It’s a secret more than one troll would kill to possess, which is why he must keep it from everyone, even the girl he loves.
Since a tragic accident revealed her affliction and ruined her sister’s chance at the throne, Pénélope is an anathema to her father, the Duke d’Angoulême. Deeming her life worthless, he gives her one chance to survive: find proof that the boy she loves is a leader in the sympathizer revolution.
Marc and Pénélope must navigate the complex politics of Trollus, where powers on all sides are intent on using them as pawns, forcing them to risk everything for a chance at a life together.
Except being together might be the greatest risk of all.
I am so so so so so glad this series is continuing! I adored Stolen Songbird, and had a little bit of a panic when Angry Robot discontinued its YA imprint specifically because I was so invested in this series. Luckily, they picked up the rest of the series, and now there’s a prequel too!
The Broken Ones will be released on June 6, 2017
