News About the New Series!

Yesterday we finally announced the new series I’ve been dying to tell everyone about. There was a nice little blurb on the NYT blog, but it didn’t actually say much about the books themselves. So I’m going to tell you about them now.

The new series is a YA paranormal romance trilogy called¬†The Kanin Chronicles. If you read the Trylle trilogy (or if you’re Scandinavian), you may be thinking that the word “Kanin” sounds familiar. As you may recall, the Kanin are another tribe of trolls, who are mentioned in the Trylle book but not really seen. You may also recall that in Ascend, Finn’s mother and younger sister Ember were going to stay with relatives in the Kanin tribe.

So putting those pieces together, you may feel its safe to assume that the Kanin Chronicles are a spinoff series from the Trylle about Ember Holmes. And in that you’d be both correct, and not correct. Ember is a part of the Kanin Chronicles, but the focus is actually on an entirely new character, Bryn Aven. Other prominent characters from the Trylle series do make appearances in the Kanin¬† series, but I want the primary focus to be on new characters with new story lines.

I’m not exactly sure when the first book of the Kanin Chronicles will be out, but I’d guess somewhere in mid-to-late 2014. And I think the books will be published in a relatively quick succession (similar to how St. Martin’s published both the Trylle and Watersong series).

Other fun facts about the Kanin Chronicles: It’s set four years after the events in Ascend (the final book in the Trylle series). There is plenty of romance. You do not need to have read the Trylle series to understand the Kanin series, although there will be some references and allusions to things that happened in the Trylle books.

That’s about all I can say for now. There will obviously be more of a description and more info about the books in the future.
