Marie Lu To Write New Duology

We’ve never made a secret that we are huge fans of Marie Lu’s. Her writing is riveting and keeps us on the edge of our seats – wondering what is going to happen next. The third book in The Young Elites on our ‘Most Anticipated Books of 2016’ List for sure.

So we were over the moon excited that EW exclusively announced that Marie is writing a new duology for Penguin Young Readers imprint G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers.

The first book isn’t due out until 2017. It’s entitled Warcross, and here’s how EW describes it: will follow two teenage bounty hunters who are “hired by a young billionaire to catch a hacker in the world’s most phenomenally popular virtual reality video game.”

Marie had this to say about her book, “Warcross is very much a love letter to all my favorite things. I am having the most deliriously awesome time working on this new project, and I hope that both past and new readers will enjoy reading this as much as I’m enjoying writing it.”

We can’t wait to read this book! It sounds amazing. Doesn’t it?!

As we wait for 2017, we have the final book in The Young Elites The Midnight Star, hitting shelves this October 11th. If you haven’t read this series yet, check out our coverage and exclusive interview with Marie Lu to find out why we love this series.
