Bloomsbury Children’s Books has acquired author Sara Holland’s new fantasy novel HAVENFALL.
Sara Holland is well known in the YA world for Everless and Evermore; the news of another novel is exciting! Described as a mash-up of fantasy and reality, Havenfall will follow protagonist Maddie as she spends the summer in her uncle’s Inn that happens to be the intersection of different magical realms. About the book, Sara said to Deadline:
“My whole life, I’ve obsessed over contemporary fantasy books that made me believe magic could be just around the next corner. So it’s a dream come true to find a publishing home for my first novel set in this world. I couldn’t be more thrilled that Cindy and the Bloomsbury team fell in love with the setting of Havenfall and with Maddie — a tough, resilient girl who fights to preserve the magic around her even as she starts to understand its dark side. This story means a lot to me, and I can’t wait to share it with readers everywhere next year!”
Sara also posted about the new book on Instagram:
Havenfall’s anticipated release is winter 2020. VP of Bloomsbury Books Cindy Loh described the excitement around publishing Sara Holland’s new novel:
“Maddie is a grounded, ‘every-girl’ teenager trying to deal with her non-traditional family and not fall for the one person she shouldn’t be with, and Sara takes this very relatable, issue-based narrative and spins it with fantastical elements, other-world secrets, and scary, please-turn-on-the-lights creatures — all right in the middle of Colorado. Sara’s storytelling pulls you right in, no matter what kind of book-lover you are, and I’m thrilled to be welcoming Sara to our YA list and publishing such an inventive, exciting new series.”
