The Fandom’s Most Anticipated YA Books: November 2015

Check out our most anticipated Young Adult books hitting shelves in November 2015!

Listed in alphabetical order.


Nightshade series author Andrea Cremer is back with the second book in The Inventor’s Secret series. It’s a deliciously fun romp through an alternate history in which the Revolutionary War never happened and America remains under the control of the British. Set in the 1800s, Charlotte and her friends are on a wicked steampunk journey that will carve them their own path through history!

Oh, P.S. We’ll be hosting the launch party for this book is Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego this Tuesday night! Be there!

The Revolution is beginning–and Charlotte may be on the wrong side.

In this sequel to The Inventor’s Secret, Charlotte and her companions escape the British Empire, but they haven’t left danger behind. In fact, if they go against the revolutionaries, they face even greater peril.

Charlotte leads her group of exiles west, plunging into a wild world of shady merchants and surly rivermen on the way to New Orleans. But as Charlotte learns more about the revolution she has championed, she wonders if she’s on the right side after all. Charlotte and her friends get to know the mystical New Orleans bayou and deep into the shadowy tunnels below the city–the den of criminals, assassins and pirates–Charlotte must decide if the revolution’s goals justify their means, or if some things, like the lives of her friends, are too sacred to sacrifice.

In case you missed it, we loved Elisa Kova’s Air Awakens. The quiet, unassuming indie was a sweeping fantasy with stellar characters and tons of adventure to boot! Now, we’ll get to see how Vhalla’s story continues in the sequel and we’re pretty psyched!

Soldier… Sorcerer… Savior… Who is Vhalla Yarl?

Vhalla Yarl marches to war as property of the Solaris Empire. The Emperor counts on her to bring victory, the Senate counts on her death, and the only thing Vhalla can count on is the fight of her life. As she grapples with the ghosts of her past, new challenges in the present threaten to shatter the remnants of her fragile sanity. Will she maintain her humanity? Or will she truly become the Empire’s monster?

Does anyone tell a story quite like James Dashner?! He’s created a brilliant “anything goes” gaming world in the VirtNet, savvy characters, crazy adventures, and a devastating sci-fi twist that shocked just about every reader out there. We can’t wait to see how Michael and his friends’ final showdown against Kaine plays out!

Michael used to live to game, but the games he was playing have become all too real. Only weeks ago, sinking into the Sleep was fun. The VirtNet combined the most cutting-edge technology and the most sophisticated gaming for a full mind-body experience. And it was Michael’s passion. But now every time Michael sinks, he risks his life.

The games are over. The VirtNet has become a world of deadly consequences, and Kaine grows stronger by the day. The Mortality Doctrine—Kaine’s master plan—has nearly been realized, and little by little the line separating the virtual from the real is blurring. If Kaine succeeds, it will mean worldwide cyber domination. And it looks like Michael and his friends are the only ones who can put the monster back in the box—if Michael can figure out who his friends really are.

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
