There are four fantastic teams to follow this year. To check out all the books, you can browse this handy Goodreads list to get a feel for the stories and authors on the various teams. I’m Team Purple this time around!
If you’ve never taken part in the hunt and are interested in the rules, visit the official YASH website here. Below are also a few quick links that might help you navigate your first hunting trip or just give you a quick refresher course before the fun is underway!
I’ve been talking about this book for about three years now, on and off, and it feels a little unreal that I can finally, finally share the cover with you!
Cira Antares is deeply loyal to two things: Pax Novis—her mother’s ship that transports supplies across war-torn star systems—and her personal mission to save war orphans. But hiding them as stowaways on the ship is illegal, and if any of them were found, not even her mother could protect Cira from the consequences.
She has successfully kept her secret…until supplies start to go missing. Food. Clothing. Tools. All signs point to her stowaways, but they wouldn’t do anything to risk exposing themselves—or her. Especially not Riston, the oldest of the group and someone Cira has grown close to. Someone she might even be falling in love with…
And petty thefts are only the beginning—whole ships are disappearing now.
Not caught in a firefight. Not destroyed by another planet. Vanishing. Without a trace.
And Pax Novis is next.
Brianna at The Young Folks was kind enough to host a reveal for this beauty yesterday, and even though it’s a little scary how close the release date already is, I honestly can’t wait to share my sprawling, complex space epic with everyone. This is the start of a brand new adventure with a really fun cast of characters, and I hope all of you will join me on this journey!
More information as well as extras like inspiration boards and quote graphics will all be available on my website’s official book page as it becomes available.
It’s official! There will be another trilogy from me in the world eventually, and I am absolutely THRILLED to be working with Kate Brauning at Entangled Teen again! Collaborating with her and the Entangled team on the Ryogan Chronicles series has been a true pleasure. Now we’re taking the partnership INTO SPACE.
Erica Cameron’s PAX NOVIS, a YA trilogy pitched as The Expanse meets Star Trek: Voyager, in which the human colonies spread across the Milky Way have been at war for centuries and everyone depends on the resources carried by massive cargo ships. And though they don’t know it, some stowaway teens hiding on-board the NOVIS may be humankind’s only hope when these ships start to vanish, to Kate Brauning at Entangled Teen in a three book deal, for publication in 2018, 2019, and 2020 respectively, by Eric Smith at P.S. Literary (World).
Basically, soooooo muuuuuuch SPAAAAACE.
It will be a long while yet before I can share anything (before I have anything at all to share, honestly), but this series has a fantastic team behind it. Eric is working with us now and I think his input will help make the PAX NOVIS universe than I ever could on my own. With him and Kate? This is going to be EPIC.
But, seriously y’all. I’m working on so much cool behind the scenes stuff for this series. There will be spaceships. And maps. And cybernetics. And spaceships. And a complicated intersystem conflict. And fun and/or dangerous new tech. And ships the size of small cities, because what would a sci-fi be without spaceships and have I mentioned the spaceships yet?!
It’s probable that more news on these books won’t come until late 2017, but I guarantee you I’ll be working on it in bits and pieces throughout the year. Maybe, maybe, I’ll even share some pieces as I go. ;D
