@Kimberly_Derting has a new book deal! We want it out now!

5907440520_32166acb80 There are few authors that I LOVE, though there are many that I love. And Kimberly Derting is one of them. She’s an amazing author and if you haven’t read the ‘Body Finder’ and ‘Pledge’ series, then you are missing out.

Kim announced this AM that she has a new book deal. We are putting in our request for an ARC now.

HC Takes ‘The Taking’

Kimberly Derting has had commercial and critical success with two previous young adult trilogies and she has just sold a third to Sarah Landis at Harper Teen. Laura Rennert of Andrea Brown Literary Agency brokered the world-rights deal, which was for a strong six figures. The new series is tentatively called the Taking, which is also the title of the first book. The series will follow the story of a teen who wakes up after one lost night, to find that five years have passed and everything about the life she remembers has changed, even though she’s still the same 16-year-old that she was when she vanished. Publication of The Taking is planned for summer 2014, and film and television rights are being handled by Alicia Gordon, Ashley Fox, and Erin Conroy of William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Derting’s earlier series the Body Finder has been published in 12 foreign territories, and the Pledge, another series, has been published in nine.

Sounds amazing! And we’ll be covering it here on Fangirlish, just as we cover all of Kim’s work!

Synopsis for ‘The Essence’ is Revealed

The synopsis for ‘ESSENCE’, the second book in The Pledge Trilogy, has been released. Kim updated her blog today with the synopsis…

Poor child. Poor, wretched child. You have no idea what you’re up against. No idea how to stop me, do you?

Though it has been months since Charlaina—Charlie—defeated the tyrant Sabara and took control of the Ludanian crown, Sabara has not disappeared. The old queen’s Essence has fused itself to Charlie’s psyche and is viciously fighting to overpower Charlie.

Balancing her new duties as Queen and battling both Sabara’s voice and a growing resistance to her rule push Charlie to the brink of exhaustion. She wants to be the same old Charlie she has ever been but now she is Your Majesty.

As Charlie journeys to an annual summit to meet with the leaders of nearby Queendoms—an event where her ability to understand all languages is the utmost asset—she is faced with the ultimate betrayal. And the only person she can turn to for help is the evil soul residing within.
