We’re thrilled announce new foreign translation rights deals for three of our amazing authors! Rebecca Mancini, Entangled’s Foreign Rights Director and publishing industry veteran of over twenty years, has closed major translation rights deals for Sarah Gilman’s Return to Sanctuary books, Jane Kindred’s House of Arkhangel’sk trilogy (The Fallen Queen, The Midnight Court, and The Armies of Heaven), and Tiffany Truitt’s Lost Souls trilogy.
And now for the details:
AdA, a Quebec based publisher, has licensed the world French language rights for Tiffany Truitt’s Lost Souls Trilogy. Book one in the series, Chosen Ones, is slated for a spring release here in the United States through Entangled, and is already garnering pre-sale buzz. Chosen Ones is a highly anticipated dystopian YA novel, now to be published in French, as well.
About Chosen Ones, book one in the Lost Souls trilogy:
What if you were mankind’s last chance at survival?
Sixteen-year-old Tess lives in a compound in what was once the Western United States, now decimated after a devastating fourth World War. But long before that, life as we knew it had been irrevocably changed, as women mysteriously lost the ability to bring forth life. Faced with the extinction of the human race, the government began the Council of Creators, meant to search out alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial human beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.
Life is bleak, but uncomplicated for Tess as she follows the rigid rules of her dystopian society, until the day she begins work at Templeton, the training facility for newly created Chosen Ones. There, she meets James, a Chosen One whose odd love of music and reading rivals only her own. The attraction between the two is immediate in its intensity—and overwhelming in its danger.
But there is more to the goings-on at Templeton than Tess ever knew, and as the veil is lifted from her eyes, she uncovers a dark underground movement bent not on taking down the Chosen Ones, but the Council itself. Will Tess be able to stand up to those who would oppress her, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?
Moving on, world French language rights for all three books in Jane Kindred’s House of Arkhangel’sk trilogy (The Fallen Queen, The Midnight Court, and The Armies of Heaven), as well as Sarah Gilman’s Return to Sanctuary books (Out in Blue and Deep in Crimson) were licensed by J’ai Lu, the mass-market paperback imprint of the Flammarion Group in France. The French are going to have some great reading ahead!
About The Fallen Queen, by Jane Kindred:
Heaven can go to hell.
Until her cousin slaughtered the supernal family, Anazakia’s father ruled the Heavens, governing noble Host and Fallen peasants alike. Now Anazakia is the last grand duchess of the House of Arkhangel’sk, and all she wants is to stay alive.
Hunted by Seraph assassins, Anazakia flees Heaven with two Fallen thieves—fire demon Vasily and air demon Belphagor, each with their own nefarious agenda—who hide her in the world of Man. The line between vice and virtue soon blurs, and when Belphagor is imprisoned, the unexpected passion of Vasily warms her through the Russian winter.
Heaven seems a distant dream, but when Anazakia learns the truth behind the celestial coup, she will have to return to fight for the throne—even if it means saving the man who murdered everyone she loved.
About Out in Blue, by Sarah Gilman:
In a violent world where fallen archangels are hunted for their valuable plumage, Wren knows one thing for certain: the human woman who saved him from a poacher attack will die if she stays with him. The demon responsible for his parents’ gruesome deaths two decades ago pines for the chance to rip apart any woman who stands under Wren’s wing.
Wren doesn’t expect Ginger to stay by his side once she discovers his ability to drain life with a mere touch, yet she lingers. When an unusual talent of her own reveals the location of Wren’s father, Wren’s isolated world implodes. With the help of the demon protectors he’s sworn never to trust again, Wren risks everything to rescue his father, confront the demon who stalks his and Ginger’s every step, and claim his eternity with the most courageous woman he’s ever known.
