Exciting news was announced this morning! HarperCollins publishers have announced that they have signed a two book deal with Veronica Roth. That’s right, that means a guaranteed two more books from our favorite author!
In the untitled first novel of a highly anticipated duology in the vein of Star Wars, Veronica Roth explores—with poise and poignancy—the story of a boy who forms an unlikely alliance with an enemy. Both desperate to escape their oppressive lives, they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge. Roth commented, “I’m really enjoying working on this new series. I can’t wait to share it with readers!”
The first untitled book will be released sometime in 2017 with the second to follow a year later in 2018.

Roth and her publisher offered few specifics, beyond saying the series is in “the vein of ‘Star Wars'” and will tell of a boy’s “unlikely alliance” with an enemy.
“Both desperate to escape their oppressive lives, they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge,” the publisher announced.
In a recent email to the AP, Roth wrote that “The idea started with a character. All the other elements — setting, world, even a substantial portion of the plot — came after.” She added that while she had a “pretty detailed” outline for the new series, she was still in the early stages of writing.
“That’s why I’m being so vague,” she explained.
