Julie Kagawa, the author of The Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series has written a 104-page proposal for a new YA series. The series has been picked up by Universal, with Chris Morgan on board to produce.
The supernatural story is set in a present-day coastal town where mythical creatures hide amongst us cloaked as humans. Slayers belonging to an order that dates back to St. George infiltrate the town disguised as out-of-town kids, setting up a confrontation and, as is the case with YA books, a love triangle.
The 104-page proposal was described as strong in execution. The deal went down late Thursday.
Harlequin TEEN– in a seven-figure, five-book deal — picked up book rights in January for its young-adult imprint. The first book is to be released in 2015.
