We’ve already been talking a lot about Dragon Pearl, but it’s because we can’t contain how excited we are to kick off 2019 with Yoon Ha Lee’s space opera inspired by Korean mythology. Watch this space for more info about the world-building Yoon has done with this book. And check out our exclusive interview between Rick and Yoon to get even more pumped.

We’ve been dying to find out what happens next in the world of Aru Shah, and April is our chance, with Aru Shah and the Song of Death. The second chapter in Roshani Chokshi’s Pandava series features new characters, zombies, demons, and apparently a giant crab? Super stoked.

The Tyrant’s Tomb
(September 24, 2019)
