2020 is a big year for Rick Riordan Presents. We’ve already had our first best-seller of the year with Race to the Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse, and we’ve given you a first look at the cover art for Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes and Paola Santiago and the River of Tears. Here’s a glimpse at what’s coming up for the rest of the year (and a little bit of next year too).

Our favorite duo in the multiverse returns Sal & Gabi Fix the Universe, the follow-up to the Pura Belpré winning debut novel by Carlos Hernandez. In the upcoming sequel, Sal has to prevent a rogue Gabi from another universe from destroying his own. As you can see, we’ve got a brand-new look for this series just in time for the paperback release of Sal & Gabi Break the Universe, with vibrant art by Guilherme Asthma.

In this epic finale to the Storm Runner trilogy, when a few Mexica gods try to put their Maya counterparts out of commission, it’s up to Zane and a few godborns-in-training to stop them from destroying the universe. We’re especially glad our fave pup Rosie is front and center on that gorgeous cover by Irvin Rodriguez.
By Kwame Mbalia
On Sale 10/6/2020
Kwame Mbalia’s award-winning, best-selling debut novel blew us away next year, and this sweet cover by Eric Wilkerson assures us the sequel will have the same effect. Tristan Strong, just back from a victorious but exhausting adventure in Alke, the land of African American folk heroes and African gods, is suffering from PTSD. But there’s no rest for the weary when his grandmother is abducted by a mysterious villain out for revenge.
City of the Plague God
On Sale 1/5/2021
And our newest addition to the Rick Riordan Presents family, City of the Plague God, debuts its compelling cover by Kerem Beyit. In this adventure based on Mesoptamian mythology, thirteen-year-old Sikander Aziz has to team up with the hero Gilgamesh in order to stop Nergal, the ancient god of plagues, from wiping out the population of Manhattan. How are we going to wait until next January for this thrill ride?
