Last night during the first of The Trials of Uncle Rick, we got tantalizing sneak previews of two upcoming novels, complete with their evocative and gorgeous covers. So of course we had to grab them and share widely on the blog. Let’s get into it.
By Graci Kim
On Sale 5/4/2021
Debut author Graci Kim clearly made a big impression on Uncle Rick with her debut novel, the first of three about an adopted Korean-American girl who discovers her magical heritage and goes on a perilous journey to save her witch clan family. Rick is raving about this book, saying “Graci Kim does such an amazing job of blending Korean mythology into the modern world, I am now wondering how I ever lived without knowing all this cool information.” Magic, Korean mythology, witches, and Rick Riordan Presents are all we need to hear to add this to our must-read list, but the vivid cover art by Vivienne To really has our curiosity piqued.
Paola Santiago and the Forest of Nightmares
by Tehlor Kay Mejia
On Sale 8/3/2021
Paola is back with another spooky story inspired by the legend of La Llorona. We loved Tehlor Kay Mejia’s series kick-off, Paola Santiago and the River of Tears, and this cover by Vanessa Morales assures us that all the richness and vibrancy of book 1 will be again on full display.
