Series: Declaration Trilogy


DREAMS OF GODS & MONSTERS by Laini Taylor
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: April 1, 2014

"Despite being speeded to resolution, an ambitious, gorgeously edgy drama lit up by its coruscating characters and prose. (Fantasy. 13 & up)"

DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT by Laini Taylor
Released: Nov. 6, 2012

"Mostly about licking wounds in the wake of the opener's savage inner and outer conflicts, but well-endowed with memorable characters and turns of phrase. (Fantasy. 14 & up)"

A love thought lost proves anything but when another world's 1,000-year war spills over into this one. Read full book review >
THE LEGACY by Gemma Malley
FICTION
Released: Jan. 4, 2011

"Any subtlety the earlier books may have enjoyed is lost in what is now a straightforward thriller. (Science fiction. 11-13)"
