One of the books I read last year that kickstarted my interest in middle grade (or brought it back into focus, really) was Merrie Haskell’s The Princess Curse. That story was a delight, and it made an appearance on my best of 2011 list. Ever since then I’ve been checking in at Haskell’s blog and Amazon, waiting for title and information about her next book. Today, I found an update. I can’t find a ‘real’ summary, but the cover art is beautiful, and I’m excited to read it no matter what! Handbook for Dragon Slayers will be published by HarperCollins, and releases on May 28, 2013.
described Handbook as a “standalone MG…set on the
in the 1130s. There is an extremely faint connection to The Princess Curse, and I consider it set in the same world—the same slightly sideways version of Rhine River Europe, even though we are hundreds of miles and years away from Reveka’s story.”
What books are you waiting on?
