February is thick with big dystopian-fantasy releases. For readers who aren’t into that, just wait until March’s sci-fi-heavy release schedule comes to save you from the death throes of YA dystopian romance. Until then, there’s four big-name books slated for release this month:
February 7th, 2017
Neil Gaiman’s stories have always been heavily influenced by myth and legend — the re-imagining of ancient gods in his American Gods, fairies in Stardust, demons in The Graveyard Book — and his new Norse Mythology seeks to continue that trend, with his own retelling of ancient Norse legends.
King’s Cage (Red Queen 3)
King’s Cage is the third entry in Victoria Aveyard’s popular Red Queen series, which blends YA dystopian romance with supernatural fantasy.
February 14th, 2017
Gilded Cage (Dark Gifts 1)
Gilded Cage is the first book in a new YA dystopian trilogy from debuting author Vic James, combining alt-history with a fantastical Victorian setting.
February 21st, 2017
A Conjuring of Light (Darker Shade of Magic 3)
V. E. Schwab
The final book in V. E. Schwab’s Darker Shade of Magic series lands on February 21st, with the release of A Conjuring of Light.
