To Our Fellow Laterrians,

It’s nearly here!! BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS – the sequel to SKY WITHOUT STARS – hits the shelves on March 24, 2020 and we’re SO excited for you all to read it! You’re in for quite the thrilling voyageur ride with this book! The planet of Laterre is teetering on the brink of war, the Bastille prison moon has never been harsher, and the Regime is brutally quashing any unrest or rebellious activity. A deadly new weapon is rumored to be emerging, too. Chatine, Marcellus, and Alouette must face challenges, epic journeys, and deep personal struggles like they’ve never faced before, in order to save themselves, Laterre, and its people. Luckily, the trio will meet some new compadres, friends, and fellow rebels along the way—new characters, who we think and hope you’re going to love! Kirkus Reviews, who got a sneak peak of BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS, described the sequel as a “compelling, surprising, and entertaining saga that’s literally out of this world!”

So naturally we wanted to offer an “out of this world” pre-order offer to match! Which is why, if you pre-order a hardcover copy before March 24, 2020, you’ll get an set of MAGNIFIQUE, limited-edition System Divine Collector Cards (designed by the amazing Jessica Khoury!). Not only are they stunning depictions of our beloved trio of characters, but there are also a few little clues and hints relating to the series in each picture. (*Cue mysterious sound effect*).

We hope you enjoy the cards and—most of all—we hope you enjoy the book! Thanks for continuing along on this journey through the stars with us!

Vive Laterre!

A traitor.
A prisoner. 
A fugitive. 

Wanted by the Regime. Destined to save the planet. 

Laterre is on the brink of war. The Third Estate are rioting against the injustices of a corrupt system. The Patriarche, reeling from the murder of his only heir, makes brutal attempts to quash the unrest, while a new militant faction launches a series of deadly attacks.

And three outlaws find themselves pulled into the fray…

Marcellus is now a traitor to his planet, willing to do anything to stop his grandfather from seizing control of Laterre, even if it means joining the Vangarde, a rebel group back from the dead.

Chatine is a prisoner on Bastille. Desperate to survive the harsh conditions of the moon, she becomes embroiled in the Vangarde’s dangerous attempt to free their infamous leader.

Alouette is a fugitive who has been lied to her entire life. Searching for the truth about her mysterious past, she soon finds herself hunted by the Regime for reasons she’s only beginning to understand.

But when Laterre is threatened by the emergence of a deadly new weapon, these three renegades must risk everything, traveling to the far reaches of the System Divine and into the white hot center of a planet ready to ignite.
