julie-kagawaI love the Iron Fey series and I have not been shy about it; Julie Kagawa’s newest series Blood of Eden (The Immortal Rules) had the movie rights secured almost immediately. But the biggest news announced on 1/30/13, is Kagawa’s newest fantasy series, not titled, which was bought by HarlequinTEEN, in a seven-figure, five-book deal, with the first book due to release in 2015. Less than a week later, this yet to be written series, was then optioned by Universal pictures with producer Chris Morgan (Fast and Furious, The Legend of Conan), already attached.

The new series is described as young adult fantasy, set in the present day in a coastal town, where mythical creatures live amongst us masked as humans and a group of slayers come to eradicate the creatures and protect the citizens of the town.

Congrats to Julie Kagawa and to all her fans who can’t wait to read & watch more of her visual genius as it moves from the pages to the big screen.
