Diversion Books to Publish New Series by Bestselling Co-Author of the House of Night Series


New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/19/2015 --Diversion Books is proud to announce it will publish a brand new five-book paranormal romance series from New York Times bestselling author Kristin Cast. The first title in this series will debut on June 9, 2015.

Cast, the co-author of the hugely popular YA franchise House of Night, has created a thrilling, romantic new series laced with elements of mythology and a young woman at the center of a battle between worlds.

Alek, a handsome and headstrong young man from the underworld of Tartarus has been commanded to venture earthward to save Eva, who is being hunted by a serial killer, the killer's motives seemingly centuries old. As Alek and Eva's worlds come ever closer to coming together, a sinister threat looms heavy, threatening to tear the very fabric of both worlds apart.

"What excited me most the first time I read this was how sharp and funny and intense it is," said Mary Cummings, Editorial Director for Diversion Books. "I found myself laughing and gasping on the same page."

Diversion will have the first book up for pre-order by Christmas 2014, to give Cast's loyal following a great book to look forward to in 2015. "Kristin Cast is a supernaturally talented writer with a huge audience that has grown up with her books, and we see this series as the perfect way for Kristin and her fans to grow together."

The signing of New York Times bestseller Cast adds to Diversion's growing list of bestselling YA, New Adult and paranormal authors. She joins a roster of writers that features YA powerhouse S.E. Hinton; bestselling sci-fi author Ursula K. Le Guin; C.J. Abedi, whose Fae was optioned by Ridley Scott; and New Adult paranormal author Karina Halle.
