DEAL NEWS: Amélie Wen Zhao's BLOOD HEIR to Delacorte

February 1, 2019

Congratulations, Amélie Wen Zhao! Amélie’s remarkable debut novel BLOOD HEIR, the first in a trilogy, sold to Krista Marino at Delacorte, a Random House imprint, for publication in 2019. I first read this book in October of last year within a few days of receiving it, and emailed Amélie as soon as I finished. The story follows a blood-bending princess and a cunning conman who forge an unlikely alliance to unravel the corruption gripping their kingdom—and to redeem themselves from the shadows of their pasts. It is the type of fantasy that leaves you breathless, both because of its relentless pacing and the remarkable prose. Get ready to fall in love with this remarkable book!
