HarperCollins to release Rosamund Hodge’s new series


Rosamund Hodge (Cruel Beauty) recently sold a two-book series to HarperCollins imprint Balzer + Bray. The currently untitled new series is a re-telling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set in a world threatened by necromancers and protected by “the Juliet,” a girl born in every generation with powerful magic.

“When I was nine or ten, my parents had us all watch the BBC production of Romeo and Juliet. I thought it was the stupidest story in the whole world. I also kept acting out alternate endings with my Barbie dolls, which probably should have been my first hint that I didn’t hate it as much as I thought,” said Hodge.

Publication of the first installment of Hodge’s new series is due in spring 2016. For more, visit Rosamund Hodge’s website.
