Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles series, has announced a new book deal for her first stand-alone novel, titled Heartless.
Meyer describes the novel as a prequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, following the story of “Miss Catherine Cordula, daughter of the Marquis of Rock Turtle Cove” (name subject to change).
“Heartless will tell the tale of how a marquis’s teenage daughter became the infamous Queen of Hearts. It will be a story of whimsy and madness, passion and tragedy, ravens and writing desks,” said Meyer.
Heartless is tentatively scheduled to be released in Winter 2015. For more about Marissa Meyer, visit her website.
