Divergent Author Veronica Roth Is Writing a New Book Series 'in the Vein of Star Wars'
"I'm really enjoying working on this new series," Roth said in a statement
Time to celebrate, Divergent fans: author Veronica Roth has a new book series on the way!
The two-book series doesn’t have a name yet, but it’s being described as a “duology in the vein of Star Wars.”
“Veronica Roth explores – with poise and poignancy – the story of a boy who forms an unlikely alliance with an enemy,” said HarperCollins Publishers in a press release on Monday. “Both desperate to escape their oppressive lives, they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge.”
“I’m really enjoying working on this new series,” Roth added in a statement. “I can’t wait to share it with readers!”
The news comes just a few weeks ahead of the release of Insurgent, the second movie based on Roth’s best-selling trilogy.
The first book in the new series is slated to hit shelves in 2017, with the second following in 2018.
Insurgent opens in theaters on March 20.
