ABOUT THE BOOKS
The Darkest Magic:
The beloved bestselling series reaches its epic conclusion: As two lethal elemental gods set out to destroy Mytica, sworn enemies must become allies in the final fight to save the kingdoms. Magnus and Cleo's love will be put to the ultimate test. Dark magic is causing widespread destruction throughout the kingdom. Enemies across the sea are advancing. And unrest is stirring throughout the land. Is their love strong enough to withstand the outside forces tearing them apart?

Black Moon:
When a terrifying tsunami tears through Cancer, killing millions of citizens, the resulting devastation is felt throughout the galaxy. Rho, an intuitive young Guardian, must unite the twelve Houses of the Zodiac before an ancient, power-hungry evil destroys their world. But who amongst the vastly different Houses will believe Rho's story that Ochus, the banished thirteenth guardian from Zodiac lore, is responsible for the destruction of her planet? And who can Rho trust in a world defined by differences? An addictive, action-packed read with countless corners—both dazzling and dark—to explore, ZODIAC blends high-fantasy and sci-fi themes and the familiar pop-culture fun of astrology with lyrical prose, lush descriptions, and tension-packed romance to create a one-of-a-kind adventure series.

The Merciless III:
In The Merciless III, Vega finally reveals the sinister mystery of how a teen girl named Brooklyn became the epitome of evil in this terrifying prequel to the series MTV calls "Mean Girls meets The Exorcist."

The Library of Fates:
No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything—family, her childhood love, and her freedom—to save her people. But her offer isn't enough. The palace is soon under siege, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on one another. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them. Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life—and another love—await?

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
MORGAN RHODES is the New York Times bestselling author of the Falling Kingdoms series and its brand new companion series A Book of Spirits & Thieves. Under another pen name, she's an award-winning author of more than two dozen novels. Morgan lives in Southern Ontario, where she's currently hard at work on the next Falling Kingdoms book.

ROMINA RUSSELL is a Los Angeles, CA based author who originally hails from Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a teen, Romina landed her first writing gig—College She Wrote, a weekly Sunday column for the Miami Herald that was later picked up for national syndication—and she hasn't stopped writing since. When she's not working on the ZODIAC series, Romina can be found producing movie trailers, taking photographs, or daydreaming about buying a new drum set. She is a graduate of Harvard College and a Virgo to the core.

DANIELLE VEGA spent her childhood hiding under the covers while her mother retold tales from the pages of Stephen King novels instead of reading bedtime stories about princesses and dwarves like a normal parent. Now an adult, she can count on one hand the number of times in her life she's been truly afraid. Danielle has won numerous awards for her fiction and nonfiction, and earned a 2009 Pushcart Prize nomination for her short story "Drive." She lives in Brooklyn.

She has a BA in international relations from Brown University and an MA in global media and communications from the Annenberg School for Communication. She has worked as a journalist at ABC News, CNN, and PBS, and most recently as a marketing executive consulting for various Hollywood studios including Fox, Paramount, and Sony. She is also the author of Mirror in the Sky. She lives in Los Angeles and spends her free time reading, hiking, and exploring LA's eclectic and wonderful architecture.
