Stephanie Garber is on track to bring us two new books for the Caraval series.
Garber started writing fiction in her spare time while working as a college resident director. She wrote several novels and a space opera that caught the attention of a literary agent. Unfortunately, the space opera proved unsuccessful and the author started working on the Caraval series. It was not intended to be a series at first but it soon evolved into a whole world created by Garber’s imagination.
Garber’s publisher Hodder will release Once Upon a Broken Heart in September 2021, in hardback and e-book.
Written as part of the Caraval series, Once Upon a Broken Heart is described as “a captivating and whimsical new adventure, which will capture the hearts of readers old and new”.
The synopsis reads: “When Evangeline Fox learns that the love of her life is about to marry another, she feels her heart begin to break in two. Desperate and distraught, she offers the charismatic but wicked Prince of Hearts whatever he wishes in exchange for his help to stop the wedding. His request: three kisses. At first, it seems simple enough, but Evangeline quickly learns that bargaining with a Fate is a dangerous game, and it could cost her far more than she intended. For the prince has plans for Evangeline, plans that will either end in the greatest happily ever after, or in the most exquisite tragedy…”
Garber said: “I am so thankful that Hodder and Stoughton has given all my books such an incredible home in the United Kingdom. It was an absolute delight to work with them on the Caraval series—Hodder excels at taking the magic from books and making it stretch beyond the pages. We’ve already had a wonderful time brainstorming how to bring even more magic into this new series, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the things that their amazing team has come up with.”
