Piatkus Fiction is delighted to announce the acquisition of the first three books in Thea Harrison’s fantastic new Elder Races series.
This series is perfect for fans of paranormal romance, and has a really interesting premise: it’s a series where beings from myths and legends – dragons, elves, faeries and goblins – co-exist, sometimes uneasily, with humans. It’s a fascinating world where power – financial, social and political – is controlled by the Elder Races, and America is carved up into territories held by a few of these fantastical beings. New York, for example, is under the power of a dragon. And like all dragons, he’s very protective of his hoard: his treasure accumulated over thousands of years. And when a thief is audacious enough to take something from his hoard, he won’t rest until he finds her. But Pia Giovanni is no ordinary thief, and when these two meet … well, you’ll you’ll have to read Dragon Bound to see what happens!
We will publish the ebooks of the first three books as follows: Dragon Bound: late June 2011; Storm’s Heart: 02 August 2011; Serpent’s Kiss: 04 October 2011.
The release dates of the print editions are as follows: Dragon Bound: 03 May 2012; Storm’s Heart: 07 June 2012; Serpent’s Kiss: 05 July 2012.
