Forthcoming book (U.S.): The Moon Rock

The Moon Rock by Boriana Todorov will be released on September 28, 2007 in the U.S.

Description: When Elliot takes his grandfather's moon rock, he's not really stealing it, just borrowing it for further study. But the rock launches him into an adventure beyond his wildest imagination—in fact, it launches him clear to the moon! That night, Elliot awakes in Great Nidor, a city built in the deepest crater on the far side of the moon—a place where wickedness corrupts hearts and bodies, time can be twisted for good or evil, and wonder floats down every street. A civil war is raging between the Librarian and the Defiers. The Librarian rules over the Wings of the Past, Present, and Future. There's a problem, though: he's unable to open the Wing of the Future, where the most dangerous knowledge is stored, knowledge that will help him defeat the Defiers. Only Elliot can get the magical key that unlocks the Wing. But can he find it? And will the Wing of the Future help Elliot save his mother and his home from a terrible fire?

However, this year Solis has given the Fantasia the crucial task of obtaining a new solar converter, the only power source in Solis, because the old one is failing. Misfortune finds the Fantasia in their travels, and Garland's father dies in an attack by Road Rats. Then suddenly two mysterious boys, Timon and Eden, appear with their baby sister, claiming to be from the future -- a world in which the Fantasia has failed in its mission and the evil Nennog has taken power. The boys have come to help the Fantasia, but danger has followed them across time. Can the Fantasia protect Timon and Eden, and succeed in their quest to save their world?

Forthcoming book (U.S.): Dragonhaven

Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley will be released on September 20, 2007 in the U.S.

Description: Jake Mendoza lives at the Makepeace Institute of Integrated Dragon Studies in Smokehill National Park. Smokehill is home to about two hundred of the few remaining draco australiensis, which is extinct in the wild. Keeping a preserve for dragons is controversial: detractors say dragons are extremely dangerous and unjustifiably expensive to keep and should be destroyed. Environmentalists and friends say there are no records of them eating humans and they are a unique example of specialist evolution and must be protected. But they are up to eighty feet long and breathe fire. On his first overnight solo trek, Jake finds a dragon—a dragon dying next to the human she killed. Jake realizes this news could destroy Smokehill—even though the dead man is clearly a poacher who had attacked the dragon first, that fact will be lost in the outcry against dragons. But then Jake is struck by something more urgent—he sees that the dragon has just given birth, and one of the babies is still alive. What he decides to do will determine not only their futures, but the future of Smokehill itself.

When Keelie starts seeing fairies and communicating with trees, she uncovers a secret that links her to a community of elves. As Keelie tries to come to grips with her elfin roots, disaster strikes, and Keelie's identity isn't the only thing that's threatened.
