Amanda Hocking first made her mark in the YA world by self-publishing the popular Trylle Trilogy. The novels were so successful, she garnered a publishing deal with St. Martins. Now, Hocking is back with a new series called The Kanin Chronicles set in the world of the Trylle. The first book, Frostfire, hits shelves Jan. 6, and EW has an exclusive first look at the cover (click above for the full-size image).
“I loved creating the world of the Trylle in Switched, Torn, and Ascend, but those books really only showed a small part of the fantastical world that Wendy, Finn, Loki, and the other trolls inhabit. As soon as I finished that series, I knew that I wanted to go back to the world,” Hocking wrote in an email to EW. “I wanted to write a complimentary tale to Wendy’s, to show the flip side of the life she’s only just beginning to understand—to see it from the eyes of the tracker, to learn more about the mysterious Kanin only hinted at before, and to feel the dangers that come with growing up in such a treacherous but magical world.”
