A Court of Thorns and Roses is getting a new look.

EW can exclusively unveil the new hardcover and paperback covers for the first book in Sarah J. Maas‘ best-selling YA series, which launched in 2015 and has since featured two additional novels and the 2018 novella A Court of Frost and Starlight. The high-fantasy books follow teen huntress Feyre Archeron as she’s taken into the faerie land of Prythian and learns to survive.

“I am so ridiculously obsessed with these beautiful and striking new covers for the ACOTAR series!” Maas said in a statement to EW. “The artists so perfectly captured the atmosphere and heart of each book with these designs, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how they turned out.”

The hardcover edition will be available exclusively in the U.S. and Canada, while the paperback edition will be available globally.

Maas may be busy gearing up for the launch of her upcoming adult series Crescent City this spring, but she’s still busy continuing the series fans have come to know and love. Indeed, there’s another book on the way that will take things in a fresh direction. She teased to EW: “Lately, I’ve been hard at work writing the next installment in the series — Nesta’s book! — and having so much fun in the process! I can’t wait for you guys to read it!”

See the covers below. All four books in the series will be published in hardcover and paperback format the same day, June 2, in the redesign, and are available for pre-order.
