UK Book News: Random House Children's Books acquires a trio of novels from YA author Karen Mahoney!

Random House Children's Books have acquired not one, not two, but three new titles from Karen Mahoney, author of The Iron Witch and its upcoming sequel The Wood Queen.

These new titles will include the third and final book in The Iron Witch trilogy, entitled The Stone Demon, to be published in 2013.

RHCB have also snapped up two books in a Karen's new series, Beautiful Ghosts. This one features Moth, a teenage vampire who first appeared in a short story Falling to Ash in The Eternal Kiss anthology.

Here's more about Beautiful Ghosts

Being a vampire is for life - not just a lifestyle.
Reluctant teenage vampire Marie 'Moth' O'Neal infiltrates a group of Otherkin kids in Boston, teenagers who believe they are reincarnated vampires, in order to find out who or what is killing off the troubled teens... and then turning them into something truly undead with a taste for human flesh. All this while trying to stop sexy young hunter Jace Murdoch from shooting anything that doesn't breathe - including her.

Well, I just love the sound of this one. I can't wait to meet this guy Jace! ;)

If you haven't already seen it, here is the cover art for The Wood Queen, the second book in the Iron Witch trilogy, which will be released in February 2012.

Congrats, Karen! It's all happening! :)


  1. That cover is simply stunning! The Iron Witch has been lying on my shelf for a long time- hopefully I will get to it soon.

  2. I love the sound of Beautiful Ghost. And the cover is beautiful for The Wood Queen.

  3. I've seen many mixed reviews for the iron witch, hopefully the rest of the trilogy and this new trilogy will be excellent

  4. OMG! I didn't know! I loved the Iron Witch now I will have to be on the look out for these one as well!

  5. So pretty much any character named Jace I'm already a fan of, I just love that name:) This new series sounds so good, definitely putting that one on the list! I still need to read The Iron Witch, but I've heard good things:)

  6. I haven't read The Iron Witch yet, but it's on my wishlist and I am glad Karen gets the chance to release so many books in the UK:)
