The Stormlight Archive #4 Coming Fall 2020

Brandon Sanderson fans and epic fantasy readers around the world, rejoice! The fourth book in Sanderson’s bestselling Stormlight Archive series will hit shelves near you on November 17, 2020.

After forming a coalition of human resistance against the enemy invasion, Dalinar Kholin and his Knights Radiant have spent a year fighting a protracted, brutal war. Neither side has gained an advantage.

Now, as new technological discoveries begin to change the face of the war, the enemy prepares a bold and dangerous operation. The arms race that follows will challenge the very core of the Radiant ideals, and potentially reveal the secrets of the ancient tower that was once the heart of their strength.

Adult Books for Teens

This month’s roundup of adult books for teens includes a fantasy conclusion, a hip-hop biography, & a heartwarming dog story (& more)!

THE RISE OF MAGICKS: Chronicles of The One, Book 3 by Nora Roberts
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of YEAR ONE and OF BLOOD AND BONE concludes her stunning new trilogy praised as “A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King’s THE STAND.”

“Teen fantasy readers who have watched the book’s protagonist grow into her powers will not want to miss seeing how Fallon Swift saves the world.”
Booklist, YA Interest

“Roberts’ magnificent trilogy concludes with another title that perfectly balances magic, adventure, romance, and steely resolve in the battle of good vs. evil while reminding us that while the battles may save us, it’s the home, hearth, and community which sustain us. Brilliant and inspiring.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

JAY-Z: Made in America by Michael Eric Dyson
This book wrestles with the biggest themes of JAY-Z’s career, including hustling, and it recognizes the way that he’s always weaved politics into his music, making important statements about race, criminal justice, black wealth and social injustice.

“A magnet for YA hip-hop fans.” —Booklist, YA Interest

“This is more than a hip-hop bio; Dyson is giving us something larger, and we are sitting in a classroom under the spell of a captivating teacher.”
