Spellhacker by M.K. England
Expected on January 21st, 2020
Published by HarperCollins Children’s Books
In Kyrkarta, magic—known as maz—was once a freely available natural resource. Then an earthquake released a magical plague, killing thousands and opening the door for a greedy corporation to make maz a commodity that’s tightly controlled—and, of course, outrageously expensive.
Which is why Diz and her three best friends run a highly lucrative, highly illegal maz siphoning gig on the side. Their next job is supposed to be their last heist ever.
But when their plan turns up a powerful new strain of maz that (literally) blows up in their faces, they’re driven to unravel a conspiracy at the very center of the spellplague—and possibly save the world.
If you’ve been following me for a bit and paying even a little bit of attention to my feed, you’ll know just how much I absolutely adored M.K.’s first book, The Disasters. So, OF COURSE, I’m way beyond excited for their second book! The world-building and overall set up for Spellhacker is outstanding. I mean, I opened up the ARC and there is a “Periodic Table of Maz” before the first chapter. I’m obviously not prepared for everything they have in store for this book, but I need to read it right away. And then I’m going to need everyone else to read it, too.
There are only 48 left to pre-order this book! Did you know there’s also a pre-order campaign going on? Check it out! And get this amazing book as soon as it comes out!
