Maas’ upcoming novel, Crescent City, will be the first in a new adult fantasy series. The novel is set in a universe where humans struggle for survival among the hierarchy of magical creatures. The novel will focus on Sidhe Bryce Quinlan as she seeks to avenge the death of her murdered best friend. 

 

Maas said in a statement,

 

Crescent City has been a passion project from the start, and I’ve been working on it for several years now whenever I get the chance.

 

Crescent City will be published in late 2019, but Maas fans still have a lot to look forward to from now until then. Her DC icon novel, Catwoman: Soulstealer is still in the works and A Court of Frost and Starlight was just published earlier this month.

As part of DC Icons, a new series in which is a new series in which YA writers take on classic superheroes, Maas wrote a book about Catwoman.  According to Mashable:

Catwoman: Soulstealer imagines Selina Kyle returning to Gotham City as the mysterious and wealthy Holly Vanderhees, two years after she escaped the slums. Meanwhile, Gotham City is vulnerable with Batman off on a vital mission, and Luke Fox wants to prove that as Batwing he has what it takes to help people. Selina’s left to balance a threat from her past, her growing connection to Luke, and the heist she still hopes to pull off.

 

9. Her books have gotten so popular that people have begun naming their children after her characters!

“People have named their babies after my characters! Aelin, Celaena, Nehemia, Elentiya. No boy names yet. I’m holding out for a Manon, like Manon Blackbeak, but I don’t think anyone is going to name their sweet innocent baby after a hundred-year-old witch.”

 

10. Her character-naming process is intense but often a little nonsensical.

“I’m pretty sure Tolkien thrashes in his grave at least once a day over my fantasy naming methods. I’ll go on baby name websites and I’ll have a vague idea of the culture I want it to sound like, like an Ancient Greece or Persian type name, so I’ll go and look up huge charts until something connects in my brain… I don’t even know where Galathynius came from. Again, I started writing this when I was so young, some of the creation process early on was completely lost in the black hole of my mind … [Or] I’ll do little inside jokes like… Dorian Havilliard. In earlier drafts it was De Havillard, which I think came about because I liked Olivia De Havilland. I‘m a huge Gone with the Wind fan and I liked the way her name looked, so I just swapped the n for an r. This is my really creative process.”

 

11. She was genuinely upset when, on her sixteenth birthday, no fantastical creature appeared to tell her she was magic too.

“On my 16th birthday I was really actually depressed because no magical cat showed up to say ‘you’re actually the moon princess’ or ‘you’re a secret witch, and all these real things you felt your whole life, they’re true.’ I was literally depressed the whole day because I wasn’t magical and special. So now I write about magical and special girls.”
