After an auction, L.J. Andrews has sold world rights to the first two books in her new Stonegate romantasy series to Kristine Swartz at Ace. The deal was negotiated by Katie Shea Boutillier at the Donald Maass Literary Agency. Broken Souls and Bones is set for summer 2025. (Details about the second book are not yet available.) Boutillier said Broken Souls follows a young woman “with a unique form of bone melder magic” who is “forced into the service of a power-hungry king and is determined to escape—until she falls for the prince’s silent guard and their forbidden passion unravels a deadly truth.”
