Dystopian Fantasy for Our Cultural Moment

It seems like hardly a month goes by without hearing that dystopian literature is trending, or it’s making a comeback, or that a certain classic dystopian novel is selling inordinately well for an octogenarian book. One thing’s for certain—whether you call it dystopian fantasy, YA, or dystopian novels—these stories are here to stay.

Some would say we’re in the golden age of dystopian fiction—probably because many readers turn to books either to understand or escape the dystopia around them.

The Labyrinth of the Faun

We have a big announcement from Cornelia and filmmaker Guillermo del Toro: the novelization of Pan’s Labyrinth that they’ve collaborated on, will be published in the US and UK on July 2nd, 2019! Cornelia worked with del Toro on The Labyrinth of the Faun for several years, exchanging drafts and notes. Alongside the novelization of his story, Cornelia also wrote nearly a dozen short stories, offshoots of the original tale often about characters on the periphery, which expand upon motifs from the original.

THE GRIFFIN'S FEATHER flies in!

Cornelia's long-awaited sequel to Dragon Rider has flown into bookstores in the U.S. and Canada. After over a decade, Ben, Firedrake, and friends old and new are back, and part of FREEFAB, a conversation organization that aids magical creatures and the humans who love them. 

Another Reckless Review!

from WriterChickAnu - This holiday season, we're particularly grateful for our wonderful readers! Many of you—like the writer of this wonderful review—have been reading Cornelia's stories voraciously for years, and we feel so lucky...

1 Year of Reckless!

Has it been a year already? (Answer: yes, yes it has.)

The revised Reckless series has been out for a year with Breathing Books! Last year, we were so thrilled to bring you revised editions of the story Cornelia began writing several years ago, editions with cohesive cover art and more depth to the beginning of Jacob Reckless' extended adventure.

Cornelia's busy writing book four, Reckless: The Islands of the Fox, and, in the meantime, enjoy your travels through the MirrorWorld!

 

Hopes & Dreams: A Man-Goyl Transformation

Poised at the beginning of this world's Industrial Revolution, two young farmers' sons set out to make new lives for themselves, but instead find living terror in the Goyl, and the Fairy magic that has gifted them a strange new power. Watch the spectacle:

Reckless App: Now for iPHONE!

We are SO excited to announce that the Reckless app is now available for iPhones as well as iPad! If you haven't already seen it, the Reckless app is an expansion on the Reckless series and includes fourteen new stories that take place behind the mirror!

We've put two of the Reckless app stories on YouTube, which you can view here and here, but many of the stories are interactive, and we're thrilled that more of you will be able to experience the full compendium!
