A New Gena Showalter Series is On the Horizon

I was updating the new release pages yesterday, and I came across a totally random listing on Amazon for a new young adult series from Gena Showalter. I had heard last year that another one was coming, and it looks like details are starting to emerge. The series is called Everlife, and the first book is called Firstlife. It has a release date of February 23rd.




Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.

There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.

In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms and the two boys who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t where the boy she’s falling for lives? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…

Hm, sounds different. I like the asylum angle…always was a sucker for a mistaken mental illness angle, but not sure on the religious side. I was hit or miss with Gena’s latest books because of the religious overtones, so I guess I will have to see how this one goes, too.

Does this sound like something you will be checking out? Did the religious overtones of her latter books change your enjoyment, or did you notice a difference?

    Not a fan of the triangle at all (except the epic one in Cassandra Clare’s The Infernal Devices). There has to be another way to get some drama, surely.

    I’ll be passing on any more of her books. I can’t get a feel for her writing since she’s moved on to greener pastures. Yes it did affect her work for me. And I really loved her Lords of the Underworld Series, but last few books you’d think someone else wrote them. I’m glad she’s happy though regardless. 🙂

    I thought there was a bit of a period of transition, but the last couple I found more old-school Gena. Not quite the same, but maybe finding more of a balance?
