Blood Scion by Deborah Falaye (HarperTeen) - although cover still lists a 2021 release date, a 2022 release date has since been confirmed.
ImageKristin Pettit at HarperCollins has acquired world rights to #PitchWars alum Deborah Falaye's YA fantasy Blood Scion. Inspired by Africa's child soldier crisis and set in a West African fantasy world, the novel follows a young Scion—the all but extinct descendants of the ancient Orisha gods—who is drafted into the very military that has hunted her kind for centuries. Stealing the opportunity to uncover what happened the night her mother disappeared, she will do anything to learn the truth—even if it means becoming the killer the army demands. Victoria Marini at Irene Goodman Literary Agency did the deal.
