It has just been announced that Veronica Roth has a signed a new two book deal with Harper Collins.

Read the press release below:

HarperCollins Publishers announced today the acquisition of a two-book deal by international bestselling author Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent series. Joanna Volpesold World English rights on behalf of Newleaf Literary to Katherine Tegen, Vice President and Publisher of her eponymous imprint at HarperCollins Children’s Books.

In the untitled first novel of a highly anticipated duology in the vein of Star Wars,Veronica Roth explores—with poise and poignancy—the story of a boy who forms an unlikely alliance with an enemy. Both desperate to escape their oppressive lives, they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge. Roth commented, “I’m really enjoying working on this new series. I can’t wait to share it with readers!”  

“I am tremendously excited for Veronica Roth’s next project with HarperCollins,” saidSusan Katz, President of HarperCollins Children’s Books. “We are incredibly proud to publish the work of such a bright, young writer and are eager to embark on this next adventure in her extraordinary career.”

Katherine Tegen adds, “Veronica is one of the most talented authors I have ever worked with. Her brilliant prose captures the voice of a generation while appealing to readers of all ages. I am thrilled to be working with Veronica on this new series.”

The first of Veronica Roth’s upcoming young adult novels will publish in 2017, with the next novel to follow in 2018.

Check out what Veronica Roth had to say:

Roth and her publisher offered few specifics, beyond saying the series is in “the vein of ‘Star Wars'” and will tell of a boy’s “unlikely alliance” with an enemy.

“Both desperate to escape their oppressive lives, they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge,” the publisher announced.

In a recent email to the AP, Roth wrote that “The idea started with a character. All the other elements — setting, world, even a substantial portion of the plot — came after.” She added that while she had a “pretty detailed” outline for the new series she was still in the early stages of writing.

“That’s why I’m being so vague,” she explained.

“I think I’d have to be a robot not to occasionally worry about expectations!” she wrote to the AP. “But mostly I try to trust my instincts. It helps that I’m really in love with this project — that makes it a joy to work on.

“I’ve been really taking my time with it,” she said of the new series. “I’ve written huge sections a certain way only to cut them and start again. I’ve stepped away for a while, to work on other things, and then come back when I have better perspective. I’ve been more patient with myself and with the story. I’ve expanded my collection of comfortable pants and snack foods. It’s all working quite well so far.”
