Second Sky to publish BookTok sensation Ben Alderson

Second Sky are excited to sign a trilogy of M/M fantasy romance novels from BookTok sensation Ben Alderson.

Jack Renninson, associate publisher (consultant) at Second Sky, has acquired world all languages rights (including audio, film and TV) to a trilogy of M/M fantasy romance novels from BookTok sensation Ben Alderson. The first title, HEIR TO THORN AND FLAME, will publish in July 2023.

Set in a world of elemental magic and mythical beasts, the series follows a young sorcerer forced to join a ruthless noble court and adopt the identity of its heir, including his betrothal to the handsome and dangerous heir of a rival faction.

Renninson says,

‘I could not be more excited to be working with Ben. His storytelling has everything you could hope for in fantasy romance, with drama and tension springing from every page. Ben has already built an extraordinary community of readers—I know that they and many more genre fans are going to be swept away by this series.’

Alderson says,

‘I am beyond thrilled to be working with Second Sky on my new adult fantasy trilogy. What can be expected is sarcastic and flirtatious banter, ice-breathing dragons, gay mages and lots of drama. Embarking on this new journey with Bookouture is a dream of mine and I am honoured to have found a home for the series of my heart.’
