'THE RUIN OF KINGS' TO
BECOME EPIC FANTASY TV SERIES
A number of new fantasy books are getting adaptations, people! Annapurna TV will turn Jenn Lyons' THE RUIN OF KINGS into an epic fantasy
television series. It is the first book of her five part saga A Chorus of Dragons.
|The Ruin of Kings was published this month|
Set in a sprawling, magic filled world populated by gods, dragons, krakens, witches, demons, ghosts, shape shifters and zombies, THE RUIN OF KINGS follows the story of Khirin, a young thief who discovers he may be the son of a prince and involved in a complex prophecy where he is more valuable alive than dead. Lyons, who worked as a graphic artist on video games before, has published this one just two weeks ago for Tor Books!
'BRAVE NEW WORLD'
TO BECOME USA NETWORK SHOW
USA Network has taken over from SyFy the series adaptation of Aldous Huxley's seminal work BRAVE NEW WORLD set in a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy,
privacy, money, family, and history itself. As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage, who escapes with them back to New London. John’s arrival in the New World soon threatens to disrupt its utopian harmony, leaving Bernard and Lenina to grapple with the repercussions.
|Brave New World has been in work since 2015|
