As the Harry Potter decade ends, we are certainly not short on wannabe replacements. There’s a seemingly never-ending string of Twilight films to anticipate and of course the ultra popular young adult adaptation of The Hunger Games. But it looks like DreamWorks is banking on a five-novel series by Karen Marie Moning called Fever, which revolves around the world of the Fae with mystery and urban fantasy. [/Film]
I haven’t read these,
but they strike me as a little Twilight-esque, so I’m reserving judgement. Moning’s website does nothing to change that theory. Anyone read them yet? Are we in for a new franchise?
Edit due to helpful comments: These are not young adult novels, so that precludes them from having too much to do with the Twilight genre. Not that it’s a bad genre to be in (internet gods know I like me a young adult novel once in awhile), but we’re hearing that it’s more of an adult urban fantasy, which sounds awesome.
