Nocturna is Maya Motayne’s debut novel and is the first in a sweeping debut fantasy trilogy, set in a Latinx-inspired world, about a face-changing thief and a prince haunted by loss. When their fates collide, they must team up to defeat a terrible, ancient power––which, if not contained, will devour the world. Nocturna was a Summer 2019 Kids Indie Next List pick and hailed by New York Times bestselling author Margaret Rogerson as, “an exhilarating adventure, bursting with lively, inventive magic and characters who charmed the instant they appeared on the page. If you want to get swept up in a story, pick this one.”
Maya is joined by Tomi Adeyemi, #1 instant New York Times bestselling author of Children of Blood and Bone. It is the first book in the Legacy of Orisha YA fantasy trilogy and was listed as one of the best books of 2018 by New York Times, TIME, NPR, Buzzfeed, Bustle, Kirkus, Newsweek, Boston Globe, Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, and many more.
