Becca Fitzpatrick, author of the bestselling Hush Hush series, confirmed a new book deal earlier today.
The novel, which has yet to be given a cover or release date, is currently under the title Black Ice. In a recent blog post, Fitzpatrick defined the book as ‘gritty and frightening, twisty and sexy’ and left us with the official description synopsis:
BLACK ICE is a riveting stand-alone psychological thriller that takes place against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Seventeen-year-old Britt Pfeiffer has been training to backpack the crest of the Teton Range, but she isn’t prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two occupants—who then take her hostage. In exchange for her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set off into the storm, Britt knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. But the task isn’t as straightforward as it seems. Finding one chilling piece of evidence after another, Britt uncovers the truth about a series of murders that have taken place in the region…and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target.
The description, along with the eighth chapter of Fitzpatrick’s latest and final installment in the Hush Hush series, was blurbed earlier this week over at Entertainment Weekly’s Shelf Life. The whole article can be found here .
