Orion's brand new YA imprint Indigo launches this month with a strong selection of titles. First up is Mia James's Darkness Falls - actually the second book in the Ravenwood mysteries, the first of which appeared from sister imprint Gollancz last year. Moving James over to Indigo is a shrewd move as their list is far more precisely focussed to help these books find their natural readership.
Darkness Falls is published in hard cover and takes young readers into the darkest corners of London's Highgate Cemetery - definitely not a place to be wandering through at night!
"Highgate. When April's family moved to the sleepy North London village of Highgate, everyone told her it was the start of an amazing new life. They didn't know the half of it. Weeks later, her father was the latest in a series of brutal killings, someone has tried to kill her, and now her boyfriend, Gabriel, is dying too . . . Murder April couldn't save her father, but there's just a chance she can save Gabriel. There's an ancient recipe, hidden in a forbidden book, which holds the cure. All April has to do is find it. Somehow. Vampires But she has to keep a low profile. In a school full of vampires, where one of their own has been killed, they're beginning to suspect they have a Fury in their midst. April's blood might be deadly to vampires, but even that won't save her if they figure out who she is. Time is short, the stakes are high, and surviving school has never been so tough"
