Veronica Roth fans can start the countdown.
The “Divergent” author is set to write a new two-book series, according to source ‘The Associated Press’. The books currently are untitled, with the first one expected in 2017 and the next in 2018.
Roth and her publisher offered few specifics, but stated that the series is in “the vein of ‘Star Wars'” and will tell of a boy’s “unlikely alliance” with an enemy.
“Both characters are desperate to escape their oppressive lives, and they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge,” the publisher announced.
The Divergent trilogy was completed in 2013 and a hit motion picture was adapted from the 1st book and quickly earned more than $100 million at the box office. Three more movies are planned.
The movie “Insurgent” will be released March 20.
