The Other Land Chronicles is the fourth fantastic/YA series written by best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz, co-written with her husband, Michael Johnston. The series is said to be a trilogy.


Set in 111 C.D., one hundred and eleven years after a Catastrophic Disaster has wiped out 99% of humanity and left the earth covered in ice, this new series introduces readers to a ragtag group of friends and the dawning of a new time. The world of reason, of mathematics and science, is ending, and a new civilization is being born from the ice: a world of magic and mayhem, sorcerers and spellcraft.




  • As said by Melissa de la Cruz, the series will be about magic, but will also deal with gambling, mercenaries, pirates, prostitution, and environment.
  • The publication rights for Heart of Dread series have already been bought by French publisher Albin Michel, which already published the Blue Bloods series.
