Angels (and Fallen Angels): the New Vampires?

December 13, 2009

There has been some talk on the YALSA listserv recently about angels becoming the new vampires in YA lit.  Some recent and upcoming angel/fallen angel books for YAs:

Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare  (currently being adapted into GNs and headed for the big screen and Clare is working on a prequel trilogy)

Fallen by Lauren Kate  (Disney just bought the movie rights for this, the first in a 4 book series)

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia

And a trilogy beginning in Fall 2010 by 17 year old Australian girl (this is her SECOND published trilogy,) Halo, Hades, and Heaven.

Can you think of others?  Have you seen any demand in the branches for angel/fallen angel books for teens?
