I was recently contacted by the authors Javi Araguz and Isabel Hierro about their Spanish YA novel, La Estrella (The Star). They have published this book in Spanish in over 20 countries and it has be translated to Portuguese for release in Brazil this year. The authors are hoping to have it translated into English soon.
Right now, you can sign up on their blog to be notified as soon as it is available in English. Even though it's in Spanish right now, I am dying to see it translated. The cover is gorgeous and the trailer is intriguing, so I've already added my name to the list.
The boy’s eyes glittered so strongly, presaging an imminent rupture of The Quietude. Lan was perfectly aware of the prohibition of touching a Star Walker, but right now there was no turning back as their fates had inevitably been sealed off.
