The Apocalypse Guard is a forthcoming YA trilogy set in the same multiverse as The Reckoners. It is being published by Delacorte Press and the first installment is expected to be released in Spring 2018.[1]

Publishing rights have been acquired by Delacorte Press (also the publishers of The Reckoners), and the first book is arranged to be released in the spring of 2018,[1] written between Stormlight 3 and 4.[2]

The Apocalypse Guard series is set in a world parallel to that of the Reckoners, and an organization of superpowered individuals is at its center. Their collective objective is to save doomed planets, until the day something goes horribly wrong and it is up to one young member of the guard to fix things before time runs out for her and the planet she calls home.
Publication of the first book in the series is planned for spring 2018.
