Beloved YA author Libba Bray is a notably versatile author. She’s written about a boy with mad cow disease (Going Bovine), a plane full of beauty contestants stranded on a desert island (Beauty Queens), and her signature period-paranormal Gemma Doyle series. Her latest novel – a potential franchise-starter called The Diviners – isn’t out until Sept. 18, but the film rights have already been snapped up by Paramount. It follows a glamorous group of young people in the 1920s who, aided by magic powers, find themselves in an epic battle of good vs. evil when occult-based murders come to light. EW is lucky to have a sneak peek at the novel with a brand new trailer and excerpt from the novel. Check them out below!
