ST. PAUL, MN, March 13, 2018 – Flux, an imprint of North Star Editions, Inc. (NSE) is excited to announce the purchase of world rights to The Red Labyrinth, a debut YA fantasy by Meredith Tate. The Red Labyrinth follows seventeen-year-old Zadie as she is forced to team up with a powerful villain to navigate a deadly enchanted labyrinth and save her best (and only) friend: the town hero. The book is set for a spring 2019 release and is the first in a planned trilogy.

More about The Red Labyrinth:

The massive labyrinth was built to protect Zadie Kalverstein’s isolated desert town. Unfortunately, living in the maze’s shadow makes her feel anything but safe. Even without its enchanted deathtraps and illusions, a mysterious killer named Dex lurks in its corridors, terrorizing anyone in his path.

But when Zadie’s best friend vanishes into the labyrinth—and everyone mysteriously forgets he exists— completing the maze becomes her only hope of saving him. In desperation, Zadie bribes the only person who knows the safe path through—Dex—into forming a tenuous alliance.

Navigating a deadly garden, a lethal blood-filled hourglass, and other traps—with an untrustworthy murderer for her guide—Zadie’s one wrong step from certain death. But with time running out before her friend (and secret crush) is lost forever, Zadie must reach the exit and find him. If Dex and the labyrinth don’t kill her first.

About the author:
Meredith Tate grew up in Concord, New Hampshire, where she fell in love with the many worlds of science fiction and fantasy. Pursuing her love of travel, Meredith spent a semester in London and then backpacked in Europe for a month before earning her master’s degree in social work from the University of New Hampshire. After graduation, Meredith worked in the field in Boston for a few years before deciding to pursue her dream of telling stories. She and her husband recently moved to Zurich, Switzerland, where Meredith spends her days eating cheese and chocolate by the lake, and writing about characters way braver than she is.
