6 New Young Adult Fantasy Book Maps to Love
Kiss of Deception – Remnant
There definitely are girls are on the move in Kiss of Deception. So, the map was helpful and just plain pretty. Plus, you can tell that in future books, this map will be even more essential.
Throne of Glass – Erilea
Plus, I really love seeing places on the map and knowing the author will take you to them in the future…
Mortal Heart – Brittany
Definitely in Grave Mercy but even more in Mortal Heart, these nuns are on the run! This is another great fantasy series where each novel is told by a new novitiate and each brings their own unique view on St. Mortain and their role in the sacred order.
Finnikin of the Rock – Lumatere
This is a book where maps are NECESSARY. And fortunately, there are two provided. The land of Lumatere is a complicated one, but the actual geography of it doesn’t have to be.
Clariel – The Old Kingdom
The maps from Sabriel and Lirael have been reused in Clariel. Which is A-OK as there are new lands being explored. Although you don’t need to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy Clariel, I do recommend them, as they are classic fantasy stories.

I could go on forever about this book. I still haven’t posted a review – still waiting till the publication date comes closer. But, let’s just say the world created here is epic and fantastic and here’s the proof:
