Kristin Daly Rens at Balzer + Bray has acquired world English rights to Set Fire to the Gods by Sara Raasch (l.) and Kristen Simmons, a duology set in a Greco-Roman inspired world. Pitched as Gladiator meets The Hunger Games, the series follows the daughter of a murdered champion seeking vengeance against the god of fire, and an underprivileged stonemason fighting to reclaim his standing under the god of earth, as they are swept into an ancient war between gods and mortals. Publication is projected for spring 2020; Mackenzie Brady Watson at Stuart Krichevsky Agency represented Raasch, and Joanna MacKenzie at Nelson Literary Agency represented Simmons.
