Attack On Titan YA Novel Out in August 2018

This original YA novel features all-new characters and a new story set in the world of Attack on Titan, the pop culture phenomenon and manga mega-hit.

Publishers Quirk (and Kodansha) announced Rachel Aaron’s novel Garrison Girl at C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) yesterday.

‘When the last vestige of the human race is threatened by unstoppable carnivorous giants, a brave young woman decides to defy her wealthy family and join the military garrison to battle humanity’s enemies. But Rosalie Dumarque soon finds that her dream of escaping the protection of Wall Rose not only leads to bloody sword fights with monsters, but exposes her to other dangers. Can she earn the trust of her fellow soldiers, stand up to a corrupt authority, navigate a forbidden romance…and cut her way out of a titan’s throat?

Fans of the manga and anime, as well as YA readers new to the series, will devour this immersive and engaging experience of the Attack on Titan world.’


Rachel Aaron is the author of ten fantasy and science-fiction novels. Nice Dragons Finish Last hit number one on the best-seller list. One Good Dragon Deserves Another debuted at the top of’s Fantasy and Urban Fantasy categories. Her e-book 2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love offers practical writing advice for anyone who’s ever longed to increase their daily writing output.

We hope to bring you a review later this year of the novel (possibly the first AoT tie-in fiction to be written and published in the US?)
