A new Infernal Devices scorches July’s YEN PLUS!

July 12th, 2013 JuYoun Posted in NEWS | 14 Comments »

The Infernal Devices returns to YEN PLUS, kicking off with the first installment of Clockwork Princess! We last left off with a marriage proposal, an untimely love confession, and the unexpected arrival of a certain little sister—you definitely won’t want to miss what new surprises await the Infernal cast!
But that’s not all! As Jacob gets to spend more time with the peculiar kids in Miss Peregrine, he’s finding more reasons to stay in the past than return to the present, especially with mysterious occurrences and a new stranger in town. A reunion may be in the works between Lord Maccon and Alexia in Soulless, but something more sinister may be waiting for Max and the flock beyond the South Pole’s snow white mountains in Maximum Ride… And who knows sinister better than Nick Gautier who, aside from having recurring visions of his own death, still needs to survive high school in Dark-Hunters!

While the girls are on a break in Soul Eater NOT! this month, there’s still so much more inside this month’s issue (you won’t believe it!) that if you haven’t subscribed yet (we can’t believe it!), you’ll definitely want to!
