With Glee ending last month, Chris Colfer closed a chapter in his life. 

Luckily for his Gleeks, the 24-year-old wrote a whole book to enchant them – and PEOPLE has the exclusive title and cover reveal of his latest novel, The Land of Stories: Beyond the Kingdoms. 

The fourth installment in Colfer's bestselling fantasy series for children, Beyond the Kingdoms finds twins Connor and Alex embarking on new adventure and promises to unearth secrets from their past. 

"I'm just so excited for the fans to see it. I think it might be my favorite cover and my favorite book so far," Colfer tells PEOPLE. "Brandon Dorman, who is my illustrator, is an absolute genius, and he blows me away whenever I get sent his art." 

Beyond the Kingdoms hits shelves July 7. In the meantime, here's what Colfer has to say about The Land of Stories, Glee and what's next for his career.
