Blurb for The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert – January 30, 2018
 

Quote

Welcome to the Hazel Wooda fiercely stunning contemporary fantasy perfect for fans of The Magicians

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. Alice's only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”

Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother's tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.

 

Blurb for The Hyena and the Hawk (Echoes of the Fall #3) by Adrian Tchaikovsky - 19 April 2018

Quote

 

The Hyena and the Hawk is the third book in Adrian Tchaikovsky's epic fantasy trilogy, Echoes of the Fall, following The Bear and the Serpent.

From the depths of the darkest myths, the soulless Plague People have returned. Their pale-walled camps obliterate villages, just as the terror they bring with them destroys minds. In their wake, nothing is left of the true people: not their places, not their ways. The Plague People will remake the world as though they had never been.

The heroes and leaders of the true people - Maniye, Loud Thunder, Hesprec and Asman - will each fight the Plague People in their own ways. They will seek allies, gather armies and lead the charge. But a thousand swords or ten thousand spears will not suffice to turn back this enemy. The end is at hand for everything the true people know.

Yeah, plus he had some sort of writers block crisis with Fall of Light, something about trying to keep it at 3 books. I mean, 2019 is still a pretty good schedule considering the size of those things.

Robert V. S. Redick,author of the Chathrand Voyage Quartet has a new epic fantasy trilogy, The Fire Sacraments,which will be published by Talos Press.The first book in the series,Master Assassins is to be published on March 6, 2018.

 

Official blurb:

Quote

“This book has everything I love: Clean, crisp worldbuilding. Characters that live and breathe. A story that teases and surprises me. I like Master Assassins so much I wish I'd written it, but deep down, I know I couldn't have written it this well.”―#1 New York Times bestselling author Patrick Rothfuss

Kandri Hinjuman was never meant to be a soldier. His brother Mektu was never meant for this world. Rivals since childhood, they are drafted into a horrific war led by a madwoman-Prophet, and survive each day only by hiding their disbelief. Kandri is good at blending in, but Mektu is hopeless: impulsive, erratic―and certain that a demon is stalking him. Is this madness or a second sense? Either way, Kandri knows that Mektu’s antics will land them both in early graves.

But all bets are off when the brothers’ simmering feud explodes into violence, and holy blood is spilled. Kandri and Mektu are taken for contract killers and must flee for their lives―to the one place where they can hope to disappear: the sprawling desert known as the Land that Eats Men. In this eerie wilderness, the terrain is as deadly as the monsters, ghouls, and traffickers in human flesh. Here the brothers find strange allies: an aging warlord, a desert nomad searching for her family, a lethal child-soldier still in her teens. They also find themselves in possession of a secret that could bring peace to the continent of Urrath. Or unthinkable carnage.


On their heels are the Prophet’s death squads. Ahead lie warring armies, sandstorms, evil spirits and the deeper evil of human greed. But hope beckons as well―if the “Master Assassins” can expose the lie that has made them the world’s most wanted men.

 

Quote

To my unspeakable joy, I can finally reveal that my new epic fantasy trilogy The Fire Sacraments has been acquired by Cory Allyn of Talos Press.

Fans of The Chathrand Voyage may well recognize my style and obsessions, but this is a different tale in nearly every respect. It’s a desert adventure, a war story, a gothic family drama and a meditation on racism, fanaticism and empire. It’s also (and no one was more surprised by this than me) damned funny in places. Some characters just notice the absurdity in all things, war very much included.
The titles:

Book One: Master Assassins
** Publication Day: March 6, 2018 **


Book Two: Sidewinders

Book Three: Siege

Master Assassins concerns two brothers who are emphatically NOT what the title suggests. Quite the opposite: they’re hapless soldiers, conscripts who love and hate each other with fairly psychotic intensity and dream only of escape—until the night they stumble into an act of unforgiveable blasphemy, get mistaken for foreign agents, and must flee into the desert ahead of the death squads of their Empress. That’s the kickoff of a pretty complex plot, in which demonic possession, lost cities and narco-medical crime syndicates also demand some stage time. Nonstop fun, in other words.

The first book is complete, and the whole trilogy is mapped out. And yes, it's as weird as they come. I tried to compose a pithy "X meets Y" phrase to encapsulate it, and the most honest one I could come up with was "Dune meets The Road meets Life of Brian." I'm not pulling your leg.

For all the readers who’ve been asking where I’ve been since The Night of the Swarm: thank you for never letting me feel forgotten! Two years in Indonesia did complicate my writing life, to be sure—but that’s another story. Thanks also to Pat Rothfuss for his amaing help and enthusiasm for this story, my new agent Matt Bialer for tireless negotiations, and Cory Allyn for making it clear from day one that he wanted this deal to happen. More details (including pub dates!) to follow.

Thank you again for your messages, your moral support, your loyalty. I'll post more news when I can.

Gratefully,

Robert
