No, there isn't a release date yet. A commentator suggested "two for 2017", and while I hope that the middle book will appear this year, I can certainly promise I will finish writing the trilogy this year.

After the publication of Blade of Empire and Scourge of Fate, however, the future of the World of Obsidian is up in the air, as Tor may not wish to buy any more books in the series. The (hypothetical) trilogy that would follow this one is plotted out and ready to write, and as it deals with the Seven who held Vel-al-Amion, it is a book close to my heart, and I may, absent Tor, have to turn to self-publishing to see it done. The advantage to that is that the story won't be "cut to fit"--Tor demanded I remove more than 2/3 of the manuscript of Crown of Vengeance (1000 pages), and I think the book is poorer for that excision.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I need to sack the Domains of the Western Shore...

Keep going!

Well, it's certainly exciting to hear that the books will be published! For these stories, I can endure the wait. And I must admit that this "hypothetical" trilogy was the one I was really hoping to read someday. I hope that you are able to write them--and write them the way you want. Thank you for your dedication and pursuit to give us these wonderful stories. I am currently writing a novel, and I can say with utmost honesty that your writing voice and style has inspired me more than most others authors. Hope that you're well.
