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...

Please (*sheepish grin*), could you remind me what Vel-al-Amion is? I feel kind of bad for not knowing. Was it mentioned in another book and I just forgot? Anyways, I would appreciate it if you could please refresh my memory on that particular subject. :)

I just went back and re-read the Outstretched Shadow again. I now know what Vel-al-Amion is. I can't wait for this next series to come out. It's about the war between the events in the Dragon Prophecy and the Obsidian Trilogy, the second time the Endarkened tried to take over the land. Ever since I read the Obsidian Trilogy, I've been wanting to know more about that story, and of the seven who fought back an entire Endarkened army! I can't wait!


The next book in the "Dragon Prophecy" series is Blade of Empire. It will be published by Tor Books on October 24, 2017.
