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...

Thank you for the update! Can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy. It's a shame Tor is cutting into the story so much and hope to one day read the intended versions. I hope your write the next trilogy as well. The world you have created is wonderful. I really think the Obsidian Trilogy would make a great movie as well! Be true to your story and please keep writing!

Making Movies

I remember Mercedes once saying that she didn't think her novels would make good movies and for most of them I would agree with her. That being said, I believe that the Obsidian universe and it's various histories would make and excellent transfer to either the cinema or television medium. Perhaps as a replacement for Game of Thrones when it finishes it's run? :)


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