Tor Books has scheduled Blade of Empire: Dragon Prophecy Book Two, as a FALL 2017 release.

Only a year to wait...

Blade of Empire

Each time I've reread Crown of Vengeance, I pick up on something else that i missed the previous times. I've probably reread it 5 times and listened to it on audio at least that many, so really anxious to get my hands on "Blade of Empire" Book 2 of the Dragon Prophecy. The excerpts you provided (that were edited out of Crown of Vengeance) are extremely beneficial and filled in background, characters and circumstances. I can appreciate that the publisher thought it made the volume overly cumbersome or lengthy, but I personally would prefer the story as it was originally intended. After all, JRR Tolkien's The Silmarillion has been published and it's sold quite well.

Due to the many excisions, each sentence and paragraph of Crown of Vengeance is integral to grasping nuances of character and story. It's not a book that you can skim.

Any thoughts on providing an ebook with those missing passages that Tor didn't include? Not sure if that is possible or even feasible, but I would definitely purchase that.

So once again, sigh.... I am waiting for the next update and of course the continuing saga on publication dates.


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