News of Book Three…and Four

Angry Robot

The news has broken, and you can read about it here and here, but since you are on my website I can tell you about it myself.

I am pleased to announce that Angry Robot Books have agreed to publish two more books in the series, The Courts of the Feyre. The third book in the series, Strangeness & Charm, concerns what happens when the escapees from The Road to Bedlam are released into the wider community, and the fourth brings this series to a finale with The Eighth Court.

These books will feature Niall and Blackbird as well as Niall’s wayward daughter Alex. The stories will be complete in themselves as with Sixty-One Nails and The Road to Bedlam, but will be best enjoyed as a series following Niall’s adventures through the four-book sequence.

The reason for the late announcement on the website is that I have been on a research trip to track down a rare medieval survivor, along with some surprises that even I did not suspect. All I can say at this stage is that these fit perfectly into the stories being written at the moment and you will see the fruits of that trip presently.

Strangeness & Charm is scheduled for June 2012, with the fourth book, The Eighth Court, due for release in early 2013.

    Why oh why bring the series to a close?

    I loved your books and hope you’ll keep writing about this absolutely intriguing world.

    And we will find out about Niall and Blackbird’s baby too, I hope!

    Can’t wait!
