I can finally state the book is done! Book three of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles is finally done! Honest!
Laws and Prophecies will be out in June – no exact date is set yet, that depends on a few factors, but I will announce it as soon as I have it!
Anyway, what do you think?
Thane Alcandhor is assailed from all sides: treason within his clan, conspiracies from kin, and turmoil due to the return of the aliens known as the Enaisi. When hit by a final onslaught—rebellion by provincial lords threatening to set up their own despotic princedoms, Alcandhor is forced to choose between upholding their laws and fulfilling ancient, haunting prophecies.
As this is book three of the series, I highly recommend backing up and starting with the first two books of the series, Sword’s Edge and Children of the Enaisi. It wouldn’t hurt to read Unlikely Prophet as well, to understand some of the history of this world and of their laws, which play such an important part of their lives and culture.
Laws and Prophecies…is indeed concerned with the details of laws and prophecies, which fundamentally affect every citizen. I would call it a novel of manners, where social and legal interpretations are essential… [t]here is indeed more to science fiction than pyrotechnics.
