One of the great things about living in Cheshire is that the landscape changes so dramatically from day to day that you can’t help but be inspired. As you know, I am currently going through the second edit of The King’s Blades, and its great fun being able to bring the nuances of how you feel at any given moment to shape the mood of the book.
The King’s Blades is much wider in scope than A Shadow Falls, where the action focused almost entirely on the forest home of Councillor Eidur. Although in that novel we received glimpses of fallen Majora in the north, it is not until book two of SOTE that the characters get to venture beyond Farsee Forest.
Close friends will recognise elements of the landscape that has made it to the final draft of The King’s Blades, as Eidur and Agatha go south in search of some answers to the threat that has brought death upon the forest.
Befor January is out, my aim is to bring you a taste of this second book of Song of the Elves, by making the first three chapters available for free download.
However, if you want a glimpse today, buy A Shadow Falls in print (link at top of page) – it contains a sneak preview of the first chapter of The King’s Blades.
Stay warm & up the elves!
