Jacqueline Carey, author of the Kushiel series, told SciFi Wire the 6th book, Kushiel’s Mercy, will be the last of the series. From the interview: “I’m working on a new trilogy set in the same milieu,” she said. “It takes place several generations later and features a new cast of characters. Naamah’s Gift is the working title of the first book, and it will likely be out in 2009. I know some fans are reluctant to say goodbye to beloved and familiar characters, but I think it’s time to let them pass gracefully into legend and begin a whole new adventure.”
Kushiel’s Mercy was released in hardcover 12 Jun 2008. [Amazon link]
Michele Hauf (aka Alex Archer) has a cover! Swordsman’s Legacy is scheduled for release 11 Nov 2008. This is the 15th book in the Rogue Angel series that began with Destiny released in 2006.
