As I wrote last week, The Night of the Swarm by Robert V. S. Redick will be coming to bookstores soon in the UK and in the US in January 2013!
To prepare for this conclusion to one of the best written epic fantasy series set on the sea, Robert took part in creating a series trailer for The Chathrand Voyage quartet! I have to say it is pretty damn cool.
Before we get to that though, here is a bit more about the first book in the quartet, The Red Wolf Conspiracy:
Six hundred years old, the Imperial Merchant Ship Chathrand is a massive floating outpost of the Empire of Arqual. And it is on its most vital mission yet: to deliver a young woman whose marriage will seal the peace between Arqual and its mortal enemy, the Mzithrin Empire. But Thasha, the young noblewoman in question, may be bringing her swords to the altar.
For the ship’s true mission is not peace but war—a war that threatens to rekindle an ancient power long thought lost. As the Chathrand navigates treacherous waters, Thasha must seek unlikely allies—including a magic-cursed deckhand, a stowaway tribe of foot-high warriors, and a singularly heroic rat—and enter a treacherous web of intrigue to uncover the secret of the legendary Red Wolf.
Now that the series is concluding, I think it is important to talk about The Chathrand Voyage quartet and begin aiding others in finding it. I think it is worth every penny and, now that is wrapping up, a perfect series for people to begin!
Here is the trailer for the series:
I love it. I love how Robert goes into detail about how he has lived with these characters for a long time and they won’t leave him alone. He also discusses how the final book came to be and what elements he feels need to exist to make for a satisfying conclusion.
The Night of the Swarm by Robert V. S. Redick will appear in UK bookstores this month and in the US bookstores in January 2013!
