Throne of Blood comes out on June 21st! Why am I releasing such a wintry book at the peak of summer? Let’s not forget that about 12% of all people live in the Southern Hemisphere where June 21st is the winter solstice ❄ ❄ ❄ I myself spent a semester in New Zealand and have nice wintry memories from June.
Okay, I initially wanted to release the book on Dec 21st last year but got delayed, and now I’m trying to come up with a deep and profound explanation. 😳
The book is almost here, but while we wait, here are the next two chapters:
Just two months left until Throne of Blood‘s release! And since I don’t want to make you wait that long, I thought I could already start sharing the first chapters. Here is Chapter One, and Chapter Two will follow soon.
This is the third book in the Nightfall series. If you’ve missed the previous books, it makes more sense to start with the Kingdom of Ashesfree sample
The chapter hasn’t gone through final proofreading. Please forgive any typos
Photos are mine. They are not a part of the book, just a little bonus for people reading here 😊
And now it’s time to introduce a new Throne of Blood character. Meet Almaz:
She is the first albino character in the Nightfallseries. She also happens to be the first amputee character we meet. Combining these two facts about her, you can already take a guess about her complicated backstory.
It’s time for another Throne of Bloodcharacter reveal. Meet Rada!
She is in the book for only a short while, but her character makes an impression. She is related to a certain mythological being. If you’ve read Men and Monsterscarefully, you should be able to guess which one 🙂
I recently shared that I extremely spontaneously decided to move to Denmark. And, as expected of a quick relocation, my last two days in Berlin were extremely hectic. Finishing packing and shipping stuff, selling and giving away furniture, repainting the flat, running around the city on different errands. But on top of all else, there was one more thing to take care of: I found out I still had four Kingdom of Ashes and one Men and Monsters paperbacks.
I had initially ordered all of them planning to run more Goodreads giveaways as I’ve done in the past. But then Goodreads changed the giveaway rules, and this was no longer possible. And so I stuffed them in a cupboard to wait for the time I find a way to run a giveaway or find interested bloggers, and I almost forgot about their existence until it was time to move.
But what was I going to do with the books? I couldn’t possibly take them with me; I didn’t have an extra molecule of space in my luggage. And there was no time to mail them around. And so, I came up with an idea: I would sign them and donate them to open phone booth libraries around the city. And so I spent half of a crazy day running around the city, dropping off books, but I hope it was worth it!
Read on to see how to get them in case you have trips to Berlin planned soon!
Throne of Blood, Book 3 in the Nightfall series, is approaching completion, and I can already tell you a secret…
Chapter One, “Legend” will be the first chapter in the series from Vlad’s point of view. While we have seen his story in Men and Monsters, we hear it through Myra and through what he chooses to tell her. Now, for the first time, we will properly get inside his head.
I have two questions for you, and if you answer correctly, you’ll enter a lottery to win a Men and Monsterssigned paperback!
Where is Vlad in the opening chapter of Throne of Blood?
What is he doing there?
How on earth should you know that, you ask. Simple! You just need to guess where I am:
