If you’re like us at all, you’ve been loving Brian Staveley’s Chronicles of the Unhewn Throne trilogy, and it’s finally coming to a close tomorrow, when The Last Mortal Bonds officially arrives in bookstores.
Here’s what the book is about:
The trilogy that began with The Emperor’s Blades and continued in The Providence of Fire reaches its epic conclusion, as war engulfs the Annurian Empire. The ancient csestriim are back to finish their purge of humanity; armies march against the capital; leaches, solitary beings who draw power from the natural world to fuel their extraordinary abilities, maneuver on all sides to affect the outcome of the war; and capricious gods walk the earth in human guise with agendas of their own. But the three imperial siblings at the heart of it all—Valyn, Adare, and Kaden—come to understand that even if they survive the holocaust unleashed on their world, there may be no reconciling their conflicting visions of the future.
I’ve been reading it this last week, and it’s pretty excellent.
Phoenix Books in Burlington will be hosting the launch party, starting at 6:30pm. This is a ticketed event ($3, which includes a $5 coupon for any of Staveley’s books. Staveley will be raffling off several KETTRAL t-shirts (which are pretty fantastic) and reading deleted scenes from the books.
