The US hardcover edition of Blood Song is released today. It’s been a long time coming and thanks to everyone at Ace who worked hard to make it happen. Whilst the text has benefited from Ace’s editing process it remains substantially the same book as before with one chapter slightly expanded and another slightly reduced. There are also two new appendices: a dramatis personae and an explanation of the rules of Keschet, which keen eyed readers will remember as Princess Lyrna’s favourite game.

Pretty amazing that the first book in a new series is released as a hardcover, quite an honor! I read the kindle version of this book last year and really enjoyed it. I’m guessing it’ll probably be another year before the next one comes out?

You already know how much I loved your book. I read it after purchasing the ebook version, but I will purchase this hardcover as well. I have a select few books that I plan to pass to my children when they get a little older. This being one of them. It’s an amazing story, superbly done, and with class. I do not have to fear vulgarity etc. I advocate for your book to everyone and have listed it as my all time favorite read. Thank you sand I can’t wait for the next to be released.

Hi Jason, Yes, the current Kindle version, available via the links on the books page, has the same text as the hardcover.
