It looks like Goldsboro Books has sold out of its signed and numbered hardcovers of The Wolf’s Call. Thanks to everyone who bought one and commiserations to those who missed out. I’ll be running another mailing list giveaway for both signed copies of both the UK and US editions so be sure to sign up to make sure you don’t miss out.
Some readers have requested a recap of the Raven’s Shadow trilogy to refresh their memory before diving in to Vaelin’s next adventure. There are plenty of reminders in the book to cover what has gone before but if anyone wants a detailed summary I can’t do better than the Raven’s Shadow Wiki. (Thanks to everyone who put this together).
Also, I know some of you have or intend to re-read the previous books, if so you might want to check out the reading order here to work out the best place to start.
Reminder – if you like to read to a musical accompaniment don’t forget the Draconis Symphoniacomposed by the terribly talented Will Musser. Will has also composed some music for The Wolf’s Call, so watch out for that closer to the release date.
