In case you missed it, today bestselling author Julie Kagawa did a Livestream about her Iron Fey series in which she made three UBER-exciting announcements!
First, Julie will have a brand-new series coming out in Spring 2012 called Blood of Eden. She described it as a "post-apocalyptic vampire series" -- how awesome does that sound? The first book will be called The Immortal Rules.
Secondly, THERE WILL BE MORE IRON FEY BOOKS! In 2012 (probably Fall), Julie will begin a new Iron Fey trilogy starring an older Ethan Chase, Meghan's brother! We rabid fans can continue to get our fix!
Finally, Julie revealed the Iron Knight synopsis -- and it is intense, y'all.
***CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE IRON QUEEN***
Ash, former prince of the Winter Court, gave up everything. His title, his home, even his vow of loyalty. All for a girl… and all for nothing.
Unless he can earn a soul.
To cold, emotionless faery prince Ash, love was a weakness for mortals and fools. His own love had died a horrible death, killing any gentler feelings the Winter prince might have had. Or so he thought.
Then Meghan Chase—a half human, half fey slip of a girl— smashed through his barricades, binding him to her irrevocably with his oath to be her knight. And when all of Faery nearly fell to the Iron fey, she severed their bond to save his life. Meghan is now the Iron Queen, ruler of a realm where no Winter or Summer fey can survive.
With the (unwelcome) company of his archrival, Summer Court prankster Puck, and the infuriating cait sith Grimalkin, Ash begins a journey he is bound to see through to its end— a quest to find a way to honor his solemn vow to stand by Meghan’s side.
To survive in the Iron realm, Ash must have a soul and a mortal body. But the tests he must face to earn these things are impossible. At least, no one has ever passed to tell the tale.
And then Ash learns something that changes everything. A truth that turns reality upside down, challenges his darkest beliefs and shows him that, sometimes, it takes more than courage to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Julie also answered questions and read an excerpt of The Iron Knight. You can watch the full Livestream video on the Iron Fey Facebook page.
