Several years ago (actually, eleven according to my LibraryThing catalog) I read a book I very much enjoyed. The setting felt fresh and I really, really wanted to read the next book in the series. A continuation never did show up at the public library, where I had gotten the first book, and eventually I forgot about it.

Then I saw an enticing book cover in the author’s signature line on a forum, clicked on it, and discovered it was the third book in the series I had wanted to read over a decade ago. Oh joy!

The first book, Children of the Shaman, was released here in the US, but apparently the second book, The Glass Mountain, was only released in the UK. 🙁 The third book, Malarat, just came out.

I’m still waiting for the second e-book to become available, but it should be out Real Soon Now on Kindle. The author, Jessica Rydill, is releasing the e-books herself, and the covers are striking.
