Up Next From Thea Harrison

It has been a long, long time since we have had any news on the publication front from Thea Harrison. Her last traditionally published Elder Races releases came out in December 2015 – and then there was nothing. We did hear that she was making the jump to Indie publishing, but there was no word as to what or when or how…until today. The official cover and blurb reveal was done over on RT Book Reviews.

It looks like Thea has moved things over to the UK for her next three-book arc, which will start on December 13th with the release of Moonshadow

moonshadowSynopsis…

Her past is a blank, her future uncertain….

Recovering from a shooting, LAPD witch consultant Sophie Ross leaves her job and travels to the U.K. to search for answers about her childhood. When she encounters a Daoine Sidhe knight of the Dark Court, she becomes entangled in an ancient hatred between two arcane forces.

He has given his body and soul to fight for his people….

Barred from his homeland along with his surviving brother knights, Nikolas Sevigny is embroiled in a conflict that threatens everything he holds dear. Only by uniting his people’s resources can they hope to prevail against Isabeau, the deadly Queen of the Light Court. He will do anything and use anyone to return home to Lyonesse.

When Nikolas encounters Sophie, he sees a tool to be used. The insouciant witch might be the key to unlocking every passageway that has been barred to the knights of the Dark Court, even as a fascination for her takes root in what’s left of his soul.

Sophie has no intention of becoming anyone’s pawn, yet the fierce Nikolas is so compelling, she can’t deny the temptation that endangers her guarded heart.

As magic threatens Lyonesse, Queen Isabeau unleashes her merciless Hounds, and Nikolas and Sophie become embroiled in a race for survival. Meanwhile, the passion that ignites between them burns too hot to be denied and quickly turns into obsession.

Thank goodness they both know better than to fall in love…

Moonshadow will be followed by Spellbinder and Lionheart, but no release date has been announced for them as yet. I have to say, on the cover side of things, I like this one. It is way better than many other Indie covers I have seen. I am not sure about any format other than e-book, but hopefully us print-edition people will be in the loop, too.

I know the trend right now seems to be for authors with long-running series to put out books focused on completely new characters, but I am not sure how I am feeling about that. It is taking already large and involved worlds, with many known and loved characters begging to get their stories told, and making them even bigger. And it means we have to wait longer for stories for characters like Grim or Alexander, or even Eva. Maybe things will cycle back to the US crew after this trilogy, who knows?

      I had to stop and look up the names for the new one, too, since I couldn’t remember if we had been introduced to them before. That is part of the problem with so long between installments, I guess.

      • Dawn says:

        If you’re signed up for her emails or blogs, she sends out short stories (like 3-5 pages) occasionally, and later posts them on her website, so there hasn’t been complete radio silence.

        But if I remember correctly, didn’t she actually move and things got messed up during the process or something? Or maybe I’m totally losing it…

  1. Dawn says:

    Ah, but remember, Liam is going to be attending school in the UK, so he will have bodyguards with him (most likely). That means this arc will probably have some familiar faces at some point, and if Ms. Harrison tosses in a few novellas in between the novels, as she has in the past, we may get those stories you were lamenting about sooner than you think.

    • kaleigha says:

      I hope so, because if there is no connection to established characters in some way it doesn’t really feel like the same series. I found that was the case when she did Xavier’s story, too – it didn’t feel like part of the main series to me.

  2. Maria says:

    Finally! I do love her books and I hated her radio silence. I thought the same as Dawn when I read your post. I’m sure we’ll see more about Liam and the US troupe. (well, at least I hope so)

    There should still be a connection to the US people especially now that Beluviel is part of the Wyr demense. Wasn’t there a part in her book detailing how she ran afoul of Isabella the Light Fae Queen?

    • kaleigha says:

      And I believe Melisandre’s mother was the sister of the Dark Fae Queen. Not sure if she will play a role somehow, but I was interested in finding out more about the guy she used as an assassin.

      • renpuspita says:

        I just read all Elder Races book start from Kinked so my memory still fresh. It’s not Beluviel that ran from Isabeau, but Tatiana, the Queen of Light Fae of US Demesne. The Daoine Sidhe court originally from UK or Ireland, is separated into two, Dark Court ruled by Oberon (that once have affinity for Beluviel) and Light Court by Isabeau. I believe that Nikolas Sevigny is a new character, because in Shadow’s End, it’s just mention two name of Oberon’s Knight, Thorn and Ashe.

        As for Morgan le Fae that appear in Spellbinder, his already mentioned in Pia Does Hollywood
