The Fourth Volume
This year, 2016, I plan to finish writing the Dreaded King series. The fourth volume, Heir Raising, has been written and is currently being revised. Very heavily revised. The fifth and final volume is mostly written and will need even more work on the editing end, I can already foresee. But speaking as someone who has spent a good deal of time with Corinth, Charlie, Arvi, and Turner, and all the rest of them, I can tell you there's a lot of interesting happenings and surprise twists coming your way as the series finishes!
I am very excited to complete these books and let you finally find out what happens! A lot of random loose ends are going to be wound up in the last book, it should be quite fun to finally tie them all together. And you, as the reader going through the first three, never know what little fact might become important in the last book. Watch closely, my friends, and enjoy perusing the fourth volume by the end of this year, and the final part of the tale soon after!
You would assume a king forced from his throne and in hiding among the lowest dregs of his people would be upset, petulant, and decidedly depressed about it all. The Dreaded King, however, is delighted with the opportunity to escape his political duties for a time. Corinth is nearly as excited at the prospect as her husband but, what with the wailing going on every night, she is a little too worn from sleeplessness to notice. Thankfully Arvi and Turner are along to protect the exiled king, and help with Ǽstōŋ Κaŀmĕraş Ĝreğthal Hartsom, the heir to the €lænğał throne, high prince of the mighty kingdom of Ǽselthŵeś, and the joy and torment of his royal parents. One thing is evident from the first day spent in the ancient old house on the edge of slums; the new prince has a good pair of lungs. But as the days come and go, and life in The Old Mereson Place slips into a cheerful routine, unpleasant plots begin to press in on the Hartsoms and their two companions. The unknown mastermind behind the king’s near murder, and his present dangerous position, is still on the move. A new danger raises its monstrous head, threatening the entire kingdom. And only the Dreaded King of Ǽselthŵeś is equipped to combat it…with a bit of help from his clever wife and the ill-matched duo of Arvi and Turner.
