Hey guys! Exciting news for those who have been following my writing (yes - both of you. lol! XD). I am today glad to announce details of my forthcoming book - and the next chapter in the Draconica series.
The next book in the series will be called Final Ragnarok. Remember how Dolores told Daniar in Legacy of the Dragonkin that "She is coming... and Final Ragnarok will follow"... Well next book you'll find out what Final Ragnarok is! Eagle eyed readers may have noticed that Final Ragnarok has been mentioned in my OTHER books, so this is something that I've been planning for a long time.
Final Ragnarok is set to be my most epic book I've written so far - with a vast storyline that has a scale I've never attempted before. I will probably tell this story in two books, the first one out next year and then the other part a year later. I intend to make it the most balls out story so far, with bigger battles - and more personal and painful conflicts. I won't say much, but many of your fav characters may not survive this one! This book is basically my The Empire Strikes Back and I hope to try and capture the same dark and bleak elements that film had.
But don't worry - it won't all be bleak! I'll still keep in the Manga style humour that you guys have come to like. And many of your favourite characters will return in this book. Along with plenty of new ones! This book arc also will answer some questions that were raised in the last few books - Who are The Kabal? Who is the Man in Shadow? How did Daniar use that secret power before? Why does Benji have two dragon powers? And, most importantly, will Zarracka be able to go through this book series whilst keeping her clothing ON? XD
Not only that, but I can reveal that I have a brand new artist on board - Carlos Montenegro. I've only known him less than a month, but he's already turned in some amazing artwork so far! In fact I can share some teaser artwork for you now!
Legacy of the Dragonkin villain returns in Final Ragnarok, with new antagonist Rapture. Who is Rapture? Let's just say that her true identity will shake the Dragonkin to the core!
New character Baxter Coyote takes centre stage in this picture! A mercenary hero that believes himself to be a brave warrior - in actual fact he is an abject coward! He becomes Zarracka's "bodyguard" in the story - leading to some hirlarious moments! Odd couple? I'd say so!
Benji Dragonkin meets another new character, the Shining Hunter - a knight from a devoutly religious order that seeks to stop Final Ragnarok. But who is she really? Ah, now that would be telling! XD
Kalak's mind is twisted as he becomes possessed by a Dark monster inside him (and no, it's not Mordak this time). Those who followed Daniar and Kalak's relationship - better have some hankies ready, this will be one of the most painful moments in Daniar's life.
I'm hoping to have the book out sometime next year - but no date has been set as of yet. I will update this blog as and when I can - so keep your eyes peeled!
