Brian Staveley is the author of two well-regarded epic fantasy novels published in the last two years, The Emperor's Blades (see my review) and its sequel, The Providence of Fire. These books are the first two in a trilogy he calls the Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne. And they are really, really good!
Last month I had reported that Staveley won the prestigious Gemmel Morningstar Award for The Emperor's Blades.
The latest big news is that apparently Staveley has signed a new deal to write four more books in this universe! Apparently the books will be standalone, not a new trilogy. But as he is clearly a talent to watch in the world of epic fantasy this is exciting news.
The third book in his first trilogy, The Last Mortal Bond comes out in March 2016.
