Hello faithful readers, and good news: you can cancel the search parties. I’m alive. And I’ve got a new book for you—even better, it’s the start of a new series in a familiar world.

TSC-300x450THE SEALED CITADEL is set in the same universe as the Cycles of Arawn and Galand, but in an earlier time. A much different one. A time when Cally, the man who would later mentor Dante Galand, is just a young sorcerer himself. Yes, that’s right. It’s about Cally.

This is the first in a new series of what will probably be three or four books. To get it off to a nice start, and for fun, it’s currently just $0.99 on Amazon (UK version here) or can be read through Kindle Unlimited. It’s out on paperback, too.

Audiobook questions: will there be one? Yes. Will Tim Gerard Reynolds be narrating? Also yes, and it should be awesome to hear him voice young Cally. I think he’s slated to start recording any day now, so that ought to be out sometime this summer.

Using my almighty power of “having done this for a while,” I foresee another question: Galand #6? Yep, on the way—in fact, I’m almost done with the first draft, so expect the ebook in June, with Tim starting the audio narration shortly thereafter, making for a probable autumn release.

Starting a new series is always both exciting, but also a total gut-wrencher. You never know if it’s going to take off, or, to paraphrase a wise robot, flop like an automated flopping machine. With that in mind, I am extra grateful to everyone who picks this one up. Getting to write Cally’s voice again was a blast. I’m excited to see where the rest of his story leads.

As always, thanks for reading,

– Ed

    First of all. I was extremely excited to get the amazon update email earlier today. I insta-bought the book.

    Is there any possibility of re-releasing the whole Cycle saga in hardcover? Or is it likely going to just stay as a paperback & ebook?

  • Christian says:

    Will #6 in the cycle of galand be the last? I really hope not I’m so invested in the lives and adventures of Dante and blaze I never want it to end!

    • Ed Robertson says:

      I’m planning for this series to end on book seven, so you’ve got a couple left. I love the characters and world too, so I might do more with them at some point, but I’m not sure just yet.

  • Christian says:

    HA, was worried you would leave us hanging on Book 6. As for THE SEALED CITADEL, you are off to a great start. Cally is a character that is very interesting. Be nice to read how he meet the old lady in Collen, lol.

    I seriously cannot wait for the rest of the cycle of galand to come out on audiobooks. I think Tim was the perfect choice for the narration such an amazing story. I powered through all of the cycle of arawn and the cycle of galand audiobooks in a little over two weeks. my favorite series to date! Can’t wait for the sealed Citadel audiobooks!! Keep up the amazing work!
