The sequel to Rising Empire: Part 1 is OUT NOW!

Front REPT2 redesignFollow the continuing tale of Queen Kasnata as she forges a reputation that will last for centuries. We asked C.S. Woolley how she felt about the latest volume in the Chronicles of Celadmore and what impact the book has on the rest of the series.

“I was really excited about going back and telling the story of characters that are mentioned and not really seen in the Shroud of Darkness Trilogy. The plan for the Rising Empire novels has been in my head since I started writing Shroud of Darkness. It isn’t so much to provide backstory, you don’t need to have read them before you read the Shroud of Darkness trilogy, but at the same time, they do go a long way to establishing a lot of the history that you read about in that trilogy. I really enjoyed getting to go back and outline the events that happened before moving on with the rest of the series. There are also things in the Rising Empire books that are going to be really important later on, so I felt that going back and getting them written was the right thing to do.”

The blood moon rises and madness is unleashed.

The nine kingdoms of Celadmore are at war. The people suffer under tyrants that strive to gain land and power in the struggle for superiority.

Kasnata, Queen of the Order and Queen of Nosfa leads her armies against the people of Delma. A war she did not want to fight, but her husband, the King of Nosfa, Mercia Nosfa VI has forced her hand.

Leinad, the heir to the throne of Nosfa and son of Kasnata, is held hostage in the city of Grashindorph where revolution is beginning. Hermia, mother of Mercia and former Queen of Nosfa leads the revolution against her son, a revolution to end the wars and tyranny that their people suffer under. Kasna and Kia are safe from their father in the Oasis of Tulna, but Duke Kelmar DeLacey, Regent of Delma, still hunts for them.

Kasnata’s empire is growing and her legacy is being forged through war, not diplomacy, a mantle her people will carry down the ages.

But there is more at work than any mortal knows, their lives, though fleeting, will form the realm and the consequences of their actions will be felt for centuries to come.

With only three more days to go until Christmas we are all celebrating our last day in the office until we get an emergency call saying the pipes have broken or until 29th December – whichever comes first. (our money is on the pipes breaking on Christmas Day).

We’ve been busy setting up lots of things to keep people entertained over the Christmas break including a discount on Shroud of Darkness! If you got to Smashwords and add Shroud of Darkness to your basket and at the checkout enter the code LV29T you’ll get the book for FREE! You can also get Rising Empire: Part 1 for free from Smashwords too.

Our web gremlins have been hard at work to bring you some all new pages for the Chronicles of Celadmore section that include the different festivals that the peoples of Celadmore have celebrated throughout history. We’ve timed it so that these pages will go live on Christmas Day and give a little bit more depth and history to the realm.

Keep your eyes on tumblr as well as the Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren page is going to be full of exclusive photos from behind the scenes of the rehearsal for the filming of Siren & Blade.

On 1st January we will also have the first of the maps of Celadmore going live so you can see the world whilst you read about it. The maps will only be going live online but there are plans to turn them into posters if we can find a high enough print quality and a large enough poster for the map size (you’ll see our dilemma when the map is up). There will be more maps rolling out during 2015 including city maps as well as maps across the eras and even the family trees for different lines of royalty.

There are three Nicolette Mace blogs going live on the blogspot blog between now and New Years Day. We aren’t sure whether there will be another 12 days of Christmas Reprise posted on Christmas Day as C.S. Woolley is keeping that under wraps but I guess we’ll just have to wait and hope just like everyone else.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone in the offices and our authors!
