Flight into Darkness is now available from Bantam Spectra in hardcover, so for any readers who have been waiting to discover what becomes of singer and Commanderie agent Celestine de Joyeuse in her quest for vengeance — or her enemy, young magus Rieuk Mordiern — the answers lie in the pages of the second volume of Alchymist’s Legacy. You can read my quick synopsis of Flight into Darkness on John Joseph Adams’ In 60 Seconds column at Tor.com.
The first volume of Celestine’s story, Tracing the Shadow, is now available in mass market paperback.
Additionally, you can read my contribution to Marshal Zeringue’s fascinating The Page 69 Test website — go take a look.
Flight into Darkness, the second — and final — book of Alchymist’s Legacy is scheduled to be published by Bantam Spectra on January 27th 2009. Here is Phil Heffernan’s gorgeous cover art:
There’s also a free extract to read.

It gives me the greatest pleasure to announce the publication of Tracing the Shadow by Bantam Spectra. The first part of the story of Celestine de Joyeuse is now available, with the second part of Alchymist’s Legacy, Flight into Darkness due to follow in a year’s time.
See the Tracing The Shadow page for more information, and links to ordering information from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. There’s also an extract available to read for free!
I’m really delighted to be able to announce that Bantam Spectra has bought Alchymist’s Legacy, a duology set in the world of Artamon.
Tracing the Shadow (Book One) will tell Celestine’s story before the events that take place in Lord of Snow and Shadows and Flight into Darkness (warning — these titles may change!) picks up the tale again after Children of the Serpent Gate.
Even though they will – I hope – be fun for readers of the first series to discover more about characters they have already met, I also intend these two books to be completely accessible to new readers. No publication dates yet, but I hope to post those soon.
So – a big thank you to all those of you who have supported The Tears of Artamon and have written asking for more. And also a big thank you to Bantam Spectra and my editor Anne Groell for making it possible.
