I'm curious who the aunt and uncle mentioned are.

They've never explicitly said, but I'm about 97% sure that would beElara and Hugh.  At the end of Magic Triumphs, Julie says to Erra that "He" is Semiramis's grandchild as well, and lest we think that she might be referencing Conlan, Erra responds with something about his wife.  The person who best fits as "he" would be Hugh, who like Julie, has shared blood with the heirs of Shinar.  And, considering that the aunt she references here, provided her with herbs treated with magic... that fits Elara. 

Plus, I got the impression from Julie's reactions in Magic Triumphs, that we will be seeing Julie interact with Elara and Hugh when the next two Iron Covenant novels come out, and she and Hugh have some common ground...


In a related note, I KNOW why Iron Covenant is on hold... but I WANTS IT!!!

That was the conclusion I came to, after some thought, as well. And I agree with wanting the next iron covenant book.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed that we aren't getting weekly Ryder anymore; but at least we are still getting the story, AND we get snippets. 

And Emerald Blaze comes out this month.  :)

Oh, good, I've pre-ordered that, I'm pretty sure.

I was too relieved to learn that Ryder is continuing off the boards to be upset that we're not getting regular installments. I did like them, but the heading of the announcement horrified me; I thought they were dropping it entirely due to some fools going onto their forum and being rude and crude, the way some have in the past.

es, that worried me as well. If memory serves, it is coming out in January, just when I need new books most.
