There is a new Circle book in Audio form coming out in August, that will not be in printed book form until next year!
I am soooo excited about Beka Cooper: Bloodhound - I think it will be January....

Her books are great.

And I agree about Chime!

Have you read the comic book mini series she wrote: White Tiger?

Yeah, chime rocks. No I haven't read that mini series.... and I am still hunting for a collection of short stories she wrote called "half human" and there is a really good short story by her in another book, it deals with a tribal people and the Shang warriors. But I'll have to go book hunting soon.... *sigh* the lisat grows with every passing conversation.  ;D

I have some of her books and i was wandering if she has a book that really tells Numair's story? I always wanted to know more about him.

If I remember, a while ago there was a rumor that she would be writing a series about him one the Beka Cooper series is finished.

I know, I really want to know more about him too.

hmmm, interesting rumor.... I hope that one's true... Numair is a favorite character of mine, I especially like the part in wild Magic where he freaks out when Daine stopped her heart so she could talk to the dolphins. ;D. That's when it really hit me that by the end of the series those two were going to be a bit closer than just teacher and pupil.

One of the reasons I love the fourth book so well is because they finally get together.

Yes, many many thanks!
I'm glad to see about all of it, but I've got to admit, the one that really piques my interest is the one that no-one else had mentioned yet, the story of Maura.  Keladry visited her fief in the Protector of the Small series, but really there was a lot more about the wolf pack that had (who had?  Grammar, grammar, Patti) been changed by Daine than there was about her.  I'd really like to see her succeeding, especially considering whoshisface, the standard bearer for the Kings' Own, & how his life was messed up by the traitors in his family.

And it's interesting to see that no-one else picked Tris as their favorite character yet, she was barely mentioned.  I think in some ways I equate her with Hermionie from HP.  Bossy, messy haired, bookish. . .   Hm, if I were bossy. . .
Going to be tough for her, trying to act 'normal' when she's seeing things on the wind.  And what's she going to do with Chime?  She (he?) isn't exactly inconspicuous.  Nor a common breed.  No secret identity when you're carting around a 1-of-a-kind glass dragon, even if Chime wasn't innocently destructive as a toddler.
Happy sigh of anticipation.

I'm really looking forward to Maura. I thought she was a really interesting character in Wolf-Speaker.
Tris is one of my friends favorite characters. (her user name on the forum is Angua). I really like Tris, but I identify more with Daja... fire.  ;D

Stopped at the bookstore the other day, & asked about the sequel to 'Will of the Empress'.  I hadn't noticed properly that it's coming out in AUDIO first.  So I wanted to remind anyone else who might be looking for it.  The bookseller I was talking with says Ms.Pierce was a voice actor, so she's got a special interest in audio productions.  It'll be at least fall of '08 before it appears in a printed form.

I remember reading Will of the Empress not to long ago. Are you sure you've got the right title? I think it was Melting Stones that came out first as an audio.
