Sacrifice: The First Book of The Fey Reissued!
Fans have been asking me for years when my big fantasy series The Fey would get reissued. WMG has started the process now, with wonderful covers by Dirk Berger. Sacrifice, the first book, has just appeared this month. The next six books (including the two in the Black Throne series) will appear every other month or so. The first book in the Place of Power series–a continuation of the Fey–will appear in late 2012 or early 2013. There will also be a Fey compendium around that time.
Right now, Sacrifice is only available as an e-book or an audio book, but the trade paper edition will come out in June. Watch this space for an announcement on that. You can order the e-book on Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords or in other e-bookstores. Or you can get the book in unabridged audio at Audible.com.
Ooooh, I got my hands on the French version of it lately… and I was currently reading it… When you made me realize that there is this new Retrieval Artist story in Analog. 🙂
That cover truly looks good.
Great cover, Kris. I already own a paperback copy but will probably buy it in ebook as well so I can have it for my Nook. Of course, the cover is so cool on the new own I might just have to get it in tpb as well.
The Sony Reader store describes Sacrifice as “…A Retrieval Artist Short Novel”, and there is no summary of the content. I think I’ll get it from Smashwords instead. From a royalty point of view, is one vendor better than another? [http://ebookstore.sony.com/ebook/kristine-kathryn-rusch/the-sacrifice/_/R-400000000000000383198]
Well, that’s weird. They should have gotten the information from Smashwords. I’ll let WMG know. Thanks, Mark.
And to answer your question, use as many vendors as you can on e-books. You want your readers to get the book through their favorite store.
That cover is freaking gorgeous.
There is a typo in the Smashwords extended description. “Their armies have conquered HAVE the world. Now they want the rest.” Made me stumble.
After much hyping on your website (and your husband’s), I have downloaded the sample, giving you the chance to take me away.
Thanks for the catch, Eric. Just checked to see if it’s on any other site, and it isn’t. Weird. I hope you like the book!
DeAnna, wait until you see the wrap-around cover for the trade paperback. It’s unbelievably gorgeous. I’m really pleased with Dirk’s work. 🙂
Okay, so that’s the one I already read, but still. I’m looking forward to finding out if I guessed right on all those hints in book 1…
And the new cover is quite a different tone than the one on the paperback I read! (This new one fits the book better.) I picked the book up to begin with because I was browsing my library’s small fantasy section and thought “Hey, that author’s name looks familiar…” (From Echoes, actually.)
…That’s actually how I discovered your blog, which is how I found your husband’s. Your Kristine Grayson novels are also on my to-get list, just fyi — so you do have some crossover audience between the grim Fey books and the lighter fairy tale weird ones.
I’ve waited SO LONG for this, thank you, thank you, thank you! 😀
You’re welcome, Shane. My pleasure. 🙂
Carradee, glad you’re pleased. And thanks for the notes on the crossover. That means a lot. 🙂
