This is a direct message from Terry to his fans.
I am pleased to announce that the next book, scheduled for release in early 2005, will be the first volume in the Chainfire Trilogy. This new book, CHAINFIRE, is the beginning of the story that is the grand conclusion to the Sword of Truth series.
The Chainfire Trilogy introduces a new story line to the series which will be the core background story to the trilogy and at the same time bring to a conclusion the ongoing story of the entire series.
In order to give readers a taste of what is to come, the first chapter in the Chainfire Trilogy will be released in the paperback of Naked Empire, due out in a few weeks.
It is now official: the Sword of Truth series will conclude with the Chainfire Trilogy.
I'm really excited by this event, and by the story. It will be beyond what anyone expects, or could possibly prepare for. The first sentence opening this chilling adventure is:
"How much of this blood is his?"
All the best,
So you read it here first people. The SOT series ends in three more books.
Also Chainfire is now confirmed to be the title of book 9.
