Solaris is proud to announce that New Zealand author Emily Gee is writing the sequel to The Sentinel Mage.
The Fire Prince will be published in the UK, Ireland, and North America in September 2014.
The Fire Prince will be the second book in The Cursed Kingdoms Saga.
Since The Sentinel Mage was published to great success in 2011, fans have been clamouring to know when the next book in the series will be published.
Little did readers know that for much of the time since then Gee had chosen to work for one of New Zealand’s national parks, far from the internet and mains power. Readers are now set to find out what happened to The Seven Kingdoms next.
Solaris editor-in-chief Jonathan Oliver said: “It’s brilliant to have Emily back with us for what promises to be a thrilling addition to her fantasy saga. Emily’s writing is entertaining and progressive and I’m certain that this latest instalment in The Seven Kingdoms saga will show why she is one of the rising stars of fantasy.”
The Seven Kingdoms are in the grip of an ancient and terrible blood curse. Thousands have died. Thousands more will die. Only one man can end the curse. The fugitive Osgaardan prince, Harkeld, is that man—whether he likes it or not. But the bounty on Harkeld’s head is high. He has outrun his father’s soldiers, but he can’t outrun the assassins who seek him—Fithians, trained in the art of killing. Even the Sentinel mages who guide and guard him are no match for Fithian steel. Faced with the ever-present threat of death, Harkeld must learn to use his fire magic. Or die. Meanwhile, dark plots are unfolding in Osgaard’s gold-tiled palace, snaring Princess Brigitta and those she loves. And in the eastern kingdoms, young orphan Jaumé journeys with a band of mysterious and dangerous fighters, heading north for a purpose he does not understand.
