Posts Tagged ‘The Maeve’ra Trilogy’

Hey Havenites! Guess what? Amelia posted on facebook today a picture of the ARCs that arrived at her house… They just so happen to be for the up-coming “Bloodwitch“, due out May 13, 2014!

Also, we have the synopsis from the Library of Congress:

Raised by vampires, a shapeshifter learns that he may be a bloodwitch who possesses rare and destructive magic that the leader of the powerful Midnight empire seeks to control.

This might not be the final cover. It could change and only have been a working cover. After all, there is not mention of it being Maeve’ra #1.

Still, we see a long green feather (likely a quetzal’s feather as that is the protagonist’s shapeshifter form), thorned vines, black tree branches, and I believe some roses petals on the ground.

What do you think of the cover? What do you think of the phrase “ONLY THE LOYAL SURVIVE”?

WANT MORE MAEVE’RA? CAN’T WAIT UNTIL NEXT MAY?

Then check out “Lilith’s Explorations of Midnight”. It’s a continuing story that Amelia is doing on her facebook page (edited):

Maeve'ra One: BloodwitchThere is going to be a short e-story published pre-Maeve’ra trilogy, currently “Untitled”.

From Amelia’s facebook on December 6th:

    It’s a short story that takes place in Midnight in the late 1700s, and focuses on a pivotal moment that essentially sets up the entire Maeve’ra Trilogy. I can’t say much more without giving away too much.

    [The] particular area [the story takes place in] is a bit of a no-man’s-land at this time in history (“owned” by multiple countries who haven’t bothered yet to do much with it, even very little native population in this century) which is why I chose it.

    The series as a whole will reference world events, but the only one that influences this particular short story is the Inquisition. It doesn’t take place during the Inquisition, though, as you might imagine from the date.

No word on when the short story will be available for purchase and download. In the meantime, enjoy your holidays and have a Happy New Year!

Also! There’s an update on our previous post, regarding ARCs for book bloggers. Check it out!

Yesterday, Amelia gave her fans a special Valentine’s Day present: the announcement of new titles officially under contract!

From the thread on her forum, Amelia says:

    I do love to be able to give good news!

    Official upcoming titles, under contract, are:

    Poison Tree (2012)
    Promises to Keep (2013)
    Maeve’ra Trilogy (2014, 2015, 2016)

    Thanks for the interest!

——————————-

Poison Tree is out this June. Check out the updated Book Page to learn more about the synopsis AND get a brief glimpse!

Promises to Keep‘s narrator is Jay Marinitch, last seen in All Just Glass! According to Amelia on her forum, “Some chapters are narrated by Brina di’Birgetta. The book starts on Christmas Eve, and some events do take place at Haven #2, so some of you can probably think what other characters are likely to show up.”

Amelia once said that Promises “will cause some major changes in Nyeusigrube if I am brave enough to publish it.” Looks like that bravery found her at last! Exciting!

The Maeve’ra Trilogy is what it sounds like: a sequel to the Kiesha’ra Series! It follows three “Children of Obsidian”, descendants of serpiente priestess Maeve (Maeve’ra literally translates to “children of Maeve”).

The Maeve’ra Trilogy is tentatively:

Bloodwitch (Vance Ehecatl’s story)
Bloodkin (Kadee’s story)
Bloodtraitor (Malachi’s story)

These stories take place in 1802 and forward… during the end of the original Midnight’s reign. We wouldn’t be surprised to see all of Amelia’s creations on display: vampires, shapeshifters (serpiente, avians, falcons, Azteka, Mistari?), Tristes, Macht witches, and the battle between Mayhem and Midnight! What old friends might we run into from the Den of Shadows series? Are any of the falcons still alive from the Kiesha’ra, nearly 2000 years before the Maeve’ra? We’ll find out in 2+ years!

Thanks, Amelia, for keeping your fans informed!
