Crimson Wind (sequel to Bitter Night)

For those of you wondering just what Crimson Wind will be about, here’s a little blurb:

Max is a Shadowblade—a supernatural warrior created to serve and protect her witch, Giselle. She was made to kill and she’s very good at it. But there are some troubles you can’t solve with a gun and Max has run smack into one. Since the devastation of her covenstead four weeks ago and the revelation of the coming apocalypse, Max has been itching to bring her family back to the safety of Horngate. The only trouble is they think she was murdered thirty years ago, a belief Max has done everything in her power to cultivate. So she’s naturally a little worried about how they’ll feel when she tells them she’s alive and never bothered to get in touch. And oh by the way, mom and dad, she isn’t human anymore. As if that wasn’t enough to worry about, the Guardians have made a major move in their war against humanity and now it’s a race to save her family before they are swallowed by a a blood storm of wild magic. That is, if Max can even get off the starting block. First she has to deal with an enraged wannabe lover who can destroy worlds, a pissed off mage, and a pig-headed witch.

ETA: I originally said this would be out in October 2011, but I was mistaken. I’m fairly certain it will be out in March of 2011. Sorry for the mixup! If that changes, I’ll let you know.

      I hope so too! I was mistaken though. I think the date for publication is actually March 2011. So not quite as long a wait 😉

    Great news!! Of course October seems SO long. 😈 I may have to reread Bitter Night before then!

      I was wrong. I think it’s actually out March 2011. So not quite so long!

      Glad to hear it! But I was wrong on the date. Looks like it will be March 2011, not October. So a little sooner 😀

    I absolutley love Bitter Night and I think I re-read that book 3 times now. Thank you for writing such a wonderful heroine. I’m so glad the next one is coming out soon, but March 2011 is soooooo farrrrr away.

    I know I’m over eager, but will there be a third book? Will it be as long of a wait as the second one? Thanks.
