happy release day

P.C. Hodgell’s, Seeker’s Bane, the 3rd and 4th books in the series featuring Jamethiel, are officially re-released today by Baen Books. Books 1 and 2 in the series were released in January under the name The God Stalker Chronicles. An all new novel Bound in Blood which will continue Jame’s story at Tentir is forthcoming.

Two epic novels of fantasy adventure in one volume:

Seeker’s Mask:
After an epic adventure that will become the stuff of legend, Jame has been reunited with her older brother Torisen and with her people, the Kencyrath. But when she is placed in the Women’s Halls and expected to become a normal, quiet Kencyr lady, normal and quiet are not what the Women’s Halls are going to get. Shadow Guild Assassins, ghosts, and other strange beings are soon after her, sprung not only from her own adventurous past but from the tragic, mysterious events that nearly annihilated her family in her father’s time.

To Ride a Rathorn:
Jame’s adventures continue as she arrives at the randon military college Tentir to face cut-throat competition and find even more buried, poisonous family secrets. The Kencyr have a phrase, “to ride a rathorn,” referring to a task too dangerous either to accomplish or to give up. This is true for Jame both figuratively, given her military career in a college which no Highborn girl has ever attended before, and literally, in that she is being stalked by one of these murderous, ivory-clad creatures whose mother she killed and who is now after her blood. All in all, Jame’s school days are shaping up to be anything but golden.

“Hodgell has crafted an excellent and intricate fantasy with humor and tragedy, and a capable and charming female hero. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

  1. Wow, I’ll have to get that, seeing as the first two volumes are already part of my permanent collection!

  2. Oh wow! I’ve been in love with this series since it first came out. Missed the first release of book 3 and then found that it was going for $80 used.
    Yay for re-releases!

  3. I was recommending these wonderful books to a friend just the other day….although I did include the caveat that the cover artist did seem to have a misunderstanding about the meaning of the word ‘flat’…
    They are great books, and I’m so pleased that Baen’s picked them up!

  4. Ya know, folks picking this up for the first time and expecting a traditional Baen fantasy romp based on the rack-tastic Elmore cover are gonna get a helluva surprise with that one.
    So, when’s Bound In Blood coming out? Been waiting for the next one for a while.

  5. Thanks for the reccommendation, I’ll check them out. Unfortunately, I’ll have to wait until they’re in paperback.

  6. Punctuation!
    It could just be my eyes, but it looks like the title on the cover is missing an apostrophe. Shouldn’t it be “Seeker’s” instead of “Seekers”?
