I just wanted to inform everyone of a very exciting thing: NEW DAVID GEMMELL NOVEL. I am weird, I know, but I can tell you for a fact that it is 17 days before the new book comes out. The sequel to Lord of the Silver Bow, which I reviewed not too long ago, I am really excited to read Shield of Thunder.

The second exciting novel in the bestselling Troy trilogy. Interlacing myth and history, adventure and love, this is epic storytelling at its best.

The war in Troy is looming, and all the kings of the Great Green are gathering, friends and enemies, with their own dark plans of conquest and plunder.

Into this maelstrom of treachery and deceit come three travellers — Piria, a runaway priestess nursing a terrible secret, Kalliades, a warrior with a legendary sword, and Banokles who will carve his own legend in the battles to come.

Shield of Thunder takes the reader back into the glories and tragedies of Bronze Age Greece, reuniting the characters from Lord of the Silver Bow — the dread Helikaon and his great love, the fiery Andromache, the mighty Hektor, and the fabled storyteller, Odysseus.

Sadly, Americans are going to have to wait a bit longer, but Canadians, it will be in book stores on October 24th! And yet, finding a picture of the cover is really hard considering it will be out soon.
