Audiobook lovers can now find Sea of Quills on Audible, narrated by R.C. Bray. While I haven’t finished my initial listen (I’m halfway through City Beneath the Kaisers right now), I can safely say that R.C. has done another fantastic job bringing Ahren to life. It’s been ten years since I penned my first Black Raven adventure and I’m very happy to finally have both books fully out.
In other news, I’ve finished the first draft of Ibenus and am making a few final edits before sending it off to Ragnarok for approval. I hope to have it in their hands by Christmas. For those asking what Ibenus is about, here’s a little about it:
After surviving a demon attack, disgraced police detective Victoria Martin tracks down the Valducans in search for answers. Recognizing her potential, and despite the warnings of the other knights, Allan Havlock, protector of Ibenus, takes her in as his apprentice.
As the Valducans travel to Paris to destroy a demon nest infesting the catacombs, the knights find themselves hunted by an Internet group intent on exposing them. Victoria, who belongs this group, must desperately play both sides to not only protect herself, but Allan whom she has begun to love. Ibenus, however, has other plans.
Currently, it’s the longest of the Valducan Series so far, beating Dämoren by about 4,000 words. Aside from Allan and Ibenus, we will also get to see Luc, Schmidt, Sam, Orlovski, Luiza, and other characters from the first two novels. We’ll also meet a few new hunters as the Order has been replenishing their ranks after the events in Dämoren. There’s a lot I’m excited about, but even on the fastest foreseeable timeline, it’ll be many months before Ibenus would release, so I’ll share more the closer we get to then.
In the meantime, please enjoy Sea of Quills.
