In many ways, A Plague of Wizards is a bookend volume for Senta and the Steel Dragon. In chapter ten, there is a retelling of events in book 1, The Voyage of the Minotaur, from the point of view of a different character. There is also a great deal about Senta’s cousins, some of whom haven’t been seen since The Voyage of the Minotaur. However, the book doesn’t tell the final story. There will be more volumes– probably two. I think ten novels (plus the novella prequel) make for a complete series. In any case, the story doesn’t really end until we find out the final resolutions for the second generation Dechantagnes, and of course for Senta and the Steel Dragon.
I’m not going to jump into another book though. I have two many other partially written manuscripts that I really want to finish– including A Great Deal of Patience and 82 Eridani. Keep an eye out for A Plague of Wizards on Oct. 28th, and remember Kanana: The Jungle Girl comes out Nov. 25th.
