Wards of Faerie is published today in fine US bookstores!

Many of you will read the book in one sitting. I don’t know how you do it but you do it every year. For those people, the wait for Bloodfire Quest and Witch Wraith—the sequels to Wards—will be agonizing.

The one consolation you have is you don’t have to wait a year between books to get to the end of The Dark Legacy of Shannara trilogy. Bloodfire Quest will publish March 2013 and Witch Wraith will publish August 2013!

The covers for those books are featured inside the US edition of Wards of Faerie. Since many of you will be buying that book this week, I might as well show the sequel covers off in larger glory!

Here they are:

I love the Witch Wraith cover. It’s dark and moody and features what can only be a different set of Elfstones! What do they do? Who has them? How will they figure into the story? So many questions that have yet to be answered.

But they will be. In time. For now, enjoy them! They are the beginning of what will come in 2013!

Post your thoughts below. Would love to hear what you guys think of these two covers!
