Brent Weeks’ Lightbringer series expands to four books
September 11 marks the release date for Brent Weeks’ latest novel, ‘The Blinding Knife’, the second book in his ‘Lightbringer’ series which kicked off with ‘The Black Prism’. To celebrate, Orbit Books announced on their blog that Weeks is actually planning to expand the series to four books from the three books it had originally been intended as.
“I’m happy to tell you that the Lightbringer Series will be four books. (No, don’t worry, I’m not floating down the Never-Ending Series River, though yes, I do feel the current!) I was always torn between three books and four for this series, and as I got working on book three, I realized I was going to have to cut way too much great stuff to fit the story into three books, so Orbit and I have agreed to a fourth book. Progress on the next one has been fantastic.” – Brent Weeks.
There is also a new map of the Seven Satrapies that has been "newly awesomofied", according to Brent Weeks’ blog.
All in all, this is good news for Brent Weeks’ fans who will be getting even more from their favourite author than they’d been led to believe. Hopefully Weeks won’t float too far down the "Never-Ending Series River", but the author has proven himself already so one can only hope he’ll continue to do so.
