FantasyBookReview is thrilled to announce the release of the next book in Josh Erikson’s Ethereal Earth series, BLIGHT MARKED, and we have the cover reveal and pre-order info below! Erikson’s first book of his series, HERO FORGED, was our Senlin Saftey Net choice in SPFBO4 and we’ve been fans of the charismatic leads, demon battles, and sharp humor ever since.
Here’s what we can expect from BLIGHT MARKED (Ethereal Earth book 3):
Becoming a target is never great, but it’s a little worse when the people trying to kill you are technically the good guys.
Gabe escaped the Ether with the ultimate prize, and he thought that meant he was done with deadly cosmic games. But the nightmares infesting his life have different plans, and they’re not asking nicely before dragging him back in. It turns out holding all the power in the universe doesn’t mean much if you have no idea what to do with it.
So together with Heather, he embarks on a frantic race to collect the remaining six Iglas and stave off the coming darkness. And in the process, they discover just how much deeper their problems go. With new threats lashing at them from every side, and old ones tightening their grip, it becomes a contest against chaos to see who will dictate the future of existence: the assorted protectors of Earth, an all-consuming darkness…or a conman who would really rather not.
BLIGHT MARKED is the third book in the Ethereal Earth series, an ongoing story about reality, illusions, and all the ridiculous crap in the gray space between.
Release day is MARCH 11 for both print and ebook. There will also be an audiobook, once again narrated by Erikson, scheduled for launch the same day on Audible.
