STORMLORD RISING is of course the second book in the Watergivers trilogy, and HarperVoyager have put up Chapter 1 here, and will put up Chapter 2 Friday the 22nd, just to get you all worked up enough to put your orders in at your favourite bookstore, right? The release date in Australia is March 1st, 2010. Which is about when Book 1, The Last Stormlord, has its release in US and UK.
And above is the cover, the work of the wonderful UK fantasy/SF artist Vincent Chong.
Oh, and for all you cold country peoples, that white stuff is not ice ... it's salt.
