It’s been a while since I’ve written about the querying progress for [TEE]. Mainly because there hasn’t really been any. I’ve been querying agents here and there since the last update, but no luck just yet. I’ve mostly been occupied with writing my new WIP [TT] and editing [OSAA] to get it ready to submit to Angry Robot’s open door period. Planning to get back to editing [BOR], and maybe give [TEE] another look. Could be fresh eyes would pick out some things I didn’t see before, even though I’m up to draft number 5 right now.
Deadhouse Landing is the second book in the Path to Ascendancy trilogy by Ian C. Esslemont. I’ve been looking forward to this book since I finished Dancer’s Lament, that should tell you something.
Their plans for Li Heng twarthed, Wu (soon to be named Kellanved) and Dancer make their way to the island of Malaz instead, plotting to take it over. They have big plans, and there are plans within plans, and plans that weren’t even plans until they were set in motion. They set up in a bar called Smiley’s, crewed by a group of Napan outsiders, who answer to a woman named Surly. Strange powers are at play on Malaz, and politics as well. A young priest of Drek finds his faith shaken, when he realises there is a rot within its worshipers. The Sword of Hood encounters troubles in Li Heng and sets out to Malaz, where he intends to place his plague-ridden companion in the Deadhouse. An Azath, of terrible power. The object of Kellanved’s curiosity.
It’s been months since I decided to participate in the r/Fantasy Bingo for 2017, and while it won’t finish until the 31st of March 2018, I thought it would be fun to see how many squares I’ve filled so far. Now, keep in mind I just copied and pasted the covers into this genius card format someone on r/Fantasy made for this year, so it looks a little…slapdash. Image editing is so not my jam.
