Series – Must Catch Up with Releases

Series that are not finished but I haven’t caught up with all the released books yet (Why?):

Total 9 with 12 Published Books Out!

with approximate publication dates where known as of 12/23/19

Brandon Sanderson – Mistborn: The Alloy Era

This is the Mistborn series following Wax and Wayne.  I read the first two out of the quartet. I have not read bands of mourning yet even though it came out in 2016.  I think I will wait for #4 to come out before finishing this.  There have been some updates on the author’s website.

  • Alloy of Law
  • Shadows of Self
  • Bands of Mourning
  • The Lost Metal – expected 2021 or 2022

Brandon Sanderson – Stormlight Archive

I have not yet read oathbringer for two reasons – 1) it’s so long; and 2) I don’t really remember much of book two even thought book one’s details are fresh.  Me noggin is strange.  I know this will be good.  I know I have to read it before book four comes out.  I need motivation for this!  Maybe now that book four has a date!  Eeeek!

  • The Way of the Kings
  • Words of Radiance 
  • Oathbringer
  • Rhythm of War – expected 11/17/2020
  • Untitled #5 – expected 2023
  • Untitled #6 – ?
  • Untitled #7 – ?
  • Untitled #8 – ?
  • Untitled #9 – ?
  • Untitled #10 – ?

Curtis Craddock – The Risen Kingdoms

I started this series after this list was made.  But I still haven’t caught up!

  • An Alchemy of Masques and Mirrors – review
  • A Labyrinth of Scions and Sorcery
  • The Last Uncharted Sky – expected 8/11/2020

Deborah A. Wolf – The Dragon’s Legacy

Though I didn’t love the first book, I really did like enough of it to try the next one in the series.  The author claims that there are at least three books so I will have time to make up me mind about how things turn out.

  • The Dragon’s Legacy – review
  • The Forbidden City
  • The Seared Lands – expected 3/17/2020

Josiah Bancroft – The Books of Babel

This is scheduled to be a four book series.  I read the first book and really loved it.  Books two and three are already out.  These are slow reads so I am in no rush.

  • Senlin Ascends – review
  • Arm of the Sphinx
  • The Hod King
  • Untitled #4 – ?

Michael J. Sullivan – The Legends of the First Empire

I read age of myth and age of swords and really loved them.  This series is completed and is slowly being released by the author.  I haven’t read book three, age of war, and don’t own it yet.  Though I did pre-order book four, age of legend, in a kickstarter.  I will pre-order five and six through the next kickstarters too.

  • Age of Myth – review
  • Age of Swords – review
  • Age of War
  • Age of Legend
  • Age of Death – expected 2/4/2020
  • Age of Empyre – expected 5/5/2020

R.S. Ford – War of the Archons

  • A Demon in Silver – review
  • The Hangman’s Gate
  • The Spear of Malice – expected 6/16/2020

Scott Lynch – Gentleman Bastard

I loved the lies of locke lamora and red seas under red skies.  I am a latecomer to this series.  Book three is out.  Books four to seven are not yet.  Plenty of time to catch up.

  • The Lies of Locke Lamora – review
  • Red Seas Under Red Skies – review
  • The Republic of Thieves
  • The Thorn of Emberlain – ?
  • The Ministry of Necessity – ?
  • The Mage and the Master Spy – ?
  • Inherit the Night – ?

Sophie Davis – Timewaves

I really enjoyed the syndicate and then never checked up on when the next book was out.  Apparently books two and three are out.  No word on book four yet.  This is about time travel and is self-published.  I will pick up the next one and some point and go from there.

  • The Syndicate – review
  • Atlic
  • Legends Untold
  • Dust into Go – ?
