Just ordered The Summer Queen by EC. :)

And I'm seriously annoyed with amazon uk. Out of the blue they have excluded Spain from the super saving delivery option. wtf? :(

When is that book out in the US?
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Wow! That's a really long delay! It's good to be in the UK, getting something first for once :)

That's because Sourcebooks didn't buy it straight away, so they're a year behind. That having been said, book 2 will be out faster than in the UK because it will be nearer in the timescale. Also it will coincide with the UK paperback. UK publication is only Kindle and hardcover at the moment.
