News about book 5

I’m super excited to report that the first draft of LEGEND (The Arinthian Line, book 5) has been completed this morning. It clocks in around 234,000 words (about 15% longer than CLASH).

The next stage is editing, followed by prep and launch. If all goes well, you should have the final installment in The Arinthian Line by Christmas.

It’s been an emotional ride with this book. Years of work came to a head, and somehow, it all resolved in a way that made me feel personally content as someone living in that world five days a week (could you imagine?). Yet in many ways I feel like one of the luckiest people alive; I get to adventure alongside Augum, Bridget and Leera for a living.

Email / msg me anytime, I love hearing from readers. All my best,

  1. I’m really excited for this book as it draws a close to a fantastic series than I feel regardless how many times I read it the book is as good as it was when I first read it. Thank you Sever for working so hard on getting these books done fast and well and I can’t wait to get my hands on this book!

    • Thank you, Jony, that means a lot :) It’s been a very log and arduous process that has challenged me on every level. I very much look forward to giving you that epic conclusion … and then writing trilogies in the same world and characters :)


  2. Your writing takes me into your world so easily by painting pictures or like actually viewing a movie in my mind! I can not thank you enough for writing this series. So many characters makes it hard to choose a favorite. You succeeded in fleshing all of them out not only physically but also emotionally and mentally to boot. I was thrilled to hear the news of the 5th book and final book will be here by Christmas. I was glad to read that you tied up the storyline in a good way. The characters become real and we need to know their final path whether sad , happy or indifferent! Can’t wait!

  4. With Grimdark all the rage, it’s good to see books like this resonate. It’s even better when such a decent human being (Sever) has people appreciate his excellent work. Early on in the series a character took some pretty dark actions. I sent Sever an email noting that while this character was doing these awful, adult things – the story was treating like a misbehaving child. I only relate this story because instead of that email being met with arrogance or defensiveness, it was the start of a good conversation. There is a love for this story that is obvious.

    Looksing forward to book 5 and whatever comes next!
