A Conversation in Blood by Paul S. Kemp is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. This is the third book in the Tales of Egil and Nix series, but it’s also a good jumping in point for new readers. Click here to read our full review.

Nix is a nimble thief with just enough knowledge of magic to get into serious trouble. Egil is the only priest of a discredited god. Together, they seek riches and renown, but somehow it is always misadventure and mayhem that find them—even in the dive bar they call home. And their luck has yet to change.

All Nix wants to do is cheer Egil up after a bout of heartbreak. And, of course, strike it so rich that they need never worry about their combined bar bill. But when the light-fingered scoundrel plunders a tomb and snatches mysterious golden plates covered in runes, the treasure brings terrifying trouble. Pursued by an abomination full of ravenous hunger and unquenchable wrath, Egil and Nix find all they hold dear—including their beloved tavern—in dire peril. To say nothing of the world itself.

Paul S. Kemp Update

Paul S. Kemp’s third Tales of Egil and Nix novel was originally set for a summer 2014 release, but that was prior to Del Rey buying the series from Angry Robot Books. Paul posted an update on Twitter indicating A Conversation in Blood will be out next year, and in the interim, something else will be coming out.

Roqoo Depot: @Paulskemp is ‘A Conversation in Blood’ still on schedule for this summer?

Paul S. Kemp: @RoqooDepot Next year, because something else will come out in the interim. :-)

With the recent release of Paul’s Forgotten Realms novel The Godborn, which was book two in The Sundering series, I thought maybe that meant we would be getting a follow up book. Apparently not.

Roqoo Depot: @Paulskemp hmm, does that mean will be getting another Realms novel before Egil & Nix?

Paul S. Kemp: @RoqooDepot Not a Realms novel, no. WotC and I are having a family dispute.

So, Kemp fans can look forward to getting another book soon, but it won’t be Forgotten Realms or Tales of Egil and Nix.

Today we wish a happy birthday to author Paul S. Kemp. Paul is making today extra special by throwing an online book party for his characters Egil and Nix. To participate, Paul is asking readers who have not read his two Egil and Nix books, The Hammer and the Blade and A Discourse in Steel, to go check them out.

For those who have already read them, Paul wants your reviews on Amazon or Barnes & Noble (you can check out our review of The Hammer and the Blade and A Discourse in Steel right here on Roqoo Depot). And for those die hard fans who have already bought and reviewed both books, be sure to share the word.

Del Rey has acquired the next two Tales of Egil and Nix stories: A Conversation in Blood and a yet to be named book Paul S. Kemp is calling Ass Kicking Sword and Sorcery IV: This Time it’s Personal. Interesting to note that Rey editor Frank Parisi made the acquisition. Paul of course had some fun things to say about the announcement.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve sold two more Egil and Nix novels, A Conversation in Blood andAss Kicking Sword and Sorcery IV: This Time it’s Personal (not the actual title; but really, shouldn’t it be?) to Del Rey. Here’s the link to the announcement.  As you can see, I’ll be working with the most excellent Frank Parisi, with whom I’ve had several gun duels and two whiskey-drinking contests.  Oh, and he also edited my Old Republic Star Wars novel, Deceived.
