Chris Wooding's EMBER BLADE sequel on temporary hold

Chris Wooding has provided an update on the status of The Darkwater Legacy, his "classic throwback" fantasy trilogy that began with 2018's accomplished The Ember Blade.

On Twitter, Wooding reports that the second book is about 70% complete and now on hold, as another top secret project has taken precedence. Like many SFF authors, Wooding isn't a full-time novelist but has a day-job, in his case as a scriptwriter for film, TV and video game projects. Initial work on the Ember Blade sequel was slowed by another top secret project that turned out to be Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, where Wooding provided writing and dialogue for various characters.

With the book in a reasonably advanced stage of completion, it hopefully won't take too long to complete once Wooding is able to resume work on it. In the meantime, we have a bit of a wait to find out what happens with both the book and also what the top secret project he's working on is.

70% done, 30% to go surely means that there is no less than 30% done and 70% to go...
