Good news for fans of Song of the Sword: the Shards of Excalibur series has a new home!

Coming from Coteau Books in May 2014: a brand-new revised edition of Song of the Sword, first book in the epic Shards of Excalibur YA fantasy series. The second book, Twist of the Blade, will follow in the fall of 2014 and the remaining three books at six-month intervals thereafter.

The Shards of Excalibur tells the  story of Ariane Forsythe, a teen from Regina, Saskatchewan, who discovers she is the heir of the Lady of the Lake of Arthurian legend. With the help of her unexpected sidekick, Wally Knight, she must discover all five pieces of King Arthur’s legendary sword Excalibur before Merlin, in his present-day guise as Rex Major, wealthy computer magnate, can do so…and launch a war to seize control of both Earth and his own world of Faerie.

Watch this space for more details! This website will grow as the series moves forward again.

    My son read Book 1 and is already hooked on the series. The publishing house said that book 2 would be released in the spring of 2012 – still no update. Any idea when the 2nd book will be released? Thanks
