New Katherine Neville book!!

So either called ‘The Fire’ or ‘Firebird’, Katherine Neville’s sequel to ‘The Eight’ is finally coming out! Online gossip says…that it ranges from the dawn of the war of Greek Independence in 1822 to the outbreak of the Iraq War in 2003, this novel begins when the heroine of ‘The Eight’ mysteriously vanishes, and her daughter must follow a set of cryptic clues on a dangerous quest to discover who murdered her father. Coming out Oct 2008!

Is it too early to put in my order?

I wonder if she will be touring? I remember when her last novel ‘The Magic Circle’ came out in 1998 and how I hiked downtown Minneapolis to get an autograph for me, Michelle and Melissa L-B. It was super cold outside and I was carrying 3 of these huge books! And there was no line, not one person in front of me and Katherine. I remember she was very nice and I felt sorry for her that there was no one else there. The book is good, but not great like ‘The Eight’.


  1. I never did get past the intro of the magic Circle. The Eight was good enough that I’ll give her new book a chance (or at least a heafty glance).

  2. Holy crap. I work in a bookstore and occasionally just pop my favorite authors’ names into our book search to check for future releases. Imagine my surprise when I saw this come up tonight in my search.

    Absolutely can’t wait–and I hope it can live up to our expectations!

  3. Hi Iris,

    There are so many good books coming out this autumn. I cannot wait.

    Your first library card when you were three? Wow! Thats wonderful. I think I was about 7 when I got my first library card.
