Supposedly he’s writing according to Geneva.
Monsters released january 1 2020. Its been 2 years and 3 months.
I give it another 9 months before we get the release date, which will be for summer 2023. That will be pushed back 4 times for a month per push at which point we'll get a book riddled with errors where the story cuts off in the middle of a paragraph with the words
'to be continued'.
Right after Grim'ault plants an axe in Richter's head.
this is fucky as f*** i mean we should write to him how great book 8 was, ppl really gave him too much crap for it. Lol
so he gets motivated to continue writing
Geneva just posted what may be cover art today.
It shows a giant dragon breathing fire at someone one a horse.
I don’t think it’s legit, for one it says “April Fools” in the bottom left, and for two, Aleron is much too narcissistic to let someone else get to reveal details about book 9.
I totally forgot about April fool's day. I hate this pseudo holiday.
That would make it an awesome double-prank though, making people think its fake when its actually real.
She just posted that it was just some free desktop wallpaper. She thinks it was funny and blames the pandemic on AK not being able to write.
Yup. I saw that update on discord.
Man we had a good run, but we aren't getting that book anytime soon. And looking past book 9, the momentum for the series looks like it's running dry. It seems like they broke his spirit with the book 8 and God's eye reviews. Which sucks because book 8 wasn't bad, just long winded. And too many weirdos dwelling on a chapter they could just skip if they didn't like the joke.
I feel that aleron took too long with book 8. Which only compounded the fact that book 8 really was a reset of his world and its structure. So as a sequel it really fell flat, it literally was like only 8 days. He didn't even make it past the curse. And authors can't blame readers for not writing. All the great authors made it past any writers blocks they might have had. Like grrm, if he doesn't finish the asoiaf series, he will not be recognized historically as a great writer.
Whether or not he's "recognized as a great writer" doesn't matter to me. The Land is personally one of my favorite series. And I agree book 8 took a long time to come out, but I personally liked the new system. But my overall point in my post was it seems like the series is losing steam and I don't think we're getting to the end of it. Which sucks because there's a lot of "meat" still on the bone.
I'm pissed at the "book 9" joke, that I did not see myself... for peasants this seems like a good joke, but we are Aristocrats!
and that is just low... its like instead of discussing wine and art or politics we go to wressle in the mud and throw shit at one another...
Hmm will need to post this in discord I think.. will get banned. Worth it.
A lot of Bk8 was stuff he had initially intended for Bk7 but decided to cut to get Bk7 out earlier and reduce it's length, plus some stuff he added to increase Bk8s length and content before he got to the point where he had planned to start Bk9.
What did he cut out from book 8? Like he literally only fought some monstrous centipedes, had that imp duel which changed his soul, made a golem, the sh*t chapter, than killing some more bugs, than seeing the orcs. Like there was no chapter about the village, only 1 chapter about alma and the impending assault, so what exactly was cut from book 7? cause im not seeing it at all. I firmly believe that book 8 was about aligning the Land universe with his new series, hence the change about racial tiers.
I didn't say that he Cut things from Book 8, I said that quite a bit of Book 8 was originally ment to be in BOOK 7 but Aleron decided to not include them in Book 7 in order to reduce the book length and to get Bk7 out faster.
Extra things where added to those parts to set things up for his new Arc in The Land, aligning and setting things up with his new Books (Gods Eye, and his other upcoming Books), and some more story content to enlarge the book and getting to the point where he intended Book 9 to begin.
Richto's acsention and imp encounter took like 22% of book 8 its a lot of text.
That correlates with my assumption that the book was really mainly about getting inline with his other book series, point in case, god's eye
where book 9?
Still being written, probably.
