Readers and fans have been very patient. Thank you!

Katherine has been diligently working on the remaining books of the series—because no book can stand on its own. And Cold Heart has grown in scope and detail. The new book is full novel length at about 80,000 words.

Plus readers will discover all kinds of additional back matter—a list of characters, an expanded glossary, and further description about how the hours, solar stems, and months of the lunisolar calendar work together. Plus maps showing ancient Japan and detail on the areas where the events of the books take place.
