Alex Verus #12 – Risen Covers & Release Date

It’s been a while since I mentioned Alex Verus #12, so here’s a look at the US and UK covers of Risen, the final book in the series!

UK version:

US version:

Release dates have also changed slightly.  The UK version is still coming out on December 2nd, 2021, but the US version’s release date has been moved up a week, to November 30th, 2021.  (I guess my US publishers really don’t like anyone else getting my books first.)

Less than five months to go!  As usual, I’ll put the first chapter of Risen online a month or two before its release, probably some time in October.

    Love the covers!

  2. Marco says:

    December 2nd should be enough time to read the whole series once over.

    So looking forward to the final chapter!

    US release date is my birthday! Please thank your publishers for the gift.

  4. Hugh Lovell says:

    … and thanks to you for the series!

    I am simultaneously so happy for a new book but sad also because its the last one. Congrats on the cover art it looks great !

  6. Celia says:

    Awesome!!! I love both covers! And November 30th is my anniversary so I already booked the day off work!!! Really this is absolutely perfect. (Though my husband may suffer from the mistaken belief that we have better things to do on our anniversary than read all day!)

    Any chance you could tell us the first sentence of Risen? (Jim Butcher will usually do this when asked at q&a’s, but I couldn’t ask at your German q&a cause it might have spoilers for them.:)

    Dare I ask when the audible release is scheduled?

  8. Celia says:

    What Mindy said! 🙂 The audiobooks are great.

  9. Patrick Hulman says:

    maybe you can convince your publisher to print the entire series in hardcover or go to someone like grimoak press or subterranean press

  10. Luke says:

    +1 Mindy’s comment. Love the Audible versions, just binged the whole series and can’t wait for Risen!
    I also just found the novella you published here, and I am looking forward to more of those.

  11. Benedict says:

    The audiobooks usually come out at the same time as the ebook and paper versions. My audio publisher doesn’t communicate with me directly, though, so I can’t give you any firm dates.

    Here to pile on the (que the whiny 7 year-old voice) “When will it be released on Aaauuuddibleeee??!!!” 😉

  13. Holly says:

    Oh, boo! I just realized that’s YOU in the last comment, mea culpa!

  14. James says:

    The last book in the series and Alex will be greatly enjoyed and missed. Thank you for letting us into the world of a fantastic character. Regardless of how it ends, its been a great adventure! Cheers.

    Just a random thought while I wait for “Risen” to come out… If Alex had chosen to walk away from it all he would have found an ideal place for retirement here:

    Nice shadow realm, a lot of fascinating magical creatures and a camp manager who is a sensitive with a family curse and an is an ideal candidate for a Dark apprentice.

    Can’t wait for Risen to come out on audiobook. I have been listening to the last 11 books one after the other and tonight well it happened I finished Forged and now I have to go wait for the next book – this hasn’t happened before lol! Love the book covers as well
