Risen Release Week, US Edition

The UK & worldwide edition of Risen is now out in all formats – the paperback edition was released yesterday, on Thursday.  Everyone outside North American can now buy Risen in ebook, paper, and audio versions.

Which just leaves the North American edition!  It’ll be coming out next week, on Tuesday December 7th – hopefully there aren’t any mixups with the release dates this time.

In other news, the German translation of the Alex Verus series continues to do very well – the German edition of Alex Verus #7, Burned, debuted this week at #11 on the Spiegel bestseller list.  Books #8 through #12 will continue to release at six-month intervals in their German translations over the next few years until the full series has been translated.

And once again, I’ll be doing an AMA a week after the US release, on December 14th.

    All great news! I’m so excited for the AMA.

  2. Gudrun says:

    Awesome book! I just finished it. I laughed, I cried, I felt excited. Thank you for creating such an amazing series.
    And I’m also looking forward to the next German translations.

  3. Ally says:

    I’ve just finished Risen, it is a fantastic story to close such an imaginative and rewarding series. Thank you so much for creating Alex, Luna and the whole Verus-world and sharing it all with us. I am very much looking forward to whatever you write next.

    Just finished the UK version, it didn’t disappoint. Loved the epilogue. Look forward to AMA.

    Here is a recent review posted on YouTube.

    Counting down to Dec 7th!

  6. Jim Sackman says:

    Yep – my son is out of town for training so I should have lots of peace and quiet to listen!

    Just hopeful we get an answer to two question that is could be left open. Where did Richard go and why?

  7. David says:

    +1 Jim Sackman’s comment. In your author commentary for “Hidden” you mention that you did not know Richard’s goals or plans for a long time, so I suspect his interplanar travels were a device to remove him from the scene until the plot required his presence. Nonetheless, within the story it is strongly implied that those travels were part of his overarching plot and thus sets up an expectation that they will eventually be explained. If you don’t address it in “Risen”, here’s hoping you do so through another channel. (Perhaps “Ask Luna”?)

  8. Celia says:

    David, Luna has no way to know where Richard went or what he did there. So she can’t answer that question. You could try asking Mr. Jacka at his AMA on reddit 12/14? Personally I doubt he will answer that question, but worth a try? 😉

  9. Luke the Large says:

    Ditto The above comments. For some reason the questions of what Richard did in that other world, how he knew what to expect when he got there (if he did), and how he got back without another Catherine to sacrifice, have loomed large in my mind every time I reread one of these books.
    It’s the seventh, but at least on audible, the book is not yet available. Can’t wait!

  10. Benedict says:

    David/Jim: There’ll be an explanation of the reasons for why I narrated Richard’s story the way I did when I do the Author Commentary for Risen, but advance warning – you probably won’t like it. 🙂

  11. Bob says:

    Finished the novel this evening. Loved it and loved how all the loose ends were resolved! Hope you will find time to write in this
    world again using other characters. Let Alex RIP.
