C. S. Friedman rarely gets out to the West Coast on tour.
So when I found out she would be leaving her Washington DC home to stop in Seattle, WA for the release of her new book, Legacy of Kings, I had to meet her. I was not disappointed. She visited the University Bookstore, where we talked behind-the-scenes about touring, her new book, what she has planned for the future, and a number of other topics. It was a fun half an hour.
Then it was showtime. She stepped before her audience, read an excerpt from her forthcoming Coldfire novella Dominion—featuring her greatest character Gerald Tarrant—and then answered questions from her fans!
And I caught it all on video.
First though, here is a bit more about her new novel, Legacy of Kings:
The young peasant woman Kamala has proven strong and determined enough to claim the most powerful Magister sorcery for herself-but now the Magisters hunt her for killing one of their own.
Her only hope of survival lies in the northern Protectorates, where spells are warped by a curse called the Wrath that even the Magisters fear. Originally intended to protect the lands of men from creatures known only as souleaters, the Wrath appears to be weakening-and the threat of this ancient enemy is once more falling across the land.
