    Now there's something I thought I'd never see. I'd stopped looking at his LJ even. Have to re-read the first books when it gets close.

    Christmas certainly came early this year. I did not think we would be getting this ever. An early 2019 start hopefully means before March. Will definitely start doing a bit of rereading to refresh myself as I haven't touched these since 2012.

    Well damn, that's been a while. Anyone re-read the first stories recently? Not sure how they will hold up, though I do recall the later stories smoothed out a bit. Been a while.

    And thanks for the reminder about the author's LJ - I haven't looked at it in years but I used to check it for his book reviews. Usually had some interesting insight into novels.

    Inverarity's said on their blog back in May that their beta's have all finished reviewing it and that they're still going over it but it's for certain going to start being released at the end of the summer. I already reread the series around March, so I might do a quick skim again before it's released.

    So now that it's closer to the date it's time for speculation. I'm guessing that Jezebel back in the prologue was
    a sacrifice for the Deathly Regiment and that Quimley was more sad about her passing then the General was, or that it was instead supposed to be Livia who was to be sacrificed and that's why he has such a grudge against Thorn

    I'm also keen on finding out who exactly Claudia's mother was, or was that said already?

    I think that she'll probably head to one of the smaller charms schools and like what some people on the reddit said, this will probably be the book with peak asshole Alexandra behaviour, or she might've been humbled by what happened. I wonder if she'll get an apprenticeship eventually? Out of her determination to fix her mother she might try an start learning from someone experienced.

    Also, I was hoping some Larry/Alexandra might come this book or the next. Probably not though because Alexandra is the reason why he lost some fingers/his hand pretty much. Alexandra being the shit that she is will probably blame him for messing up her plan because she's stubborn.

    So, I think Charmbridge will definitely be one of the schools taken down in this book, so we might see more of her friends after that happens. Besides that though this is the book where more Circle action should start to happen. I think Alexandra will probably be harassed more by agents and it'll certainly be darker then past books.

    Inverarity posted on July 7th that the theoretical last draft has been submitted to Betas. As it stands it's 59 chapters and around 1000 pages though that will fluctuate a bit after the edits. This is really happening.
