I've just started writing Into the Forge, the working title for my next Mercerian Tale. It concerns the exploits of Herdwin Steelarm and Kasri Ironheart, two characters taken from the pages of the Heir to the Crown series.
This time they're not marching to war. Instead, they're going on a more personal journey to the place of Herdwin's birth—the Dwarven stronghold of Stonecastle. It seems the past has finally caught up with the master smith of Wincaster, and now he must deal with the repercussions.
Ah, well. At least this time he has Kasri along to help him out.
