The Godbornhas an official release date at last — October 1, 2013. Huzzah! It also has an Amazon listing, which you can see here (I’m sure the listing for the Kindle format will be up soon). Double huzzah! I’m excited about this and hope you are, too.
It looks like many of you have pre-ordered already and for that, much gratitude. As you can see from the listing, The Godborn is Book II of the Sundering. It is, however, a standalone book. That said, I think all Realms fans should read all of the Sundering novels (the books have some cross-connections and, taken in total, show the effects of the Sundering on the Forgotten Realms). The Sundering series launches in September with The Companions, by R.A. Salvatore.
