by Isobelle Carmody
Expected Publication: Sometime in the future.. hopefully soon!

From Goodreads:

The post-apocalyptic fantasy series reaches its heartbreaking, world-shaking conclusion!

Award-winning Australian author Isobelle Carmody concludes the epic story of Elspeth Gordie, a heroine in the vein of Tamora Pierce's most memorable and empowering protagonists. The final chapter in the eight-book Obernewtyn Chronicles, The Red Queen is a YA fantasy novel decades in the making.

After years spent struggling to balance her desires with her responsibilities, Elspeth Gordie has fully embraced her role as the Seeker. Battle-scarred and lovelorn, haunted by memories of her beloved Rushton, Elspeth is not prepared for what she finds at the end of the black road she travels: the Compound, a lost community with a startling secret. As Elspeth strives against her captors, she learns that Rushton and her friends have fallen into the hands of the deadly slavemasters that rule the Red Land. And worst of all, as Elspeth stumbles, the Destroyer creeps ever closer to his goal: awakening the cataclysmically destructive weaponmachines that Elspeth has been charged with stopping. Has all her sacrifice been in vain?

Full of romance, action, and suspense, The Red Queen is a worthy finale to such a breathtakingly elaborate series.

The first book in this series was published in 1987, that's over 20 years ago and The Red Queen is where it finally draws to a close! Very exciting stuff! Unfortunately the release date keeps getting changed so unfortunately it may not come out until next year, but here's hoping! I will be really excited to finish this series, but sad to see it end too.
