Goodreads asked Hugo Negron:

What are you currently working on?

Hugo Negron Forging of a Knight, Prison Planet of the Mah-Lahkt, is nearly ready and should be available within a few months. The official blurb:

They have been hinted at – heroes of glorious legend, villains of infamous fable – some have made their presence known, while others only by name: Aurelus, Amali, Termenon, Qualtan, Jesepha, Darksiege, and Shaz.

Now, heroes of the past and present will unite against Those That Stand in Shadow. From the steaming jungles of the Third Continent to a Prison Planet forged by angels, the Arch-Mages and their champions will find themselves in a race against time to prevent Shaz and his agents from finding the Dark Ones’ demonic fathers and releasing them from bondage. Enemies will become allies, and allies will become foes in the ultimate confrontation with evil that will span two continents, new lands, and new terrors!

Some continuing and new sub-plots as well as old characters show up in this book, the third in the series, laying the groundwork for what will be coming up in the next couple of books - you see, an ongoing concern for Qualtan has been this fear (curse?) that he will lose all that he has worked up to - his knighthood, his enchanted sword Goldenflame, his honor, and his friends. He has received various answers to this problem but nothing fully concrete. The re-introduction of a specific character from book two in the series will help bring clarity to this problem and whether truth or fiction, will find resolution by book five in the series, if he makes it that far...
