The invasion continues…

Continue the action-packed journey across a planet at war in the sequel to Shadow and the next book in the ever expanding Warpmancer Universe.

Thief turned soldier, James Terrin, leads a motley crew of survivors across a blood-stained wasteland. At their heels, a team of alien special forces track James for unknown reasons. All this while Don Marzio tries to rebuild his empire in the South.

Nicholas Woode-Smith (zaggeta) | 69 comments Dammit. I made a mistake. Sorry about this. It's actually Book 2 in Warpmancer. I need to update all the ordering sometime.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Nicholas,
please do not make changes to the correct titles.

Could you please explain series numbering so we can fix it for you?

This book is currently #2
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...


message 6: by Nicholas (new)

Nicholas Woode-Smith (zaggeta) | 69 comments The correct series numbering for Warpmancer is:

1: Shadow
2: Trooper
3: Captain
4: Godkiler
5: Outcast of Empire
6: Daughter of Mars (TBA)
7: Rise (TBA)
8: Defiant (TBA)

Fall of Zona Nox and Rise of the Defiant should be Warpmancer Box-sets 1 and 2, respectively.

Thank you.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Thank you.
I combined 'Shadow' with 'Fall of Zona Nox: Part One' and 'Trooper' with 'Fall of Zona Nox: Part 2', so you might want to change default cover editions on those:
https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...

Could you please clarify, which books are in both of the box sets?
Also, how the novellas fit in the new numbering?


message 8: by Nicholas (new)

Nicholas Woode-Smith (zaggeta) | 69 comments Thank you.

Captain (Warpmancer 3) is immediately followed by Rise (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CST2QB7) and then Defiant (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CST8PDH).

Despite having different cover styles, Godkiller and Outcast of Empire are being merged into the main series. Godkiller as book 6 and Outcast of Empire as book 7.

I'm leaving them as unnumbered for now.


message 10: by Nicholas (new)

Nicholas Woode-Smith (zaggeta) | 69 comments Shadow, Trooper and Captain are in the Fall of Zona Nox boxset.

Rise and Defiant are in the Rise of the Defiant boxset.

If I have to list them as novellas (sad face) and use the conventions (sad face), then:

Godkiller would be 5.1
Outcast of Empire would be 5.2

If I may, they may be short but they have the role as full sequels, so if it is allowed, I'd like them to be listed as:

Godkiller (Warpmancer #6)
Outcast of Empire (Warpmancer #7)


message 11: by Nicholas (new)

Nicholas Woode-Smith (zaggeta) | 69 comments Oh, and if you meant the short stories:

Gangs of Galis 0.5
Shipborn 3.5
Hive Mind 4.5


message 12: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Nicholas,
again, we ask you to not do any changes on existing editions.
The title should stay as it is printed on the cover for a specific edition and changing it is against GR policy.

I couldn't find 'Outcast...' in your books, but searching by ASIN from Amazon I'm assuming this is the same book retitled:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
New editions with the current title need to be added. Could you provide a date for new cover editions?

Previously you had a 'Godkiller' listed as 'Devil Child Book 2'.
Also in the description:
'Godkiller can be read in any order of the series, but is best read after Outcast of Empire.'


message 13: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments I think we are almost there.

Am I correct thinking that this book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
contains following books:
Gangs of Galis
Shipborn
Hive Mind
Outcast of Empire?

Thanks


message 14: by Nicholas (new)

Nicholas Woode-Smith (zaggeta) | 69 comments Yes. Sorry, forgot about that boxset. Thanks.

That's the incorrect description for Godkiller. The right one is located on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079FDL7KQ

Both Godkiller and Outcast of Empire were a part of their own series, but the series has now been merged.

I haven't changed titles. Only series listings, which aren't pictured on the covers except for Fall of Zona Nox (pending editing). I may have changed subtitles. Apologies if that is against the rules.

The new cover edition of Outcast of Empire was released on the 12th of July 2017. It contains some additional text.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments The order of the series is for you to decide.
I'm just letting you know about these inconsistencies that may confuse some readers.
You might also like to know that this is how they are listed on Amazon as well https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...

In my opinion both Godkiller (131 pages) and Outcast of Empire (191 pages) are long enough to have integer numbering, but please keep in mind that if someone higher-up will decide differently they might be renumbered.

This is the updated series page:
https://www.goodreads.com/series/2093...

Nicholas Woode-Smith (zaggeta) | 69 comments Working with Amazon to fix the series listing there. They are much less efficient than you guys.

Thank you for all the help! Sorry for the trouble that I may have caused.
