Unbinding synopsis

After questing through the sidhe realms with her ex-hellhound lover, Nathan, Kai Tallman Michalski has finally returned home. But she knows Nathan will eventually be called back to serve his queen—and Kai will have to decide whether to enter her majesty’s service as well. Sure, the job comes with great bennies, but there’s one big downside: she would have to swear absolute fealty to the Queen of Winter.

For now, though, Kai is glad to be home and glad that Nathan completed his mission for his queen with surprising ease. But what seemed to be a quick conclusion turns out to be anything but. The two of them helped thwart the sidhe god of chaos—and he is not happy about that. He’s got plans for them. Plans, too, for the sidhe who killed him some three millennia ago. Nor has he abandoned his plans for Earth, as they learn when chaos begins bursting out all over...

Quiz

1. Unbinding features two characters who have appeared in “Inhuman”, NIGHT SEASON, and at the end of RITUAL MAGIC. Those characters are:
(a) Cynna & Cullen
Good guess, but no.
(b) Clara & Dr. Who
You are a person of great taste and discriminating viewing habits. However, you are wrong.
(c) Kai & Nathan
Bingo! And if you’re one of the approximately 7,139 people who have asked if I was ever going to write more about Kai Tallman Michalski and Nathan Hunter, you’re pretty happy right now.
(d) Starsky & Hutch
You’ve been asleep for the last thirty-five years, haven’t you?
2. Lily and Rule don't appear in Unbinding because:
(a) The book is set in Iath, the home realm of the two Queens of Faerie.
Nope. Although Iath is, indeed, the Queens’ home realm, Unbinding is set on Earth . . . except for the prologue, which I really hope you’ll read even if you usually skim them. It has information you’re gonna need.
(b) Lily and Rule are in France on their honeymoon.
Very good! Lily and Rule do have a small part to play, but only as half of a long-distance phone call. Although they want to jet home when things heat up, between them, Isen, Ruben, and Nathan are able persuade them this would be a terrible idea.
(c) A chaos mote explodes near them and freezes time.
Excellent guess, because those pesky chaos motes—residue from the destruction of Nam Anthassa—do cause all sorts of problems. Not for Rule & Lily, however. See answer (B).
(d) Starsky & Hutch
You’re not trying at all, are you?
3. In Unbinding, Kai and Nathan have to deal with a god who is not at all happy with them.
(a) The Great Bitch
I’m delighted that you read the books, but this is not the right answer.
(b) Itzpapalotl, Aztec goddess of war and childbirth
No, but you get bonus points if you can pronounce Itzpapalotl.
(c) Dyffaya áv Eni, the sidhe god of chaos
Yep. Did you notice that, at the end of RITUAL MAGIC, the dagger was destroyed but the god of chaos wasn’t? Did you wonder about that? Of course, it’s really hard to kill a god—and besides, that’s been tried already with Dyffaya, with what we might call inconclusive results.
(d) Starsky & Hutch
WAKE UP! For God’s sake, WAKE UP!
BONUS: What happens in the exciting climax of Unbinding?
Click here to see if you guessed it
C’mon. You didn’t think I’d tell you, did you? To find out how Kai and Nathan stop a half-dead god from spreading chaos over the entire realm—and deal with the millennial-long vengeance he’s planned–you’ll have to get the book. Unbinding, out August, 2014. (Though you can be pretty sure Starsky & Hutch do not appear in any aspect of the story whatsoever . . . )
