TJ Marquis Announces How Black the Sky Sequel

TJ Marquis Announces How Black the Sky Sequel

The next installment of Hero's Metal, a heavy metal pulp adventure, is slated for release in December 2021!

TJ Marquis confirmed on Twitter today, Nov. 29th, 2021, that Out of the Deep, the sequel to his heavy metal novel How Black the Sky, will be released this December.

The first novel, which we found “full of hardcore action, valiant warriors, and thought-provoking themes,” follows a band of warriors through epic battles defending against an invasion of Underworld monsters. The sequel promises to continue the driving action, with another “hollow earth threat predicted by their old rival, the Underlord Kash.”

A demibus of the two Hero’s Metal novels is also planned for release in December 2021.

Check out our positive, long-form review of the first Hero's Metal novel!

The author of Light Unto Another World reveals his new project for 2022

Yakov Merkin, author of the light novel series Light Unto Another World, which recently rose to rank #55 in the Amazon Light Novels category, announced on Monday, Nov. 29th that he will soon have something new for readers in 2022. 

The project, Amaranth Angels, will be a manga starring “cute anime girls doing military-esque things” in the vein of such animes as Girls Und Panzer, but in an adventure setting.

Concept art for the new series includes both the girls and their ship.

“You like cute anime girls? You like pulse-pounding starfighter combat? Expect a ton of both, along with just general fun, with a relatively large cast of characters.”

The artwork will be done by Philip San Gaspar, who continues to work with Merkin on the Light Unto Another World series. The light novel is on track, Merkin assures fans, with the fourth installment releasing tomorrow, Nov. 30th, 2021.

Amaranth Angels will have a Kickstarter campaign, estimated as early as Spring of 2022.
