Oath Bound

Oath Bound is now officially finished! From here on out it's editing and process. And I should have the cover art to post very soon.

The fifth Order of the Air book, Oath Bound takes place in December 1935 and January 1936, about six months after Wind Raker. Jerry is on the dig of a lifetime in Egypt, searching for the Pylon of Isis in Alexandria, which he hopes is the key to finding the lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Meanwhile, Alma, Mitch and Lewis are showing the Catalina flying boat at an airshow in Italy. When Iskinder arrives in Alexandria with a terrible secret, hunted across the continent by agents of the Italian government, everything changes.

There are some firsts in this book. Melissa has written a gorgeous dogfight scene with Lewis and Mitch. I've been waiting five books to see Lewis in his element. This is the first dogfight in the series, but by no means the last.

Another first is this is the first time we've seen Stasi do what she does best, and she truly is a most excellent jewel thief!

And Alexandria. Back to Alexandria. I adored writing the hunt for the Soma and a tiny flashback cameo for Demetria from Hand of Isis!

I hope you love Oath Bound as much as I do!

So, not off North Carolina, but I thought you might be interested anyway:
