This is something of a first for the current series of books: a sneak preview of the next episode!
This excerpt from The Ravening Deep is one of the first scenes in the book in which we really get inside Euryce Eilentes' point of view, and it broaches the subject of Throam's abandonment during the Battle of Meccrace Prime in List of the Dead.
It also brings into focus some elements of the story which by this point in the text have only been referenced casually: the footage of dreadships broadcast by the crew of the Leo Fortune, and the devastating phenomenon now referred to as The Falling.
And of course... what Armada Wars novel would be complete without the obligatory gym scene?

The current story — The Great War of the Shaeld — will be more than halfway done with the release of The Ravening Deep this November. Since there are going to be companion episodes for books three and four, in the form of novellas, this infographic aims to remove any confusion from the release schedule.
Any "children" beneath a main title will be released after that main title.

The update tweaks the front and back matter, and adds an excerpt from the second volume, List of the Dead.
The second novella to expand the events of The Ravening Deep has now been confirmed for a May 2016 release data, and it's already been added to Goodreads.
Previously announced on what is now my author's blog, the first novella — I Dream of Damastion — is a first person perspective story set aboard an Imperial starship. It will follow an entirely new character as they become embroiled in the galaxy-spanning events of The Ravening Deep.
The second novella, titled The Granite Whistle, will follow another new character's brush with destiny, this time on an Imperial colony world we have not yet visited.
The novellas will be companion episodes which expand the story so far without taking the main narrative off on a tangent.
