About The End of Time.
The final installment in the Books of Umber series begins a few weeks after Dragon Games ends, with big trouble in Kurahaven. Lord Umber has fallen into another dark melancholy. The sorceress is stirring in her chamber. Umber's enemy is poised to take the throne. And a threat this world has never seen before is rapidly approaching. A stirring and action-packed conclusion to the series.

The German covers are amazing.
Here's what the German translations look like. Fans of Nima, Boroon and the Silkship will really enjoy these illustrations by wonderful German artist Helge Vogt. See them larger here (scroll to the bottom). They look even better when bigger!
Another big honor for Happenstance Found.
The first book in the Books of Umber series has been named among the "Best Children's Books of the Year 2010" by The Bank Street Children's Book Committee. From the site: The Children's Book Committee was founded almost 100 years ago to help parents, teachers and librarians choose the books that children will find captivating and transforming. The Committee reviews over 6000 titles each year for accuracy and literary quality and considers their emotional impact on children.
Who are "Casualidad" and "Tesadüf"?
