Hello wonderful readers!

 

Thank you so much, Sarah, for your awesome posts about all the new tribes!  Oh my goodness, seeing the LeafWings in color makes me so incredibly happy – even seeing the very first sketches for the three new tribes made me feel like Joy just poured sunshine into my head.  She took my vague ideas and transformed them into the most glorious shiny new things! They’re all so spectacular . . . do you guys have a favorite tribe yet?

 

Perhaps it would help to know a little more about the LeafWings, although of course now I have to figure out what to say without giving too much away!    If any of you have seen or heard the prologue for Book Eleven, you might know that the LeafWings were the predominant tribe on Pantala when Clearsight arrived there, two thousand years ago.

 

But by the beginning of chapter one, when we meet Blue the SilkWing, the Tree Wars have happened, the Pantalan forests have been cleared, and the LeafWings are all . . . gone.

 

(Or ARE they?)

 

(“Of course they are!” says Blue.)  

 

(SKEPTICAL FACE, say all you thoughtful, intelligent readers!)

 

(“No, no, no,” says Luna (Blue’s sister).  “The LeafWings are completely gone, you guys, everyone says so!”)

 

Except . . . if they’re really all gone, why are there posters all over the Hives warning everyone about how dangerous LeafWings are?  What about the rumors that they might still be out there somewhere, plotting their revenge or a new start to the war? Could even Queen Wasp destroy an entire tribe?

 

I GUESS WE’LL FIND OUT.  (Very soon!)  (No spoilers here face!)

 

It’s so interesting that a couple of you asked about the GrassWings in the last week or two.  A while ago, someone asked me if I’d invented any other tribes that didn’t get included in the kingdoms of Pyrrhia, and my answer was the GrassWings—because the Pyrrhian tribes are mostly inspired by their habitats, and the one habitat I considered but didn’t really include was a savanna/plains environment.  I tinkered with some ideas for this tribe, although if I’d kept going, I’m not sure GrassWings would have been the ultimate name—that’s just where I started. But in the end, I decided to stick with seven tribes, and the GrassWings were the least developed in my head, so out the window they went. 

 

Then when I started thinking about new tribes for Pantala, I reeled the GrassWings back in and thought about them some more.  I still liked the idea of the savanna habitat—and you’ll see that in the area around the Hives.

 

But in the research phase, I watched an amazing documentary called Africa, in which the narrator mentioned that a big part of the current savanna (in the Great Rift Valley) used to be a primordial forest, stretching for miles and miles.  And that really grabbed my brain—a grassland that used to be a forest. Where did all the trees go? What happened to them? What if there was a tribe that lived in those trees and called them home?

 

So the GrassWings kind of morphed into the LeafWings instead . . . with the added bonus that I can name them all after trees!  (I mean, IF WE EVER MEET ANY, which of course we won’t, because they’re so totally extinct.) 

 

All right, that noise you hear is probably my editor’s brain exploding, so I’ll make myself stop—but in just ONE MORE WEEK you’ll be able to read the book and find out everything for yourself!  Yay! (OK, not everything . . . I had to save some secrets for the next four books!) 

 

I adore you all!  Thank you for being excited about the new tribes—I’m sending millions of confetti cannons of love at Joy for making them so beautiful, and at you for being so awesome.

 

Oh, and don’t forget, one more week until the launch party in Washington, DC . . . hopefully see some of you there!  Yay!

Tui

Quick question: A bunch of people are wondering if LeafWings change to brown in the autumn or when they get old, sort of like actual leaves when they expire. Is this true, or is it just a bunch of FanWing fluff?

or maybe it is a useless mystery, arcane and lonely, unfound because no one ever looked for it 

-m.s.

Tui, your books are some of my favorites, far better than some "modern classics". The fact that you make these worlds full of DRAGONS. And then you keep adding to them, its just awesome.

 

The main thing I would like to say is that the audio book versions of your books have been extremely helpful. I pray that book 11 will come out along with the audiobook on the 26th.

I wanted to give a suggestion, why not add an undiscovered Tribe in Pantala, maybe WebWings, BloodWings, RockWings or LightningWings.

My library got the book and i read it like zoosh

 

Also, quick question, how big is Pantala compared to Pyhrria? My theory is that its around half the size, because A - only 3 tribes copared to 7, and B - The hives pretty much take over all landmass, so they have to be pretty close.

 

And, the new designs are EPIC! Just think of the OCs....
