Read the First Chapter of The Ambassador’s Mission

It’s up! Go here to read it. Normally I have to carefully format the text and add html code, but this time the lovely bods at Orbit have done it all for me – and it’s up a month earlier.

For the full story, I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait until the release in May. Only two months away. Wheeee!

Oh, I had so much fun writing this first chapter!

  1. Oh I love-love-LOVE it! Can’t wait ’till May… Damn… 🙂

  2. I would just like to say, I have read the first chapter of ambassador’s mission, and it was incredible. I found myself slipping straight back into the story and feeling at home with the characters.
    The only downside is that I now have to wait for 2 months for the rest of the book!

  3. Cheers Trudi. Having trouble waiting for the book as it is. One chapter and im hooked, and i cant read any more for 2 months. Curse you and your generosity lol

  4. No… I won’t read it now. I would die waiting for rest of it for two months. Last time when I finished reading one of Your books – “Last of the Wilds”, and I realised that “Voice of the Gods” would be available in Polish version in six months I decided to read it in English. I also won’t wait for Polish edition of “Ambassador’s mission”.
    Cheers from Poland. I’m looking forward to reading more of Your stories.

  5. Brilliant! I read a bit of it, but i have to do homework. Lol. Definetly read the next bit.
    Btw i’ve noticed your writing has gotten alot more…um, ryhtim-ish? Wich is brilliant. It did’nt lack rythim, it’s just better nowXD

  6. Argh! I have managed to resist re-reading [again] the The Magician’s Apprentice for a while, and saw this link yesterday and read the first chapter – fully forgetting just how addictive your work is!
    Now I’m just itching for my fix, hehe. Hope everything is good on your end, Missus Awesome.
    Thoroughly looking forward to May!

  7. Hi,
    it’s hard to wait till May. But the guys at created a video for the german edition of TAM. Watch it here
    I like its acrcane atmosphere 🙂

  8. Wow! OMG! What an amazing first chapter! Well done! Oh I can’t wait until it comes out! Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. If my house wasn’t full of sleeping people right now, I’m pretty sure I would have squealed with excitement several times through that. Now you have me biting my nails until the book comes out.. I’ll be on edge for weeks!! I’m so glad to have my favourite characters back…

  10. You spoil us Trudi 🙂
    But now i am even more eager to get it! I know for sure i will be outside waterstones at 9am on the day there waiting for it to open so i can rush in and get it asap. 2 months to go yet though, and it’s going slowly! 🙁
    I must say though, your writing has improved yet again! You can really feel the atmosphere and edginess of the situation from that first chapter. A rather interesting choice of a starting chapter 🙂

  11. Oooooh! Great, thanks for posting the link. *SO* looking forward to May!
