A recent blog post on Tamora Pierce's prive livejournal seems to reveal the title of the next book in the Circle Universe. In the blog entry titled "Catching Up" Tamora Pierce mentions that she will be working on "Battle Magic". This title would fit the topic of the next book, which is to be set during a war in Yanjing and featuring Briar Moss, Evvy and Rosethorn. So "Battle Magic" seems to be at least the working title of the next book.
I think the title would fit the book (from what we know so far) very well and it would also fit into the scheme that Tamora Pierce's books often tend to have two-word titles or one-word titles recently we've had only two exceptions to this rule (The Will of the Empress and Tortall and Other Lands: A Collectio…Read more >
I've been busy with my studies, so unfortunately I haven't been as frequent with giving updates as news as I used to. Unfortunately I can't promise that it gets better. But I can assure you that I'm still here, looking after things and trying to fit in as much time as I can for the wiki.

Thanks to Denizine the wiki has a new skin. It's more colorful than our old design and has a lovely background image with pictures of different covers of Tamora Pierce's books. If you come across anything that still needs to be tweaked, just let me or Denizine know and we'll see what we can do about it.
By the way: a watchful editor has informed me that Mastiff is now set to be released in November 2011. This is a more definite release date than the ones known before, so I hope we'll have the book in hands by the end of next year.Read more >
