This is exactly what it says on the tin. Isobelle's sent us an excerpt from The Sending, to share with all of you wonderful Obernet members who have stuck out the wait.

[hr][/hr]Update: I've extended this excerpt, to match the one listed on Penguin's website. Read the whole thing here! A nibble from The Sending to whet the appetite.... Part of this excerpt has been kicking around in the Road to the Sending Whose Line Competition for about a month - and now, we can share the entire excerpt for your reading pleasure! To read the excerpt in full, make sure you're logged in, then follow the link: A nibble from The Sending to whet the appetite...to Obernet, from Isobelle. For those of you not logged in, here's an...er...excerpt of the excerpt :P
...I tried to wake but a forest clearing wove itself into a living cage about me, the breeze that fanned my cheeks pungent with the scent of pine needles.

Human-shaped but scaled like a fish or a lizard, its eyes were a queer cloudy white, its hair insubstantial as mist. ‘Guildmistress, help us.’ Read On...
"Thank you Isobelle" doesn't quite cover it, does it? :D Not long to go now! [act]points to counter on the right[/act]. If you missed the news, The Sending will be released on the 31st October 2011. [act]flails and squees all 'round[/act]
