We know you’ve been awaiting this news, and it gives us great pleasure to announce The Rebirths of Tao will be released in January 2015. The final instalment in the Lives of Tao trilogy, this stunning conclusion will be available in ebook and the UK on 30 December 2014 and in the UK / ROW on 1 January 2015. The deal, for worldwide English rights was negotiated between Lee Harris and Chu’s agent, Russell Galen of Scovil Galen Ghosh.

The Author - Wesley ChuWesley Chu: “I am thrilled to continue the Tao series with Angry Robot Books. Together, over the past two years, the ill-tempered droids and I have  gloriously kicked the crap out of Roen and Tao, and laid waste to those human-loving Prophus. Now, it’s death, taxes, and the Genjix. People of Earth, prepare for the final battle. You’re about to get rocked.”

Lee Harris: “Roen and Tao’s story became a firm favourite as soon as we published book 1, The Lives of Tao. Book 2 confirmed Wesley’s talent, and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the conclusion!”

The Rebirths of Tao

Five years have passed since the events in The Deaths of Tao. The world is split into pro-Prophus and pro-Genjix factions, and is poised on the edge of a devastating new World War. A Genjix scientist who defects to the other side holds the key to preventing bloodshed on an almost unimaginable scale.

With the might of the Genjix in active pursuit, Roen is the only person who can help him save the world, and the Quasing race, too.

And you thought you were having a stressful day…

  1. Man, I cant wait! The last book i enjoyed as much as the Tao Series was, honestly, The Way of Kings – and Stormlight Archive is probably the Epic Fantasy of a decade.

    So for everyone who didnt pick them up – READ READ READ.

  2. I just finished both Lives & Deaths, and hopped online to look up the author… and saw the news about Rebirths! Fantastic! Now I’m anxiously waiting to see what all has changed in the five years since. These books have been great fun. Thank you.

  3. Sweet!

    Ohhh, and I am /so behind/ I have got to read Deaths yet. :/ But I will. (I can’t die, too many books to read.)

    Had such a blast working on Lives, Wes.


  4. Awesome news!!

  5. Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it…although 2015 is sooooooooooo far away in my reading lives! lol
