The 2nd "trilogy" of House War turns out to be incomplete. I'm now about 10 hours from end of Oracle and very little has happened in the book. Although there's no indication of another novel, I starting researching to see what I could learn from various sources and a Wiki reference indicates this "last" book was split into 2 novels... the 2nd of which could be called "War" - no hint of when it will be released. Given where book 5 ended and the fact that this book is nearly 30 hours, couldn't see how there would be more than this "final" 6th novel in a 6 book series. I can't find any reference on the authors website about another book.
An additional book is accomplished by spending the start of Oracle with 6+ hours following the most minor of characters (Jester). Additional hours focus on other minor characters doing exciting stuff like having hours long discussions of hugely entertaining things like merchant corruption or alliances. The main character, Jewel, has been relegated to an occasional passage. It feels like non-events are getting strung out longer into narratives just for the sake of pushing a possible conclusion into another book. I say "possible" conclusion because at this rate, who knows if a book 7 would complete the series.
