Soul Embrace Part III: Hollows of the Damned is the upcoming third entry in the Soul Embrace series. It is targeted for an early 2018 release, though this window is subject to change. Once it and Part IV have been released, they will eventually be collected into a paperback novel titled Soul Embrace Volume II: Armageddon.
Shinkokira may be gone, but the denizens of Hell have no intention of backing down yet, initiating the next phase of their terrible plot. Trapped within a vast forest upon a mountain haunted by the damned, those that bravely fought against Shinkokira now fight for their very survival in a desperate bid to escape. All this and his newfound responsibility as the so-called Shield of the World weighs on Nobuyuki, and with the death of his close friend and the Evil One’s designs coming to a head, he begins to fear everything.
Hollows of the Damned takes place one month after the ending of The Evils of Shinkokira.

All four initial entries of the Soul Embrace series were originally planned to be one full novel, but as the project got older, this single work was segmented into two volumes, and then again into four parts when the first volume proved too long for an Amazon eBook.
