And so it begins…and ends

The final book of the Morpheus Road trilogy publishes tomorrow…March 27th. Yay! So the tour begins, and the saga of Marsh and Cooper concludes.

The first public stop on “The Blood” tour will be Wednesday March 28th at The Reading Bug in San Carlos, CA.


I’m going to be visiting a bunch of schools around San Francisco this week as well. Can’t wait!

Check the “appearance” page to see if I’ll be appearing anywhere near you. Not all of the events are listed yet so check back every so often. Also, I’ll try to record more videos on VYou during the tour:


Hope to see lots of you guys over the next few weeks!

  11. Carolyn says:

  12. Helena says:

    Weird I totally lost track of the day yesterday and totally didn’t notice yesterday was the 27th @_@. I called the book store nearby and the lady said sorry there is no book like that in :s. I am wondering if it’s just for america?

  13. The Doctor says:

    I went to Hastings yesterday and it…wasn’t…there…Grrrr……..

  14. Kayla Nicole Tenney says:


    This book is amazing! I hope you guys can get copies soon. 🙁

    P.S. D.J. Are you going going to come to Utah? I have some books for you to sign…

  15. The Doctor says:

    I completely agree with Kayla Nicole Tenney. DJ, I really hope you come to Utah some time.

    @ Helena

    I don’t know wether Morpheus Road is just in America or not, but you should be able to buy it on Amazon.

  16. Ashley says:

    I just finished reading The Blood. It’s SO amazing!!! I loved how you tied in pendragon; I had told myself that I was going to bed after the next chapter finished, but I read the part where his ID is given, and I thought, “I’m going to be tired tomorrow,” and I plunged back in. Thank you so much for writing it.

  17. BuggyReality says:

    Look you said before that there was someone posting under your name wellanyone could be doing that or you could be lying and are just being rude. I think the best way to figure this out is if you set up a gravatar for your email address so that even if someone posts under your name they wont have your avatar and if it is rlly u being rude, we would know because of the gravatar.

    BTW The blood is going so well! I’m 38% in.

  18. The Doctor says:

    That sounds like a good idea. How do you get a gravatar?

    p.s. Does this site have moderators?

  19. Patrick G. says:

    *Reaches the end of Chapter 18*




  20. Patrick G. says:

    *Reaches the end of Chapter 26*


    I am such a fanboy XD

  21. Tribbun and Ribbon says:

    I want the blood so badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Patrick G. says:

    Dark-Skinned girl at the end=Loor?
    Press=Press? Solara=Solara? XD

    In the context of Morpheus Road, where is Saint Dane if he was a rogue Traveler, if he even exists at all?

    If Press has been trapped in the Blood for thousands of years, how does he know modern English?

    If he is Uncle Press, how was he in the Light with Bobby if he was supposed to be in the Blood?

    Are there multiple Lights (multiple territories)?

    Am I assuming to much? XD

    Please, DJ, shine some Light (ba dum crash) on these multiple topics!

  23. Rand E. says:

    I just got done reading The Blood (Can I get a three cheers for Mr. D.J. MacHale for yet again writing a brilliant series?) and I can’t help wondering what’s next on MacHale’s writing agenda.
    And for Patrick G.’s comment above, I think Dark skinned (woman) is Osa and time isn’t relevant concerning the places in Morpheus Road and Pendragon. It clearly says that the struggle with Saint Dane (who’s spirit doesn’t exist anymore thanks to Pendragona and Travelers) happened BEFORE the events in Morpheus Road.

  24. BuggyReality says:

    Doctor, go to gravatar.com and sign up for it with the email you use on this site.

  25. Mo says:

    Love your books i cant wait to read the blood
    and docter idk wtf is your problem but if you dont got anything good to say then dont say shit

  26. Mark says:

    there should be a morpheus road movie…and DJ MacHale should make it so it doesnt change as much as other adaptions have..*cough The lightning thief *cough

  27. Tribbun and Ribbon says:

    @ the doctor
    Well that seems highly unnecessary

  28. Dodger says:

    @Rand E.

    Agreed! Just finished The Blood, and it was simply amazing! Definitely my favorite of the three! So many surprises and shocks. When I found out who it was that was going to help Marsh and Cooper…that was just plain awesome.

    Can’t wait to see what’s coming next! 🙂

  29. Tribbun and Ribbon says:

    @Anyone who has finished the blood

    At the end did it seem like there would be another book or did it seem like the series was over???

    Sorry, I don’t have my picture because i’m using a different computer. 😛

  30. Tribbun and Ribbon says:

    Oh wait nevermind! it’s right there!

  31. veelox0 says:

    Just finished the blood!!! It was so good and I loved SPOILER ALERT the connections with pendragon like solara and uncle press 🙂

  32. Dodger says:


    Agreed! And when Press was explaining how they had previously battled a force much worse than Damon. It was cool seeing Saint Dane referenced too 🙂

  33. D.J. MacHale says:

    Be sure to mark spoilers really well please!

  34. The Doctor says:

    Yes! I found out how to get a gravatar. I would also like to apologize to anyone who may have been insulted under this name. As you know, this site doesn’t have accounts and passwords and such, so anyone can type in any name they want to post under. Well, someone decided it would be great fun to post completely rude and unnecessary comments under my name. I was so frustrated, I almost decided to leave the site. So again, I’m sorry for those rude posts and hopefully it won’t happen again.

  35. veelox0 says:



    It made me think that all the watchers were travelers because the watcher that told them where to find press seemed a whole lot like Osa (loor’s mom) … I was so wishing for Bobby to come out but I was a little disappointed 🙁


  36. Dodger says:



    Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking. Especially when Press told Coop and Marsh how they’d once battled a force stronger than Damon (Saint Dane). Especially when you think what happened at the end of Soldiers of Halla. All the Travelers were about to return to Solara to help guide mankind…so since their jobs as Travelers are finished, they’re now acting as guiding spirits again. Now they’re Watchers.

    And I think it was Osa who was with Press. He also told Coop and Marsh the wooden stave was a present from a spirit who means a lot to him. Seems like that would be Osa.

    It was funny, because at first, when the Watcher was first introduced, and he was talking to Marsh and Coop, I was thinking it was Bobby, since he had a basketball and he was so skilled with it. But as soon as it said “uncle”…I was starting to have an idea of who it might be 🙂

  37. BuggyReality says:

    My heart stopped at every Pendragon tie in.

  38. veelox0 says:



    I was just like ooooh foreshadowing and literally screamed with joy when it said his name was press 🙂

    I don’t care what everyone else says but I’m proud to be a pendragon nerd (or traveler as I like to call myself) 😉

  39. The Doctor says:


    If you haven’t read the Pendragon series yet, you really should. They are EPIC.

  40. IWannaMarryMarsh888 says:

    @The Doctor yeah if you don’t read Pendragon, The Blood isn’t half as funny.

  41. Thetruewatcher says:

    i just finished reading the blood (had to get it at my school library, i was actually the one who kept telling my librarian it would be coming out soon) i loved all of the pendragon referances! dj, you are a master wordsmith, i cant wait too see what you have planned next! i will gladly travel through halla until the end of the morpheus road following you as if you were bobby himself, hobby ho!

  42. Boon888 says:

    Wait, I havent read any morpheus road books, only pendragon, but please tell me about these pendragon references. I dont need any explaining if something is confusing, though.

  43. Black Water says:

    Ihavn’t gotten the blood yet… driving me cra-zy!!!

  44. Andrew Karl says:
