I have too many fans of this series to leave it hanging for long. I also have far too many ideas to make this series my only focus. To balance it out, I am working on new projects but also planning out what else is to come in this. If you follow my blog or my Facebook page, you'll know that I have something special planned with this series.
However, I don't plan to start writing the next Revelations novel, Nemesis, until sometime in 2014. That means it won't be available until 2015.
And that leads me to a point I want to address about extending the series. I need to keep it fresh for me to continue to enjoy writing in the series. While I loved Elis and Raea as much as anyone, they needed a break. In Forever Dark, we left them at a nexus point between the two current parts of the series. You'll notice that in the same time period that Forever Dark takes place, so too do Soriel, Deception, Shards, and part of Phantoms. These books feature other characters, new and returning. This part of the series, Revelations, is an expansion from the Dark Angel Chronicles. You may find other characters to love as much, and maybe even more, but the stakes are getting higher and the stories darker, which is why I am writing as M. A. Nilles. I would like to revisit Elis and Raea in a future book, but they are no longer alone in the battle to save the Starfire.
