Vampire Academy Mastermind, Richelle Mead, has signed with Razorbill (VA’s publisher) for seven more young adult books. One of those books will be a continuation of Rose’s story. The other six will be a brand new series, possibly with characters from the VA world–but that has yet to be determined. This means the current VA series about Rose will now have six books instead of five.
Richelle states, “I’ve always had her story planned out in advance, and having it one book longer isn’t going to change what happens to her. It just means I can go into more detail on certain things, which should be a lot of fun. I hope everyone likes it! It’s pretty exciting.”
This was particularly excellent news for me because Vampire Academy has become my all time favorite Vampire Romance series this year, knocking out the Twilight Saga (now #2) and The House of Night Series (#3) which were competing for top slot in my Top 5 most anticipated series book releases this year. The other two on my meticulously narrowed list are Vampire Kisses (#4) and Evernight (#5). Interestingly all of these fall in the Young Adult fantasy fiction realm so perhaps I will add another list for Top 5 anticipated Adult Vamp Romance novels without feeling too guilty! If so and in case I don’t I should mention Lynsay Sands would top that list with all the phenominal Argeneau novels!
