I am both elated and a little concerned. Karen Marie Moning announced this morning
her plans for the future of her Fever series. She says, in part:
I'm currently working on a trilogy that features Dani, Christian MacKeltar, Ryodan, and the mysterious 'Dancer,' set primarily in Fever-Dublin... I’ve agreed to write two more books after that. Once the new trilogy is complete, I’m returning to the core story begun in the FEVER series, and will resume writing about Mac, Barrons, V’lane, Cruce, the Unseelie king, the concubine, the Song of Making.
First of all, I am thrilled to hear than Barrons and Mac have more story to tell.
And not just because I want to read about them having more sex. Though, admittedly, who would turn that
down? No... it's that I want to see where they go from here. The very fact that she mentions V'lane means he can't remain frozen forever, right? I'm over the moon on this.
The anxious part comes with the Dani stories. I have never been a big fan of Dani. The way she talks grates on me. She is impulsive and immature. And that's understandable when you acknowledge the fact that she is a child. But her youth makes her a poor candidate to be the female lead in story featuring a 20-something Highlander-turned-Unseelie-Prince and a thousands of year-old, well, whatever the hell Ryoden is. I would pin my hopes on the possibility of a big time jump, but Moning says:
The trilogy is not YA. If I had to categorize it, I would say it straddles the line between YA and adult uneasily. I don’t pull any punches. It may be controversial in some ways. But whose teen years weren’t?
I think I am uncomfortable already. Which makes me kind of pissed off because I want to feel nothing but squee about this. Part of me knows I have to just trust that Moning knows what she is doing. After all, she rocked my socks off with the existing installments of this series.
I think I am going to practice some deep breathing exercises and resume my Google search of David Gandy photos. You can't go wrong with Gandy.
