Apparently, everyone keeps asking Karen Marie Moning — author of the awesome FEVER series, so she’s answering it again and asking fans to spread the word. In my humble opinion, the reason for this confusion is that she is continuing to write about our fave world and characters, so it’s natural that readers would want/wish hope for more Mac & Barrons books.
According to her website KMM is:
Working on a trilogy that features Dani, Christian MacKeltar, Ryodan, and the mysterious ‘Dancer,’ set primarily in Fever-Dublin. Each installment in the trilogy is a stand-alone mystery, however there are larger plot arcs unfolding in the background. Where Mac was introspective and her story could feel somewhat esoteric, Dani is down and dirty in the streets. Lots of details, lots of action. There’s a different feel to the two series, totally different vantage points. I’m having a blast writing it.
She says the trilogy is not YA. Instead, 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? LOL! Many of the questions I left unanswered in the FEVER series are addressed in this new series.”
Now, here’s where Mac & Barrons fans will get extra excited. After KMM finishes the Dani trilogy, she is writing two more books that return — as she says — “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.”
Sooooooo — there are more books coming — although I haven’t tracked down release dates. (I’m sure they’re floating around the web somewhere.) But you can bet we’ll get more of the Mac & Barrons story because KMM gives us a little warning:
Because I know you guys, I know this is going to make some of you as nervous as it makes you excited. Trust me. I’m making no compromises with the characters or the story. It’s all unfolding exactly as it should, true to itself-which means, it’s a sometimes rocky road. Dark times ahead, guys. But I write it all with genuine love for the characters, the world, and you the reader.
