It's been five months since Light of Requiem, the third Song of Dragons novel, was released. Since then, many of you have emailed me to ask about a fourth novel. I deeply appreciate the time you took to read the books and contact me. Every email from you made my day! It's now time to post a dragon update.
As you know, Song of Dragons features a story arc with three clear acts, each contained within its own novel. At the end of Light of Requiem, the story arc is complete. I spent a lot of time thinking about a fourth book – reawakening the characters for another Song of Dragons adventure. The fourth book would have begun a new story arc – a second cycle within the same series.
Ultimately, I decided to do something a little different. You, the readers, would be best served not by a fourth Song of Dragons book, but a whole new dragon trilogy.
This new trilogy will still be set in Requiem – the same "world" as Song of Dragons. But it will be set years later. It will feature a new cast of characters – the descendants of the heroes from Song of Dragons. It will tell a new story, one independent of Song of Dragons. I've tentatively named this new trilogy Dragonlore (a title that might still change). I will complete the first volume this summer.
Fans of Song of Dragons need not worry. Dragonlore will feature all the things you (hopefully) enjoyed about the first trilogy – epic battles, noble heroes, vicious villains, darkness and light, and of course... lots of dragons. And if you haven't read Song of Dragons, you'll be able to read Dragonlore too; it will assume no prior knowledge.
Keep your eyes open for new updates. I'll post more information over the next few weeks. The new novel itself will be ready this year. I can't wait for you to read it.
Thank you again, dear readers. Your support keeps these books coming. I'm forever grateful to you.
