I get so many emails about this, and they always make me sad because the truth is, I'd always intended to write a second book from Raum's point of view after he leaves Helen. I even had it outlined. But the truth is, my publisher didn't pick it up, and I haven't figured out how to get the story to you. I really want to, though, so keep in touch. In the meantime, I hope you get the chance to try some of my other work. Thanks for being such a loyal reader!

Alice was taken to the Otherworlds by Samael, a sacrifice she made to save Lia's life. She could be trapped in the Otherworlds or she could have joined her mother, father, and Henry in the final world. I suppose only time will tell... ;)

I have a companion series based around the Altus characters (and Lia after she goes there with Dimitri), but I haven't figured out how to get it to readers as of yet. In the meantime, there are three digital shorts, Whisper of Souls, Mistress of Souls, and Rise of Souls, available on Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and Amazon. I hope you enjoy them, and I hope you've had a chance to check out my other work.

Thanks for being such a loyal reader!

Michelle shared a quote
What a lovely book this has been. <3
The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
“And didn't it always go like that--body parts not lining up the way you wanted them to, all of it a little bit off, as if the world itself were an animated sequence of longing and envy and self-hatred and grandiosity and failure and success, a strange and endless cartoon loop that you couldn't stop watching, because, despite all you knew by now, it was still so interesting.”
Meg Wolitzer
More of Michelle's books…
“I recall his somber eyes during that last, private conversation. His eyes and his words, far too wise for a boy of ten: only time will tell, Lia.
In the end, I suppose it will.”
Michelle Zink, Prophecy of the Sisters

“I avoid looking at the clock, fearing the slow passing of time that will only seem slower if I watch its progress.”
Michelle Zink, Prophecy of the Sisters

“Perhaps because it seems so appropriate, I don't notice the rain. It falls in sheets, a blanket of silvery thread rushing to the hard almost-winter ground. Still, I stand without moving at the side of the coffin.”
Michelle Zink, Prophecy of the Sisters

“Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you’ll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room.”
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

“One hot afternoon during the era in which you’ve gotten yourself ridiculously tangled up with heroin, you will be riding the bus and thinking what a worthless piece of crap you are when a little girl will get on the bus holding the strings of two purple balloons. She’ll offer you one of the balloons, but you won’t take it because you believe you no longer have a right to such tiny beautiful things. You’re wrong. You do.”
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

“The useless days will add up to something. The shitty waitressing jobs. The hours writing in your journal. The long meandering walks. The hours reading poetry and story collections and novels and dead people’s diaries and wondering about sex and God and whether you should shave under your arms or not. These things are your becoming.”
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

“One Christmas at the very beginning of your twenties when your mother gives you a warm coat that she saved for months to buy, don’t look at her skeptically after she tells you she thought the coat was perfect for you. Don’t hold it up and say it’s longer than you like your coats to be and too puffy and possibly even too warm. Your mother will be dead by spring. That coat will be the last gift she gave you. You will regret the small thing you didn’t say for the rest of your life.

Say thank you.”
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

“Maybe the world would burn. But if truth was all it took to start the fire, maybe it needed to.”
Marcus Sakey, Brilliance

I certainly will be reading your other and future books.
