I'm so glad you loved the Trent series! It always makes me happy to hear from readers who enjoy my work. In response to your question, I have good news and bad news for you. The bad news is that the first two books in the Trent series did not sell well at all. In fact, they sold so poorly that the publisher doesn't want to publish the third. Now here's the good news: You can help them change their mind by telling all your friends to read the Trent series. If we get those sales numbers up, there's a much better chance of the third one coming out! Thanks for your question, Bookworm, and keep reading!(less)

Thanks for asking. Goodreads didn't alert me to your reply, so I'm glad you've reprinted your question here. I have indeed been giving self-publishing the third volume a lot of thought! I don't know if I would crowd fund it--I've never done that--but it's looking increasingly like the only way the trilogy will be completed (or continued into a longer series, for that matter). I'm glad you like Philip, by the way! He's my favorite character!(less)

Final Girls

Final GirlsFinal Girls by Riley Sager
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I liked this one a lot! The prose is smooth and sly, which you don’t always find in thrillers, and the characters are remarkably well drawn, particularly Quincy and Sam. Being a jaded reader, I was able to anticipate some of the twists and revelations, but Riley Sager’s novel won me over regardless. Now I see why so many people raved about it! Highl

“It’s not as easy as it looks to come back from the dead.”
Nicholas Kaufmann, Dying Is My Business

“You're telling me a shape-shifting demon just walked out onto Fifth Avenue and blended in with the crowd?" I asked. "Hailed a fucking cab after tearing everyone to pieces down here?”
Nicholas Kaufmann, Die and Stay Dead

“The Mad Affliction's arm shot out of the cage, grasping for me. I jumped back. His long, ragged talons swiped the air in front of me.

"Free me!" the Mad Affliction cried. He grasped for Bethany, but she backed away, too. "Free me and know the living nightmare that is unending madness!"

"You're not doing yourself any favors," I told him.”
Nicholas Kaufmann, Die and Stay Dead
