Actually, it's not difficult at all! The release months for the rest of the series have been announced for some time.

You can add the whole series to your Goodreads TBR right now: https://www.goodreads.com/series/155275

Earth's End (Book 3) comes out on February 11th.

Book 4 will be coming out in April and book 5 will be coming out in July. I have yet to announce titles or final dates. But they will happen in those months. Air Awakens will be 5 books in total.

I'm a pretty quick writer, and I like trying to keep my release schedule with a new book every 3-4 months as long as it's in my control to do so. I know how hard it is to wait for the next installment and don't want to keep my readers needlessly waiting! But I do want to make sure I have enough time to run my books through multiple stages of editing.

I'm planning on it being five books in total for the series. However, the world is much larger and I do have a couple Novella ideas I'm toying with in my head to show different parts of the world's history and precursors to the characters that we meet in Air Awakens. So, in the primary series itself, five books. Overall from the world? There's the possibility for a lot more.

In general? As an author? I'm hoping to write for the rest of my life. So, a lot. :D

A Deal with the Elf King by Elise Kova
I honestly had the hardest time shelfing this book. Personally, I think it sits right on the cusp of older YA and adult fantasy.

Luella, the heroine, is 19 years old and is both independent, but naïve in other ways. While there is some "on screen" sex See Full Answer

You're so very right, Elise! What are you doing is the way how one makes people feel something. I have reading so many books, but only a few times I was in love with characters so much that I couldn't go on, I was crying with them, laughing, falling and rising. And I was thinking over their choices and feelings while I was reading another books. Your series is such a case. When an author doesn't try to cover somethings or make it smoother and propitiate, when he or she doesn't suppress what has to be told - a reader has no chance to stay dispassionate. You made me love you characters and now I'm interesting in everything, no matter what they do - sitting and staring into nothing, talking, walking, they can forget about war and just be on the pages and I would be in awe. The plot is an important thing and Fire Falling's plot was amazing! But I think a connection with MCs is something more and something that isn't easy to orchestrate (rather impossible). And you managed to do it) I just wanted to let you know how great it is. Okay, maybe my boss won't agree with us, 'cause I couldn't stop reading even at word xDD Thank you again!

Aww, I'm so honored you enjoy my work! I can only hope I continue to craft a tale that you find enthralling.

You know, I struggle so much with "classifying" Air Awakens. Yes, it is a coming of age story in many ways where Vhalla grows into herself and discovers that who she really is as a person lies in the intersection of what she wants for herself, what she can have, and what the world's expectations are. But, I also wanted to be true to the subject matter. If I am writing about war, hate, love, I wanted to capture those emotions in a way that I hope is sincere and yet "YA Appropriate". I believe books play an important role in inspiring discussion so I try not to gloss over or simplify those complex situations and feelings.

ps: you'are one of a few authors who work on upper-ya area (I mean, real problems, smart and wise characters, sensual scenes (not cut ones, but detailed), this is awe-thing for still young but already mature people)
