It all depends on how well The Archived and The Unbound do in terms of sales. If it's popular enough, the higher the chances of a third book.(less)

HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT THIS HAS A TITLE I AM EMOTIONAL OH MY GOD.

will i ever stop editing this? haha no i will not
i will write you a love letter, ms schwab, just for a teaser.
i will write you as many bad and cringe worthy love letters as i possibly can for this book.
hopefully you'd just prefer fan letters but do know that love letters are an option.

Dear Victoria,

You know you want to write this, you know we all want you to write this... I bet the characters are screaming from within: "let us out, let us tell the whole story!"

I hope you will..
Soon..

Please don't give up on Book 3. I can't thoroughly explain in words how much of an impact reading The Archived and The Unbound did in my life. I've lost a lot of my loved ones and how I wish there was some way I can see them again or maybe even bring them back. Reading this series, no matter how painful and relatable the story is, also saved me from depression and all my what-ifs in life. Please Victoria, I really hope you can give me the Book 3. I am dying to know what happens next. This book c ...more

I have high hopes for this. Very high hopes. I have added this series to my rereading list so that I can read the short story #2.5 Leave The Window Open (that can be found here: https://veschwab.wordpress.com/2015/0... ). The Returned was supposed to come out late 2015 to 2016... so it's an any day now kinda thing. I'm crossing my fingers that Wesley and Mackenzie become Crew!! And HOLY BISCUITS DID YOU SAY RONALD IN THE REAL WORLD (there's a link a few reviews down if that's news to you)
Charon Lloyd-Roberts
Finally some closure we're getting a final book, thank goodness this is one of my favorite trilogies and I just hope it all wraps up nicely and now we wait to see the cover and of course a final summery which I'm looking forward to seeing whenever we get one but still I'm looking forward to this.

Speaking of which Victoria Scott we still need closure for the Fire & Flood series yeah that still needs to happen too! Just putting that out there.

Victoria is the product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a southern upbringing. Because of this, she has been known to say "tom-ah-toes," "like," and "y'all."

She also tells stories.

She loves fairy tales, and folklore, and stories that make her wonder if the world is really as it seems.
