The Eye of Andromeda

(Age of X #3)

The publishers dropped the Age of X series before the release of book 3 due to low sales. However, despite the low sales Mead commented, "For those still upset with its status, here's the thing. In two years, The Immortal Crown has sold as many copies as The Glittering Court has in one month. You don't even want to know how it compares to VA's sales. I still love Age of X, ...more

I'm glad to see the appropriate excitement for Age of X 3. :) For those still upset with its status, here's the thing. In two years, The Immortal Crown has sold as many copies as The Glittering Court has in one month. You don't even want to know how it compares to VA's sales. I still love Age of X, but publishers don't. So it currently has no one to publish it. Which isn't the end of the world. I have enough "street cred" to self-pub it, but contracted books have to come first. I've signed a legal agreement with publishers, and I have to deliver their books by the arranged deadlines. Which is okay. Because I love those books too. But it all requires a lot of patience to get everything out at the appropriate time!(less)

Let's hope we don't have to wait too far into 2015 to get the third book. After the incredible ending of The Immortal Crown, I need to see what happens next with Mae and Justin.

TWO YEARS. It's already been two years since I last checked for updates, and I'm now just finding out that it was dropped!!!!!!!!!!!! GIVE RICHELLE MEAD MORE CREDIT, YOU MONEY-MONGGERING PUBLISHERS.

WHAT. IS. HAPPENING. It's past the middle of twenty-freaking-sixteen and there still ain't a cover OR a solid release date. Richelle Mead, have you forgotten about this series? Please, take pity on us and give us something to hold on to while waiting. I'd be happy with a cover. I think

Update: April 2018

Just yesterday, Mead posted a status update on her Facebook page that said:
"And that's when you have no idea what I'm writing right now.

What could it be??? The Jerome/Carter spinoff everyone wants? Rose and Dimitri's Bed Bath & Beyond registry? The infamous Age of X 3? She-Ra fan fic? Something totally and completely new? Tell me your best guesses! I won't actually tell you if you're right, but we'll have fun."
So maybe there's hope? People keep heavily com

Two years later and I'm still waiting for this book. I think it's time for me to do a reread of books one and two while I continue waiting...

Guys.. it's 2017. what the actual hell is going on..... WHERE IS THIS BOOK?!?! Like should I give up on finding out how this story ends? I'm so annoyed.

I read The Immortal Crown when it first came out in 2014... can you guys understand that I am dying because this book hasn't come out yet??? I've been stuck on a cliffhanger for a

"TGC2 is also currently my only contracted series, which is why its deadline is such a priority. Once it's in, I'll spend the summer passing it back and forth with my editor for revision. During my "breaks," I'm hoping to put in time on Age of X #3."

9. Have you forgotten about Age of X #3?
Nope. It's still in the works. And it's pretty cool. But I have to answer to a larger publishing schedule that dictates when and what I write. If it makes you

This title has been listed under "to be announced in 2020"

I'm pretty much grasping at straws because i check for this title every 3 months or so, and have since 2014. But it smells like hoPE TO ME, PEOPLE

Don't crush me by telling me this website is bogus. I'm doing my best under present circumstances.

Richelle might recognize me as the fan hounding literally every Facebook post with questions about this book. I may have foregone so

This month marks 2 years since The Immortal Crown was released. Richelle has indicated she has already finished the novel and it's just waiting on the publishers. So, please publishers! Please give us a release date even if its a few months away. At least we would have a light at the end of the tunnel. Please!

Sooo... this book is a sure thing, right?

Ok...The Glittering Court Series has been finished for over a year after only 3 books. Now it is time to get back to work on The Age of X Series. There is nothing worse than being left hanging for over 5 years to find out what is going to happen in the next book. When can we expect to see the next book in this series come out??

I've just finished rereading The Immortal Crown and I go to check in the hopes that I didn't miss the release date but there is still nothing! I am craving and dying to know about Mae and Justin's next moves. Please publishers, give us a release date. Give us the books and we'll publish the shit out of it for you guys. I've waited two years. Please!

4 years later, I’m still haunted by this story and it’s lack of continuation. For the love of the Gods, can we please find out what happens next?! Maybe just offer it as an eBook and save the ink and trees, but do SOMETHING!

I think about this series and how much I wish there was a third book so often it’s a pain in my chest. I hope Richelle Mead decides to finish and self publish it. I mean, the end of the second book NEEDS a continuation!

I wish I had seen this before I started this series. It's been years and there's no book 3 in sight. I understand the author's commitment to the publishers. I get that she has contracts and the other series sell better and she has to follow the money trail, but this is a disservice to readers everywhere.

Self-publishing is an option, heck a chapter a week on Wattpad is an option. Plenty of well known authors have used Wattpad when the publisher was not interested in the book and later on went to
