Ashley asked Michael J. Sullivan:

Are there any plans on writing a story for after the ending of Percepliquis? I really, really, really enjoyed the ending but I would love to hear about what happens next! Hadrian and Royce are really great characters and all of the stories are very hard to put down. I can get lost in there world. I am really glad that there is the Crown Tower and the Rose and the Thorn that I haven't read yet.

Michael J. Sullivan Once upon a time, we're talking ten years ago when I first started writing The Crown Conspiracy, I envisioned writing Revelations, followed by a series covering the days of Nyphron, followed by a book covering the fall of Percepliquis (Esrahaddon's story). And then, and only then, writing forward in time after the story of Revelations. There is actually a plot-based reason for this as the questions raised in ancient history (concerning Yolric and Kile) would be finally answered in the post Revelations stories.

Even if I adhered to this plan, it would take a long time to get there. More importantly, and as disappointing as it is for you to hear, the future books would not include your favorite characters because the timeline would jump ahead centuries. I simply can't conceive of anything post Revelations that would include the main characters of the series and not be anti-climatic.

Sometimes less is more.
