Holly Black asked E. Lockhart:

Related to Gayle's question, I have always read Disreputable History (which is glorious and which I love desperately) as a kind of antihero origin story. As such, I have a desperate desire to know more about what Frankie gets up to after the end. Not that I am asking you to tell me, but do you know?

E. Lockhart Thanks, Holly. I know you know the antihero origin story well, and The Curse Workers series is an amazing example of that -- with a lot of twists.
YES. YOU ARE RIGHT. I think it is an antihero origin story -- or else, it is the opposite -- a hero's tale. I am not sure which. Anger can fuel action in several directions. Frankie is a very angry person, and I admire what she does with it -- and it also scares me. I really do not know what happens after The Disreputable History ends.
