"Hey, Rhiannon Frater, when is the sequel coming out?"

I am often asked about sequels. A lot of fans have their favorite among the books that I've written and hope that I will continue with that world. Even when the author note says the book is a standalone or the book is the final in a series, I still get queries. clear up any confusion: 

There is no 4th book in the As The World Dies trilogy. It's a trilogy.

There is no sequel to The Last Bastion of the Living. It's a standalone novel. I don't even have an inkling of what comes next after the book ends.

There will only be three As The World Dies Untold Tales. The final volume has been delayed, but will include a 4th short story set 100 years in th
e future.

There are only three books in the Pretty When She Dies trilogy, BUT there are plans for at least one novella set in that universe. If the novella is popular and sells well, I'll consider either spinning off Cass and Aimee in their own series or continuing a novella series.

The Vampire Bride series is open ended with plans for offshoot novellas on other characters (Erzsebet, Gavriel & Ilinca). The major conflict between Vlad and Glynis is resolved in the third book.

I am considering making THE LIVING DEAD BOY into a trilogy. I have a pretty solid idea for book two that I rather like.

I have plenty of other awesome novel ideas that I'm dying to write. I don't want to get bogged down in series and sequels and all that jazz. I have a lot more ideas bouncing around in my head demanding to be written. I hope my fans will come along on the ride.

WARNING: There are spoilers in the comments about SIEGE. Read with caution.


  1. I'll take whatever you release. Your books are amazing!

  2. I love this trilogy my wife and i started reading the first days a week ago and we're nearly done with siege we are hooked it sucks to see that jenni died she was my favorite character she's so badass i think if a main character should have died it should have been travis he annoyed me well besides that a great read keep up the good work.

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed the book. Sorry you mourned the death of Jenni. LOL about Travis. If there is one character that I feel simpatico with, it's him. We share some traits. *wink*

      I'll keep writing as long as people keep reading!
