Jamie sent me this question a few days ago, from my “Darkyn Series Reading Order Guide”:
“When is Lynn Viehl gonna put out a new book?”
Well, Jamie! You’re in luck! Despite having originally “retired” the series, Lynn has decided to continue writing about the Darkyn, via a new trilogy (book#1 will be: Nightborn: Lords of the Darkyn – expected release March 6th 2012).
She posted this on her blog (FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2012):
“Now that I’m returning to writing Darkyn novels, I do wonder at times if history might repeat itself. For the second time in my career I’ve revived a series that my publisher killed but that the readers wanted me to keep writing. I have three new Darkyn novels under contract, and if these do well, I can certainly write more after this trilogy concludes. Since this has been my bestselling series to date, and readers have been very vocal about wanting more books, I think I have a fairly decent shot.
That said, I can’t take anything for granted. While how well the new trilogy does is 99% dependent on things beyond my control, I know I can make more of an effort to do what I can for the series and its readership.”
Super excited for the reawakening of the Darkyn series!!
