With Triumph of the Crown releasing on the 22nd, I’ve been spending some time outlining future installments of the series. Triumph marks book ten out of fifteen volumes, but more importantly, it brings a large story arc to its conclusion.
Heir to the Crown was always imagined as a “Grand Trilogy”, consisting of three long story arcs spread over a total of fifteen books. Of course, that doesn’t include the Mercerian Tales. The first story arc concerned the rise of Anna from lost little girl to Queen of Merceria.
The second group of five, starting with Burden of the Crown, began the next installment, that of securing the throne against foreign threats. Naturally, that’s an oversimplification of the plot, but you get the idea.
Now, the third set of stories is all about…sorry, I can’t reveal that just yet. You’ll have to wait and see.
Until next time, Happy reading!
