I'm so excited! My Vine copy just arrived today. I know what I'll be doing tonight and into the wee hours of the morning. :)

Does anyone know if there is another book planned to follow Devil's Brood? For some reason I'm thinking there is. Please tell me I'm right!

I was so excited when I saw it on the Vine Newsletter. My copy came yesterday. About 60 pages in. My only complaint - the book is huge and kitty and it don't fit on the lap at the same time ;) :p

My cats are too big to fit them and a book so they sandwich me one on either side. And it is a big book. I'm so used to my kindle but somehow I'll manage :p :D

I thought Devil's Brood was marketed as the third and final book in the Henry II trilogy? I'm thinking that the Richard I novels, though separate, could possibly be seen as a sort of continuation of the series.

Starla has done very well with the Hills diet food, but a Penman doorstopper is more than she can share ;)

@ Annis, not sure if they're counting these as a separate series or a continuation. Too sleep deprived to research tonight.

Lionheart and Ransom are part of the Henry II/Eleanor series-just an added bonus. According to Sharon's past blog and FB posts, there doesn't seem to be any planned books after Ransom exclusively dealing with the family but other possible projects that will incorporate some key characters. I don't want to speak for her though so maybe plans have changed!

In the galley that I have, she mentions in her authors notes that this will be her last book about the Angevins, at least for now. Her next book will be about Henri of Champaigne.

Ransom will be out on March 4, so not much longer to wait.

For those of you who have to book already... how many pages? I need to make sure there is a big enough spot for it on my shelf.

Make a large space on your shelf...685 pages including afterword, author's note, and acknowledgements.
