  1. Hi lou your blood and feathers series is fantastic.i have just finished reading rebellion and devoured it in a day. When is the next book out?

  2. Hi Gem – thank you so much for getting in touch!

    For the time being, I’m afraid I couldn’t give you a definite answer. As with most things in publishing, it’s complicated – but the shortest version is that for the moment, Solaris haven’t commissioned the final book in the Blood & Feathers series. This may change (you never know!) but even if it doesn’t, I will be going back to finish the story. I’ll keep you posted 🙂
