    Will there be another book in this series? I just read the series this week and the ending of Raven’s Ladder seemed to be an end-of-the-season cliffhanger. I assumed it was a trilogy, but I’m hoping it’s not and Mr. Overstreet is working on Book #4!

    There are four books in the series. The fourth, The Ale Boy’s Feast, should arrive in early 2011.

    I am soooo very glad to hear there will be another book to this wonderful series. I stumbled across the second in a markdown rack and as soon as I finished it I rushed in and bought the first and third as well. I am excited to read another wonderful novel.

    So, I was looking on the Alive Communications website because I do hope to get published one day, and I saw two of my favorite authors: Donita K. Paul and you! And, I saw under your name the cover of “The Ale Boy’s Feast,” and I mentally jumped for joy. Having just finished Raven’s Ladder a couple of weeks ago, I, of course, was left with some questions that I may have already answered in my head, but I look forward to you answering for me in the next strand of Auralia’s Thread! Anyway, I said all that to say: I can’t wait until “The Ale Boy’s Feast” comes out!
