Okay, I just finished updating the word count edits on The Atheling. As time allows, I might go back and do this for the previous stories, too, but pushing forward into the closing volume(s) of this series is of more importance right now.

Big, big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave reviews! :D Meaningful feedback is important to me.

If you've enjoyed the series so far, I've already started a draft for book 5. There will be at least one more book to finish out the series, possibly two, depending on how word count stacks up. I'd rather have two small books that one big one. You can get alerts by following the last story or my author profile.

On average it takes about a year to turn out these scripts -- to check as many details as possible for consistency and flashbacks, etc. So, book 5 probably will not be ready until around summer 2016. I will post updates as it progresses.

Thanks for reading, and thanks again so much for the reviews! I enjoy hearing from you! :3

About Me and My Fiction:

Hello and welcome to my FictionPress account. I am a dark fantasy author, currently working on my third and fourth novels in the Elf Gate series. And I've decided I want to make the first three books available as a web serial, for a limited time, for free.

Elf Gate Series, Book 1: The Changeling is a portal tale about an English girl who gets abducted by a mysterious, bone-white elf. She is taken to the hidden realm by mistake, only to find out that humans are not welcome there, and she has no way back. The elf responsible for her abduction has problems of his own. He must avoid the bounty hunters looking for them, protect his friends and family from a civil war that is brewing, and find out what has happened to the ancient gates to make them targets of what appears to be necromantic sabotage. Who exactly is the changeling here? And can they learn to tolerate each other enough to work together to figure this out, so that she can go home?

Elf Gate Series, Book 2: The Fledgling is a continuation of the first book. Trizryn struggles with being a new vampire and telling Aija about their shared curse, so he enlists her aid in plans to steal his summoner's scroll. But when Kassí does her own investigation on their gate problems, she turns up more than one dangerous secret and leads the camp at Absin'navad to discover it has more immediate worries than being found by a Derra Eirlyn summoner.

Elf Gate Series, Book 3: The Darkling picks up right where the previous book ended. Trizryn must get his stolen documents to the Deep Warrens for translation if he ever hopes to find out what's wrong with the malfunctioning elf gates. Accepting the fae realm is a beautiful but cruel place, Aija pushes herself and her companions toward a gruesome discovery that leads her to believe she is not alone in the elven kingdom. And they are shocked to learn secrets about Trizryn's heritage even he didn't know.

Elf Gate Series, Book 4: The Atheling ... With the latest dragon attack, Aija lost another gate, but learned she is not the only human in the fae realm. She and Trizryn must now repair an old airship to rescue the refugees in the ruins of Absin'navad. That means facing off against the necromancer Ilisram ... if the assassin Mahntarei doesn't seek vengeance on both of them first.
