A while back, Jeaniene Frost announced there would be two books with Vlad and Leila (Vlad being a secondary character in her Night Huntress series and Night Huntress World novels). But what we didn’t know is that it’s not just two spin-off books part of the Night Huntress World novels.
It’ll be a spin-off SERIES!
Yes that’s right, Vlad is getting his own series *cheers*
Now, we don’t know the title of the first book yet, but what we do know is that it will release Spring 2012 if everything goes as planned, and the series name is… *drum rolls*…
Night Prince series!
(note this isn’t the cover, it’s fan art)
Here’s Jeaniene’s explanation of the title:
Okay, why “Night Prince”? For one, the word “Night” will – hopefully – let readers know at a glance that these stories are set in the same world as my Night Huntress series and Night Huntress World novels. Second, contrary to the most popular fictional rendering of Vlad the Impaler, he was not a Count. He was essentially a Prince of Wallachia during his reign (Wallachia now being part of modern-day Romania). So there you have the Prince part of the series title.
Are you as excited as I am?
