5 Important Things We Learned From Richelle Mead’s Reddit AMA

SHARE

Ahead of the release of The Glittering Court Richelle Mead was on Reddit’s super popular AMA  (Ask. Me. Anything) session and as the rules state, people were asking her anything! Some INTERESTING things got revealed and we need to talk.

 

More Vampire Academy?

When asked about the fan favorite series and if she would ever return, Richelle hinted: I’m currently working on some TOP SECRET new stuff that’s continuing on in the VA world. Muhahahahhaha!

 

The hidden gem series

A great question from a fan about which Richelle’s books she felt didn’t get as much as love from the fans. The Glittering Court series is a gem (get it??) with a style that isn’t always recognized. Each book’s story is told in parallel, so you can read them in any order, and each book has little mysteries you don’t notice until you read one of the others. That was a super hard thing to write!

 

Dimitri and Rose vs Mira and Grant

When discussing similarities between her fictional couples, Richelle compared iconic Dimitri and Rose to Mira and Grant from The Glittering Court series: I suppose there’s that similarity of him teaching her something, but the dynamics are otherwise totally different. Grant’s a little more selfish than Dimitri, and Mira’s a little more cool-headed than Rose. And they’re all in their situations for very different reasons. Of course, they all have smoldering physical attraction in their pairings, so there’s always that! :)

 

Post Bloodlines

A question about what might happened for Declan (Sydney and Adrian’s adoptive child), had Richelle dropping this MAJOR tease: Declan’s story was left open for a reason, and his unique birth will play a major role in the next evolution of the VA world. :)

 

Shout out to the Age of X fans

There was a vocal contingent of the Age of X series, all wanting to know when the next book was due! And while it wasn’t good news as such, Richelle is slowly chipping away at the series and it’s good see people are ready for more!
