    Like Lucas, is there to be a follow up story of Dorrin’s elevation to Paladin, Camwyns recovery, Arvid and Paks future?

    We’ve been left in Limbo

    Liked Speed of Dark and Remnant Population, and loved the whole Vatta, (BOTH series,) clear up to Into the Fire; and hope more in the second series, SOON.

    Hi Elizabeth,
    I have loved reading your Paladin’s Legacy series, but wonder if you intend to follow up the story of Dorrin’s elevation to Paladin.
