brookeelizaxo said: Hi Cassie! I love your books so so so sooo much! I finished City of Heavenly Fire and it was amazing. I was wondering when the rest of your novels were being released (TDA, TLH, TWP, etc)? Are there set dates or years for the releases? Thank you for such wonderful series! :)

James was the young one, the boy with his whole life ahead of him, but there was no hope or joy in his face.

as i was reading this, the only thing i could think of was this tweet from cassie:

It might be in TLH. :)
