I am looking forward to those.  It has been too long since the last Heirs of Alexandria book came out.  Thanks for the info :D

I just finished To Take a Thief. I wish there were more books with Skif as the main hero, he is one of my favorite characters!

I just picked up the last book in the Enduring Flame trilogy today, The Phoenix Transformed. I am really liking it so far.

The problem with Mercedes Lackey is her Valdemar world is starting to get boring after so many books and the few series she did have that were doing well died off. The Diana Tregarde Investigation series was doing well and she let it die off. It had real potential. I think even Ms. Briggs could takes the series over and give it a new breath of life.

stalkers trying to steal her magic type people

I think if she revived it Now, she might not have that problem, with all the stories of magicians, witches etc. around.

then again, she might.

What I read a while ago was that the Diana Tregarde series/world was dropped because people were taking them as 'how to' manuals for dark magic.
Then she had the idea of tying them to her "SERRAted Edge" stories of elves, so that people would be forced to understand, "IT'S FICTION, DIPSTICKS" so she may write more of them, but she's working around the edge with the Eric Banyon ones for now.

Wow! I hadn't known all the crazy reasons why she quit writing them!

I think Patricia Briggs could do them real justice. They are really good novels and the main character is some thing I could see in her world. Maybe Ms. Lackey would trade or give her permission for another author to write them. I know she is very protective of the Valdemar series. That's her baby right there. You need permission from the fan club to even write any fan fiction for that universe.

Bah. You can write until your finger fall off.  Sharing it will get you smacked, though.
And I don't think Our Hostess wants to write in someone else's world.

Why on earth would our hostess want to write in someone elses world when she has enough books lined up in her own worlds to take her half way through the next decade ???

I'm just saying that. The series could continue with her. I think and feel that Patricia Briggs does an excellent job with the characters she has and the series she writes. The Diana Tregarde series would fit nicely in Ms. Briggs world with little or no modification to the characters at all. I just feel it's a waste to let some thing so good go by the way side.

 I rarely say things of this nature about a series or author.

Ms. Lackey was a protege of Ms. Zimmer Bradley and even her stuff now is being written by a ghost writer because of the demand of her fans.
