Frequently Asked Questions - August 2022 Edition

I've been getting some FAQ, so I wanted to pop onto the blog to answer them for anyone who might be wondering the same thing.


When is Royal Rebel (Fate of Eyrinthia #4) coming out?

A: I don't have a specific release date yet, but you can expect it early 2023. I will keep you posted via social media and my newsletter (you can subscribe to it here: https://www.heatherfrost.com/contact )


How many books will be in the Fate of Eyrinthia series?

A: There will be six novels.


How many novellas will there be in the Fate of Eyrinthia series?

A: There are currently plans for 5 novellas. Some are set in the past, before the events of Royal Decoy, and the others happen in line with the main storyline.


Will there be hardcovers of the novellas?

A: No. I don't have any plans to make the novellas available in hardcover, because the cost for that format just probably wouldn't be worth it for you for a shorter book.


What order should I read the novellas in?

A: Fire & Ash can be read at any time; I recommend reading it after you've read Royal Spy, because then you'll know Desfan better, but it really doesn't matter. Shield & Blade MUST be read after Royal Captive (Fate of Eyrinthia #3).

Are you working on other books, or just Eyrinthia?

A: Yes, I am working on some other projects as well. I find it impossible not to, and, honestly, working on different projects keeps my creativity flowing and my excitement fresh. More on this soon :)


Do you have any book recommendations that are similar to the Fate of Eyrinthia series?

A: There are some great YA fantasy romances out there! The list below contains some recommendations off the top of my head. There's a wide variety of fantasy (some of the books have magic, some don't) as well as differing romantic heat levels, so you can pick whatever sounds best to you.

  • The Kiss of Deception, by Mary E. Pearson (this series is one of my favorites!)

  • Throne of Glass, by Sarah J. Maas

  • A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J Maas (this one is probably more New Adult, and the content level reflects it. But book 2 is probably my favorite book. Ever.)

  • Touch of Power, by Maria V. Snyder

  • Falling Kingdoms, by Morgan Rhodes (this series captures the dual POVs you see in Eyrinthia, and it's been compared to a YA Game of Thrones.)

  • The False Prince, by Jennifer A. Nielson (less romance, but it's a medieval fantasy world without magic, and I feel like it's very underrated!)

  • A Curse so Dark and Lonely, by Brigid Kemmerer

  • An Ember in the Ashes, by Sabaa Tahir (I haven't finished the series yet, but I couldn't put down book 1)

  • Snow Like Ashes, by Sara Raasch (I haven't finished the series yet, but really enjoyed book 1)

  • Reign of Shadows, by Sophie Jordan

  • The Wrath and the Dawn, by Renée Ahdieh
