So, anyway, there are a lot of questions left unanswered by the first book and I promise that some of them will be tackled in Book 2. Certainly, we'll learn more about the four "old" men who have looked after George throughout her life. But what I'm particularly excited about is the fact that we'll be seeing more of the lands held by the demon dukes.
I'm a great fan of David Eddings' Belgariad series so if you're familiar with his work, you should know that I patterned the Kingdom of Chalys after his brand of world building. I am hoping that, like the great David Eddings, I'd be able to describe the various dukedoms vividly enough for all of you to lose yourself in it. :) You'd only need to close your eyes and you'll be able to easily imagine how it is to live in, say, Asphodel, Brimstone, or Sulphur.
But hey - don't worry. The second book won't be lacking in romance. I love romances as much as you do so there will be a lot of sexy and romantic times between Silviu and George and...mm....
You'll see! =D
