Okay, I’ve had it with waiting for any sort of information on Shadow Warrior. Once someone is awesome enough to share Rachel Robert’s e-mail address with me, I’m shooting off an e-mail asking her about the status of Shadow Warrior. Of course, I figure it’s also the perfect opportunity to ask every single question we all have about the series in general. So here are mine. If you got questions of your own, put them in the comments; I’ll be sure to add them to the list.
Questions after the cut, because a lot of them spoil stuff from the second half of the series.
[Edit] Just shot off the e-mail! Here’s hoping for a response.
- How is work going on Shadow Warrior? When is the projected release date?
- Is there any news on the Avalon movie?
- Do Kara’s parents have names?
- If fairy creatures lose their powers when they say their names, how come all the fairy creatures the girls have met (the Fairimentals, Be*Tween, and many others) still have their powers?
- Why can’t the Fairimentals just create a new Fairy Map for the girls after the original ones were destroyed in Trial by Fire?
Are Warlock Diaries andIs “Legend of the LAOA” canon? If so, when do theydoes it take place in the series’ continuity? [First half of this one has already been answered. Thanks, SoozieQ.]
- Was the Spider Witch always meant to be one of the original three mages? [Note to readers: in the original edition, she’s some mutated fairy creature the Dark Sorceress just happens to be imprisoned with.]
- What was the role of the Insect Warrior who was allied with the Dark Sorceress and Spider Witch in the original edition? [Note to readers: the Insect Warrior is also imprisoned with the Sorceress and Spider Witch in the original edition. He does make a cameo in the new edition, though.]
- What’s up with Zach’s parents and their dark past?
- How long were the portals on the Magic Web closed before the series begins? How and when did they reopen?
- How exactly are animals from Earth descended from magical animals?
- The series offers two origins for merfolk: they either evolved from humans or mermaids. Which origin is correct?
- Were there other groups of mages who tried to find Avalon?
- How old were the original mages when they tried to open the Gates of Avalon?
- What’s the name of that winged horse Sierra is bonded to?
- Does that mysterious white unicorn that brought Kara to the Gates of Avalon have a name?
- Is Level 4 the highest level a mage can reach?
- Are warlocks human, or are they some weird magical humanoid species?
- Are you really Charlotte Fullerton? [I gotta find a more eloquent way to ask this one.]
- When exactly does each book in the series take place?
- Why does Kara start seventh grade in All That Glitters, but graduate from eighth grade in Full Circle?
- Were the books always meant to have similarities and references to the show Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders? [Argh, I need a better way to ask this one, too.]
