    Will we learn about Maleficent’s relationship with the three good fairies? Also I know the princesses take a back seat to the villains in the novels but will Aurora make a brief appearance?

      You will learn about her relationship with the Good Fairies. And Aurora will have a larger role in this book than the other princess have had in my pervious novels.

    Do you think we will get to see the cover art any time before the book is released?

    Will we find out why Maleficent hated and distrusted Ursula?

    Just curious, but what makes you put the Villains in the same time period & sharing the same world together, since each of their stories take place at different time periods in their respective films.

    The Evil Queen/Queen Grimhilde: The Middle Ages.

    The Tremaine family: mid-19th century.

    Maleficent: 14th century.

    Ursula: around the 1890s.

    Beast/Prince Adam: late 18th century.

      It’s a fantasy world. There’s more freedom to play with the centuries.

    I am so excited about your new line of books!! My question is could you please please beg Disney to let you release the book sooner than October 2017. I know its a rush but I am pregnant and I would love to have the start of the new series to read prior to delivery haha. Please im sure I would not be the only fan who would appreciate it. Congratulations on the new series!

      oh my goodness! I wish I could but it’s already scheduled for October! But I’m happy you’re loving the books and hopefully you will have some quiet moments to read while the baby is napping. Congratulations on your baby! And may you both be very happy and healthy.

    Will the book be similar to the Maleficent movie they just made not too long as ago from Maleficent’s point of view with Angelina Jolie? Or will it be different? Or be a sort of mix? I just read Fairest of All and loved it, gotta crack down on the other two. Love them!

      No. This story is based on the original animated feature just like my other books. I’m so happy you liked Fairest of All and I hope you enjoy the others as well! Thanks so much

    Hello Serena, how are you?
    I’m Brazilian and I love your books from Disney villains! *-*
    I read it several times and I’m very excited for new ones!
    As a fan request, I would like to ask a question >////< :
    Are you planning to cast some on the past of Jafar (Aladdin) and Hades (Hercules) ?? They are my favorite villains and I really wanted to be able to read some history about them! <3

    I look forward to your response! <3 love you ! Your Work is amazing *—*
    Hugs, Scarlet

      I am so happy you like the books! And I love hearing from my Brazilian readers! It makes me happy my books have traveled all that way. I would like to explore Hades, but probably not in a book of his own though I do see him appearing in the books as a minor character. Have a lovely day and thank you.

    What will the tale Mistress of All Evil be about? And what role will the Odd Sisters play in this tale?

      Mistress of all Evil will take up where I left off in the last novel,Poor Unfortunate Soul, as well as tell the backstory of Maleficent and how she became evil. I don’t want to say how the odd sisters will be involved because it will give too much away, but I will say they knew Maleficent since she was rather young.

    But will the odd sisters make an appearance in this novel or are they still in a death like sleep from the last novel?

    Do you have plans for Verona to appear again? After she was banished by the Evil Queen, her fate is unknown, since she only appears in “Fairest of All”. I haven’t read “Poor Unfortunate Soul”, so I could be wrong.

      We haven’t seen Verona since Fairest of All, though I wonder how old she would be in the current storyline? Quite old I imagine. She may be interesting to revisit. I shall think about it.

      Come to think of it, she is mentioned in Mistress of All Evil, but she isn’t actually in any of the scenes.

      You’re very kind, thank you. I’m so pleased you’re enjoying the books. I can’t say who will be next in the trilogy, but I will say she is a likely candidate.

        Is Mother Gothel also a likely candidate for Book #5? I just think from a writing perspective she could be a very interesting character to create a backstory for.

    Your books are the best books I have read. I am glad you are going to release a book about Maleficent in October. That is actually the perfect time of the year to release her book because indeed Maleficent is powerful enough to scare any cartoon hero and yet I know it will be interesting. The backstories of The Evil Queen, The Beast and Ursula were great too.

    So I am curious as to what the full title is going to be for this one. Mistress of All Evil: A Tale of the Bad Fairy? Or something along those lines?

      Since Maleficent is refered to as the Dark Fairy, it should be “Mistress of All Evil: A Tale of the Dark Fairy”.

        Yes, that will be the title 🙂

    Is Scar a good idea for book 5? He is my favourite villain. I have read Fairest of All and the Beast Within. I couldn’t put them down! I can’t wait until I start Poor Unfortunate Soul!

      I don’t think I’ll be doing a book about Scar. I tend to stick with the human villains. But thanks for the suggestion. I’m so happy you’re enjoying the series though and I hope you enjoy Ursula’s story.
