Can you make a movie or TV version of these books?
Unfortunately, Kelley canâ€™t do that herself.Â A studio needs to approach her about buying the rights to the books to make a movie or TV version and that hasnâ€™t happened yet.
Can these books be read out of order?
They can, but Kelley doesnâ€™t recommend it because they really do form a trilogyâ€”one long plot over three books.Â She does a brief recap at the start of The Awakening and The Reckoning, but itâ€™s like walking into a movie partway through, and having someone quickly whisper whatâ€™s happened so far.
Why are there no vampires in these books?
Kelley does write vampires, but not often.Â With this trilogy, she wanted to explore less common supernatural types.Â However, because vampires are so popular, she has been invited to contribute stories to several YA vampire anthologies, and has done so with a spin-off character, Kat, who may eventually join the main series.Â You can find Katâ€™s stories in The Eternal Kiss and the upcoming Kisses from Hell.
Why were plot threads left dangling in The Reckoning if itâ€™s the end of the trilogy?
Because itâ€™s the end of the first trilogy, not the end of the series.Â The Darkest Powers tells the story of how these characters first got together.Â Kelley hopes to give them more adventures later.Â That wouldnâ€™t be possible if she tied everything off at the end of The Reckoning.
Is there a fourth Chloe book coming?Â
Not immediately.Â Kelley wants to give these characters a rest while she expands their world with the Darkness Rising trilogy (see below)
Is this another Chloe trilogy?
No.Â This one introduces new characters in a different Edison Group experiment.
Will any of the Darkest Powers characters appear in this trilogy?
Kelley intends to join the two groups of characters, but that wonâ€™t happen until at least the last book in this trilogy.
When does the first book come out?
Spring 2011.Â You’ll find the exact release date on the book’s page here: The Gathering.
