I just read that L.J Smith is currently working onbooks for the Secret Circle and Forbidden game series Is she kidding Come on She keeps making excuses about how she has to take her time in order to write Strange Fate well Maybe if she stopped writing books for the other series she would have finished Strange Fate by now I am actually very irritated with her I understood when I read about her family issues, which was why she took such a long break from writing I even understood I just read that L.J Smith is currently working onbooks for the Secret Circle and Forbidden game series Is she kidding Come on She keeps making excuses about how she has to take her time in order to write Strange Fate well Maybe if she stopped writing books for the other series she would have finished Strange Fate by now I am actually very irritated with her I understood when I read about her family issues, which was why she took such a long break from writing I even understood why she was waiting for her books to be re published However, THIS IS RIDICULOUS At this point, I don t think she will ever publish this book I ve been waiting for it for over a decade and I think that isthan enough time to write several amazing books, let along one I don t even know if I will bother reading this when it finally does come out sigh Sorry, I m just sick of waiting for this book lol I came to a strange realization recently I have been waiting for this book for 15 years, over half of my life.That is a bit disturbing. You can check out other reviews on my blog I m giving all readers a fair warning that there will be no fluffiness and cat gifs today There ll be emotive language and serious topics Deep breath I m going to assume that L.J Smith is never going to read this review because despite some, admittedly cute, pictures of a dog I really have no proof that she is still around.But on the off chance that she is alive and finds herself on this very page then I d like to say a couple of things.Firstly, You can check out other reviews on my blog I m giving all readers a fair warning that there will be no fluffiness and cat gifs today There ll be emotive language and serious topics Deep breath I m going to assume that L.J Smith is never going to read this review because despite some, admittedly cute, pictures of a dog I really have no proof that she is still around.But on the off chance that she is alive and finds herself on this very page then I d like to say a couple of things.Firstly, hi I hope you re doing well, really.I hope that you re healthy and happy and have a lovely life.I feel this way because as a reader I care about the person whose words I m reading, whose words evoke emotions in me I care.See, there s a special bond between a writer and a reader It s a bond that depends on loyalty and trust So when a writer, a novelist, is taken advantage of, I as a reader feel not only personally scorned on her behalf but am eager to do everything I can to show that I support and understand her But it also means that when I as a reader feel as if I am being taken advantage of, being deceived by someone to whom I m loyal, I feel completely betrayed.I m one of many And while it may seem over dramatic to be so emotional over a book, I don t care The Night World series means a lot to me I read it as a young teenager when I first started to discover what really made me happy Reading I love the concept of soulmates I always have and I always will I love the juxtaposition between the simplicity of the concept and it s undeniable complexity It s magical And I think we all need a little magic in our lives.But there s a difference between magic and illusion Whilst magic may be improbable and out there, there s an element of reality to it Illusion is just a mirage, it s a betrayal of sorts because there s nothing real there You re told that there s magic when really it s all a lie.That s how I feel about Strange Fate That it s a never ending illusion Almost, almost real but not quite A trick,a lie.I realise of course that I sound bitter and possible insane But I m upset I m upset that some people have waited even longer than I have and that realistically this illusion is never going to be the magic that we all crave Maybe I m wrong Maybe, just maybe Ms Smith has finished Strange Fate and is having it published right this second But I don t think that s likely And that is what upsets me.It makes me sad to know that for a book to take this long there is either no effort going into it or way, way too much I think that there s beauty in simplicity and as out of character as it sounds I would rather read ten simple stories about magical people finding magical silver bonds then one expertly written book with a complicated plot about magical people with a complicated magical bond I liked the simplicity I miss it, the effortlessness that the characters had It was easy And it was loved Lisa Jane Smith, I m sorry that you felt we neededthan what we had, because I know I didn t And if you are writing Strange Fate and it really is coming I implore you to please give us some form of indication, some kind up update.Because if not then I don t know why I m still waiting.It may even be time for us to all quietly exit the waiting room I think I ve matured since the last time I sat down to write about this book I munderstanding maybe Less patient, butunderstanding.Over Out, T xx _____________________________________________________________________________YET ANOTHER EDIT April 11th 2013 Alleged Release dates Barnes NobleThis item will be available on December 31, 2030 Umm. 2030 AREYOUKIDDDINGME Release date April 1, 2013 THIS ONE, was a fudging April fools I m not even kiddingFeb 2014 Let s face the facts, doesn t look as if we ll be meeting Sarah Strange anytime soon..ANOTHER EDIT September 20th 2012 The epic STRANGE FATE cuts that long time down to a year, so that you ll see all the soulmated couples as they are after about a year of living, learning, and loving Some even get married and one couple ends up expecting the patter of tiny footsteps Don t even ask who, because it s a deep, dark secret Source ljanesmith.net image error Any ideas Go ahead and leave a comment, I m completely buzzing when it comes to the Night World Yaaaaaaay EDIT June 8th 2012 I ve added kitteh s for dramatic effect Plus, they re cute 0What I mean.

What s up with that Ugh Over Out, T xx I think I was about 10 when I read all the books in this series Night World , the four original Vampire Diaries books, and all Secret Circle, Dark Visions and

finished The Last Lullaby So Strange Fate isn t the only lost book February 2013 the first chapter of Strange Fate first appeared on Ms Smith s website So one chapter is written, anyway November 2013 Ms Smith posts the What about Strange Fate really post, which tells us how she decided to split the book into the Strange Fate we hope to know and love and aserious dystopian novel called The Last Lullaby I actually emailed Ms Smith about this time, a quick Dystopias are fun, amirite and she responded a quick, They sure are kind of reply April 2014 we get articles about tribulations with Alloy, the publisher for Secret Circle and Vampire Diaries Ms Smith is no longer allowed to write for Vampire Diaries and Secret Circle Disagreements about which pairing is the true OTP seems to be the reason for giving VD to ghostwriters Ms Smith of course bit back by writing fanfiction of her own series so we could continue reading them The end of June 2015 had the last facebook post for a good long time It would be December before fans found out what happened, in the post entitled And Then I Woke Up You ve all read it so short version Ms Smith had a major medical emergency, was in a coma for like two months, and while she was well enough to post by Christmas she wasn t well enough to do all the normal life stuff She talks about the difficulty of life in a wheelchair and wanting to write a book with a wheelchair bound heroine Am I the only one who d love to read that book During 2016 Ms Smith facebooks mostly about her pets In January she gave us a chatty post about her still

author s note Ms Smith says Strange Fate is finished.January 9 2017 silence fell I couldn t find any news from Ms Smith after that date So what happened We don t know The obvious guess is that she suffered a medical setback that left her unable to blog or write In her blogs Ms Smith seemed just as eager to get Strange Fate to us as we are to read it, and even if she s just pretending to care about her fans I m sure she cares about paying her medical bills Logically, she s got to be doing her best to get the book to us.December 2017 I called up Simon Schuster to see if I could get any info

wasn t He also said the 2030 or whenever date we see inis just a placeholder date and doesn t actually mean anything.So that s the last word on Strange Fate for now things do not look good Strange Fate will probably never see the light of day But Ms Smith is still alive as far as the internet knows, and she sure seems like a determined lady, so maybe fate will deal her a better hand in coming years and she ll succeed in getting those lost books into the world UPDATE 3 2 2014 Yeah, maybe I should just accept the fact that this book is never coming out, albeit it saddens me to no end The below rant I wrote about two years ago Two years ago, LJ Smith told me it would be coming out soon WHEN IS SOON I have the feeling she s left this series to rot I ll have trouble moving on, but moving

GIRL LJ Smith says that this book is incredibly long hence consuming a lot of writing time, but seriously I think it s been many years now and she s focusing on her other books instead I probably won t live by the time the book is released because it took that long to publish Wait, that s not right I m younger than LJ Smith ANYWAYOne of Sarah s soulmates is apparently the last Wild Power Already Sarah sounds like some selfish snob keeping two boys to herself ARGH this is unfair It s wrong WHY ARE YOU GIVING ME THE WRONG IMPRESSION OF THE SHOULD BE KICK ASS CHARACTER, LJ UNLESS this is completely false and Sarah doesn t really have two soulmates I mean, soulmates are two souls made for each other, right and that the Wild Power or the other guy friend is a soulmate to someone else, I guess it s alright but leaked information like that really triggers bad reactions.I m still waiting eagerly for the book though Gosh I sound so nasty I m really frustrated I ve been so hyped up for this book from spoilers other people posted Please let it come already Update October 07, 2015 The year is now 2030 Pluto has been considered a planet again since 2014, the Super Moon occured in 2015,

know that a lot of people would buy it Because seriously, I just want to know how this series ends As of now, the expected publication is in October 20, 2012 This may change.Wait What Is this true I m calm Well, I ve only just been waiting for this since 2009 Three long, agonizing years So, no, I AM NOT CALM MAJOR EDITI was doing some research today and I learned that L.J had taken 10 years off of not writing I learned that she had personal family issues I believe family is the number one most important thing in the world so I understand why she hasn t gotten this book out yet When things start to alter your life you can lose your motivation for anything you do L.J must have lost her motivation and took a long break It is okay now though because would you want her to write Strange Fate in a

at her best Everyone has their own issues We re not L.J so we don t know what is going on in her life Shes doing the best she can and I appreciate it I just realized that I have been waiting 14 years for this book 14 That is disgusting With all of the demand for this book, I can t believe the publishers have not made her write it They had the audacity to re release the first 9 that should have meant something But the years on that are coming and going also.She can say all she wants about taking time When she was sick it was understandable, but the way she pumps out books now this is ludacris.

know that a lot of people would buy it Because seriously, I just want to know how this series ends As of now, the expected publication is in October 20, 2012 This may change.Wait What Is this true I m calm Well, I ve only just been waiting for this since 2009 Three long, agonizing years So, no, I AM NOT CALM MAJOR EDITI was doing some research today and I learned that L.J had taken 10 years off of not writing I learned that she had personal family issues I believe family is the number one most important thing in the world so I understand why she hasn t gotten this book out yet When things start
