Brionwy's Lullaby

on 12 August 2010. Posted in Sneak Peeks

thumb_BrionwyThis began as part of the Night World book Strange Fate, but the characters were so compelling . . . that the tale grew in the telling.  It is now being planned as an independent, standalone book, with vague connections to the Night World, perhaps.  In any case, it will follow the Post- Apocalyptic adventures of the courtesan Brionwy and her young “abled” friend Crispy as they fight to escape the Slave Farm to which they both belong. Rating: for mature people who enjoy suspense and vampire tales.

You are such an amazing writer! One of my own inspirations! I fell in love with Night world books and even cried when I knew the last book was coming up, but after reading this I don't want to wait any longer. I can't believe the book won't be out until 2014! It's insane, but I know it'll be worth the wait!

Quoting Raven:
You are such an amazing writer! One of my own inspirations!

It's insane, but I know it'll be worth the wait!

I am not sure who is placing these arbitrary publish dates but I would not trust them. Only the publisher of the book can decide when it gets published so until you get the date from the publisher I would not trust it. On the same topic, L. J. Smith is currently writing the Brionwy's Lullaby AND Night World: Strange Fate. Last time I've checked, these two books are being edited right now. I can't say it for sure but I think these books could make it to bookshelves before 2014. Just my guess. :lol:

I'm wishing so hard for the books! At least I can trust you, the Administrator! Before 2014! I swear, I'm going to start screaming right now! Thanks. But I won't get my hopes up too high; I remember the crushing despair I felt when I was disappointed, before about the date.

Oh Godess!
I think Briowy's dwenna (duenna) is a witch. And Brionwy has violet eyes herself. Maybe she is a witch just the same? I would have thought that the dragons and vampires would have killed all the witches after they won the apocalypse. So how come (id Brionwy is a witch, that is) a lost witch is still alive?
I really like Brionwy's personality! The way she thinks, the way she sees the world she lives in... She seems so much different from all the other courtesans, that way she still see herself as a person. It seems that she still have a spak left in her heart that makes her more alive than all the others. And of course I love the fact that she read books! If I were a courtsan in that house I would also have sneaked off to read in the library. All the time. :lol:
.
This sneak peek makes me wonder if this is a love story with soulmates.
This is a wonderfull sneak peek of a entralling story. Thank you, L. J. Smith :-) .

Throughout reading the sneak peek, I was just thinking, 'What happened to Circle Daybreak? The Wild Powers? The SOULMATE Principle?'
Nevertheless, it was intriguing and Brionwy is a very smart character. The Overseer - I think - may actually be her soulmate. Maybe.
This sneak peek just has me starving for more. I can't wait for Strange Fate and The Last Lullaby!
Also, I heard that a Night World movie is going to come out, is this true?

No, it's not. Though that would be great but hard to make. And I doubt it'll be half as good as the books.

There are currently no plans for a Night World show/movie. But that doesn't mean there never will be. I would be super excited for any show/movie based on Lisa's books if they follow the books and give Lisa as much input as possible.

Also Lisa has mentioned on Forum that some changes have been made to The Last Lullaby. It is no longer part of Night World with witches, vampires, and shapeshifters. It is its own stand-alone book. The sneak peak is still accurate, though. Lisa has also provided a synopsis of the book here.http://www.ljanesmith.net/www/images/stories/downloads/LJaneSmith_OverTwoDozenThingsYouNeverKnewAbout_LJSMITH.pdf

The synopsis is at the bottom, but before that Lisa answers several other interesting questions about herself.

I really like the setting in this story! It's much different from any of The Night World stories. I'm interesting to read the rest of this. Hopefully after I read Strange Fate, since I'm dying to hear about this apocalypse. If you finish writing anything I know us Night World fans are begging for our curiosity about this final wild power to be satiated. But after that finally comes out, Brionwy's Lullaby sounds like it's probably going to be my new obsession! Thank you for all the wonderfully creative stories!

There is no exact date for either. Miss Smith was working on the press release for The Last Lullaby (the new title of Brionwy's Lullaby) saying it should be available in 2014. She also said she is finishing up Strange Fate and hopes that it will be released next year as well.

I loved this story. It has such a great plot and i really hope to see more of Brionwy in Strange Fate. I've been looking forward to it for almost a year now. I just keep reading the Night World novels over and over again. I just loved the suspense at the end. I'm really excited. >w
