According to Wikipedia Kristen and PC Cast will work on a 4th novella about Kalona. It will be released sometime between book 11 and 12 (12 being the final book.)

Finally! One of the biggest issues I have with Kalona is that he never mentions how he pissed Nyx off. Whenever it comes up he just goes on about love and such but that isn't an answer. He had to have done something but he won't even admit that he has, just goes on about love some more. It irritates me beyond hell. It's why I refuse to put any faith in him.

The timing on this novella is obviously very telling in itself, as those events of how Kalona went from guardian to villain might also lead to him reforming if he came to terms with whatever happened in his past. Or it might hold the key to how Zoey makes him go poof like in Aphrodite's vision which still sounds very attractive to me.

I wanna know about Kalona to. I wanna know what he was before he even became a villain. It may also go into more detail on his time with the Cherokee ppl.

Well, apparently it will be a novel. I'm definitely looking forwards to learning more about Kalona. I already find him very interesting but would like to understand him better than I currently do.

I agree I think it will be amazing to read what happened with him and why he is the way he is trully and getting deep into his mind. I think this will be one of the best novellas.

Oh yeah, definitely gonna get that one if it ever reaches to Finland (though after Hidden was published here around same time as everywhere else, I have my hopes up^^).

WazzuMan said pretty much everything I wanted to say, so I won't be repeating it. Just waiting for this book so badly!

Wow, i can't wait 'till it's released. Having an insight to Kalona's side of the story may change my view of him. But until then...

I have to wait till the 20th to even think about getting it. But once I do I will likely finish it within hours of me starting the book.

Finished it. Wow, I gotta say it gave a really good insight to why Kalona ended up like his in HoN books. Towards the end I was repeating a mantra of "Kalona no don't!" and I also gotta admit that I feel really sorry for him. Also hats off to the Cast duo for creating such a complicated character^^ the novella brought a whole new side to Kalona and I'm very happy for it.

And as said, illustrations are beautiful.

I've read it and found it as insightful as the previous novella. I find it a little strange coming from the perspectives of immortals who view and interact with the world differently. I can't say I like or sympathise with Kalona or even have the tiniest bit of respect for him however my view of him is less harsh now I finally understand the circumstances of his "fall".

Not gonna lie, I'm about 100 pages in and I've forced myself to read it. I used to enjoy the HoN books but lately they just seem so simplistic it makes them hard to read. it's been alright so far it's just... i don't know..

I get you 100%. Similarly, these books lost a great deal of appeal to me very early on and slowly reclining. I think my biggest gripes is the heavy supernatural/fantasy elements in a modern setting. The new take on vampyre mythology was appealing at first, I could almost tolerate Nyx and the religion surrounding her. Then they threw in fallen angels, evil black "tendrils", characters returning from the dead left and right, and if I didn't grow attached to certain characters coupled with the fact that I hate leaving stories half-finished, I might have walked when the introduced the bull... stuff.

Also there's only so much I can keep defending a protagonist who has yet to really accomplish anything or stay interested in a villain who has yet to really accomplish anything.

It's more the writing than the story that makes it hard to read. It seems so simple now since I've read so many books since the last HoN book came out. It's just gotten boring and at this point I'm just reading cause I can't not finish a series.

I don't think this book was good or even really showed a good reason why he did what he did. It seems like the authors had this idea of a dark and evil like character but once they got into it the story was just not as good as what they hinted at. I thought Kalona had killed something precious to Nyx or something
