Blue Blood Book Seven to be last of this “Lifecycle”

Melissa dela Cruz's publisher, Disney-Hyperion has announced that the seventh Blue blood novel will be the  and final  of this "lifecycle". This unnamed book will be published Fall 2012.  

This is what Melissa had to say in her newsletter:

As I was writing the fifth book, I realized that the first cycle would be seven books, and that I wanted to mark it with a grand announcement of the finale. However, I couldn't share the news since at that time; I still hadn't even sold the books to my publisher yet.  

After the seventh novel is published, a new chapter with new characters (and some old ones!) will begin a new Blue Bloods series. I don't know how many will be in the second series yet, but will let you know when I do.

When I conceived of Blue Bloods back in the day (of yonder) I thought I'd do three mini-trilogies, but as I began to write the books, I decided I didn't want to do a prequel trilogy like I had planned, (since most prequels kind of suck since you already know how it ends right?) and so I incorporated my prequel trilogy into the "forward" stories and well… that is a long winded explanation to say: SEVEN IS THE MAGIC NUMBER. And after seven, we will start a new story, which I've already sketched in my head and I'm already so so so excited about it.

Which characters will appear in the second series? What will happen? Ack! So exciting! Yet I don't want to talk about it right now. I'm enough of a big mouth already. But if you come to an event, I will probably tell you since I can't help myself.

Here is a synopsis of Lost if Time –

Maybe Schuyler was crazy to think it would last, that any of it—their love, their joy together would hold, given the darkness that had been part of their union from the beginning—and later she would wish she had enjoyed it more, that she had spent less time poring through books, less time at the library alone, less time removing his arms from her waist, telling him to wait, or missing dinner so that she could go over the papers again and again, she would wish for one more night spent in a roadside café, holding hands under the table, one more night when they would sit side by side in bed, reading, as he rested a hand on her knee.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
