At this time, Victoria Aveyard has only published the first book in the series. It was her first published novel, introducing her to the New York Times bestsellers list. It was at No. 1 at one point–an enviable spot for any author, especially a debut one.

Universal Pictures bought the rights to Red Queen and are currently working to adapt it for the silver screen. Actress and director Elizabeth Banks is said to be in talks to direct the film. If she takes on the project, it will be her second time directing a movie, ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ being her directorial debut.

The Red Queen series follows Mare Barrow, a girl who’s catapulted into the elitist world of the Silvers–a race gifted with powers. When Mare discovers that she, a Red, also has powers, she’s forced to hide herself in the royal court of the Silvers.

Aveyard is definitely excited to be writing more Red Queen books. She tweeted the following statements to her followers:

We’re super excited to see what she has up her sleeve!
