The second series of the Hope/Despair Series is much less planned out than the first one. That being said, I'm not certain how many books there will be or what the titles will be. However, I do have a thin outline of plot. Eluin, Vioda and Cole move to center stage in finding the cure for the various cursed races. Taitousuu and Vynosa end up playing an integral part of that and Kalio shows up to get in the way.
