Mead is writing a six-book spin-off series featuring characters in the Vampire Academy series: Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian. "Spin off series takes place in the same universe as Vampire Academy. Same rules, same races. What happens here is that the side characters from Vampire Academy are now the main characters.
