While Mark continues to work on a number of short stories, The Heart of Night Saga is his current primary work-in-progress. It is expected to comprise three books, as outlined below. Mark hopes to have this series ready for publication by the end of 2020.

Drawn ever and ever deeper into the machinations of hidden forces, the truth behind the mysterious Ilaroi and the fabulous crystal, Nahmiron, which is so essential to their fantastic powers, will finally be revealed.
But what will be the cost?
