Penman's Plantagenet books.

I have read the original trilogy and am now reading "the Lionheart."Those books are very interesting and I am enjoying the way Penman sets up each scene and each character she brings onto a page.
Penman's views of Henry II's life are slightly different from Plaidy, there's no Alys Capet subplot, but once I got past that I really swallowed the trilogy in a few days.
I was a little disappointed to discover that "Lionheart" is only half of Richard's story. Does anyone know when the second book is coming out?
What did Pemberlians think of those books? Was anyone else surprised by Penman's take on the Plantagenets?
