AQATDR was the teaser-title for the third volume of the Alexandra Quick series, announced 9 June 2009 (1). The title was suspected to follow the pattern of the first two novels, reading Alexandra Quick and the [D. R.], and indeed, the official title was announced on 26 November `09: Alexandra Quick and the Deathly Regiment.

Deathly Regiment is a sequel to Alexandra Quick and the Lands Below and will take place between the Summer of 2009 and June of 2010, during Alex's eighth-grade year, which transpires concurrently with the events of Hogwarts Houses Divided. Whether DR and HHD are meant to take place in the same future timeline, or in universes alternate to one another, is as yet unknown.

On New Year's Eve of '09, a special preview of the first chapter was made available on LiveJournal. The author expected the completed novel to run longer than Alexandra Quick and the Thorn Circle, but shorter than Lands Below. A completed rough draft of the novel was completed by 15 February `10, running just longer than 200,000 words ~ 38,473 words longer than Thorn Circle, and 24,245 words shorter than Lands Below.

A rough draft of the book's plot summary was announced on 18 February `10, along with a banner designed by JCCollier. On the same day, a release date of March `10 was also announced, and the first chapter – "The WODAMND Act" – was published on Fanfiction.net on 28 February `10.
