I'm with Dark on this. Your "Talons of a Dark Heart" series, posted in '09, scored between 4.29 and 4.64. Your new one's getting between 4.35 and 4.66, so I'm really not seeing the downturn here.
Also, the 4.35 is still a new posting. I often find that my new postings get hit with one or two 1s, and depending on how many votes you have at the time, a single 1-bomb can easily drop the rating by 10-20%. Eventually those 1s get cleaned up by sweeps, and the score picks up again.
