Thanks for visiting my Goodreads page! As a new indie author, I enjoy interacting with the Goodreads community. My first book is Across the Fourwinds, which I co-authored with Shane Trusz.

Important Update to the Maidstone Chronicles trilogy

The Maidstone Chronicles Trilogy



Book 3 of the Maidstone Chronicles, Into the Maidstone , launched on June 21, 2020.



If you’re familiar with the first two books in the Maidstone Chronicles trilogy (which we highly recommend before reading Book 3), you will see that we’ve renamed the “Black Dragon” the “Iron Dragon” and changed the elixir formerly known as “Black” to “Phyriad” (pronounced FEAR-ee-ad —for good reasons!).

I posed this question because some people have started with Book 2, Beyond the Hollowtangle.
