Hey Fredrik--

Thanks! As it stands right now, the books' release order and chronological order line up. Thorn takes place in the middle of Spring in 1215, Murder about a week later, and then Alchemy a month after that at the end of spring. Import will take place about a month after Alchemy, in the height of the summer.

However, the launch of the third series-- The Holver Alley Crew-- next year will throw a wrench in the chronology. It takes place between Murder and Alchemy.

Around the time the third series launches, I'll put up a list on my webpage making clear the release order, the series order and the chronological order, so people can decide the reading order that they feel works best for them.

Thanks! Glad you're enjoying the books!

As for further adventures in Maradaine, I do have a lot of things in the works, and I hope to make formal announcements soon about them.(less)

Hultichia, February 7th!

 Good morning! My novelette, HULTICHIA, is coming out in ebook and paperback in two weeks! So I will be shouting louder about it in the coming days.

HULTICHIA is a standalone story in the Maradaine setting, and like THE MYSTICAL MURDERS OF YIN MARA, takes us to another part of the world, the neighboring nation of Kellirac.

Several of our main characters in the Maradaine Saga have Kelliracqui her

Quotes by Marshall Ryan Maresca  (?)

“Yes, Asti is very cautious and terrified about anything and everyone,” Raych said. “It’s one of his most endearing qualities, that he balances his absurd need to do stupid things with a meticulous care borne out of the overwhelming fear that something might go wrong.”
Marshall Ryan Maresca, The Fenmere Job
