First of all, I just finished reading the Autumn Republic, and I gotta say: IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to read your Gods of Blood and Powder series to see what comes next!
Second of all, it might sound a kinda insignificant but I was really curious is the name "Hune Dora" in any way inspired by "Hunedoara"? (I'm a Romanian and the name "Hune Dora" just popped up instantly :D )
Honestly, I don't remember. BUT it's a distinct possibility. I use Eastern European names as inspiration quite a lot.
