Want to experience what it’s like to duel against fellow pupils of the arcane arts? Swing by The Arena and test your mettle against fellow readers.
I have an announcement to make. After four months of work, I just finished the first draft of my tenth book.
And it’s about Anna Atticus Stone.
Can’t tell you how excited I am. She was an absolute joy to write. Very independent, much more so than Augum was. And she knows who she is and what she wants. I suspect you guys are going to love reading about her.
But Anna had a very tough childhood, and part of the book will deal with that. The rest showcases her first term attending the Academy of Arcane Arts. The book will also reveal what sort of person her vile sister was; Anna’s tumultuous relationship with her parents, who go through a divorce; and it will reveal her ambition, which will eventually result in her becoming the most brilliant warlock of all time.
The title shall be revealed in due course. Expected release date is December of this year.
And don’t worry, the trio shall return. I’ve just always wanted to write a piece of Anna’s story, a woman I’ve grown to know (and you’ve grown to love) as a hundred-year-old matriarch and legendary warlock.
This will tell how she began.
P.S. Some of you caught the hint I threw out on my last post, which showcased Anna’s Academy of Arts schedule. If you missed it, go back and have a peek.
Thank you to all my friends and readers for the amazing support over the years, as well as all the emails and messages. I’m a bit behind in answering but I’ll get there.
Hope you’ve been enjoying Champion’s Wrath :)
I will of course be starting a new book in January, but will not reveal its subject matter until later this year.
Happy holidays :)
In case you’re interested, I’m doing an author AMA (ask me anything) all day today over on reddit about my work and the publishing process. Swing on by and ask me a question :)
Your wait is over! The grand finale to the Fury of a Rising Dragon series, Champion’s Wrath, has finally launched on Kindle.
This book was a huge undertaking and an emotional journey for me, but I am mighty proud of the work—and the entire Fury of a Rising Dragon series as a whole. Loads of surprises coming your way.
Champion’s Wrath is a true epic, clocking in at a whopping 275,000 words—736 paperback pages, maxing out the printer (and my nerves). I gave it my very all every step of the way.
I cannot thank you enough for your amazing support over the years. You have sent me emails by the thousands from all corners of the world, throwing nothing but kindness my way, encouraging this endeavor. Because of you, I have been able to be a full-time author now for over five years (and I’ve spent nine years writing the trio in total—thus far).
And special thanks to the ART. You know who you are, and you are very much appreciated
This has been a difficult year in particular for everyone, and hopefully Augum, Bridget and Leera can give you a little pick-me-up for the holidays. So grab a blanket and get cozy, because the last adventure in the Fury of a Rising Dragon series is about to begin. I proudly reveal Champion’s Wrath, available from Amazon in the following countries:
All my best to you and those you love,
P.S. Additionally, I put the Kindle version of Arcane and Burden’s Edge on sale for only 99 cents (sale ends Dec 8th). Please share if you have people in your circle who you think might enjoy the saga.
P.P.S. I hope you will consider leaving an honest review of Champion’s Wrath on Amazon when you’re done, as every review helps Augum, Bridget and Leera reach new readers. Thank you so much.
P.P.P.S. Bonus photos of Buddha. She pretends like she wants to be part of the fun, but what she really wants are the cookies:
Shipping is a touch slower these days so I thought I’d launch the paperback as soon as it was ready. This way those who are gifting it to others (or themselves ;) will hopefully receive it in time for the holiday season. At 275,000 words, it’s an epic book (and it just managed to squeeze in under the max page count with the printer). Can’t tell you how much fun I had writing it and how excited I am for you to read it!
The Kindle ebook is launching this Friday/Saturday, depending on how long Amazon’s approval process takes. But you’ll get an email from me as soon as it’s live.
You can snag the paperback copy of Champion’s Wrath (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 4) from your country as follows:
Please note some countries may not be able to order the paperback yet due to Covid restrictions, which are beyond my control as they are set by Amazon.
All my best to you and those you love,
Summoning dragons exacts a price. Can they afford to pay it?
Augum, Bridget and Leera are the first to summon dragons in thousands of years. But the ancient spell inflicts an unforeseen side effect—after every casting, it turns them against each other.
As the Canterran army plunders their kingdom, Katrina Von Edgeworth uses her siege engine dragon to crush all resistance. The trio, fledglings at fighting in the air, soon find themselves outmatched.
Now everything hangs by a thread and Augum, Bridget and Leera must somehow carve a path to victory—without gouging each other’s eyes out.
Little do they know the enemy is readying a deadly surprise.

Champion’s Wrath is the grand finale to the Fury of a Rising Dragon series. Also by Sever Bronny: The Arinthian Line series, the epic coming of age adventure that began it all.

I’m so excited to at last be able to share the cover and blurb with you guys. It’s been a long and emotional journey to get to this point, but we’re finally in the home stretch. So get ready to embark on another wondrous adventure with the trio, because it’s just around the corner!
All my best to you and those you love,
P.S. ART: watch out for the email, it’s coming soon ;)
Heyas! How’s everyone doing? I’m going to announce the name of the next book. But before I do, I just wanted to note that I haven’t posted lately because I’ve been taking a break from social media to focus on finishing a major editing round, which was incredibly complex due to the sheer scale of the book.
And the book is epic, and I mean EPIC. I have a feeling you guys will be quite satisfied with how this particular series ends.
Now on to the crux of the post . . .
The name of the last book of the Fury of a Rising Dragon series will be Champion’s Wrath. It is currently on schedule for a December launch. (The image I uploaded is a stock image to whet your appetites.)
I’m also trying to decide on which series to write next: a story of the trio as adults, or a story about Mrs. Stone’s tempestuous youth. What are your thoughts?
Received my copies of Legend from the publisher and so enjoyed seeing all the bright covers together that I thought I’d do a post about it. And I’ve been amazed at how many of you think the series like Harry Potter (that is, you compare it to Harry Potter). I’m deeply honored, especially considering Harry Potter was such a major influence in the first place.
Also, thank you to everyone who participates in the Discussion section of the website.
Lastly, editing of Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 4 is coming along nicely. Can’t wait for you all to read it. Some serious plot twists incoming.
I don’t get to note many triumphs since I only publish once a year, but today was a good day. I wrote 9051 of the most inspired words in my life. The book is at a staggering 261,000 words, so I got some serious editing ahead. But at least I am nearly done. Another few days or so should do it.
Spent half the day sobbing like a child because of the emotional gravity of certain scenes. It’s the end of the epic Fury of a Rising Dragon series, so a lot is happening. I suspect you guys are really going to enjoy it.
Anyway, just wanted to share that. I’m a wreck and look forward to a good night’s rest for a change. I blew past a deadline for this book so it’s been stressing me out. I think I’ll be okay now, though. This is going to be one heck of a finale.
Hope you are all well. More to come in due course.
I’m about 50,000 words from finishing the final book in the Fury of a Rising Dragon series, so I’m taking a break from writing to read over the series. This is something I also did with The Arinthian Line to ensure that all plot points get wrapped up. Don’t worry, this is factored into the writing timeline and we are still on schedule for a December launch. Taking extensive notes and enjoying the sunshine.
(Can anyone spot Buddha in the photo?)
So only two weeks after concluding the audiobook version of The Arinthian Line series with the launch of Legend, I can now proudly declare that the audiobook for Mercy’s Trial (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 3) launches today! That means you’ll be all caught up audiobook-wise, and will be able to listen to the entire adventure up to this point straight through.
Getting to this point has been a long time in coming. Thank you to everyone involved in making this possible.
Oh and I need your help. I don’t have an advance reader team for my audiobooks, thus I am putting in a call to all listeners to please leave a review of my books on audible if you’re able to. It would mean a lot to me. Thank you :)
News on Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 4:
I am now 196,000 words into book 4, the first draft of which is rapidly drawing to a conclusion. It’s a thrill to write this book because the trio are having to mature at a rapid clip, Augum above all. He faces some tough choices ahead, but some exciting ones too. A great battle brews the likes of which has hardly been seen in the kingdom in thousands of years.
Leera is mostly her usual peppy self, but she’s steadily gaining confidence. As for Bridget, she has been struggling with various things, from loathing the idea of taking lives to worrying about ruining her relationship with Olaf due to circumstance.
Lots more to come. Hang in there, and I hope you are keeping safe in these turbulent times. All my best to you and those you love,
It feels strange to announce happy news right now, but perhaps it will bring a small bit of joy to those who have been waiting for this piece of news for many years now.
Thus, at long last, it gives me great honor to announce the audiobook release of LEGEND, the conclusion to the epic fantasy audiobook series The Arinthian Line.
It’s been an incredible journey for this saga. Audiobooks of this length are difficult to produce and distribute, that is why I would like to extend a very special thank you to Stefan Rudnicki, who believed in the project and pushed for it, as well as the rest of the team over at Skyboat Media and Blackstone distribution.
And I would like to thank you, the listener and reader, for believing in my work enough to finish this dream.
P.S. For those of you who will now be finishing the series up, please consider leaving honest reviews on audible for my work. Thank you :)
