  1. Sever, I read KBoards using a proxy after being banned about a year ago for calling my pal “toots” & stuff. I read your post about making a separate FB page for a book/author. You may not believe what I’ve built on KB for this purpose, and had a ton of fun doing it. Sales have increased somewhat from it.

  2. 5 stars for arcane! A bit shorter than I usually like and a might slow but I think its a solid base for book two which I’ll be keeping an eye open for. Goodonya!!

  3. Really liked the first two books! Can’t wait for the third. Story is compelling and well paced and I hated reaching the last page! Would like to see augum come into his own and advance a little more rapidly! Thanks for the vicarious interlude into another realm!

  4. Really enjoyed your first two books and read them both in less than a week, waiting for book three with anticipation. And I agree with Stephen in hoping Augum comes into his own and gets all his stripes soon :-)

    • Don’t know how I missed this comment. I usually respond to everything. My apologies, Edwina. Thank you for reading. One of Augum’s challenges is fighting beyond his strength (something detailed in book 4). But his rewards … well, you’ll get to see for yourself :)

  5. I am a disabled veteran and am constantly looking for ways to entertain myself. I lost both legs to an iad, my life now is one disapontment after another, after reading hundreds of books it becomes monotonous. I read all four books in this series in three days, a perpetual smile plastered to my face, happiness is priceless and I gladly give both arms to live in this moment forever. You provided a much needed break from reality, one in which I experienced hope, love, bravery, and triumph for the first time in many years, I dare say it rejuvenated a new will to live long lost. For that I am forever grateful Sir Bronny. I would love to know if you had an estimate for your next release.

    • Hello Ross. Your letter made its mark. I don’t know what to say really, except … thank you. It meant a lot to me. I’m going to print it out and keep it nearby, so that if I ever start feeling lazy or tired about writing, I’ll read it and find the strength to write on, knowing the story makes a difference.

      I am working on book 5 now. I hope to have it done and released within four to five months, give or take. But I’ve got nothing to distract me really–I’ll be working on it almost daily. Nose to the grindstone, that kind of thing.

      I’ll have you in my thoughts. Oh and please email me at
      severbronny@gmail.com sometime.

  6. I bought the first book for my 12 year old son and he tore though it in a day. I promptly ordered the next 3 in the series. He absolutely loves this series. I cannot wait to read it myself.

  7. Just when I thought I wouldn’t find another “school of magic” themed book that wasn’t a blatant rip-off of a certain boy wizard….along comes Arcane. In this, you have taken a commonly-used subject (special kid gets accepted to wizard school!) and made it decidedly UNcommon. I love the unique way you imagine your magic–excuse me, arcanery. I love the detailed descriptions of the TEACHING we are seeing. In many magic-school books, how the magic is actually taught and learned is glossed over. You make it so much more realistic when we see Augum, Bridget, and Leera struggling to understand and apply concepts. And then you weave in a great adventure along the way. Thank you for this wonderful breath of fresh air. I am currently in the midst of Valor and enjoying the story immensely.

      • Yes, I just finished Clash, and it was amazing. My heart was actually pounding in nervous anticipation as Augum went up against Robin at the end. I LOVED the labyrinth and the competition. So exciting and it really drew me in. I’m glad I picked these up when I did- now I don’t have to wait as long for the (I’m sure it will be) epic conclusion! Keep up the good work!

  8. Well, here it is, nearly mid-January. When will this interminable wait be over?!? But, seriously, I love your series so much I will actually read the next book out of order on my book list! You have a very clever imagination and a great talent. Congratulations on this great success.

    • Funny that you mention the date, because Legend launches tomorrow :)

      I hope you reconsider reading the book out-of-order; don’t want you to miss certain interesting plot twists that line up a certain way. But it’s your call :)

      Thank you for reading and enjoying, Kim!

  9. Sever,
    My husband and I recently (September 2016) took in 3 siblings as foster children. The oldest, who is 11 loves to read, the younger two, 9 and 7, not as much. I am an avid reader, and was hoping to inspire them to read. I stumbled across your book, Arcane, on Amazon. We started reading it. A chapter or two each night (as long as I can stay awake to read out loud!). They LOVED it, and beg for me to keep reading. After finishing Arcane, I offered to look for something different, but they wanted to proceed with the series. This past weekend we finished Riven, and launched directly into Valor. We are looking forward to the Augum’s adventures each evening. Thank you so much for writing such a delightful and exciting series. Hopefully, your books will inspire their imaginations and create three life-long readers. It is wonderful to read something to them that we are all four engaged in. Definitely a series that reaches out across the generations and appeals to all of us!

    • This is very touching, Lisa, I’m kind of speechless. It’s wonderful to hear from someone who took in three kids. Major kudos to you and your hubby. And how wonderful to get them hooked on books! What adventures await them in that magical world of the imagination! I am honored to play a part, and cannot wait to hear all about what they think of the trouble the trio get into in Valor, Clash and Legend :)

      Please keep me posted (feel free to email me via the contact page too).

      All my best to you and your family,

      Sever

  10. Sever I have read the first four books and am in progress of reading the fifth, and I was wondering if you would ever see the series becoming a film or set of films?

    • Hello Alfie :)

      I wrote them with a movie franchise in mind in the first place, without the expectation of it ever actually becoming one as it’s highly unlikely in this business a book gets turned into a movie. That said, in my mind’s eye Mrs. Stone I already cast Judi Dench as Anna Atticus Stone :)

      • I’m very flattered, thank you, Alfie :) And it would certainly be a dream come true for me too, hehe :) but I’m more than happy simply being able to make a living from writing. After all, I get to live in the trio’s world for my day job! :D
