Prodigy of Thunder (Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone, book 1) released!

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09MY84S3W

A family of warlocks . . . torn by an ancient secret.

Fourteen-year-old Anna Atticus Stone is a prodigy.
A warlock prodigy.

The youngest to ever wield lightning, Anna burns with ambition, dreaming of attending the prestigious Academy of Arcane Arts.

But her life’s a mess.

She’s friendless, her father barely lets her out of the house, and her older sister keeps knocking her teeth out.

And her parents fight. Constantly. Mostly over her father illegally training the sisters in the old way, as it’s forbidden to learn so far ahead.

Now Anna readies to take the academy entrance trials. A pass will mean friends, warlock tournaments, and exploring a thousand-year-old academy. Typical teenage warlock stuff.

Except her sister is bent on sabotaging her. And there’s a reason for that sabotage—and for the illegal training . . . their father carries a dangerous secret.

A secret for only one daughter.

And Anna is about to find out what her sister is willing to do to claim it.


Personal thoughts from the author:

The day has finally come! After a long year of writing and editing Anna’s story, Prodigy of Thunder has launched. I cannot wait for you to experience the beginning of her journey. You have been requesting her story ever since reading about her in Arcane (The Arinthian Line, book 1). It gives me great honor to deliver on that request.

It was a tricky endeavor for me to write a book about an already established character. For that challenge, I searched deep into who Anna was whilst asking myself what sorts of things would she have gone through as a child and as a teenager. Writing the answers into the book was immensely enjoyable for me, even though Anna went through serious trials.

Anna’s strengths come from her independence, her compassion, and her ambition. But she has always suffered from loneliness too. This story partly aims to explain why and how that loneliness took root. I find her to be a complicated soul with an epic story, one I look forward to fleshing out in subsequent books.

Note that both the paperback and ebook versions have a map and Anna’s full academy class schedule. Also, I hope you’ll consider sharing the launch on social media (or even sharing my Facebook post about it).

Thank you all for your amazing support over the years, and feel free to email me your thoughts when you’re done reading.

Enjoy the book!

All my best to you and those you love,

-Sever
P.S. Extra special thanks to the ART team, as well as the wonderful souls who participate on this website. You know who you are :)

You know her name . . .

I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally reveal the name of the book about Anna Atticus Stone’s origin story. In Prodigy of Thunder (Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone, book 1), I explore Anna’s tumultuous relationship with her family, a family slowly destroyed by an ancient secret. There will be adventure, exploration of the Academy of Arcane Arts’s Shoptown, and plenty of arcanery. Above all, you will get to know Anna.

And she is ambitious and brave and reckless and kind and empathic and brilliant.

I’m on schedule to launch early December. Further, I’d like to proudly announce I signed a three-book audiobook deal with Podium. The book is currently in the casting phase, and you will not have to wait long for it to launch (three months or so?).

Hope you’ve been well,

Sever
P.S. Anyone will be able to read this saga, even if they have not read The Arinthian Line or Fury of a Rising Dragon, making it safe to give as a holiday gift.

News + audiobook of Champion’s Wrath

In other news, the book on Anna Atticus Stone is in the final stages of editing and on schedule for an early December launch. I will announce the name of the book, the series, and reveal the cover and blurb in due course.

Thank you for your amazing support and patience, and I cannot wait for you to read about Anna.

An announcement about the next book

Legendary warlock Anna Atticus Stone walking up the stairs at the Academy of Arcane Arts

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.

Paperback launch notice: Champion’s Wrath (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 4)

Heyas :)

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:

USA

Canada

UK

Japan

Italy

Spain

France

Germany

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,

✨Champion’s Wrath Cover + Blurb Reveal✨

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,

—Sever
P.S. ART: watch out for the email, it’s coming soon ;)

Announcing the name of the book that will conclude the epic fantasy “Fury of a Rising Dragon” series

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?

Audiobook of Mercy’s Trial (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 3) launches today! #fantasy #audiobook #series

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,

—Sever Bronny

At long last, the epic fantasy audiobook LEGEND launches, concluding The Arinthian Line series

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.

https://www.amazon.com/Legend-Arinthian-Line-Book-5/dp/B081VRFDF5

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.

Happy listening,

—Sever
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 :)

Clash (The Arinthian Line, book 4) audiobook is now out!

Warlocks Augum, Bridget and Leera are finally able to relax after a grueling ordeal in Bahbell. Now their fugitive mentor has a dangerous new quest—sneak into an ancient library and research an artifact that could devastate the Legion.

Their substitute mentor Leopold Harvus, however, is an obsessive and petty man with a distaste for anything untoward, particularly Augum and Leera’s affections for each other. As their studies suffer from his meddling, one brazen act of rebellion plunges the trio and their quest into mortal peril, for Harvus quickly proves he is not a man to be trifled with.

NARRATED BY GRAMMY WINNER STEFAN RUDNICKI

* * *

Many of you have been asking for this, saying it’s one of your favorite books to read. Thus it brings me great pleasure to announce the audiobook launch of Clash!

Note that it is exclusive to Audible for the first 90 days, and thereafter will be available on other platforms, as will the hard copy.

Happy listening and happy holidays to you all,

Sever

P.S. Legend audiobook will be coming out March 31st, 2020.
