Tales of the Trinity and the One Volume 1, aka Book 11 RELEASED!

Finally, the next entry in the series is released! Book 11 is under the banner of ‘Tales of the Trinity and the One’, Volume 1 of it, but is still a sequel to Amethyst Shards. It’s under a different banner because these next volumes are more collections of various short stories that are somewhat connected rather than being a coherent, epic narrative.

Dien Character Development Spotlight

Dien Character Development Spotlight
