It turns out I'm just not able to leave well enough alone. Thanks to the success of The Keeper Chronicles, I've been given the chance to go back and tell a few more stories from the world of Tranthaea, due to my own inability to let go, as well as the demand from the readers. That's why I decided to write five short stories that are, as of now, only available on this website. The stories vary in length and genre, but all of them bring you back to the world you fell in love with in the books; some even bring back a favourite character or two! (I'm talking to you, Vytus and Yrving Kindleflash!)
It has been a great deal of fun to return to this world, not only to revisit it but also to explore and discover new places and people. I had the chance to delve into some of the societies that were brushed past in the original trilogy. In these stories we explore some unique cultural aspects of the world, including games, religions, social structures, weapons and technology, and of course, relationships.
I hope you enjoy the stories as much as you enjoyed the trilogy! In these new pages you'll find a mystery, a treasure hunt, and a spy thriller, and that's just scratching the surface! Together, the five stories are just under 53,000 words (52,956, to be exact), about half the length of Playing with Fire. So there's plenty packed in there for you to read and enjoy!
