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!
