After I finished the Grimoire Saga, I wasn’t quite ready to leave Ourea behind yet. Readers clamored for more, so I began writing a spin-off series called The Ourean Chronicles. For readers of the Grimoire Saga, it’s another chance to get to know three of the characters. The Misanthrope: Stone’s Story (Ourean Chronicles #1) is a twisted tale about Stone, the isen that trained Kara.
Writing about Stone, a sociopath, turned out to be a challenge for me. But I went for it, and I hope you enjoy a deeper look at this complex character.
Terric is a curious loner hellbent on reading his master’s forbidden books. When one heist goes wrong, Terric abandons his old life and runs for freedom—only to fall prey to a ruthless man named Niccoli.
Niccoli is an isen—a creature of magic from the hidden world of Ourea—and he awakens within Terric an unimaginable gift. But this gift comes with a catch. Suddenly in control of newfound power he is forbidden to freely use, Terric realizes too late he simply traded one master for another.
In Ourea, a world dominated by the gifted, few isen dare defy their masters. Until now.
