Hey folks, I’m happy to announce I’ve just signed a new contract with Tantor to produce the final 3 Magebreakers audiobooks. It’s early in the process so I don’t have details on release dates or narrator or anything, but I’ll keep you posted as things move along.
The question I get asked the most by far is whether or not those last 3 audiobooks are ever coming out, and until now I’ve only been able to say “Maybe someday”, so the fact that this is happening is pretty dang satisfying. Those of you who have been waiting don’t have to wait too much longer!
The Mage War is out in paperback now, if you prefer a physical copy. Grab it here! Now’s a great time to get all 5 books and have the complete series sitting on your shelf looking nice, nudge nudge.
The Mage War is out now on Amazon, grab it here! This is the big finish, the explosive finale! Hope you like it! And if you want to support me further, you can sign up for my Patreon here, and get this book free as an ebook, as well as any I release from here out, plus more exclusive benefits!
Here’s the blurb:
The nations of the Continent are on the verge of declaring war with Audland over the actions of the man who would be the next Mage Emperor, and only Tane, Kadka, Indree, and Tinga know the truth about Endo Stooke’s plot. The problem is, they’re on the run, blamed for the attempted assassination of the Belgrian Kaiser. And the non-magical forces gathering off Audland’s coast are the perfect target for the terrible spell Endo has created—a spell that saps the life out of anyone without magic. A spell that won’t be sated by foreign armies alone, if it reaches Audish shores.
With few friends to count on, fewer resources, and time quickly running out, the Magebreakers have no choice but to sneak back into their homeland as fugitives in the hopes of stopping Endo before he plunges the world into the next Mage War.
Here’s some news on the next book: the current storylines in Magebreakers are all coming to a thrilling conclusion in The Mage War! I may go back to Tane and Kadka’s world for more, but if so, it’ll be all-new adventures, and I’ve got some other projects I’m excited to work on as well. But for now I’m well into working on book 5, and I apologize for the lack of information. Real life has been getting in the way.
To that end, I have instated a plan to allow me to focus more on writing and get more books out faster. I believe they call it Patreon. The hope is to make things a bit more stable re: this writing gig, and also provide supporters with some early access to drafts, chapters of my works in progress, the occasional short story, and whatever else strikes my fancy. The first chapter of The Mage War is already up there for patrons, so if you’re interested, check it out! Here’s the link again! And if not, that’s cool too! If you’re reading this at all it probably means you’ve already supported me in some way, so I appreciate you either way.
In any case, keep your eyes peeled for The Mage War in the coming months, and happy reading!
The Spirit Siphon is now available in paperback format! If you’ve been waiting for that physical copy to read it, grab it here.
It’s been a rough year with a bunch of delays on the book, but at last I can happily say that the fourth Magebreakers novel is out! The Spirit Siphon is available now on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, or various other Amazons of your choice. I hope everyone enjoys Tane and Kadka’s continued adventures!
Here’s the blurb:
When an airship crashes under mysterious circumstances, the Magebreakers find themselves embroiled in an investigation that takes them across the Audish Channel to foreign shores. In Belgrier, many blame Audish sabotage for the accident, and for the death of the influential nobleman on board—a dear friend of the Belgrian Kaiser. And if Tane and Kadka can’t prove otherwise, it could become a diplomatic catastrophe.
But the suspicion of a government that views all Audlanders as dangerous pro-magical radicals isn’t the Magebreakers’ greatest concern. Nor is the constant obstruction of the Belgrian Guardswoman assigned to supervise them. It’s the possibility that an outside hand is influencing events—an enemy they’ve encountered before.
And if the would-be emperor gets his way, it’s going to mean war.
I’m pretty behind on this, but The Dragon Machine is available now! Grab it in paperback or ebook formats on Amazon!
Here’s the blurb:
A missing girl leads the Magebreakers into a deadly race, with her life as the prize.
Thaless is still reeling from the actions of the assassin known as the Emperor’s Mask, and in the aftermath, believers in magical superiority have been greatly emboldened. When a goblin girl named Tinga Vreeg goes missing, it seems like a tragic consequence of the atmosphere of hostility and anger toward the non-magical. But when Tane and Kadka investigate, they find a much deeper mystery. Tinga isn’t the only one missing—and she might have been on the trail of something important herself.
Maybe something that can explain the impossible strength and speed of the killers trying to track her down. Or the silver fire burning in their eyes.
But one thing is certain: if Tane and Kadka don’t find her first, someone is going to make sure that Tinga never tells anyone what she knows.

Here’s a quick synopsis:
The world of man has fallen. Their armies are routed, their cities razed, their holy places desecrated. The greatest heroes of mankind have been defeated, one by one, seeking the architect of this destruction. At the top of a mountain at the end of the world, one man continues their quest.
Is he the last hero of humanity?
Or is he merely the last to die?
The second Magebreakers book, The Emperor’s Mask, is available now on Amazon! Grab it here!
Here’s a quick blurb if you’re on the fence:
A killer walks among the rich and powerful. Who can the Magebreakers trust?
Someone is killing the non-magical members of Senate houses–those who might one day be named Protector of the Realm. And that same someone is leaving behind messages for the Magebreakers beside symbols of the shadowy organization known as the Knights of the Emperor. Under suspicion from the constabulary, Tane and Kadka are drawn into the investigation to prove their innocence.
What they find is that Audish politics are as dangerous as any Porthaven back-alley. Suddenly, they’re surrounded by the most powerful figures in the Protectorate, every one with a different agenda. Telling allies from enemies has never been harder, but Tane and Kadka will have to find someone to trust if they’re going to bring the killer to justice.
Their lives–and the future of the Protectorate–depend on it.
The next Magebreakers novel is coming along quickly, and should be ready near the end of the year. For now, enjoy the first few chapters! And if you like it, sign up here to receive an email when it’s released.
