In 2022, within three months from one another, you will see three series starters in the Renegades Epic hit Amazon’s online store and Kindle Unlimited. If you’re a member of KU, then great! You only need to download the books to your Kindle, read the 300-400-page (Kindle pages) works, then get ready for more action-packed epic and high fantasy works bent into modern-day societies. That’s if you love reading genre-bending works as much as I do writing them.
Anyway, today’s post will give you a rundown on the three series starters in the Renegades Epic, how they entwine, and where you can go from there. Note, that although these books entwine, you DO NOT need to read them all. So if you loved Elementals of Nordica while you weren’t hot on Chronicles of Rondure or the Terrian Chronicles, you can just read your preferred series and still understand everything. However, you will see characters cross over into one another’s series and do so often.
So odds are, you will get to know them.

Wind Wielder: Elementals of Nordica
Before we get started, let’s look at the projected blurb:
A secret censored throughout the modern age…
…A cataclysmic riot leaves the fate of the world hanging by a thread
There are a lot of things Wind Wielder Sion Zona wished he had taken seriously. But the following facts he neglected display his sheer ignorance.
One, an ancient tribe within his Elemental race wiped from the pages of time still exists.
Two, Sion and a band of eight other Elementals are the final descendants from that ancient tribe and hold the key to preventing the masses from falling victim to a one-world government foretold in a banned set of ancient texts.
Three, the global superpower wants nothing more than to destroy Sion and the others before they discover their importance to humanity.
So yeah, there’s no pressure in taking on a raging dictatorship.
Wind Wielder is Book I in Elementals of Nordica, an exciting epic fantasy series set in a modern society. If you are a fan of elemental magic, complex plots, and sword and sorcery with a contemporary twist, Wind Wielder is a MUST READ.
Wind Wielder doesn’t just kick off Elementals of Nordica; it kicks off the Renegades Epic. It features an ensemble cast with not one but NINE chosen characters whose significance sets the World of Eidolon’s fate in motion. However, the significance of these nine characters and beyond them one, in particular, comes to light in Tarja Titan.
Let’s check it out.
Tarja Titan: Terrian Chronicles
Abused and neglected for nearly a decade, Tarja Titan always longed for a home…
…But what she didn’t anticipate was the reception she’d receive upon her return to a world she thought only existed in fiction
For starters, everyone in Elemental Society knows her name. Even if she has no recollection as to why. For another, she’s going to a university to hone a rare supernatural ability, or abilities, she’s never heard of.
Everywhere Tarja goes and everyone she speaks to, new secrets emerge. Like the fact she was murdered as a child and somehow here she is, as alive and well as her new classmates.
And this school has more secrets than Tarja could imagine. It has hidden rooms, corridors, and yeah, resident spirits love hanging out here. And they’re not shy about sharing a few stories. Even if her newly-discovered godbrother is.
Tarja Titan is Book I in both the Tarja Titan Series and the Terrian Chronicles, and Book III in the Renegades Epic. It is the first work in the Elementals Universe to take place on Earth. And READER DISCRETION ADVISED: As you can see from the description, we’re dealing with a darker twist on fantasy than what Elementals of Nordica offers.
If you like strong heroines, elemental magic, complex plots, and young adult fiction, or better yet YA+, given the more mature subject matter, you will fall in love with Tarja Titan.
In chronological order, Tarja Titan comes after both Wind Wielder and Wind Master in Elementals of Nordica, and her work kicks off the Terrian Chronicles. As you probably noted, Tarja Titan isn’t just a series starter in her own series; but the entire Terrian Chronicles Series that also includes Braden Hawk and Liza Fury as central characters in their own books.
If you love a, and this is going to sound weird: series within a series within a series, no, that’s not a typo, then you will love the Terrian Chronicles.
Civil War: Chronicles of Rondure
I was Culled at age five into the Bastille Military, the World of Rondure’s superpower…
…Having lived on-base for thirteen years, military life taught me two things: Mastery of the Smoke Element and to never apologize about using it on enemies
Now that I’m awaiting a sure death sentence for the crime of exposing Bastille’s true crimes, they’ve left me with no choice. When they try to extradite me, I will call upon my Sword of Smoke and escape this predicament, using every combat technique they taught me against them.
Then, I’ll take it upon myself to finish a mission I started years ago; to unplug the People of Bastille and let them know who the real enemy is: their home nation and its Capital City of Paramount.
As I go rogue, every authority figure with money, power, and influence in the Bastille Empire will want me dead. Thanks to them, I’m one of the most powerful Smoke Masters in the World of Rondure. And I’m ready to break the spell the people of my nation have lived under for over a century.
Civil War is yet another installment that features a strong heroine. Mina, who you meet in my Chronicles of Rondure reader magnet takes center stage in this one. Once again, we’re back into epic fantasy bending into science fiction with dystopian and thriller elements, non-stop kinetic action, and stakes so high that Mina’s success or failure will set forth the fate of Rondure forever.
I’ve always said Tarja Titan is a bridge book between Elementals of Nordica and Chronicles of Rondure. As I said, in Tarja Titan, you learn something significant about both Eidolon and Rondure. Civil War, and particularly Mina, will set that significance in motion.
How Much Will Each Series Starter Cost?
If you have Kindle Unlimited, nothing at all! Just read and enjoy. If you don’t have KU, each series starter (which also includes Braden Hawk and Liza Fury in the Terrian Chronicles since they’re for all intents and purposes their own series) will cost 99 cents and they will always cost 99 cents unless Amazon forces me to raise the price.
Book II in each series will cost $1.99 and again, I will never price them higher unless Amazon forces me to raise. Book III in each series will cost $2.99, Book IV $3.99, and Books V and beyond, $4.99. Once again, if Amazon does not force a price increase, you can expect these prices to remain as is.
I don’t do perma-free on Amazon and that’s just because I have prequels for each of the three works as reader magnets on Bookfunnel and StoryOrigin. You can get all three works (Terrian Chronicles prequel available on October 31st, 2021 for free by joining the Readers Republic.
Since they’re free prequels, you’re mainly getting a glorified introduction for Elementals of Nordica, while the Chronicles of Rondure and Braden Hawk prequels is a novelette and novella, respectively. The Elementals of Nordica prequel, Chronicles of the Elementals, makes more sense if you read it AFTER you read Wind Wielder.
So when January 2022 rolls around and if you download Wind Wielder and join the Republic, read Wind Wielder first. Otherwise, you probably won’t know what’s going on in Chronicles of the Elementals because I went out of my way to avoid spoilers.
