From the Author:
After I finished writing The Wardstone Trilogy, I still had several months to go before I would be released from prison. I did not want to lapse in my religious routine of penning three thousand words a day, so I didn’t. Book One – Through the Wildwood, is a fun and intense book that introduces a few of the series main characters. I have over a thousand pages worth of Vanx Malic and his curious group of companions sitting here in longhand. I will be publishing them in eBook format, about two hundred fifty pages at a time, over the next year and a half. In lieu of further sales pitching, I invite you to click the “Look Inside” icon on the books fantastic cover image and start reading.
Enjoy the journey, M. R. Mathias
The author keeps on surprising me with creative plot twists, compelling new characters and strong dialogue. It’s filled with vivid imagery and action/drama rich writing that really sets a thrilling tone throughout the novel. From beginning to end I had a fun time reading and really couldn’t have put this book down even if I wanted to. — PipLou TOP 1000 AMAZON REVIEWER
“The author’s style is individual, but it has the flavor of a Tolkien novel, or possibly Robert Jordan. I detected a great amount of affection in his deliverance of the characters, and their progress throughout the story was handled well. I must say that Vanx is quite a likeable rogue, and the way that the story begins certainly grabs the reader, pulling them into the story whether they like it, or not.” — Kindle Review
“You’ve (Mathias) already achieved much, much more than so many people who like to think of themselves as writers.” — @Gollancz The Deputy Publishing Director of SF, Fantasy & Horror list of the Orion Publishing Group
The magic Mathias weaves is evident here and re-reading book one, after completing the series only demonstrates how meticulously he sets his stage, outlines in his characters, the manner in which the entire series will play out… keeps us eager to continue. He is a very skilled fantasy writer – be sure to follow the entire series. Some readers may have difficulty with the names at first, but remember this is fantasy and no easy common name would be suitable. Mathias knows exactly how to weave a spell that entraps us from book to book. — Grady Harp, Hall of Fame, Vine Voice Reviewer
