Words & Histories

One thing that’s great about the internet is the ability to create bonus content for readers who want to know more, and especially with a world as extensive as in the Kanin Chronicles and the Trylle series, there’s so much more I could go on and on about. (Believe me when I say I spent an insane amount of time developing histories and lineages and back stories that were never even referenced in the books).

For those of you that can’t wait for Ice Kissed or even if you haven’t picked up Frostfire yet, here’s some more content from the Kanin Chronicles.

At, there’s the a new pronunciation guide that just posted today. I did make a video a little while (which you can watch: here), but this one is written phonetically, and it covers words and names from the entire trilogy. Don’t worry, though – there’s no spoilers for Ice Kissed or Crystal Kingdom. You can read it: here.

I also wrote brief rundown of the five troll tribes from the Kanin Chronicles and Trylle series. In one of the books in the Kanin Chronicles, Bryn is reading from a Tracker Handbook, and in the back, it contains a quick overview of each of the tribes. It’s so that in case a tracker runs into a member of another tribe while out in the human world following changelings, they know a few things about them and how to interact with them.

So I wrote the overview for the series, but it was too lengthy and unnecessary to include in the actual series. But I still think it might interesting to readers who wanted to know more about the tribes and read an excerpt from the Tracker Handbook. You can read about the tribes: here. (There are spoilers for those who haven’t read the Trylle series yet).

Royalty plays an important roles in the series, and I have facts about the current royalty of the five tribes posted at WoAH. You can read about the Kings and Queens: here. (Again, there are spoilers who haven’t read the Trylle series yet).

For a more intimate look at Frostfire, I have posted character info at Wattpad. It gives a good introduction to the major and some of the minor characters in the series. You read more about the characters: here.
