Loyalty is a bond that spans worlds. Deceit among twinborn is doubly deadly.
Soria Coinblade has a simple task in mind: to find the twin of the lover she has been denied in the other world. What she finds instead is a path beset by pirates and mercenaries. Trained in the mystical arts of two worlds, she won't back down from any challenge. But her troubles don't end when she finally chases down the love of her life. The two of them embark on a new quest with implications for the world they both call their second home.
Kyrus is stranded on a sparsely populated island. When he tries to use magic to find his way back home, he commits the gravest error in the history of magic. With the balance of power upset in two worlds, will Kyrus have caused an empire's downfall, or become its savior?
Aethersmith is the second book of Twinborn Chronicles: Awakening. For fans of epic fantasy two aren't looking to start another unfinished series, the Twinborn Chronicles provides multiple new worlds to explore and all the closure you've long been denied.
About the Author
I am a creator of worlds and a destroyer of words. As a fantasy writer, my works range from traditional epics to futuristic fantasy with starships. I have worked as an unpaid Little League pitcher, a cashier, a student library aide, a factory grunt, a cubicle drone, and an engineer--there is some overlap in the last two.
Through it all, though, I was always a storyteller. Eventually I started writing books based on the stray stories in my head, and people kept telling me to write more of them. Now, that's all I do for a living.
I enjoy strategy, worldbuilding, and the fantasy author's privilege to make up words. I am a gamer, a joker, and a thinker of sideways thoughts. But I don't dance, can't sing, and my best artistic efforts fall short of your average notebook doodle. When you read my books, you are seeing me at my best.
My ultimate goal is to be both clever and right at the same time. I have it on good authority that I have yet to achieve it.

Great second book from the Twinborn Trilogy Aethersmith is a great second book from the trilogy continuing all the intrigue from Firehurler. The reader gets to explore more of both worlds as the story weaves itself through new lands in each world. As I had hoped, more characters are revealed to be twins. Some of the twins are new characters but others are already familiar. There is alway the question, Who else might be a twin? As with Firehurler, the detail of Aethersmith envelopes the reader in two worlds that seem very real, and characters that seem more like friends. Very well written. I couldn't stop reading. I can't wait for more!
