Ignite: Tales of the Forest War begins a new series that goes back hundreds of years before the events of the Nature Walker Trilogy to the Forest War, a pivotal point in the history of Orana. The second and concluding volume in that series, Scorch, launched in March of 2020. All of the Orana Chronicles are currently available to read for free via Kindle Unlimited.
