With any series, there’s a whole lot of world-building. People, places, quaint local customs, names for things that don’t exist anywhere else but on the page.

Some of my early readers, a few of whom weren’t familiar with the genre and the sheer deluge of “stuff” it entails, asked me for a list of character names with an outline of who they were. As I was making it, I also noted down the aforementioned places and things. It came to . . . quite a lot, actually.

In case my publishers don’t oblige me with a glossary section in the final/future editions of the books, I’ve gathered it all here, on the following pages. You might find it interesting.

Further content may appear here later.

PS I’ve done my best to avoid spoilers, but enter at your own risk!
