Exclusive Cover Reveal: Tales of Ioth by D.P. Woolliscroft

Tales of Ioth by D.P. Woolliscroft

One series that has grown closer to my heart with each and every successive volume, one better than the last, is D.P. Woolliscroft’s Wildfire Cycle. A sprawling, epic tale of mysterious magics and political intrigue, with a cast of incredibly crafted characters, and both exciting and heartbreaking moments (giving you an evil side-eye, Woolliscroft), it’s too easy to lose yourself in the world the author delivers us to.

We were able to get brilliant, rooted insights into the ongoings of Kingshold with 2018’s Tales of Kingshold, and today I am thrilled to share with you all the gorgeous cover of Tales of Ioth, a collection of shorter stories and even a novella to immerse us further in The Jeweled Continent. I can’t tell you how excited I am dig into these in-between tales!

If you haven’t yet picked up the published books in this series, I highly recommend you do. You can also see my reviews of Kingshold, Tales of Kingshold, and Ioth, City of Lights right here on Whispers & Wonder.

Tales of Ioth will be available April 28, 2020!

Without further ado, may I present…
Tales of Ioth

Isn’t it just absolutely beautiful?!


The Book

Tales of Ioth by D.P. Woolliscroft

Ioth was gone. Kingshold had fallen.
But we could not give up.

I am Mareth, once Lord Protector of Kingshold, and these are the stories of what happened after the fall, when everyone was at their lowest ebb. These are the stories of how the battle against Llewdon moved from the Jeweled Continent to Alfaria – the Wild Continent.
The next installment in the exciting Wildfire Cycle. Tales of Ioth, Book 2.5 of the Wildfire Cycle is essential reading, including a novella in five parts and four other short stories.

Dudenas (Novella) – Picking up immediately from the end of Ioth, City of Lights. The heroes of Kingshold have failed and Llewdon has seemingly won.
But Neenahwi rallies the group that is traumatized by the loss of their friends and sets a new destination for their fight back – the Wild Continent. Allied with the dwarfs and travelling by giant purple worm, they set out on a harrowing journey under the ocean and through the dark of the Dudenas to the birth place of Neenahwi and Motega.

The Beginning of Things – The Wild Continent has it’s own creation story, and it all began with a tree. This is the story of the mother-tree, the animals that sprang from her fruit, and the people they created.

Profit and Plain Sailing – Vin Kolsen has a ship, a loyal(ish) crew and success raiding Pyrfew ships off the coast of the Wild Continent. But why should that be enough when there is greater opportunity out there. If only there was a pirate king to bring together the North Sea Corsairs.

The Wanderer – What will the visitors in green and gold to Yamaagh’s clan shortly after they discover the destruction of their hated enemies, the wolfclaw, mean for his destiny of becoming the “the strongest living warrior of the tigereye”? And who is the man without a name setting traps for those who have invaded his home?

The Further Adventures of Old Man and His Pyxie – Jyuth is retired. He is done with magic and just wants to spend his remaining days indulging in those ‘hobbes’ he has been neglecting for the past few centuries. An old man just wants to have fun, but can he really walk away from everything?

The Author

D.P. Woolliscroft

D.P. Woolliscroft was born in Nottingham, England but has spent much of the past twenty years living in the US. Influenced by such a wide array of writers as Terry Pratchett, Michael J. Sullivan, Steven Erikson and Joe Abercrombie, his writing has combined real world issues such as inequality, religion and colonialism as a backdrop to dryly humorous character driven stories. His debut novel, Kingshold, introduced the novel concept of a fantasy realm transitioning to a democracy via a magically controlled election. Kingshold was the first novel in the Wildfire Cycle, a series of novels and collections of shorter stories that combine to tell one story. The other books in the Wildfire Cycle are Tales of Kingshold and Ioth, City of Lights. His next book, 2.5 of the Wildfire CycleTales of Ioth, will be released in early 2020.
