Outcast Chronicles

The Outcast Chronicles.  2012

This series follows the fate of a tribe of dispossessed mystics, the T’Enatuath. Vastly outnumbered by mieren (people without magical abilities), the mystics are persecuted because the mieren fear their gifts. This persecution culminates in a bloody pogrom sanctioned by the mier King who lays siege to the Celestial City, last bastion of the T’Enatuath. When the city falls at great cost to both sides, the T’En leader negotiates their surrender and the mystics are exiled from their homeland.

A fantasy-family saga, the characters are linked by blood, love and vows as they struggle with misplaced loyalties, over-riding ambition and hidden secrets which could destroy them. Some make desperate alliances only to suffer betrayal from those they trust, and some discover great personal strength in times of adversity.

    Hello Rowena,

    I’ve become a huge fan of the T’En trilogy by pure accident. I haven’t finished because it is depressingly hard to find The Shadow Kingdom anywhere in the world. I was wondering if the Outcast Chronicles are a precursor to the T’En trilogy.

    btw, are there any places i can purchase The Shadow kingdom.

    • Hi Wai,

      Thanks for the kind words. Do you have books one and two of the T’En trilogy? If you do, you can get book three in the US Imprint via Amazon. It’s called Desperate Alliances. Here’s the link to my web page.


      Yes, The Outcast Chronicles is a prequel, but it goes way back. The Imoshen in the T’En trilogy was a descendant of the Imoshen the First who settled Fair Isle. This is her story.

      I’m having so much fun revisiting this world and the people! (Hope the readers enjoy it as much!).

        Thanks Rowena,

        I finally found a copy of Desperate Alliance thats not over $200. I liked the Australian art covers better but I’m so impatient to read whats inside that I’ll get over it. I can’t wait to get stuck into it. Imoshen is a character I can identify with alot (personality-wise obviously) and so I appreciate the story you’ve written. Good luck with the new series, I hope it gets published soon.

    • Hi Wai,

      $200 for a copy of Desperate Alliances? I would have sent you one for nothing, if I’d only known!

      Am halfway through the clean up of book three of the new series. Have to hand it into the publishers in May. It will be published in July August, September of 2012.

      Tell you what, do you write reviews? If you do, I can send you book one comes out.

      Cheers, R

    Hey Rowena!
    Just dusted off my (massive) copy of ‘The Shadow Kingdom’ to read in the lead up to my wedding… I first read ‘The Last T’En’ when i was in something like year 7 and i’ve read it every few years since. The story seems to have a calming effect on me! Super enjoyed the copy of ‘The Kings Bastard’ you sent and hurried out to buy the next two! I think i forgot to write and tell you how much i loved them and want more! STOKED that you are writing Outcast Chronicles – cannot wait! hope you had a relaxing Easter 🙂

    Definitely excited for the Outcast Chronicles! I absolutely adored KRK (a review for the first book will be posted on The Ranting Dragon website shortly) and found reviewing it a pleasure. I’m certain it will be the same with all your work, as I feel pulled in by the worlds you create.

    Your worlds are so rich, and your characters even richer. A good combination.

    I just finished KRK this morning. I have read like nonstop for about a week! Burned through them and am hungry for more! Thumbs up to intriguing characters and the door wide open to more and more… Thank you! Karyn

    PS: Actually I was hoping for another book already out. What of yours do you recommend? Where should I go for more of the KRK feel in your writing? Karyn

    I cannot find a copy of this trilogy anywhere!! I wail at the scarcity! I’m desperate; where can I buy them?

  16. I am *so* hyped for these books, Rowena! I absolutely can’t wait for them. Hopefully they’ll keep me and my two best friends (I got them hooked on KRK!) sated until KRK2! The cover artwork is absolutely beautiful and the story sounds amazing. Thanks for all your hard work!

    Happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas. 😀

    Is the girl on the cover of Besieged the same girl that is in the Game of Thrones as the Dragon Princess?

    Well it is a pretty good movie based up a really good book series. Which I am sure you have heard of. http://moviecarpet.com/2011/03/28/hbos-game-of-thrones-new-movie-trailers-power-fear-and-blood/ I look forward to reading this series as I enjoyed King Rolen Kin.

    Hello !

    I just finished reading book 1 of KRK and I must say I really loved it ! I was wondering if there was a chance for the trilogy to be published in France ? ‘Cause I would love to share it with the people around me who can’t read english ^^

    I’m eagerly-awaiting for your new trilogy, the covers are really amazing.
    Best wishes,


    • Hi Nymeria (What a beautiful name!)

      I have no idea if the books will come out in France. That is up to my publisher. It would be lovely if they did.

      Thank you for your kinds words about KRK!

      Cheers, Rowena

    Hi Rowena,
    Loved KRK, honestly i read it within two weeks and could not put it down. i’m very excited for the next trilogy in the series. In the mean time i’d like to read some more of your books, if the writing style of KRK is the same in your other series i’m in for a treat. i was wondering though, do I or should I read the Last T’En series before reading the Outcast Chronicles?

    Just an FYI for anyone who pre-orders the Outcast Chronicles on Amazon. They are part of the 4-for-3 promotion. So you can get all 3 books plus another one free+ free shipping since your order will be over $25 if you don’t have prime membership…at least this is all true for those of us in the US. I’m not sure about international.

    Can’t wait to read them Rowena!!! I’m still sitting on the edge of my seat for KRK2 but I think these will be a great summer read.

    Hi Rowena
    I was also wondering since the Outcast Chronicles Takes place before the Last T’En should i read that first or since you wrote Last T’En first should i read that. If you already answered this question sorry just wanted to know.

    Hey, I just wanted to thank you for writting another gripping tale! I havent read the Last Te’n yet but the OC are amazing. I usually dislike books with so many different main characters but all of your characters are so interesting that I never skip them to find out what happened to someone else (something I haven’t done in a long time and In my book this makes you better than GRR Martin!)
    I love the way you handled the T’en romantic relationships as well, including both genders together.
    Anyways, just thought I had to rave about you somewhere as you and Patrick Rothfuss have tied for best author for me.
    Thanks again!
