Re: Lost & Found

Post by keysersoze » Sun Oct 04, 2020 4:27 pm

I'm struggling to find a specific story I read a few months ago, normally I save them but haven't been able to find it and there are so many different sources and I don't remember enough about specific things to help narrow it down via my normal methods, hopefully someone can help me here. This is the little bits I can currently remember:

It was a male POV.
The main character lived with his family in a more wilderness setting and he also had multiple parents (mothers and fathers, who were well known in the world for previous actions) and I believe some siblings as well.
It had magic or something like that and there were some academy or schooling involved.
Towards the end of the story, he built his own home further into the wilderness with one of his mothers, using magic/skills.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

FEL's Tarrin Kael firestaff novels kind of fit that description.

I don't remember what author or name of this book was but the story is a space opera about a princess of a lost technological empire. The story starts out shes in an orphanage and escapes on a trader ship? later on in the story she battles an AI and near the end she has a battle 1v1 with the heir of a crime syndicate or something like that? Read this book years ago and I am looking for the sequel now but can't remember the name of author or book.

soulz. I suspect you're looking for E. William Brown's 'Perilous Waif'', the first of what appeared to be a forthcoming series about Alice Long, a human(?) heir infused with the nanotech of her empire's rulers.

Oh boy, that guy. He's been working on book 2 for ages and it still isnt out yet. That I know of anyway unless he snuck it out recently which I'd be surprised. Haven't read Perilous Waif but I have read his Daniel Black series which is why I kindof follow him.

I keep checking, but I haven't seen any news of Book 2. Too bad because it is an excellent story that I would love to read more from!

Thanks! That's the one. I guess sales were too disappointing for him to write another book.
Edit: Checked his updates looks like he's releasing chapters on patreon and eta on book is 2021.
