  1. Just checking on book III of the Gauntlet Trilogy. My anticipation is quite piqued. I would at least know if a third book is still in the works.
    David Walden – Perry, GA.

    • Hi David!
      The third book is coming along (finally) after far too long on hiatus. We hope to have it finished soon, if only Toryn would cooperate and stop refusing to do what the author tells him he must.

      Thank you so much!

  2. When is the last book of the gauntlet thrown trilogy coming out? I have really enjoyed the first two.

    • We’re hoping it will be finished by the end of this year as the procrastination-prone author has finally dragged herself back to the laptop and begun to push the story onward. We will keep you updated here!

      Thank you!

  3. Please let me know when the gauntlet thrown 3
    Coming out,. Thanks.

  4. I have the first two Gauntlet books practically memorized, if they were paper book, they’d be so worn as to be falling apart. PLEASE get the third book out! I must know what happens! Brydon must be a descendant of the Kerrick prince who left VenKerrick long ago, does he marry Shevyn and defend the Concurrence with her? Or does Honor demand he return to Eryka? Or will Eryka and Toryn unite Falara and Redol against the evil threatening all?

  5. Is the third book of the Gauntlet Trilogy still happening? This has been my favourite series for quite some time and I can’t wait to read the next one.

  6. Looks like a fun collection. I will check it out.

  7. Hi,

    Love the Gauntlet Series, just wondering if there has been any progress in Book 3 coming to readers everywhere?


  8. is the third book out yet? I’ve been waiting for sooooo long.

  9. We’ve waited so long!! I’ve read and reread the first two. I can’t wait to see how this ends. I love your work so much <3

    • OMG thank you so much! You’ll be pleased to know that I’ve been ACTUALLY working on the third book – it basically had to be rewritten because you guys don’t want trash – AND I’m editing the first two to make them cleaner and less clunky, so I’m hoping to release them all SOON. Stay tuned for news!

  10. Still waiting on the third gauntlet book to come out. Just finished reading the gauntlet thrown, started on the challenge accepted. Do we have an eta on the third book here?

  11. Another year waiting on the third book of the gauntlet trilogy. Any updates as to when it will finally emerge?
