Explore #Maradaine with Marshall Ryan Maresca

DAW author Marshall Ryan Maresca's first Twitter chat about his #Maradaine universe! He has two simultaneous, but separate, series set in the same fantasy city -- A MURDER OF MAGES begins The Maradaine Constabulary series, and THE THORN OF DENTONHILL begins The Novels of Maradaine.


  1. So we asked Marshall -- what can readers expect from each series?
  2. The heroes of Maradaine are everyday people living extraordinary lives, like "street-level" heroes in comics (think Batman and Spiderman). We asked Marshall about his inspiration:
  3. The Thorn of Dentonhill centers on Veranix-- a magic student by day, crime fighter by night -- while A Murder of Mages introduces a detective and constable duo, Satrine and Minox.

    Will the two series (and the two sets of characters) ever intersect?
  4. Marshall also answered some questions about writing secondary-world fantasy.
  5. And, of course, one of the best things about secondary-world fantasy? THE MAPS.
