★★★★★ “The beginning of a wondrous journey.” (Amazon Reader)
An ancient Gateway between worlds is vulnerable, endangering life on earth. Two teens begin an epic journey to find out why.
Since his mother’s tragic accident, Will Owens has been a loner. And for good reason: he claims to see dark creatures emerging from the forest near his home. Ostracism is a way of life until he meets Morgan Finley, a fencing champion with everything going for her—except a dark family secret.
In pursuit of answers, these unlikely friends enter the forest and discover a magical kingdom where an iron dragon has unleashed a powerful disease. When a young sage reveals their true identities, Will and Morgan join a small but courageous resistance on a quest to save the Fourwinds.
Can friendship and hope stop the swelling tide of destruction from breaching the portal into our world?
Across the Fourwinds is the first book of the Maidstone Chronicles, a page-turning YA fantasy series. If you enjoy escaping to magical worlds, swashbuckling action, and homespun heroes, you’re in for an exciting adventure with this epic tale by Shane Trusz and Darryl Frayne.

“…a thoroughly enjoyable fantasy adventure in the same spirit of the Dragonlance books by Weiss and Hickman. Although the books are geared toward a young adult audience (PG rated story), there’s enough here for adults of all ages to identify with.”
(Edward Lazellari, Author of the Guardians of Aandor series)
