17 Vignettes and Short Stories set in Faith Hunter’s World of Thorn St. Croix

The Rogue Mage story began with the post-apocalyptic novels BLOODRING, SERAPHS, and HOST, when epic battles between Thorn St. Croix and the forces of Darkness were fought. TRIBULATIONS (Rogue Mage Anthology Vol. II) takes place during and after the series timeline. These stories and vignettes, set in Faith Hunter’s Rogue Mage world, are adventures with new characters and old, facing Darkness and an uncertain future.

The relationships between seraphs, kylen, second-unforeseen, mages, seraph-touched, spawn, humans grow deeper, and the battles with dragons and their creatures grow more dangerous. TRIBULATIONS features new short stories from five authors—including Faith Hunter—and vignettes from the Rogue Mage role playing game.

TRIALS and TRIBULATIONS will soon be followed by TRIUMPHANT—the paperback omnibus (both Anthology Volumes I and II in a bound format).

TRIBULATIONS Authors: Faith Hunter, Jean Rabe, Spike Y Jones, Christina Stiles, Lucienne Diver.

Tribulations is the second anthology set in the post-apocalyptic world of Rogue Mage. I previously read and reviewed Trials, the first anthology. I didn’t read the Rogue Mage series itself yet, but look forward to picking it up once I have some spare time.

The collection exists of stories by five authors, and several vignettes from the roleplaying game accompanying the series.

These anthologies really have some quality work. I was shocked by the depth and detail that went into the worldbuilding, the creative cast of characters and the quality writing all authors possessed. I have to admit I liked this anthology even more than the first.
