H.W. Greenwood By HWGreenwood Completed

The Free Tribes, a throng of powerful beasts, clans, and small villages have encircled Caastigen, the capital of Sindara. At the beginning of this unnatural war, five strangers awake in an alley with no visual memories and a splintered collection of knowledge: Alisandra, a musically-talented half-elf, Sir Calvorn, a wretched knight clinging to his honor, Bromli, a dwarf caught up in his own viewpoint and contraptions, and Vadik a half-orc hell-bent on dolling out justice. 

A secretive elf named Tyriel infers that greater forces are at work and asks for their help, so the group sets out to retrieve an ancient relic, the Trident of Fate, which contains the power to see the past, present, and future. This fragmented weapon may be the key to ending the war and returning their memories, but as their own pasts unfold, will they discover who they can trust, or will they collide and destroy each other before the real evil rises.

"as much as I 'have' writing it"?  Or maybe "had as much fun reading it as I've had writing it"?  Sorry, don't mean to nitpick, but you don't want a little typo in the very first paragraph giving people the wrong impression about your undoubtedly excellent book.

Congratulations on the "word smith" award in Phoenix Awards.
I like that you did it that way. I'm definitely someone who likes imagining characters, even though I like casts to see what writers are picturing.
Thank you so much 😂 if I see another Chris Hemsworth or Jennifer Lawrence I'll tear my hair out

I like how the four rivers come and lead to the mountains. It gives a sense of unity and connectedness like the old saying "all roads lead to Rome". Intentional or not, it's pretty cool.
You know it's gonna be hard core fantasy when there's a detailed map
