New dragons, new books

August and September this year were the most hectic months of this year and I am sorry you did not get to hear from me as often. However, I did finish Forbidden Elemental and I successfully survived Comic-Con Africa 2018.

I took a brief hiatus afterwards and, for a short while, the question of "what's next" hovered menacingly over my head. Once I got over the "I finished my trilogy" feeling, I realised there is nothing to worry about, as I still have three more Elemental Short Stories I am working on, one of which I am hoping to release this year still.

Next on my release list is my dystopian fantasy Resilient, which I have already started. This is to give me a small break from the Elemental Saga before I dive back into the world of the Life Planets of the Milky Way. There are five more trilogies on the cards for the Elemental Saga, first of which will most likely play out on the planet Pud.

All in all, you have loads of new books to look forward to. One more new one this year. Two more short stories during the beginning of 2019, the dystopian fantasy, and then onward to the realms of Elves, Witches, Dwarves, and who knows what other species I will introduce you to.

Happy reading!


Forbidden Elemental

This long-awaited conclusion to the Elemental Trilogy is finally complete. It released on the 14th of September at Comic-Con Africa 2018 and I printed just 60 paperbacks for the event, which I sold signed, stamped, and numbered. Those of you who have read the first two books will be familiar with Maia's Soul Dragon Midnight. Some of you will also know the Ice Dragon Shard, or recall the Plains Dragon Silverwing. Well, in Forbidden Elemental, dragons play a much bigger role and it isn't just Maia and the dragon riders of Thala Yll that make use of their strength and cunning. So, if it is dragons you are after, or even adventure, journeys of discovery, battles against all odds, unexpected plot twists, seeing in a new era, and simply a good read, then dive right in.

Dragons, Elves, and Magic. What more could you want from a fantasy trilogy?

Two battles are behind them and now the true war with the Vampyres is about to start. Elveron will succumb unless the Prime Elementals can become as one.

Maia deserts her people to find Blaid, for only as one will they have the power to defeat the Vampyres amassing at Greystone. It is Forbidden for them to be together and yet their connection is all that stands between victory and eternal defeat. With her dragon, Midnight, Maia sets off on a journey that will change the future for everyone.

Lord Longshadow, the Lord Regent, invokes the Rule of Kings and travels to every country of Greater Grildor. He needs the Lords to pledge their armies. Jaik Longshadow rules in his father’s stead and faces the greatest test of his life, while Aaron Nightingale, believing he is the reason Maia left, races across Grildor to find her.

The arrival of winter means the Vampyres will be less active. Amid snow and ice, it is time for Elveron to prepare. But the Vampyres have a different agenda and winter will no longer stop them. As desperation and fear takes hold, Maia understands that to save her people she needs a new plan.

Will Blaid help her? Will she have enough time?

“I fell in love with this world and its characters and became utterly invested in their trials and tribulations. Toni Cox has a wonderfully rich imagination and brings Elveron and the Elves, and Midnight the dragon, to glorious life. Utterly entrancing.” Elaina J. Davidson

Featured author of the month

Today, I want to bring your attention to a very special friend of mine who is not only a wonderful person but also an exceptional fantasy author. You ask "what does Toni read when she isn't writing?" Look no further. Fantasy, adventure, dragons, mystery, history. If ever I was going to recommend a fantasy author to you, this is it.
