I need these three books for research on future projects. Your job is to figure out why on earth I would need such books. (Tee Hee.)

If any of you are wondering what inspired the weather in Morvenia in Chapter 2 of A Prophecy Forgotten, well it was the weather down here in South Florida. Hot, muggy, stifling. Humidity like a sauna. Trust me, I didn't have to imagine it for too long; I just walked outside and started writing.
We shoud be getting a cold front this Friday, so maybe things will cool off...

M. B. Weston’s Author Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 5
Inside Heaven’s Realm
“Times have changed. The tyrant of your Runes is about to rise to power. We seers keep our prophecies secret to keep them safe from him and the one who commands him,” Cassadern told Davian just before the third battle. Though Davian killed the leader of the Third Battle Conspiracy at the end of A Prophecy Forgotten, even he believes that the true dictator predicted by the Runes must be out there biding his time and waiting for the opportune moment. But who is he? Can Elysia, with its government and military leadership nearly destroyed, defeat another attempted coup? And what did Cassadern mean by “the one who commands him”? This should leave readers with something to think about as they await Out of the Shadows, the newest installment of The Elysian Chronicles.
