Peace Talks Chapter 4 and Year of Dresden Roundup

With the Year of Dresden nearing its halfway point, we figured it was time for a quick retrospective on all the new goodies we’ve released so far. So alongside Chapter 4 of Peace Talks, enjoy a roundup of all the treats you may have missed.

Chapter Four

2020 brings not one but TWO new Dresden novels! We’re three weeks away from the release of Peace Talks, and fewer than 100 days remain for Battle Ground.

Read Chapter Four of Peace Talks! If you missed Chapters OneTwo, and Three, you can catch up on those as well. Preorder both Peace Talks and Battle Ground from a local independent bookstore or online through the store, and come back next Tuesday for the next chapter!
