    I enjoyed the Aldoran Chronicles and am looking forward to the third book. The title, While Tower, caught my attention because I had just got done rereading the Wheel of Time series for the second time. I read them years ago when I was in the navy. Anyways, I had read a couple of short story Prequals for the Wheel of Time and thought The White Tower was another prequal. To my delight I enjoyed a whole new world to explore. I am now reading The Street Rats of Aramoor. Thanks for the great stories and can’t wait for the third book in the Aldoran Chronicles.

    • Michael Wisehart

      Hey Charles,

      Thanks for reaching out. I love Jordan’s work. Along with Lord of the Rings, the Wheel of Time is one of the foundational epic fantasies of our time. To be honest, I do get a lot of readers comparing my work to Jordan’s, mostly in style and scope. I’ve had a few who, like you, were curious if there was a relationship between them.

      I read Wheel of Time years ago, and to be honest did not remember that the tower in Tar Valon was called the White Tower until after I’d published it and had readers asking. If I had remembered that, I might have chosen a different name. I just liked the idea of the (dark side) choosing to wrap themselves in white, hence the Black Watch wearing (white) mantels. 🙂

      I’m working on the next books in both series at present. Lots to come!


      • Stephen Speziale

        I just finished the 3 books in The Aldoran Chronicles. Please tell me there is a fourth book. No ones story is finished.


        • Michael Wisehart

          Hi Stephen,

          Funny you should ask, as I just finished putting the finishing touches on my Wielder Council newsletter, informing my readers of my writing updates, which includes where I’m at on upcoming books. If you haven’t subscribed to the newsletter, you can do so here:

          Also, I have several progress bars built onto the homepage of my website which visually demonstrate what I’m currently working on. Another way to keep up with me, and one that I tend to use the most, when communicating with my readers is following my Facebook page:

          To answer your question – Yes, there will be a fourth book in the Aldoran Chronicles. I also strongly suggest, if you haven’t already, reading the Street Rats of Aramoor series. The characters and storyline in those books play a very heavy role in the Aldoran Chronicles, starting with The Four-Part Key.

          Hope this helps,

    I just finished reading The White Tower. I really enjoyed it! I’m a teacher so I just can’t help but comment on just one thing, sorry. There were several grammatical errors. Probably not many would notice but I had a hard time ignoring them, sorry!! Still plan on writing a good review and reading the next one in the series!

    • Michael Wisehart

      Hi Christine,

      I apologize for the grammatical hiccups you came across. I am currently in the middle of having the book completely re-edited by a team of editors. Which means, I could either wait for months until all of them are finished before re-uploading the new edition, or I could go ahead and upload new material as they work through it. I opted for letting my readers get the new material rather than wait until my copy editor did a final cleaning. It was a tough choice to make. My line editor has made it through the entire script, and my content editor is about 2/3 through. Once he finishes, then I have a copy editor go through and clean all the grammar, spelling, and punctuation, then a final copy editor/proofreader to make doubly sure. A very long and drawn out process. One I wish I had had the budget to complete before first publishing. I do appreciate the review! They are a huge help. If you haven’t read the first two books in the Street Rats of Aramoor series yet, make sure to grab a copy. It’s all about Ayrion. 🙂

  3. Tanya R

    Wow! Your book transported me to a beautifully created, magical new world. I absolutely loved it! I’m looking forward to reading your books to come.

    • Michael Wisehart

      Hi Tanya. Which book did you read: The White Tower or Banished, or Shackled? Whichever it was, I’m glad you enjoyed it! If you haven’t yet already done so, feel free to share that love as a Review on Amazon. They are really helpful. Thanks for reaching out.

      • Tanya

        Hi:) I’ve read The White Tower and Shackled. I’m excited to start Banished, as Ayrion is probably my favorite character so far.
        I will most definitely share on Amazon.
        I think it is awesome that you take the time to respond to your readers comments… thanks!

        • Michael Wisehart

          Everything I do is for my readers. And until the point that it becomes logistically impossible to continue to do so, I will respond to everything I can. I’m glad to have you on board the series. I hope you enjoy Banished. Its sequel, Hurricane, will be released on the 23rd of this month. 😉

        • EWF

          Hey Micheal! I loved the street rats of aramoor series, I’ve read all 5 and now am moving onto the white tower. However, I’m curious on the direction you have taken the sequel series. Should I expect fun, intense but touching fantasy where the characters continue to grow or more of a game of thrones vibe where all the characters you created in the prequel series get murdered/destroyed/corrupted throughout the sequel series? Obviously you can’t mention spoilers, but if it’s the latter I’ll probably avoid the sequels and leave the street rats of aramoor as the positive and fun experience I had with it.

          • Michael Wisehart

            Hi EWF (Tanya),

            The best way for me to answer your question is to say that I personally am not a fan of the grimdark genre. The master series (The Aldoran Chronicles) won’t be exactly like the Street Rats in that it takes place on a much grander scale and with a host of main characters, of which Ayrion is one. You can’t have light without darkness, but I don’t dwell on the darkness as those in the grimdark genre tend toward, where you can’t generally tell the hero from the villain. Some readers enjoy those types of stories.

            The first book in the Aldoran Chronicles is probably the darkest because it introduces the readers to the world of the White Tower. You can start with the Aldoran Chronicles prequel (Shackled) to get an idea of what’s to come. The book is a free download. You can find the link in the back of all the Street Rats books.

            Hope that helps,

  4. Judy A Bridges

    I truly enjoyed your book. Just wish the 2nd book was available.

    • Michael Wisehart

      Hi Judy,

      Thanks for reaching out. I’m so glad you enjoyed the story. I will be publishing the first book in the new offshoot series “Street Rats of Aramoor” early this fall. It’s the story of a thirteen-year-old Ayrion and his battle to survive the treacherous street tribes as a homeless urchin. The first draft of the second book in the Aldoran Chronicles series is complete. I’m also working to create and publish the audiobook version of The White Tower later this Fall. One way to keep up with the writing is to like me on Facebook:

      If you haven’t already done so, and wouldn’t mind helping me out, I’d appreciate it if you could leave a quick review on Amazon. The reviews are very helpful in getting my book seen by others. -Thanks!

  5. Mattix Renko

    I cant tell you how much i enjoyed your book… I can not wait to read the 2nd installment. I was literally hooked within the 1st 10pgs. I love how you have a wide range of characters, giving many points of view to the overall story. For me personally, that is a must to keep my attention. I was so glad that you put in some court life/politics peppered throughout the story. I absolutely love and respect the fully fleshed out magic system you’ve created. You have my utter attention- so excited for Aldoran chronicles #2!

    • Michael Wisehart

      Hi Mattix,

      Thank you for the kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed the story. If you haven’t already done so, and wouldn’t mind helping me out, I’d appreciate it if you could leave a quick review on Amazon. The reviews are very helpful in getting my book seen by others. You could simply copy and paste what you wrote here. -Thanks!

      Have a wonderful week,
