There's always more to see in Rockshore. The Tides of Change Compilation is the first of several books set in the Sea-Side City universe. The series follows and will follow a vast array of unique and diverse characters, through different challenges in their lives.


Each story is set in the same city and several of the storylines are intricately linked. Some characters crossover into other character's stories and others are separate.

But, certain events and incidents will affect the entire city.
