Here is the suggested reading order for The Accidental Turn series.
THE UNTOLD TALE
Book One of The Accidental Turn Series
(Reuts Publications, Dec 2015)
This book follows Pip, who is pulled against her will into the epic fantasy novel series she’s loved since she was a teenager. However, the world is darker, and far more dangerous than she could have ever predicted, especially when it turns out the hero is a much bigger misogynistic ass than she knew. Pip knows how to circumnavigate the Hero’s Journey and the pitfalls and loopholes of this particular world – but what will happen to her beloved characters outside of the comfort of the fantasy they were written for? And what happens when it’s not the male-power-fantasy hero, but the hero’s overlooked and bullied little brother who proves to be her biggest champion?
Prequel Comic for The Accidental Turn Series
A prequel comic to the series, written by J.M. Frey and Illustrated by K.B. Fesmire, which chronicles what happened to Pip before the start of The Untold Tale.

An Accidental Novella
(Reuts Publications, April 2015)
For seventeen years, Bevel Dom has been the author of his own story. Or, rather, he’s been the author of The Tales of Kintyre Turn, the illustrated scrolls chronicling his adventures as first the squire, then the colleague, and then finally the friend of legendary hero Kintyre Turn. But there are some stories that Bevel doesn’t write down, doesn’t tell to eager audiences of bright-eyed boys and sighing bar wenches in taverns. Some he simply folds into his heart and keeps. This is one of those tales.
In this prequel novella, fans of The Accidental Turn Series are offered a glimpse into the lives of Bevel Dom and Kintyre Turn shortly before their arrival at Turn Hall and the events that follow.
THE FORGOTTEN TALE
Book Two of The Accidental Turn Series
(Reuts Publications, December 2016)
Forsyth Turn has finally become a hero—however reluctantly. But now that Lucy Piper has married him and they’ve started a family in her world, his adventuring days are behind him. Yet not all is as it should be. Beloved novels are disappearing at an alarming rate, not just from the minds of readers like Pip, but from bookshelves as well. Almost as if they had never been. Almost like magic.
Forsyth fears that it is his fault—that Pip’s childhood tales are vanishing because he, a book character, has escaped his pages. But when he and Pip are sucked back into The Tales of Kintyre Turn against their will, they realize that something much more deadly and dire is happening. The stories are vanishing from Forsyth’s world too. So Forsyth sets out on a desperate journey across Hain to discover how, and why, the stories are disappearing… before their own world vanishes forever.
In this clever follow-up to The Untold Tale, The Forgotten Tale questions what it means to create a legacy, and what we owe to those who come after us.

An Accidental Novella
(Reuts Publications, April 2017)
After seventeen years of adventuring, Bevel Dom and Kintyre Turn are finally returning home.
Forsyth Turn—brother to Bevel’s long-time questing partner and newly Paired lover—has left both Hain and a hell of a lot of responsibility behind. He’s bequeathed the Shadow’s Mask and position of the king’s spymaster to Bevel, and the seat of Lysse Chipping to Kintyre. It’s a lot to take on, and it will mean an end to questing forever if they do. But it might also mean a chance for Bevel and Kintyre to find a Happily Ever After of their own.
Unfortunately, Turn Hall seems to be infested with eligible young maidens out to snatch away the freshly returned Lord of Lysse, determined to destroy the fragile happiness that Bevel has built. Faced with more decisions than he was prepared for, Bevel battles with foes unfamiliar, making him wonder if life on the road really wasn’t all that bad. But if there’s one thing Bevel Dom isn’t afraid to do, it’s fight for the man he loves.
An Accidental Turn novella set between The Untold Tale and The Forgotten Tale, Arrivals follows Kintyre Turn and Bevel Dom as they step into Forsyth’s vacated life and face the surprising responsibilities he’s left in his wake.
THE SILENCED TALE
Book Three of The Accidental Turn Series
(Reuts Publications, December 2017)
Forsyth Turn never wanted to be a hero. And yet, even in the Overrealm, a hero is what he’ll be.
After their last adventure in Hain, Forsyth expected to return to the life he’d built with Pip and Alis, his days of magic and heroics behind him. But then Pip starts suffering night terrors laced with images of glowing ivy and Elgar Reed calls with fears of bizarre threats and a man garbed all in black.
But there is no magic in the Overrealm. Forsyth refuses to believe that anything other than mundane coincidence is at work—until Elgar’s stalker leaves him a message too eerie and specific to ignore. Now, he has to face the possibility that Pip’s dreams and Elgar’s fears are connected . . . and that maybe they weren’t the only ones to escape the pages of The Tales of Kintyre Turn.
And if that’s the case, it’s going to take more than a handful of heroes to save the day this time. It’s going to take an army. Luckily, Reed fans are legion.
A stunning conclusion to the series, The Silenced Tale is a genre-bending whirlwind that breathes life into the idea that the power of story lies not just with the creator, but with the fans who love it.

THE ACCIDENTAL COLLECTION
An Accidental Turn Collection
(REUTS Publications, Spring 2018)
Forsyth Turn had no desire to be a hero, but that’s what he became. Bevel Dom spent his whole life telling stories, never realizing he was part of one of the most popular ones of all time. Kintyre Turn never thought he could be more than a wandering hero with a sword, until he reinvented himself as a compassionate Lord and kind father. And Lucy Piper never believed that magic, quests, or The Tales of Kintyre Turn ever really existed; but they do, and they shaped her life in ways she never could have foreseen.
This collection offers insight and behind-the-scenes commentary on the events that happened both on and off the page during the writing of the series, poetry and fan-composed songs, the full version of the prequel comic “Ivy”, the full text of the never-before in print short stories “Home” , “Happiness”, and “Health”, the novellas “Arrivals” and “Ghosts”, a brand-new exclusive novella “Magic”, Elgar Reed’s script for the ConClusion short film “Origins”, and deleted scenes.
Come along as Frey invites readers to return to the world of Hain one last time, and discover The Accidental Turn that launched a series.
Brigit O’Regan (a.k.a. “The Cosplay Violin Girl”) has written Forsyth’s lullabye from The Forgotten Tale.
