Lasniniar Reading Guide

Since this is an ongoing series that I’ve been writing for some time (and often out of order), the original numbering system I was using (with novels Light Chasers as Book 0 and Kinslayer as Book 0.5, and short adventures Legacy Hunter, Shadow Stalker, and Bond Forger as Books 0.75, 1.5, and 2.5 respectively) was getting both complicated and confusing.

With the reboot of the updated covers, formatting, etc., I’ve also decided on a much simpler system going forward. Those three short adventures mentioned above (Legacy Hunter, Shadow Stalker, and Bond Forger) are being moved over to Legends of Lasniniar and out of the series numbering system. (I wrote all three of them before I started the Legends of Lasniniar supplemental series, which is really where they belong.) Light Chasers will become Book 1, Kinslayer Book 2, and so on for the rest of the novels.

The overall order of the books is the same–only the numbering will change, with only the novels receiving actual series numbers and all shorts remaining as unnumbered Legends of Lasniniar. (Numbering Legends of Lasniniar is pointless, as I am continuing to add new adventures to the series from pretty much every point in time.)

The Legends of Lasniniar are entry-level adventures. You could easily read any of them to start and not feel lost. (Although there will be mentions to events that have already taken place, so there will be spoilers.)

I’m hoping that moving Light Chasers to Book 1 makes things less confusing/intimidating for new readers, and it also potentially opens the door for a pre-Light Chasers novel somewhere down the road as the new Book 0. 😉 (Or maybe a new supplemental, prequel series? Origins of Lasniniar? I like to keep my options open.)

Anyway, this is the updated reading order listing, which I will do my best to maintain as more titles in the series are released.
