Chronological List

CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER AND BOOK LIST PAGE:

 

I get this question so many times… is there a chronological order to my novel? The answer is, for the most part, NO. There is no chronological order. All of my novels are designed so you can read any one of them, at any time, and not have to have read other books to understand what is going on. I say this because nearly every novel has cross over characters – in other words, heroes or secondary characters that have appeared in other books. I like to say that my books have ‘groups’, like family groups, and the group that they belong to will be indicated right on the cover. The exception to the family group rule is, of course, the series – Dragonblade, Dr. Trent/Dr. Burton, etc.  It helps if you read them in order but it’s not crucial. You can still figure out what’s going on.

That being  said, there are some novels to read in conjunction with others – or before others – but, again, you can still read them in any order because chronology is not necessary to understand what is going on.
As I mentioned, I have many crossover heroes (and crossover secondary characters) that appear in other books – for the heroes, some of them appear pre-their novel, some of them appear post, but that doesn’t mean it’s chronological. They just happen to appear as a cross over and it has nothing to do with the storyline of ‘their’ novel.

I hope this helps because I can’t get more specific than this. You may run across secondary characters that have appeared in other books, or brothers or relatives of heroes in other books, but that would be too lengthy to list. My advice is to just start reading and be pleasantly surprised when you run across characters you’ve already read about, and if a character has the same last name as a hero in another book, they are definitely related somehow (cousin, brother, ancestor, descendant, etc.). There ARE no coincidences in my world if someone shares the same last name.

Most of all – do yourself a favor and get the Reader’s Guide, THE MEDIEVAL WORLD OF KATHRYN LE VEQUE, on Amazon.  It contains all of the great houses and family groupings, and is invaluable when navigating my 50+ books.  You can get it here: The Medieval World of Kathryn Le Veque on Amazon

BOOK LIST:

For those of you who like to read related series, here are the family groups. They do NOT need to be read in any order, but I have put them in order of the year the book takes place (so a son will appear after his father, and so forth). Hope this helps all of you OCD readers! 🙂
