A Lasniniar Reading Guide

So I have quite a few titles in this series on my hands now… I usually have to take a bit of time before starting each one to figure out when the story takes place in the whole scheme of things—who’s alive, who’s dead, etc. I realize the quantity of titles in this world might seem intimidating, so I thought this might be a good place to sort everything out.

The World of Lasniniar Series

These books are numbered, so it’s not rocket science, but I know the whole prequel thing can throw people off. Here’s what we have so far:

Light Chasers (Book 0)

Legacy Hunter (Book 0.75)

Soul Seeker (Book 1)

Shadow Stalker (Book 1.5)

Storm Rider (Book 2)

Bond Forger (Book 2.5)

Wave Runners (Book 3)

Godmaker (Book 4)

Void Walker (Book 5)

Harbingers (Book 6)

 
When people ask me where they should start, I tend to weird them out by giving a vague response. This is because the order I’ve written the books in is sometimes not the same as the chronological order they take place. (Confusing, I know. My brain works in mysterious/nonlinear ways.)

Soul Seeker is the first book I wrote in the series, so in my mind, it’s the place to start because everything radiates outward from that point. But I know many people like to read things in order, which is understandable (not to mention logical). Whether you start with Light Chasers or Soul Seeker, I definitely recommend reading all the previous numbered titles before starting Storm Rider, since it ties them all together.

Legends of Lasniniar

These are shorter adventures that take place during various points in time. They are for readers who are already familiar with the World of Lasniniar and its characters. I would recommend reading the numbered books in the series first to avoid getting completely lost.

If you’re someone who likes to read everything in order, here is a listing of all the titles released so far, and the numbered books of the series, so you can see how they all fit together from a chronological standpoint:
